Plenty of kids in Copenhagen do graffiti, the area in question though is probably around 30-40%(maybe even a bit higher) of people from the Middle East. I couldn't find a specific number, but the latest number I could find from all of Copenhagen was 18% of people from non western countries.
There's a lot of bad people in that neighborhood and quite a bit of shootings as it's an area for Loyal to Familia gang which is one of the biggest there and it's all people who heritage from the Middle East, also very easy to buy weed and hash on the street there. Copenhagen has three official ghetto areas with general very low employment, one of them is close to where this video was shot. Because of the shootings and gang activity in the area, it's also an "open visitation zone" lot of the time, meaning police are allowed to stop and search anyone they want.
There's also obviously also lots of good people there, especially there are a lot of artists in the area and a good friend of mine who's a painter still lives there. I've lived myself within 200 yards of where the video was shot for over a year, that's how I know.
All that being said, the guy in the video is a gross provocateur and I wouldn't consider him a real journalist at all. He went to that place because he knew there'd be a big chance of a confrontation.
