Dutch Police To Confiscate Luxurious Clothes From People Who Look Poor
Not sure how they get down in the Netherlands, but in America this would literally get some police shot.
According to The Independent, Dutch police have launched a program that allows them to literally strip the luxury clothing and jewels off of young people’s necks and backs if the officer deems said person too poor to own such fine goods.
Authorities believe that this effort will scare young men and women who have acquired high-price items through illegal means into either reporting to police or giving the goods back to their rightful owner. Yeah, right.
“They are often young men who consider themselves untouchable. We’re going to undress them on the street.
“We regularly take a Rolex from a suspect. Clothes rarely. And that is especially a status symbol for young people. Some young people now walk with jackets of €1800. They do not have any income, so the question is how they get there.”
They might just have gotten these luxurious items by minding their own cotdamn business, just like the cops should! How the hell is a bum a$$ beat cop gonna prove that a coat or watch is stolen? We know how. Find the darkest people with the nicest clothes and publicly harass and embarrass them by accusing them and taking their property.
Sounds like stop-and-frisk on steriods. Naw. HELL naw.
