HORROR: The Police Enforcing the 'Partial' Lockdown in Belgium

A reader from Belgium emails:

The video's from the French speaking part of Belgium, but the images should speak for themselves.

The video was recored Friday evening in the Belgian town of Lasne near Waterloo. A family consisting of a husband, wife and 2 teenage daughters had a few guests over. Specifically the boyfriend and 4 or 5 other friends of the oldest teenage daughter. The police illegally entered the family's home -which unfortunately has become a common occurrence in Belgium these last few weeks- and started writing people up. In cases like this, the homeowner gets a 750 euro fine and every other individual present gets a 250 euro fine.

The mother started filming the police officers present, specifically their names/badges. One female police officer didn't like this and... well, the video tells the story.

After the mother was taken down by the police, the eldest daughter's boyfriend continued filming. At least 2 officers pulled their weapons on the father.

The father, mother and oldest daughter had to spend the night in jail. When they were released the following afternoon, a doctor diagnosed the mother with "severe injuries including brain damage".

  3. And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

  6. That was like a horror short film. Usually in horror movies, the psychopathic killer(s) will attack teenagers, though. They broke new ground!
