Respect to Dutch policing.

The officer reaches for the handcuffs and let's the situation calm down.

In many countries the guy with the sledge hammer would have gotten blown away.

We just have a situation today in Denmark with two policemen sitting on top of a guy in handcuffs who some spectators say is shouting that he cannot breathe. The police respond by emptying a pepper spray into his eyes to make him shut up.

I feel good to know that I live in the country on Earth with the best police. But it does bother me that everyone who come into contact with them say otherwise....

I've been told that Denmark has the most brutal police force in Western Europe. Even the Germans are warning its citizens to stay in line in Denmark...

Insane man in dept killed 6 people.

We had similar individual in our house. Fortunately he has alternative house where to live and he sell his apartment this week.
And what about that psychotic Ghanese guy living in Milan, who around a year ago killed three random people in the street with a pick?
In that case they were lucky that the guy destroyed only his own car, but a mentally ill man like him could have used the axe against other people. Or he could have driven his car over someone else. When someone is mentally ill, one can expect everything from him, especially if he has already shown some aggressive behavior.

Interesting. When the young Danes went drinking to Prague during the spring school holiday, the second time it was agreed that couple Danish police officers went with them to calm it down .

Danish police in Prague.

During the Oktoberfest there is a group of Italian police too. They're usually from South Tyrol, since they know both languages and may act as interpreters between Italian visitors and the German police, in case of troubles.

We wanted to get rid of him, but we couldn't because he was not a 'demonstrable risk'. That changed when he burned down a moped and filled his apartment with gas. He was then detained by police and then admitted to involuntary commitment, as they call it. Basically a mental institution run like a prison.
This is actually becoming a widespread problem in the Netherlands as there are not so many mental institutions and in fact the government is limiting the funds for them.

The approach is to place such people in normal houses amongst the rest of the population and arranging some professional help visiting them.

Indeed the police needs first to make a serious case to step in. Many people just give up and move away rather then expecting the authorities to do anything. I heard several such stories already.

Luckily, we don't seem to be bothered by anyone.

The most paradox is the name of the hill where the plane crashed: it is called Sakrakopec and means literally Damn-hill. I went there intentionally, because I wanted to know, how the damn hill would look. And found this.
It is a tragedy, but it is kind of curious in a karmic way considering what the (well some) bastard Bulgarians did about 10 years earlier:

I stay away from them. As do all other people that know people who have been in contact with them (apart from jay walking and speeding I don't break any laws).

Unfortunately this sick culture has been able to develop because the police are serving the Ministry of Justice. Which also employs the prosecutors and the judges.

One big happy family.

Good luck filing a complaint....

Who's fault is it that the Israeli pilots got fresh and didn't obey the military jets? It was a terrible thing to do but it's hard to imagine that Israel wouldn't do the same if a foreign plane ignored its commands.

I think I saw asphalt bumpers in Serbia while I drove there.
They were better signed and had a more normal shape, but still annoying as hell.

Road bumpers have always been annoying.

We have several concrete ones in Slovakia. But more popular are the collapsible ones. I asked for one in 2010 to the road in front of our house, wrongly used as a shortcut. It actually worked but not as I'd desired. So now is one-way street under consideration.

Once I drove somewhere for the first time, so I didn't know the road. There was a car in front of me and as we were approaching the end-of-village sign (speed limit raised from 50 to 90 km/h), it started slowing down. I thought 'wtf' and decided to overtake it. When I raised my speed and started overtaking, I saw a speed bump in the last moment. I made a nice jump. But seriously, what a stupid place for a speed bump.
