He says that it is something he likes to do to the health of people and find out what's happening in the area. But this morning, took the walk a completely different turn.
" I heard that someone was shouting behind me. Sometimes you hear it when you walk around town. But now I saw that there was someone running towards me and gormar, " says Thomas Ardenfors.
people often come up to him and want to discuss different things, which Stockholm Directly was the first to report on. And he is also accustomed to take care of people who are annoyed – but this time it was on a completely different level.
There was hate in his eyes. I have never faced the kind of hatred, " he says.
Thomas Ardenfors bar at the time a portfolio in one hand and a holdall in the other, and says that he directly asked the man what he wanted. Then the man started making different gestures and raised voice.
