Denmark isolates Europe

In justice on September 29, 2018 at 04:48

The Danish police has blocked the access to both the bridge over the Great Belt and the Oresund Bridge to Sweden. Later they demanded that the ferries to both Germany and Sweden should stop their activities. An alleged crime the police will not inform the public about seems to be the reason.

Later the police raided an apartment on Vesterbro in Copenhagen. It seems that the neighborhood is not as transformed as the investors of new apartment buildings in the Carlberg area wants us to believe that it has been. It used to be for ordinary people and for tourists coming to see and buy women for social activities. There have been cases where ordinary people and businesses have been forced out, so rich people could move in.

A farm on the island of Fyen was also raided.

Maybe it is a real crime the police investigate, maybe it is the start of political reforms where the influence the ordinary citizens have on politics will be reduced. We do not know and do no longer care now where the Danish parliament has outsourced a large number of decisions they should make to the European Union.

For whatever reason Europe is now isolated.

Perhaps it is a necessary step. For the ordinary Dane it does not pose a problem. A growing number of Danes choose not to leave their hometown for education and career making the choice of working with the few available options you find outside the 5 Danish cities out in the wasteland called “The Rotten Banana“. We are seeing a reduced number of commuters, The few tourists who were bothered by the police just have to live with the actions of the police.

Also construction of the Danish border fence will continue despite protests from the European Union with the illness as excuse. Perhaps all these activities will bring an end to the massive numbers of shooting incidents which have forced several schools in Copenhagen not to have activities like meetings in the evening. The public life in parts of Copenhagen is now reduced like Sarajevo in the 1990’s. None want to be on the streets risking being a victim for a random shooting. Many Danes wanted a wall instead of the fence but Danevirke is now located down in Germany so we had to start over and it was costly, so a fence it became.

Something rotten in Denmark – Yes. The police interferes in local businesses causing disruption

In justice on August 16, 2018 at 17:05

For many years busses in Denmark has to go through mandatory audit every year, sometime more often depending of their tasks. Standard procedure is that the busdriver takes the bus for a short drive where he employs the brakes so many times that the brakes are warmed up. Then he drives to a privat owned technical inspection center which does the audit. In Denmark the state was forced to give the inspection of vehicles to private operators due to a rule from the European Union.

The problem with this procedure is that the police now stops busses on the street with cold brakes. It means that the police determine that the busses are illegal while many of them have just passed an inspection.

Today I read in the news that the police has checked 45 busses who is used as replacement for comuter trains operating between Copenhagen and the town of Frederikssund. The busses have been operating since May and they should in fact stop working next week when the trains can run again after the tracks were repaired. 20 of the busses were banned from further driving.

It sounds to me like the message is politically. If it was a question about security, they would have checked the busses back in May when they started to drive on the busy roads.

This summer the police have stopped a number of busses at sports events and music events. Every time a high number of busses were banned. In my mind it is a system error and the police is only interested in showing the public how important they are supposed to be.

If you stop the ordinary busses doing public transport on every road for checks, you could put Denmark to a full stop.

It is technically impossible to manage two things:

  1. Making sure that the temperature is manageable. Busses are either too hot or too cold inside depending of the time of the year. In the old days the drivers manage to cope by sipping small amounts of alcohol but now no person make a living of being a bus driver. What Trish Regan never understood is that 50 percent of the reason while Denmark have a smaller percentage of people being unemployed is that people are forced to work. It is called flex-jobs and work-environment testing where people work for their unemployment benefit or to a lower salary compared with their co-worker without earning the right to vacation. Bus drivers are leftovers from other businesses being moved by case workers to work as bus-drivers.
  2. Breaks on busses only work when they are warmed up, just as sport cars like in Formula One perform better when their tires have the right temperature.
  3. I hope that the justice department will intervene and stop the police from doing these public stunts. They are not improving traffic safety by doing these small spotchecks. If they really wanted to check busses they could stop all busses near the central station of Copenhagen and Aarhus and put the public transport to a full stop.

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:

Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Gang Activity in Copenhagen (United States of America, Department of State, U.S. Embassy in Denmark)

Gang war in Denmark: US embassy has a message to tourists

In justice, politics on August 20, 2017 at 06:27

It has become dangerous to visit Denmark. Gang wars caused by social unrest and lack of cultural assimilation of immigrants has resulted in a massive number of incidents are young people are trying to learn how to conduct proper drive-by shooting. However, they are still untrained and so far only innocent by-standers have been the victms when they prove unable to hit the intended targets hitting those who just happen to pass the intended victims.

So people with absolutely no connection to the gangs are victims and it could easily hit random tourist because gang members sometime help relative working to taxi drivers and they shop everyday goods just like ordinary citizens and tourists.

Lack of cultural assimilation has caused this. In the old days on Ellis Island many immigrants changed their names so they were more American and they worked hard learning to speak English. In Denmark you find many old people who have lived 30-40 years in Denmark and they have never learned to speak Danish. They have settled living with a partner who worked lowpaid jobs while they maintained the household which they didn’t the knowledge of the Danish language to do. At the same time it provided some type of comfort for their partner who knew they would not be unfaitful. And we Danish taxpayers actually paid for this!

