Posted on 10/31/2017 7:47:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Are there no-go zones in Europe, or aren't there? Have political control and the power of law enforcement in some urban neighborhoods been tacitly turned over to local Muslim leaders, with even the police taking a hands-off attitude? Across Europe, some politicians, journalists, and police spokespeople continue to deny that such zones exist, although the evidence for their existence becomes increasingly difficult to disavow.
Even as these establishment functionaries continue to insist that no-go zones are a myth, however, news reports are indicating that in several European countries, the policing problem has advanced beyond the mere fact of no-go zones. Earlier this month, for instance, the Dutch newspaper Het Parool reported that throughout the Netherlands, police departments are now so overburdened by radicalization, terrorism, and the influx of asylum seekers that they simply don't have the time to investigate a large percentage of crimes. In Rotterdam, 54% of crime reports are tossed at once, without even a cursory effort to track down a perpetrator; in The Hague, the figure is 48.5%; in Amsterdam, it's a whopping 64.8%. The overall national figure is 56%.
One night nineteen years ago, a few steps away from Muntplein, a busy square in the heart of Amsterdam, I was accosted by a young Muslim man who held a knife on me and demanded my money while a half dozen of his pals hovered threateningly nearby, at canal's edge. More angry than scared, I responded with what may be described as foolish bravado, telling my assailant to hit the road. He backed off, and headed with his friends down the canal, presumably in search of someone else to mug. For my part, I went to the nearest bar and ordered a gin and tonic. I was so stunned that it didn't even occur to me until I was halfway through my second drink that I should've gone immediately to the police. Even all those years ago, I doubted that filing a police report would've made any difference. Today, apparently, it would almost certainly be a waste of time.
The same thing's happening in Britain. On October 16, the Daily Mail reported that every police force in the country was now abandoning inquiries into thousands of 'hard to solve' low-level offences.
What kinds of offenses? The list includes vandalism, theft, burglary and antisocial behaviour, plus minor incidents of grievous bodily harm and car crime.
Of course, these are infractions that are committed, to a wildly disproportionate degree, by Muslims.
The message is clear: if you're the victim of a violation that falls into any one of these categories, you need not bother reporting it, unless you actually know who committed it or have evidence that seems likely to help police identify the perpetrator without too much time or effort. Forget those scenes in movies where cops stare at CCTV footage for hours on end in search of a suspect: under the new British policy, police won't even bother looking at crime-scene videos if the job promises to take more than twenty minutes. Cases will also be abandoned at once if there aren't any viable lines of inquiry, whatever that's supposed to mean. Sara Thornton, head of the National Police Chiefs' Council, defended this new opposite-of-zero-tolerance approach, explaining that we must prioritise so we are using our resources to the best effect and protecting people who need it most.
What are the priorities of UK police? Well, as the London Times noted on October 12, they've been pretty busy the last couple of years collaring people for making offensive remarks online. Last year, at least 3,395 people the real number is probably a good deal higher were arrested for this purported transgression. No one will be surprised to know that the remarks judged to be offensive enough to merit punishment tend to be remarks about Islam. If you're a Muslim who has repeatedly called for the death of infidels, don't worry: the police won't bother you. (A prominent example, cited by the Times, is terror-supporting activist Nadia Chan, who has called Jews parasites and white people swine.) If you're an infidel who has merely complained about Muslims who call for the death of infidels, however, you'd better be ready for a knock at the door.
It's hard not to conclude from all this that the British police or the politicians who give them their marching orders have cast their vote for dhimmitude, choosing to overlook Muslim misdeeds and to focus, instead, on muzzling those who dare to express concern about those misdeeds.
No one familiar with developments in Sweden will be surprised to learn that police policy in that country has also changed in the same way and that the situation sounds, if anything, even worse than in the Netherlands and Britain. On September 12, SVT reported that the investigations of many rape cases were being put off for weeks, even months even when the victims were children, and even when the names of the rapists were known. The number of rap cases that result in prosecutions has also shriveled rapidly from 20% in 2014 to 14% in 2015 to 11% last year.
The alleged reason for this decline? The police say that they have their hands full with murder cases. Of course, Sweden could appropriate more funds for policing; but where to find the money? The nation's treasury is already overburdened by welfare-state payouts to Muslim immigrants.
In each of these countries, then, the police presumably on direction from above have begun to operate by the same suicidal philosophy. Except when dealing with the most monstrous of felonies, they've chosen to use their available resources not to put up a firm resistance to the soft jihad of Muslim lawlessness but, rather, to silence public criticism thereof. So it is that in the Netherlands, Britain, and Sweden, the police whose job, we all grew up thinking, is to protect citizens and maintain order are instead systematically abetting the low-level disorder and destruction that are part and parcel of the ongoing Islamic conquest of Europe.
It is almost like it was planned...
A couple years ago, I was the “victim” of a hit and run by a semi. I use the word victim with hesitation.
I was in a rental and outside of an inconsequential cut on my hand when I fell into a snowbank trying to climb out of a crushed car, I was uninjured. Except my pride when I fell into the snowbank.
The car was a rental so I had no attachment to it or financial loss and the cop and I agreed that the driver may not have even known he hit me.
It was chalked up to some sort of misadventure and forgotten about.
But, a felony should be investigated and prosecuted if the perpetrator is identified. No go zones, when identified should be clearly labeled so real honest citizens don’t ramble in there by mistake. Law enforcement should be given full and total authority to clean the streets using whatever means necessary until the job is done.
Then the citizens must take matters into their own hands. Rise up and beat back the hordes of invaders who are determined to sack & pillage your country & enslaving you non believers of Islam.
When the gun confiscation communists come out of the woodwork again, and they will, this is the type of information that should be used to counter their nonsense.
The key impediment to a world government by a tiny clique of consanguous elites is Western Civilization.
They believe then they won’t have to go through the bothersome ordeal of explaining their ideas and having their policies measured.
they want to do away with elections and command a populace too stupid to recognize lies but just smart enough to fumble their way to their work-stations in factories as pliant drones.
Welcome to Los Angeles!
And this is why we have 2A, concealed carry, and stand your ground laws in rational US states. It tends to place a limit on street thuggish antisocial behavior.
LOL, back in 82 I was warned to stay out of the Turkish section of the town at night. When I went back in 2014, I walked around the town looking for my old hang outs and found something that became rare there, a real German. Those nice clean streets and buildings seemed to have disappeared, stores were no longer the quaint German town types. It became a miniature NYC. (With the trash and graffiti too)
“The key impediment to a world government by a tiny clique of consanguous elites is Western Civilization.”
Do you mean “consanguineous” here?
Now they know how people in Detroit and Chicago feel.
Sorry but this is a lie...the Media told me so.....
The Grammar Queen salutes you!
Turks and Kurds clashing and massacring each other - happens all the time. (Just for you Kurds fans out there...)
