Netherlands becoming a narco-state, warn Dutch police

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...n-dutch-police

http://www.20min.ch/ausland/news/sto...taat--11093279

It's all fun and games, until somebody loses an eye.
Or a life:
Amsterdam’s police chief, Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg, claimed his force was spending 60% to 70% of its time attempting to combat gang-related hit-jobs.

Young men were willing to carry out assassinations for as little as €3,000, he said in an interview this month. “In the 80s and 90s, professional hitmen from abroad came here for €50,000,” said Aalbersberg. “In recent years we see young boys from Amsterdam.”

Sounds lovely.

Re: Netherlands becoming a narco-state, warn Dutch police

Situation is a bit exceptional, a batch of 200KG Coke got lost some years ago which led to dozens of assassinations, it started out with 2 gangs fighting each other over this but resulted in a more widespread war in mostly the Amsterdam drugsworld. In the meanwhile this eats up capacity of the police force and other criminal acts stay as good as unpunished, and the politicians keep wasting billions while stating that they have no money for the force to be at a strength where it can be of use again.
