According to Europol, the EU is destined to become more and more like Mexico, with rampant corruption, lawlessness, and violence.
Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the German-language service of the Epoch Times. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:
Europol predicts street violence like in Latin America
The highest European police authority Europol warns of an extreme increase in violence on European streets. Europol director Catherine De Bolle speaks to the Welt am Sonntag of a “level of violence on the European streets that we have never seen before. So far we only knew that from Latin America.”
De Bolle described the decryption of the EnchroChat chat application used by Criminals as a major blow to organized crime. This has given us a whole new understanding of how organized crime threatens European security, the rule of law and democracy. [I wonder who’s responsible for that?]
De Bolle said: “Our conclusion is: We underestimated the danger. “Drug trafficking continues to play a major role for criminals. Cartels have recognized that it is worthwhile to produce certain drugs in Europe. “For example, we discovered synthetic drugs from the Netherlands on the Brazilian market, which surprised us a lot,” said De Bolle.
Violence, Drugs and Corruption
Of the around 2,000 tons of cocaine produced annually in the Andes region, 60 percent is now destined for the European market. In the past, most of the production was intended for the US market.
In addition to the violence and drugs, the extent of corruption was also underestimated. More than half of the criminal organizations use corruption, for example to persuade dock workers to cooperate in drug smuggling. There are also very specific threats. “Criminals take photos of the target’s wives and children to pressure him into cooperation.” [….and our respective governments are using what methods to threaten us with? I cannot see the difference.]
80 percent of criminal organizations would set up legal businesses [Big Pharma] in addition to illegal businesses in order to launder their money. “Illegal business is infiltrating our economy and destabilizing the system,” De Bolle warned. [I guess they don’t like competition.]
Afterword from the translator:
It was only a matter of time before conditions like those in Latin America would prevail in Europe, with a number of cities in Sweden already being shaken by street violence. In Germany, stabbings and shootings are on the rise, well on their way to Swedish conditions.
Just a look at Mexico reveals what “rosy” times could lie ahead for people in Europe: There is now hardly an area in the second largest country in Latin America where the illegal Mafia does not rule. One could also say that organized crime is engulfing the whole country like an octopus, also made possible because the state is on the one hand incapable or unwilling and on the other hand often enough makes common cause with the cartels.
Of course, our great Politicians did not underestimate the danger, but knew exactly what they were doing. It’s all planned like that, so that Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and George Soros can ride in with their NWO cavalry and save the peons from the bad guys.
I follow the Dutch media, and I always publish articles from them on my blog. I can say with conviction: the Netherlands is one of the countries that is closest to this reality. Not only has the Moroccan mafia dominated crime, it has forged links with other criminal groups, which increasingly use the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam to transport drugs to Europe.
Europe’s problem with organized crime, including terrorist groups that traffic drugs, is only going to get worse as the supplier continent sinks into lawlessness, and anarchy. Drug trafficking is growing here in Latin America, and countries that are electing socialist despots are multiplying their drug exports. Ecuador is one of those countries: the president there is not left-wing, but his public security policies are making the problem worse.
As the continent here collapses in crime, Europe increases its import of drugs, and the problem worsens even more.
I don’t think we ever had as criminally stupid and corrupted politicians as we do today. That is the great problem with democracy: imbecils and morons can get political power and end up in positions they are not really qualified for.
I know not everyone will agree, but the sane and logical solution is to legalise- or at least to decriminalise- all “recreational” drugs. Otherwise we’re doomed to an ongoing situation similar to the prohibition of alcohol in the US.
Yes, some criminals will find other sources of income, but we can cross that bridge when we come to it.
I agree regarding the decriminalization of recreational drugs, but not for the same reasons.
A better question is why are such a large percentage of people so miserable that they choose the escape from reality that drugs offer? Some would say it is because of a lack of religious purpose, or terrible financial situations caused by rapacious globalism, or the tremendous damage done to healthy male/female relationships by social media, online hookup culture, and the complete destigmatization of female hypergamy. Personally, I believe it is due to a lack of purpose and frontiers to escape to for those who are ill-suited for living in the increasingly over-regulated West. Whatever it is, just criminalizing the escapes from reality that so many seek does absolutely nothing to address the underlying reasons for such widespread dissatisfaction with reality.
The Netherlands legalized drugs, and the country won the Mocro Maffia. American states have legalized drugs, such as Colorado, and the state has made a quantum leap in the number of homicides and drug-related crimes. You suggest unrealistic solutions which have already borne bad fruit.
Drugs, above all, are a form of control – they do not undermine social problems, nor do they increase the potential of society, of individuals. They subjugate people, and keep them liable, and dependent.
Legalizing drugs in European countries, which are receptive to illegal immigrants specializing in drug trafficking, ended up doing the Netherlands a lot of good. Take a walk in Amsterdam at night and see how “innovative” the solution they are proposing was.
I suppose one picks their poison.
Cities here in the US with the highest murder rates are all in states where drugs remain illegal.
I am against criminalizing drug use because criminalizing it provides justification for increased numbers of cops who are increasingly militarized. This goes hand in hand with an all-out assault on civil liberties which was a huge part of the “war on drugs”. Such large numbers of cops represent a serious threat to liberty as recent events have demonstrated; from beating protesters against lockdowns in Europe, Canada, and Australia, or helping to disrupt lawful protests against a deeply unpopular Canadian thug.
In my opinion, the problems in Amsterdam and other similar European cities is that they are infested with orcs that cannot be forcibly removed to the cesspools from which they spawned.
Thanks for your considered replies, “Moon” and others.
It seems to me that if cigarettes and alcohol (both addictive, especially the former, as I know too well) were banned now, this would add to the amount of criminality. Shouldn’t the reverse be true?
