This article was found by Uriasposten and translated by KitmanTV, and proofed by myself. Those who know me, can attest to the fact, that any errors in the translation from Danish to English, are almost certainly mine. Thank you again to KitmanTV for doing the translation and sending this my way. It is quite a revelation coming from a Danish police officer.
First, a little background from Gates of Vienna:
According to my Danish contacts, we are entering a new phase in our march towards the multicultural paradise. Acting independently, Zonka and Kepiblanc have translated articles about a series of cultural enrichment incidents in the Vollsmose suburb of Odense.
The earliest article avoided any mention of ethnicity, so I asked Zonka if the perpetrators were definitely Enrichers. He said:
I would say there’s a 99+% chance that they were: it’s the M.O. of the Enrichers, it’s a suburb made up almost entirely of Enrichers (think Rosengård), and I have no doubt that Ritzau would have been screaming loudly if ethnic Danes or other Westeners were behind the attack.
So it’s bordering the impossible that it wasn’t Enrichers.
Kepiblanc supplies a little context:

As a special service to readers of Gates of Vienna who probably don’t know how to decode Danish media-speak:
Vollsmose is one of our largest no-go areas, situated just outside Odense (the birthplace of author Hans Christian Andersen). A BMW-driver means a young Muslim in a stolen car, driving insanely fast, ignoring traffic lights, all traffic regulations, and with the car’s boom-box at full volume. “Bystanders” means the ever-present mob of riff-raff, namely his countless brothers, first and second cousins, uncles and assorted scumbags. “Investigating” means asking a few polite questions (don’t want to upset anyone’s feelings, do we…?) knowing very well that no answers will be given, after which the case is archived with no further ado.
The first article, from yesterday’s Jyllands-Posten, was translated by Zonka:
Throwing bottles at the police in Vollsmose
A group of policemen from Fyn had to hastily put an injured driver into their patrol car, when bottles and other projectiles were thrown at them in the Odense suburb Vollsmose.
A police patrol attempted to stop a car that caught their suspicion, but the driver escaped. At first he managed to outrun the police, but the officers found him shortly thereafter, as he had an accident in a roundabout at Vollsmose Allé. The driver was unconscious for a bit, but before the ambulance arrived, people in the area started congregating and attacking the police with whatever was at hand.
Thus the driver was taken outside the area and transferred to the ambulance at a safe distance from the disturbance. No officers were harmed, according to the first reports.
The trouble didn’t stop there: the Enrichers escalated from bottles to bullets.
As Zonka says, “The story gets even better — now any lingering doubts about whether these guys were Enrichers has vaporized in my mind.
100 people tried to stop ambulance
Live rounds fired at police in Vollsmose
Live rounds were flying past local policemen in Vollsmose, while trying to assist colleges after a traffic incident.
The situation became nasty last night in the Vollsmose suburb Odense when a 19-year old BMW-driver tried to escape the police and then crashed his car. When the ambulance arrived at the scene, the mood was so nasty that some 100 bystanders tried to block the ambulance.
“Finally, the police had to get the driver out of the car and into a patrol car in order to drive him over to the ambulance,” says Chief Inspector Hans Frederiksen of the Funen Police to BT.
It escalated to vandalism, and around midnight four cars at the parking lot were set ablaze, including the wrecked car.
10 bullets fired at the police
When two policemen from the Vollsmose precinct arrived, ten shots were fired at them, possibly from an automatic rifle. The shots were fired from a green area some 50 meters away.
“One of our colleagues could actually see the muzzle fire and hear the rounds flying past. This means close proximity, and the shots were surely aimed at the policemen,” says the chief inspector.
This morning the police are present in force in order to investigate and find out who fired the rounds. Police dogs have found five cartridges.
Meanwhile the remains of cars set ablaze during the night are being removed. A total of six vehicles are completely incinerated and another one is totally wrecked.
And here’s another article, this one from today’s Jyllands-Posten, as translated by Zonka:
Gunshots against police officers in Vollsmose
Police had to withdraw from the Odense suburb Vollsmose late Thursday evening, after a driver who was chased by the police ended up in an accident.
It happened around 21:30.
