Peace-agreement in Denmark

In justice on December 15, 2017 at 05:59

It seems that the supreme command of both the youth gangs Brothas and Loyal to Familia are ready to enter a peace-agreement.

This seems to be a possibility after private negociators have used the last months cease-fire in Copenhagen to bring the leaders together.

I cross my fingers. It is a light in a dark time. All the families in the areas affected by the gang war has missed seing their children playing in the street, sport clubs have been shut down, people have been confined their apartments. Short to say – life had come to a halt.

What is left is for the gangs to tag the areas they control in an orderly manner, so people know who the authorities on the streets are.

As for the Danish central government they are not a party in the peace-agreement. Their role has been limited to send police-cars through the area giving the illusion that they are in control. But the over-extended policeforce where most of the Danish police force are stationed along the borders because a number of countries in the European Union are neglecting their duties to take in the number of immigrants they were supposed to house just like we do, cannot be the local cop you go to if you have problems.

Instead the local population have to go the gangs who are offering protection for a small fee. It should not be like that but it is the best we can do because we on European level have been let down by countries like Poland and Hungary.

I really will pray that the peace-agreement will stick. Otherwise I have to point out that embassies are warning against the gang war trying to keep tourists safe:

A blog about a terrible place in Mexico

In culture on December 9, 2017 at 05:50

It took too long for the authorities in Mexico to close Casa by the Sea down. Many teenagers got their future derailed. Instead of partying and celebrate life before it became a life filled with commitments like we adults live every single day, they got locked up.

Short to say they also were put through a system which left most of them with a need to fight post-traumatic stress disorder for the rest of their lives. Many lost the college fund, family had set up for them, leaving them with a future working in unskilled jobs for low pay because the people running the schools did not care much about the teenagers. They just wanted the money.

The blog is called Haunted Places (link).

It is not the work of Domestic Prisoners of Conscience which I volunteer for but I wish it was.

Casa by the Sea is a product of the 1980’s and 1990’s, the world would have been better of with if it had never existed. The war against drugs were a failure. Instead of focusing on where it was produced which could have been dealt with by invading countries where the narcotics were produced and regulating the medical industry very tight so doctors do not over-medicate their patients just because they are sponsored to it by the firms who produce the medication, they attacked those who were caught in substance abuse.

Substance abuse is an illness. Illness you treat professional and with care for the patients. At Casa by the Sea there was no care, no love for the patients. They were punished even more severe than street muggers.

Lives were destroyed at Casa by the Sea. No question about that. But does that mean that the spirits of those who died after their stay have returned to the buildings?

I do not know. What do you think?

The British people do not owe one single cent to the European Union

In politics on December 7, 2017 at 20:19

It find the entire talks about United Kingdom leaving the European Union bizarre. This is a country which have suffered greatly just as Denmark because they said Yes by mistake in 1973. Now they want out.

The solution is simple. The people working for the European Union leaves the United Kingdom. They put up barb wire next to the borders to Ireland and then it is it.

They do not owe any money because they paid in 1973.

It is time that we Danes who just want to look at our Danish TV-channels which they are against also take a stand and ask for a vote so Denmark could leave the European Union.

We will not finanse all students in the European Union. They do not have the skills like Danish students. We want our early retirement back.

I support ordinary people in the United Kingdom who wants a hard exit. I will work for that Denmark can leave the European Union too.

First official mayor appointed

In politics on December 1, 2017 at 20:31

In the town Lyngby the appointed the first offical mayor after the election. I guess that they were that fast to ensure that they corruption will not make life hard. Years ago some of the members of the city counsil backstabbed the mayor who got the most of the votes. He believed that he would be allowed 4 more years. Big was his surprise when dirty deals had been done in secret.

In back politics in Denmark is as dirty as it can be when we talk about who is going to be mayor in Danish cities. People abandon the party which just had elected them just so they can get something personally. It is quiet common.

That why most people do not care. They are tired of this but it cannot be changed.

It has become a tradition to backstab people in local politics.

A Danish woman victim of xenophopia in the United States in a new Kickstarter Campaign

In culture on November 26, 2017 at 08:09

In 1997 a Danish woman was arrested in New York because she left her baby carriage with her daughter inside it outside a restaurant like we used in Denmark to back then.

None had informed her that New York (before a mayor cleaned it up a bit) was a far more dangerous place than Denmark and that was the reason parents ignored one of the most important lesson taught Danish women during their upbringing: “Small babies need to develop their lungs. They need to sleep outside inside their baby carriage in order to do that”.

In the United States they had already they had already switched to a strategy where they took medication for every medical challenge instead which has since led the country into the massive health care crisis with prescription drugs.

So the woman was arrested and the child put temporary into the foster care system until the Danish embassy intervened and arranged to set her free.

However, she never got any compensation for the wrongful arrest. Not even a sorry from a city where they live of tourists. It is something which should make every person wanting to visit New York think twice.

20 years after the woman has launched a kickstarter project where she is trying to raise money so she can get her book published.

The book project is called:

A Worm in The Apple – The Pramcase of New York

Why do Danes in general see this as an act of xenophobia?

For once the man the woman dined together with was a bit darker in the skin than the woman. Mixed color relationships were still controversial back then. Most Danes back then believed that was the main reason officer Neil Pero made the decision to arrest the couple.

Even her lawyer back then took the word in his mouth when the lawsuit the woman filed did not end successfully.

But we have to remember that it was back in 1997. Today no Danes take their children to New York. Even parents with teenagers are encouraged to leave the children at home. The constitutional rights, teenagers in Denmark aged over 16 have allowing them to buy and drink alcohol as long as the alcohol percentage is below 14.5 cannot be granted in New York but does not stop there. Even in private parents cannot allow their children to drink alcohol as Danish customs allow them once they are confirmed at the age of 13 or 14 if this drinking is discovered by others and reported to authorities. Then both parents can children can be arrested and punished!

There are absolutely no reason to bring your children to the United States in general. Not as a tourist. Not as exchange student. Not living with their parents if the parents work there for some time. Danish schools do not grant credits for time spent at schools in the United States as every exchange student will know because the schools in the United States do not have friday bars so they are left without any social education.

But even here in Denmark, time has changed. Central parts of Copenhagen where they now enjoy a temporary ceasefire in the gangwar used to neighborhoods where bullets were flying random in the streets. It is not a place to leave your child in – bulletproof baby carriage or not. Every morning buses leave Copenhagen with children for forest kindergartens so they are out of harm’s way. We will not go down the medication path leading Denmark into the same health care crisis as they have chosen in Denmark. But time has changed for sure.

So the case was an eyeopener. It showed that our cultures are very different. Last but not least the Internet has made a difference. Today a Danish mother who is so crazy to go to New York and be together with a man who is a bit more dark in his skin will never leave the child outside as we all know that police in New York tend to act xenophobic and shoot first and ask questions later when they face colored suspects.
