Århus: Bus personnel attacked by immigrants

Bus drivers in Århus are demanding more personnel on routes in the Western neighborhood of Gellerup after two brutal attacks.  Otherwise they are considering boycotting problematic routes through the immigrant neighborhood.

The Danish People's Party is demanding that justice minister Lene Espersen ensure more police resources in Århus to deal with the immigrant bands attacking bus personnel.

On  Sunday November 25th a bus driver was attacked by a group of immigrants, hit and stabbed at the last stop in Hasselager after he kicked out trouble makers from his bus on the way from Århus.  The following Sunday a ticket controller was attacked in his home in Skanderborg by a group of immigrants.  He was hit and threatened because he had fined them for not having tickets.

Kirsten Normann, chairman of the FOA trade union in Århus says that the message was that he shouldn't fine immigrants, and that he will be followed again if that happens.  These two episodes shouldn't be viewed as separate cases, since there are threats for the future. 

Trade unions FOA and 3F came out in a joint statement saying that they will not tolerate their members being attacked for doing their job.  The buses won't continue under threats of violence and nobody will work under risk of being attacked.

Let the Muslim scum walk. They are a danger to civilization.

Some Muslims are a danger to civilization. Some are not. The same applies to Christians, Hindus, Jews, and other religionists.

A better alternative than banning members of a particular religion is to privatize the bus system. (I am assuming it is state run or regulated.) Each bus company can decide for itself which routes to follow, what to charge, and with whom to do business.

A second step would be to ruthlessly punish, with long prison sentences, anyone who attacks a bus driver (or anyone else, for that matter).

If radical Muslims believe so much in their 7th Century religion, then they should henceforth be given every opportunity to use 7th Century modes of travel: let them walk or ride a donkey.

"ruthlessly punish, with long prison sentences"

Vikings are spinning in their graves.

Oh please. If the police can't deal with the attackers, what makes you think rent-a-cops will be able to? Any private industry that actually wanted to stop the attacks would have to hire mercs at least, and any private company that did so would be shut down by a terrified public the moment the first attack got stopped cold.

"A second step would be to ruthlessly punish, with long prison sentences, anyone who attacks a bus driver (or anyone else, for that matter)."

Never going to happen. These attackers only get angrier when their buddies get locked up, and you'll run out of locks long before you run out of attackers.

Get aggressive with these a--holes! If you follow Tatter's advice and do nothing, nothing will happen. Undercover cops riding buses, investigative journalists going on the buses, and much more. Go into the perpetrators homes and get them. Stop hoping the problem is going to go away and do something about it.

I don't suppose anyone would consider arming the bus drivers and bus personnel, so they could defend themselves. Guns against knives have an excellent track record.

First, I suggest stopping the idiotic practice of trying to make the usual PC moral equivalent ie radical Muslim = Christian, Jew, Hindu, Buddhist. Sorry poster but its obvious to almost everyone except the far Left useful idiot that most of the problems are coming from one group and they make no bones about it. Second, is deportation. No muss, no fuss, get rid of this scum before it gets rid of you.
