Police officers from the Western Copenhagen Force have been using Facebook to
express their glee at having gone into action against Polish football fans
last week. 113 people were detained.
The national broadcaster DR has received a screen dump of a Facebook page in
which the first debating officer says:
“He he – finally some soccer idiots who were serious and didn’t tuck their
tails in between their legs when they saw the police – some of them probably
regret that today?.”
Another officer retorts: “Who said pepper…… Denmark – Poland 1-0” – seemingly
referring to the fact that officers used pepper spray during the unrest.
Several other officers retort that police had ‘danced with the Poles’ – an
expression used by hooligans to mean fighting.
Senior officers are unhappy with the disclosures that show officers
rejoicing at violent episodes with the public.
“This is unacceptable. They will be called in and told so,” Assistant
Commissioner Ib Meng tells DR.
