Community service sentence

The residents of the Wateringse Veld neighborhood of the Hague have complained for a long time that a group of immigrant kids were extorting the neighborhood kids. In July a man attacked his son's assailant. The skirmish quickly escalated and the police were called in.

The man then ran back home and fetched a knife, supposedly to scare off his son's assailant, and was arrested when he refused to follow the police orders and put it down.

The man recently got 60 hours of community service or 7 days in jail for threatening a police officer.
