Now it is 5 weeks since Denmark deported one of its citizens to a showtrial in Miami.
Still this case marked a sad end to an innocent Denmark where we preserve the safety of our citizens.
Last week was marked by a religious attack on our youth. For some reason the most extremist movements in the United States seem to bring ammunition to an attack against our youth culture.
We are very aware that our children drink alcohol. In fact they drink as we did. We have made careers and we are earning good money so it didn’t send us in the direction of being an alcoholic. It didn’t destroy our life, so why can we not allow our children to live like we did?
I don’t understand it. I happen to visit one of our departments in Taastrup. A neigborhood near our firm was in the news this morning. Children down to age 14 are watching out for the criminal gangs wearing bulletproof vests. I know for at fact that these teenagers don’t drink. The conclusion is clear: Choosing not to drink alcohol can marginalize you and send to in the direction of a life in crime.
Second it was announced that our government will lower the age of criminal responsibility. The result will a massive increase of minors in jail and we turn to the results of the 1990’s incarcerate of all solutions offered at that time the experiences from the United States state that jail as tool does not work. In fact they now know that it is too costly and they are seeking new ways.
Week 40 was just a sad week.
