Ban on public speech for employees at the Police

It is with great sadness that dedicated policemen and women can not serve just because they air their frustation over weekends where they have to miss being with their families because youth gangs want to show that they rule the streets.

It was what happen to a policewoman who aired her opinion about youth who burn cars and property causing massive torment, fear and loss of money at the victims.

Why are she not allowed to tell what she mean about such criminals?

Should we honor such youth because they show that they are innovative?

What about the families who get hurt in this process. They go to sleep assured that they have a car in the morning so they can get to work and a dumpster where they can leave their garbage. The next morning they wake up to learn that they have lost both and in some case to learn that they could have been killed if the wind had let the fire spread to their houses or the fire brigade had been too late.

Should we not be able to sleep safely in our bed. Should the employees at the police not tell us how tired they are because there are too few of them?

Of course they should!

I know for a fact that they are proud of their job. They are motivated and handle soccerfans from abroad with both respect and fairness, so things don't get out of hand.

The politicians located far away from the ordinary people want her fired. It doesn't look good in their small world. However 120 of her collegues wants her to keep her job and I have to state that I feel whereever I go that the population wants her to continue as a policeofficer also.

Sometime I sincerely doubt that the politicians want to do good for us citizens.

A very special post

Normally this blog is about Danes who have been exposed of xenophobia abroad.

But this post is an advice to foreigners to avoid being victim for xenophobia in Denmark.

Most know that the Copenhagen Climate Council is just around the corner. In relationship with this party for the world leaders where they pretend to work for a better world while they enjoy the services of our sex-workers, our good food and our normally fine hospitality, our government has declared state of emergency.

The police can detain you for 12 hours without involvement of the courts and without charging you for a crime if they think you will be participating in a riot in the future - tomorrow or next year.

Prison sentences are tough during the summit.

But foreigners must observe a new rule, which allow the authorities to deport foreigners for participating in a demonstration which turn into riots. Because a lot of the politicians participating in this summit are dictators back home, some protesters will be there for other reasons than the climate. The risk of riots are great, so the safest strategy for foreigners is to remain at home and not enter Denmark.

Please listen to this advice: Ignore the Climate Council.

The politicians have decided that the climate issue is a task for world leaders and high profile politicians only. It is not an issue for you as an ordinary citizen.

I hope you take this advice into your heart. It is for your own good!
