If you are frustrated by the PC culture in America, you are going to be livid when you hear the reason why Belgian authorities failed to arrest one of the masterminds behind the Paris terror attacks.
From The Daily Caller:
Sarah Abdeslam, one of the masterminds behind the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris, could have been captured two days after the attacks if it wasn’t for a law that prevents overnight raids.
Belgian authorities had strong indications that Europe’s most wanted man was in an apartment in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek two days after attack. Koen Geens, Belgium’s justice minister, told reporters Wednesday that police were unable to capture Abdeslam because of a law that prevents raids from taking place between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., unless a crime is in progress.
Abdeslam was nowhere to be seen when police searched the apartment at 5 a.m., and he is now believed to have made his way to Syria.
The French police weren’t much better, they let this same suspect go through a checkpoint after the shootings for reasons we are still trying to figure out.
If that doesn’t make your blood boil you should probably check your pulse.
Sadly, this kind of thinking has become a pervasive mentality not only in Europe but in America too.
I can’t imagine that an American law enforcement agency would ever refrain from carrying out a raid like this because it is too late at night but the Obama Administration has constantly made decisions that fall in line with this one.
Perhaps you remember President Obama dropping leaflets to warn ISIS members to flee a bombing area 45 minutes before an air strike because he didn’t want to hurt civilians or damage the environment.
Same kind of thought process.
Europeans should be outraged that the government didn’t do absolutely everything in their power to protect the people.
Regardless of how many Belgians had to stay up past their bedtime.
