Man heavily fined for groping policewoman



A 29-year-old man from Bunschoten near Utrecht was fined 1000 euro for pinching a policewoman’s read end back in April. He was drunk, the cop told him to stop and he didn’t. The drunken man had to pay compensation for damages, as the woman was made the laughing stock of her department and was eventually transferred.

I admit to not taking two female cops seriously once because they didn’t exude any authority or understanding. I was double parked in Amsterdam unloading DJ gear where major construction (the Amsterdam metro) was literally blocking the entrance way to a building I had to get into. There was no other entrance way but a side door where I had to double park for about 10 minutes.

They told me I couldn’t, I said I knew, but I asked them what their solution was. They repeated you can’t, I asked again what their solution was, pointing to my gear and all. They stared at each other, I stared back with a smile and then they pissed off on their mountain bikes. Yes, it could have been two men, then I would have smiled more and been less smug.

In other news, if you’ve been living in a cave with terrorists, the Dutch football team is in the final for the World Cup.

    Do you prefer the Netherlands play Germany or Spain in the finals?

    The German defense and counterattack is powerful and a source of concern. I don’t know how Spain plays. I think maybe Germany would be the more difficult team to beat but I don’t know soccer well.

    How about the first goal in the semi game by the captain? My god, what a strike.

    The Germans are very strong, I think they will will against the Spanish. However, if the Spanish win, then the Netherlands could breathe a bit easier.

    Good then! Go Netherlands. Strike early and strike often.

    Not sure what the point of your anecdote about the female police officers was – are you saying that you respect male authority figures but not females and others feel the same way which is why they feel free to pinch the butts of police women?

  5. Orangemaster says:

    @Sarah I feel that this policewoman could have done with exuding more authority, as could the entire Dutch police force. The policewoman who fined the guy who pinched her should have been harsher instead of being nice and polite.

    And remember: this woman had to switch jobs because her own colleagues saw her as a weakling.

    Would you like to switch jobs every time you had a beef? I wouldn’t.
