Brussels MP3 murder

The BBC reports that "80,000 people have taken part in a silent march in Brussels to protest over the murder of a teenager who refused to give thieves his MP3 player".

Silent march and thieves suggests that there is more to this story than the BBC lets on. Sure enough, google "Joe Van Holsbeeck" and you discover that Joe was murdered by thieves of North African descent.

Immediately after the assassination the police inquired whether Joe had made any “racist remarks” whilst been mugged. So what if he had? Would he deserve to die if he made such remarks?
