Remarkably, as the police, which are supposed to clamp down on gangland crime, have proved uninterested in seeing CCTV footage of the incident, let alone able to uphold law and order.
Local police commissioner Peter Veje said he understood the locals' frustration, nevertheless, citing understaffing as a major problem.
"We have to seize these young men with fingers in the cookie jar, which gives us a hard time. But we have many things to take care of in Nørrebro, and we only have the resources we have," Veje said.
"You all have opportunities. All you need to get on and find a job is education," Støjberg told the crowd, according to a report in the tabloid BT.
Nørrebro is largely hailed as one of Denmark's most multicultural districts, with roughly 30 percent of its population being of foreign descent.