So we are to blame for the gang war. No doubt about that. We could have removed children from families who were unable to teach their children the Danish language so the public schools had to start learning children how to speak Danish, calculating and reading at the same time which put them behind their classmates in school from day 1. We could have etablished military academies for youth who wanted to wear a kind of uniform and belong to a community, so they didn’t have to join a gang to do that. A place where young people want to be and excel academically, not a punishment.

But we didn’t put up demands and requirements for people who enters Denmark starting to live here. We didn’t ask them to change their names to something our native tongue can speak. So we are paying the price and because Denmarks policy against crime is victim-disarmment there is nothing to do but to isolate ourselves.

That is why it is so important to warn tourists. They tend to walk the streets trying to see as much of Denmark and Copenhagen as possible. That makes them targets. In fact I feel that the U.S. Embassy message is soft. What about the businessmen, exchange students and investments in Denmark?

I believe that they should seriously consider to redraw some of them! McDonalds on Noerrebro has several times been the victim of vandalism during the riots which happened now and then where the police lose control of parts of Copenhagen for some days before they are able to allocate forces so they can retake control of the streets. Right now the majority of our police force are guarding our borders in order to prevent a total collapse of our country due to uncontrolled immigration of so-called refugees from Africa.

We do not have the number of policemen to guard the rest of Denmark and certainly not to fight the gang wars as it looks now.

Denmark has never been so much under pressure. Crime is spreading. The center of Copenhagen are under siege of beggars from Romania, the Czech republic and Bulgaria who can enter Denmark legally because they use the free movement of employees within the European Union to come here.

They live of house invasions, bullying homeless Danes for money, thefts and trick games fooling tourists and others who falls for their tricks. And because they are considered possible employees looking for jobs, they can stay in Denmark legally out of touch from the police who have to catch them red-handed. But with virtually every policeman stationed on the borders how should this happen?

You are in possible danger if you visit Denmark now!

Take care!

Select another country if you really want to go abroad!

Medical personnel will assist Danish police when arresting mentally ill persons

In justice on February 6, 2016 at 23:14

This week it was announced that Danish police will have a doctor or a nurse with them when they are going to collect people with mental disturbances and it is about time that they found money for this again. The risk that the police end up shooting the person they were going to take for evaluation or treatment is too big.

There have been a number of cases in Denmark which ended in tragedy. Most known in the Danish public was a case where a mental patient in a 7-11 store was riddled with bullets while he was lying down waiting to be cuffed. Thoughts of calling for even more backup in this case was considered but was decided against due to the structural damage of the building as result of the initial shooting. A cached link back then explain.

Shot by the Police

A thorough investigation into the lethal shots fired by Danish police.

In 2006, Hans Jørgen Tønnesen, a mentally ill man, was shot and killed by the Danish police in a 7-Eleven store in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. The official statement was that Tønnesen went berserk with a knife, thus forcing the policemen to shoot in self-defense.

However – a further investigation into the statements of the two policemen revealed that they weren’t coherent. Furthermore, a reconstruction of the events in 7-Eleven indicated that the officers might not have been as threatened, as they themselves claimed to have been.

I was responsible for a 20-minute piece on the episode in the TV2 program ‘Dags Dato’. A piece that contributed to the case being reopened by the Danish court system.

In this very publicized Danish case is was an adult but what if the person the police should collect was a child? Would the loss of the child be something the parents left behind could live with?

For an answer to this question we have to look across the ocean. November 2012 the police in Stafford County found a car left by the driver. A quick search revealed that the car belonged to a single mother living nearby. Of course the police knew that it most likely wasn’t the mother who might have driven the car when they looked at their computer. There was a 17 year old son with a history of low attendance at the school. So the police called for backup from a neighboring county and basically raided the home. The aggressive approach led the boy to run into the kitchen which as in most homes contains knives. Now the boy could be considered to be armed. From that point there was nothing the mother or the boy could have done to prevent the tragic event which took place. The boy ended up dead.

For the society just a number in a long line of juveniles with smaller mental issues who are shot by the police; for the mother it was a tragedy. In the same period many families experienced the same. Just as little as a dispute over loud music would end up in a kill.

For this mother it also meant the end of her life. Grief took a toll on her life and it ended January 19, 2016 on the very day her boy would have turned 21 if he hadn’t given the police the excuse to exercise the use of their weapons.

The petition for a proper investigation into the death of her son can still be seen on the Internet. However if the police should decide for a new investigation it would not help the now deceased mother.

It is very simple. When you deal with people suffering from illness you cannot expect them to react normal or rationally. You need to bring people with the right kind of education to secure that the situation is handled in a way where loss of lives become minimized.

That’s why I was happy that Denmark now add medical staff to routine calls when people are being picked up for mental evaluation.
