Leftists go beserk in Copenhagen....
And, the police just stood by....
Police stood by and watched as hundreds of vandals destroyed property after a city centre 'party'
Up to 400 people vandalised buildings and destroyed property as part of a left-wing activist celebration on Friday night, and Justice Minister Brian Mikkelsen has now called for an explanation as to why the police stood by and allowed it to occur.
Hyskenstræde Street - a sidestreet of pedestrian street Strøget - was the hardest hit as the ‘Undoing the city’ street party descended into chaos, with graffiti covering every surface, cars smashed and bonfires lit in the street using furniture stolen from nearby stores whose windows had been smashed.
Police initially decided to keep a low profile, contacting the party organisers with requests to disband the party and turn down the music. It was only when the revellers went amok around 2:30 am that police finally took action.
But no arrests were made, and police spokesman Flemming Steen Munch told Jyllands-Posten that ‘something had gone wrong’ for the police that evening. Now the justice minister is demanding an explanation.
It later emerged that the city council culture department had supported the ‘Undoing the City’ three-day celebration with 20,000 kroner in February, but the arrangers have denied that public funds were used to support the destructive street party.
