Rotterdam Police Chief Leaves after Failure in Dealing with Riots


Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has announced that the Chief of Rotterdam Police Aad Meijboom has resigned. Meijboom had been heavily criticized after the police failed to deal properly with riots at a beach festival in August. The police knew that hooligans planned actions, but they did not take proper precautions. The hoodlums pushed the police back over the dunes. In order to protect themselves, the police were shooting continuously – mainly in the air. However, one person was killed by police as a result of the shooting.

幽默並不是諷刺,它或許帶有溫和的嘲諷,卻不傷人,它可能是以別人,也可以用自己為對象。 ..................................................
