A young Dane now pays the cost of going on a dangerous adventure. For reasons unknown he decided to work abroad far from the protection of our trade unions, the Friday bars with co-workers. Of course a person who wants to teach children must find it impossible to start a career in Denmark now where the teachers were forced to work long hours for the same salary as they had in the old days. It is understandable that many young persons choose other careers in burger restaurants or shops where they can start working without a long costly education.
But to choose to study or work abroad is stupid if you don’t take some legal precautions. In the United States the first sentence you use when you are greeted by the authorities is “I wan’t a lawyer”. It doesn’t matter what kind of information the police want. You have to insist that you want to help them but not before you have a lawyer.
The young Dane was hit by poor luck. A woman on the job was fired and she named him an abuser as revenge. It didn’t matter that his entire day was recorded on tape or the school had a strict policy which forbade him ever to be alone with a child. The police took him in and told him that they had a rather damaging video of him touching children in private areas on their body and instead of insisting a lawyer they talked him into trying to justify the non-existing video. A clear-cut confession!
I remember one of my father’s school friends who sailed for some years before settling in Brazil working as a law-enforcement. When he visited my father he always told me as a child that good Police-work is not about evidence. It is about luck and the largest and fastest gun.
The young Dane was sent to Rikers. It would only be a question of time before the other inmates find out why he is there and now where his name is up worldwide then they will believe he is guilty and then he will be begging for a deal so he can be labeled as a sex-offender to kicked out of the States to Denmark proving the wrongful accusations and the woman who put the charges up would be able to land a good job at another school.
