Headline Hides ‘Asylum’ Crime Wave In Dutch City!
Just trying to figure out what the Dutch News editors are playing at, with their headline –
Asylum seekers arrested for pickpocketing acquitted
In fact, in terms of accuracy…
… it could as easily have been –
Asylum seekers arrested for pickpocketing convicted
Because it turns out that three were acquitted, but three others were convicted.
Three of the Moroccan asylum seekers arrested for pickpocketing in the centre of Groningen have been acquitted by a court in Assen. Three others were sentenced to four to eight weeks for stealing phones and a wallet.
A bizarre headline, then, obfuscating reality – unless, of course, those who devised it felt that crimmigrants being NOT guilty of street crimes were so unusual as to be specially newsworthy!
However, reality comes shining through when we make our way down the page.
- Earlier this week the public prosecution office said Groningen city centre was ‘deluged’ by groups of pickpocketing asylum seekers, mainly from so-called ‘safe countries’ such as Morocco and Algeria. http://www.dutchnews.nl/news/archives/
Turns out the reason for some prosecutions not succeeding was that the public prosecution office had opted for a fast-track procedure..
…for fear the men might go on the run.
If they feared the aliens detained might go on the run, why the heck did they not keep them locked up non-stop between arrest and trial?
Given what’s reported above, let’s not overlook Geert Wilders, Freedom Party leader there, currently on trial…
…for suggesting The Netherlands might be better off if there were fewer Moroccans in the country!
Would the victims of the thieving aliens agree or not?
