Amsterdam Ombudsman: Amsterdam center is an urban jungle at night


Amsterdam Ombudsman Arre Zuurmond told the daily Trouw that the city center of Amsterdam becomes a jungle at night. He continued that 900 offenses were counted in the central area, mainly between the hours of 2 am. – 4 am. Scooters race through the pedestrian areas. “There is lots of shouting. Drugs are being brought.  There is stealing.  People pee and even poop on the streets.” He added that the police are powerless.
