Impunity is organised not only federally, but also Flemish.
Heavily criminal young people are simply put on the streets due to lack of place in closed youth institutions, it turns out. The Flemish Interest wants real youth prisons to finally be prioritised with considerably more capacity to cope with increased and heavier youth crime. The Flemish Interest joins the cry for help of the Prosecutor des Konings of Halle-Vilvoorde in the Latest News today which states that due to the shortage of place in the closed youth institutions – the harshest punishment against wintered youth criminals – closed shelter – is an 'empty box'. The fact that hard-growing young criminals simply end up on the streets after serious facts simply gets into the streets and gives juvenile offenders the most funeual signal that crime pays off. Currently there are about 320 places in the closed centres. Not enough, then. Flemish MP Adeline Blancquaert who closely follows the file of the place shortage in the youth institutions and has also raised a question about this in the Welfare Committee next Tuesday: "However, the current circumstances just the opposite: a high-performance and firm youth criminal law and sufficient capacity in juvenile prisons in which young criminals have to pay not only for their punishment, but also to be revalues, respect and discipline with hard hand contributed."" This weak youth prison policy also abandons the police"The figures show that the failing approach of the Flemish government is also causing hard crime today. Indeed, a parliamentary question from Barbara Pas shows that youth crime – mainly due to mass immigration – is on the rise. In 2015, police registered 15,020 minor suspects. Three years later, that had already increased to 17,163. The number of juvenile criminals with foreign nationality increased by 164% in the same period! The mayor of Antwerp also recently confirmed that the proportion of minors among the perpetrators of aggressive thefts in his city has grown exponentially and that the perpetrators are becoming increasingly three-star. Adeline Blancquaert is policy: This policy of impunity not only abandons the brave Fleming who is the victim of this crook, but also the police who have often made strenuous efforts to lump those juvenile criminals. Apparently, without democratic support, the policy can create thousands of additional shelters for asylum seekers in the short term, but not with large democratic support, several hundred additional highly needed places to tackle juvenile criminals Close. I will therefore ask guarantees in committee next week – with the crime rates in hand – that the capacity of closed reception will be extended by priority."
