Police: Allow Sex in All Dutch Parks
NIS News ^ | March 2008

Posted on 03/08/2008 9:35:13 AM PST by knighthawk

AMSTERDAM, 08/03/08 - The police's National Diversity Expertise Centre (LECD) wants sex allowed in all public parks in the Netherlands. The police institute has advised the cities to follow the example of Amsterdam, De Telegraaf newspaper reported Friday.

In Amsterdam's Vondelpark, owners of dogs let off the leash can be fined, but sex will shortly be permitted. "Why should we try to maintain something that is actually impossible to maintain, which also causes little bother for others and for a certain group actually signifies much pleasure?" says Paul van Grieken, the responsible Alderman in the Oud-Zuid district of Amsterdam.

Van Grieken confirmed that the plan to tolerate public sex in Vondelpark is part of a draft version of new rules of conduct for the city's best-known park. The regulations are to come into force after the summer. "Of course there are strict rules attached. Thus, condoms must always be cleared away, it must never take place in the neighbourhood of children's playgrounds and the sex must be restricted to the evening and night-time."

The draft memorandum says that fines will be maintained for dogs running around off the leash that, for example, cause nuisance to sunbathing or cycling users of the park. "The research showed that many people find this disturbing," according to the alderman.

LECD is now calling on Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht to tolerate 'cruising' gays in all their parks. In a letter to the administrators of the three cities, the police institute says that by regulating sex in public, the safety of homosexuals from 'queer-bashers' can be better guaranteed.

Thus, it says in the recommendations that "officers must not disturb the activities, as long as they do not cause any actual nuisance" and they would "only have to take corrective action if there is a question of actual offensive behaviour that is visible from the public path."

Homosexuals' organisation COC is pleased that the Amsterdam Oud-Zuid district is to be the first to tolerate sex in the Vondelpark. "Cruising is something belonging to all time and banning it does not work anyway. They do it surreptitiously and mostly without others being annoyed by it. But homos at cruising spots are often attacked. By now agreeing rules of behaviour on this, safety can be increased," according to COC Amsterdam chairman Dennis Boutkan.

In the same country, they want to ban a movie critical of islam, yet having sex in a public park should be allowed. Yes liberalism...

They’ve had homosexual marriage legal 7 years now and they still have enough problems with cruisers(actually with the “gay-bashers”) that they’re actually advocating making public sex in parks legal. That’s obscene.

When you set the speed limit at 55, people tend to drive in the 60-70 range. I bet that principle applies to sex in the park rules too.

This is what Europeans and other liberals mean when they use the word liberty. They mean the right to screw in public. They definitely do NOT mean the right to run your own business, the right to free speech, or the right to raise your own children.

It’s certainly going to prevent their politicians from getting into scandals for being caught “breaking the law” by having anonymous gay sex in the park.

And why prohibit it during the day or at childrens’ playgrounds? Is this a public acknowledgement that it IS improper?

Amsterdam -- 1996... witnessed crowds of freaks having sex at a concert in the park... not only that it was some kind of gay pride weekend ... boss' limo was surrounded with naked people on parade... then I was confronted on the street with painted naked people with fruit glued onto their bodies... absolutely astonishing at the time.

Have never accepted an invitation to go view the gardens since... lol

Johnson City Tennessee....
A two-week-long investigation by Johnson City police led to the arrest of 40 men for indecent behavior in city parks.
The undercover investigation, conducted primarily in Winged Deer and Buffalo Mountain parks, is just the beginning for authorities, who say homosexual activities there have become a “serious problem.”

“Our parks are for family use. People should not be exposed to this while they are out there with their family or trying to enjoy the walking trails,” said Johnson City Police Chief John Lowry. “They are not built nor maintained for sexual activity, be it homosexual activity or heterosexual activity.”

After receiving several complaints about illegal acts, undercover investigators spent much of September working to find problem areas within the parks and arrest those committing the crimes.

“Part of this took place off the paved trails. There’s a thing out there (at Winged Deer Park) they’ve evidently termed the ‘Man Cave,’ ” Lowry said. “It’s a good way off the paved trail. It’s underbrush that’s grown up and resembles a cave.”

According to investigators, men frequent the Man Cave at all times of day specifically to take part in sexual activities with other men.

During their investigation, undercover officers often would strike up a conversation with a man who was approaching the trail leading to the Man Cave. The conversation quickly would turn sexual and, many times, led to proposals for sex, police said.

Several men exposed their genitals to the officers, while a few even groped the investigators without being provoked.

Authorities said Monday they fear the two parks have become known, “by word of mouth,” as places for such illegal activity. Those arrested in the recent sting live in various areas of Tennessee, Virginia and North Carolina. They range in age from 26 to 85.

At least two of the men hold positions of trust within a community. Brent T. Leach, 52, of Johnson City, reportedly works as a teacher within the Johnson City school system while police said Robert E. Riley, 55, of Rogersville, is a pastor at a Rogersville church.

Of the arrests, 31 were made at Winged Deer Park while nine were made at Buffalo Mountain Park. Still, investigators said both facilities are equally infiltrated by the problem.

In an effort to eliminate areas of opportunity within the parks, authorities said they plan to destroy the Man Cave at Winged Deer Park, possibly with a controlled burn.

That comes as good news to Assistant City Manager Charlie Stahl, who complained about the inappropriate activity after witnessing it firsthand while on a tour of city parks in June.

Stahl reportedly walked into a bathroom at Winged Deer Park and saw two men “about to engage in sexual activity.” The men were removed from the park only moments before a child came to use the bathroom.

“I can only imagine if those two men were not removed, what that little boy would have seen,” Stahl said. “Our parks are for families. They’re not for this anti-social behavior. That is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”

Some of the men charged in last month’s investigation already have gone through the court system, while others still await hearings.

According to officials, all of the cases will be “vigorously” prosecuted.

“The men were removed from the park only moments before a child came to use the bathroom.”

This is why I appreciate the new movement to include “family” restrooms in some stores (Target does it)

Very large to make it accessible for a stroller, and a mom can bring her children into the bathroom without worrying about sending young boys into the men’s room alone.

This reminds me of Canada. Except our situation is that we have banned the smoking of cigarettes and cigars in most public places, however, our own government issues free safe crack smoking kits to addicts. Smoking crack in the street is ok, but smoking a cigarette is a no-no. Hey, makes perfect sense, right?

Build bleachers and make it a spectator sport. They can then charge admission and add an entertainment TAX. You know, a TAX for the children.

I use to fly KLM to Europe a few times a year via Amsterdam as I had some good friends that lived there and I'd lay over a couple of days to visit. At that time and I'm talking 20 yrs. ago drug pushers approached you on the street in broad daylight offering a wide variety of dope. Needles were left laying on the sidewalks and in the grass and most residents seemed oblivious. Prostitutes displayed there charms in store front windows as most people just walked nonchalantly by. I could never understand how so many people could except this kind of deviant behavior. My friend and her family could no longer take it and finally immigrated to Australia.

Since common sense leaders can no longer be elected, I would think that we will continue down this path until food becomes scarce and/or beyond the reach of the average budget - then the explosion will occur, be forcefully put down, and the ‘arbitrary power’ established.
