Copenhagen by Night
Posted by Exile on February 16, 2008
The last week has been a bit rough if you live in the centre of Copenhagen, especially around Nørrebro. Fires, noise and screaming sirens have been a part of the evening entertainment for all the residents of that area of town.
The whole hooha started following the arrest of five people of “other origin than Danish” for planning the murder of Kurt Westergaard. Strike one for the PET, the police intelligence service. The muslim street wasn’t going to let that go by unnoticed. Since then, there has been a string of nightly carbequeues and container bonfires plus the destruction of public property such as schools. The police have done what they could, the fire departments have put out the fires as best they could and life has otherwise gone on unabated.
The police have been frustrated by the youngsters hit and run tactics. They obviously can’t be on every street corner all the time and the youths have been taking advantage of this. The police however, are getting a remarkable number of these hooligans under control and are making arrests. This is probably due to the citizens of the most affected areas. They are fed up with the trouble and are now taking photos or video film of the young jihadis and sending them on to the police. Who said filming the streets wouldn’t help in crime control?
The reprinting of the Motoons has been used as an excuse to riot. But any excuse would have done the trick. Do they even need an excuse any more? I think the public mind is turning. The Danes will not put up with this forever. Perhaps as a result of this, the muslim “Fathers Group”, a loose organisation of muslim men with children of differing ages has been out on the streets and is trying to dampen the activities of these vandals. They obviously don’t want to risk the growing threat of deportation instead of integration for the actions of their wayward kids.
All in all, it hasn’t been anywhere near as bad as the rioting in Paris was. In fact, one can’t even say there was a riot. Just a continuing wave of criminal activity concentrated on burning cars and containers.
While I’m on the subject of burning cars, I just want to make it clear.. anyone, and I mean anyone, hanging around my car at night had better look out. I will whack ’em first and ask them who they are and what they want afterwards.
See.. I’ve already had enough.