Up to 100 people prevented an ambulance from reaching the place, and Fyens Police reports that several patrol cars were hit by bottles and stones.
The situation, according to Fyens Stiftstidende [local newspaper], was so bad that the officers had to transport the car driver in the patrol car and drive to a nearby road where he could be transferred into an ambulance.
Not in critical condition
“He was taken to the hospital and his condition is not critical. We know who he is, so we have something that we need to talk to him about. But he is not under arrest,” says the duty-chief Hans Frederiksen to Fyens.dk.
As the disturbances took form, cobblestones were torn up, and around midnight four cars were set ablaze at the parking lot at Bøgeparken as well as a hedge on Bodvej.
Shot at the police
At 23:00 two officers from the local police in Vollsmose arrived, and when one officer stepped out of the patrol car, 8-10 rounds were fired from a area of greenery at a distance of approximately 50 meters — likely from an automatic weapon.
“None of the shots hit the officers, but it was close. They could see the gunfire from the weapons and feel the bullets flying by,” says the duty-chief to Ritzau.
According to Fyens Police the situation ended at 02:00
Taught to Hate the Police
Zonka has translated another article about the situation in Vollsmose. He includes this explanatory note:
As a follow-up to the story about the shootings in Vollsmose, fyens.dk have interviewed one of the Enrichers, who is telling a tale that should send shivers down our collective spine.
I believe he is exaggerating somewhat and laying it on a bit thick to paint himself and the Vollsmose immigrants in a better light, but there is no mistaking the main message. There definitely is hate between the immigrants and the police (and the Danes in general), and they are arming themselves and preparing for the upcoming fight (which the other side [our side] is unfortunately neglecting)…
The translated article:
Children in Vollsmose taught to hate the police
In Vollsmose the mistrust of the police has grown to a level higher than hate. Even the children are being taught to hate the police. The car burnings on Thursday and the gunshots were only the warm-up, according to the 29-year-old Malkit.
Vollsmose: Malkit sits in the corner furthest back in the small bar in Odense. While he tells me about the incidents on Thursday in Vollsmose, he looks nervously around to make sure nobody is watching him talking to me,
Because he was there that night. Just as he has been there before. Just as he always is there.
It was around 11pm when he got the call on Thursday evening. “The shootings are on” was the message, and he had to hurry from his apartment in Egeparken.
This is how it is. Even though Malkit studies at the university and stays away from crime, the solidarity between him and the other residents of Vollsmose is unbreakable.
“We help each other. That’s actually what started the whole thing on Thursday,” says Malkit.
The cars were already burning when he ran towards Bøgeparken, and when he arrived everything was chaos.
“It was absolutely crazy. You have to understand that there is a fundamental hate towards the police; trust is at an absolute minimum,” says Malkit.
An hour previously people had congregated around an wrecked hit-and-run-driver. They knew the driver of the BMW and wanted to help him.
Malkit says that many of those present didn’t understand why the police, who had chased the driver, didn’t call an ambulance.
Arms Race in Vollsmose
“It is not true that it [the ambulance] couldn’t come in,” says Malkit, and shakes his head so that his long black hair falls down into his eyes.
“There weren’t that many present at the moment. But when the police used pepper-spray against those that were closest to the car, the trouble began, and the rest of us were notified,” says Malkit, and fixes his hair behind his ears.
This time the disturbances were over by 1am, but Malkit predicts that it will end with a “bang”.
“We have weapons in Vollsmose. Plenty of weapons. Machineguns, explosives, guns and all the weapons, you can’t even imagine. It is only a matter of time. When the police open fire, Vollsmose opens fire, and then chaos and ghetto conditions will reign,” he says.
Until then several of the neighborhood’s young men are training in the use of hand weapons.
“Every Friday they go to Agedrup and practice. Sometimes behind Vollsmose. They want to defend themselves against racism and Nazism,” he explains.
In particular, racism is the reason for the deep hatred against the police, Malkit believes.
“Everybody in Vollsmose hates the police. Young and old. Parents even teach their kids that the police are evil,” he says.
“It is because they misuse their authority and behave in a racist fashion towards us.”
Malkit looks over his shoulder and stubs out his cigarette in the ashtray.
“I have already said too much.”
