My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother, Proverbs 1:8

Yesterday, I ended my column stating that: A second facility in Dakota, holds about 40 individuals, but has a slightly improved set up.

I was wrong. Those detainees also climbed on the roof, waving a flag, chanting.  

So the question remains: Are they criminals or not?

Criminals get convicted and sent to jail.

The rest are refugees. Since we are part of the European continent, isn’t there some law that states we have to adopt them? Give them shelter, food and something constructive to do?

It should not be too hard to track them, on a 20 x 6 island, with the help of some technology.

Alas, it sounds like the MinJust is making things complicated, trying to bring the Netherlands to court because it is trying to help us, while at the same time a simple local humane matter, seems too hard manage.

Why not try, do the basics well, first?

Ask the Netherlands for some assistance to get KIA up to snuff, and staffed properly. Ask for some immigration support to handle refugee issue according to EUR standards, and while you are at it, also request the support necessary in area of police training, upgrading, and organizational improvement.  So that cops may cope better and not burn out.

As quoted in your favorite book: My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother.
