Amsterdam Police Blame Judges for Lenient Punishments

Commissioner Hans Schönfeld, a senior member of the Amsterdam police, has asked judges to mete out more severe punishments to rioters in Amsterdam Slotervaart. He said that at present sentences are far too lenient. According to Schönfeld a frequently convicted burglar may be condemned to only 12 days in jail. This makes it very difficult for the police to deal with such criminals.