Malkit wishes to remain anonymous, fearing the reaction from his support base, and thus Malkit is not his real name.
Kim Thyssen was one of the two police officers who were shot, down in Vollsmose Denmark this august. He has been working in the troubled neighborhood for ten years, and is not surprised about the fact that police-officers are now fired at. The area is dominated by a core of ruthless criminals who hate the police.
by Karina Bjørnholdt:
(Officer) Kim Thyssen knows what he is talking about. Throughout the last 15 years he has been working to prevent crime among youths with an ethnic background other than Danish. First as an officer in a special police unit, but since 2004 he has been based in Vollsmose, with Bøgeparken as his primary district. Kim Thyssen has no illusions and no prejudices — he knows the reality of the situation.
That is also the reason he was not particularly surprised, disappointed, or shocked when he was shot at the night before the 14th of August, as the rage boiled over in Bøgeparken.
Many of the difficult youths of Bøgeparken are like ticking bombs, and it was only a matter of time, and of who would light the first match — the policeman says
Hard to get to
Kim Thyssen on earlier occasions had experienced stones and bottles being thrown at him, but he had never been shot.
But the frustration has been heating up among the youths in the last two-three months.
“We also had the back window of our patrol-car smashed just recently for instance. They have generally been hostile towards the police, and were sort of waiting around for an opportunity.”
There is a group of hard-core criminals in Bøgeparken, and Kim Thyssen fears that things are moving in the wrong direction. He also states that people working for the municipality are having a hard time. Some of them have taken a leave from their job simply in order to be safe from the troublemakers.
Kim Thyssen states that Bøgeparken is mainly inhabited by Arabs, and a group of stateless Palestinians are in control of crime in the neighborhood. Many of the youths the local police are in contact with are also very unintelligent. School-psychologists in the area have even diagnosed some of them as being on “the level of mental retardation” as it is called in technical terms.
Experts in the Municipality of Odense, interviewed by DANSK POLITI [the independent professional paper of the Danish Police in which the article appeared] agree that lack of caring and stimulation and the effects of marriage between cousins are causing the low intelligence and consequently the reason why they easily end up committing crimes. They look up to their older friends and gain recognition by committing criminal acts.
“These youths have a poor vocabulary, are impulse-guided, and are not oriented towards the consequences of their actions. That is why they are so hard to get to, on a personal level. They simply don’t have the tools needed to engage in a discussion. Apart from that many of them are extremely ‘fond of fire.’ This summer we registered over 100 arsons behind Bøgeparken,” Kim Thyssen says.
The experienced police officer further reports that Bøgeparken houses many so called “wanna-bes” often no more than 8 to 10 years of age. These are the ones yelling “f***ing police” at the police authority. Then there are the older brothers who actually challenge the police by throwing rocks and bottles. Occasionally when things get out of hand even the fathers of the families — 30-35 years of age — encourage the young ones in their attacks on the police.
Kim Thyssen estimates that the group of stateless Palestinians in Bøgeparken consists of around 40 persons. But they are quickly able to call in more people, and suddenly you have a gathering of around 100 difficult youths and grown-ups.
“They carry an insatiable hate towards the authorities. And there is also a fair amount of ‘reverse racism’ out there, which is becoming more and more explicit in recent years. The Danes have a very rough time in Bøgeparken. Their children can’t play in the sandbox, it is the cars belonging to the Danes that are set on fire, and it is their apartments which are burglarized. The Danes are shot at with air rifles and mugged on the street.
Now, one might think that the shooting has made Kim Thyssen angry or disappointed. He knows the inhabitants of Bøgeparken and they know him, and still the shots were fired. But that is not how Kim Thyssen views the matter.
“There are three things needed to be a good police officer in Vollsmose. You need a clear head, a warm heart and a cold a** [“cold a**” is slang for ‘not giving a damn’]. The people often come up close to you, and you suddenly find yourself surrounded by some 30-40 people curious about what you are doing. That is the time where you need to remind yourself that, although we do have some people we know well, we have no friends out here. We are often called racists, but that is what they call anyone enforcing the law,” Kim Thyssen says.
“But I still like my job, and the shooting is not going to change that.”
