Turkish, Kurdish, and Moroccan Muslims get into a brawl in the streets and police quickly step in to shut it down. They don’t hesitate to use batons, knee-chokes, choke-holds, dogs, and even guns, when necessary.
Police in the the Netherlands are increasingly drawing, and using, their firearms. This practice is being actively encouraged by police chiefs and the development has not been substantially criticized in the media.
A spokesperson for the council of Police Chiefs, is quoted as saying: “in the past we were reluctant with violence. Nowadays we say: be quicker in drawing your gun and show it as a menace, fire a shot at the legs if necessary…If that does not produce the necessary effect, you [may] shoot him.”
