    Dutch version of Ferguson continues:

    I couldn’t find an up to date source in English, sorry, but the pictures are self evident.
    What frustrates me is that even the Dutch progressives, very much unlike their American counterparts, simply deny that there is racism in Dutch police. That’s what the major of The Hague did – a social democrat, ie supposed to be more left than your favourite Bernie Sanders.

    I’m not at all sure what your posting achieves. You post about possibly racist actions by the police in The Netherlands in an article discussing same-sex marriage in the US. WTF?

    You also post a link to a foreign language site which 99% of people here won’t be able to understand. Not helpful. Just by chance, I can read it. I live in Zuid Holland. What happened to Mitch Henriquez needs to be investigated. But to compare what happened in de Schilderswijk with what happened in Ferguson is strained, to say the least.
