A Danish man believed to be acting based on patriotism tried to set a mosque in Copenhagen on fire. Pure luck prevented death in this case. The police detained the man and hopefully they will find a state hospital to house him so no further people are put in danger.
However the case shows a heightened tension in the Danish society heavily burdened by the increasing number of asylum seekers at a time where the central government in Copenhagen makes one cut after another in social benefits and hospitals to finance the newcomers.
I am not judging the morale of the asylum seekers who seem to choose Denmark believing that they would experience something better than the countries they come from. If they feel they can look in the mirror and take our money, it is their problem.
I am however concerned with the ability of the Danish authorities to keep peace and safety. Especially outside Copenhagen the police has been worn down and can only work trying to catch people who have driven too fast on the highways. All other police work is neglected because it doesn’t bring profit into the public system.
Where would it take us as a society?
Denmark is on the breaking point failed by the countries in the southern part of Europe who should have kept the asylum seekers there until the politicians in the European Union are finished drinking coffee and can set up some kind of system so every country takes people in based upon how large their population is.
Danish citizens are becoming desperate when they learned that they cannot be housed when they become homeless because the asylum seekers are given priority and the Danes are failed.
I am not sure how it will end but it would not be pretty.
