Belgium: Cars burning

A gang of youth set a car on fire in Tubize this past Saturday night, around 8pm. Tubize is a municipality in the province of Walloon Brabant. The fire brigade found fire inducers on the site and evidence pointing to criminal intent.

Meanwhile, on Friday 6 cars were set on fire in Neder-Over-Heembeek, a suburb of Brussels. The cars, in two different streets, were set on fire at around 4 am. The fire brigade was called to the scene but could not prevent the cars from burning up. The police and fire brigade originally suspected the arson was related to the anniversary of the riots in France, but discovered later that the cars had been burglarized, thereby coming to the conclusion that the thieves wanted to mask their trail.

I have always had a special place in my heart for Europe. To read what is happening makes me want to weep. As msny of us Americans of a Euro background, we feel a kindred spirit. I hope Europe and North America can continue to have a special relationship and rid ourselves of monsters.
