It happened in Amsterdam. Plenty of eyewitnesses and they even made videos. Those videos were on YouTube and the government (YouTube doesn't do it but the ministry does) removed them quickly. He isn't the first one with a voice, heard by the people who's been shot. For several years I followed this ex-police officer who started for himself. He felt unsatisfied with how the police work. I should say: did not work. They rarely care about finding, catching criminals and like many, he felt annoyed and the injustice. If it comes to injustice... There's none for who cannot afford it, not for enemies of the state (which are you and me but not the ISIS) or those who are wealthy enough to pay the judge or a lawyer who gets them out within a few hours because half a million is a joke to them (no matter if you are a criminal or not).
Like I said Peter is not the first being shot. It happened to Pim and Theo and many more. People with an opinion of their own. People who dare to speak out and fought for what is right, their rights and those of others. You can like them or dislike them but they did for what we want but are not willing to invest our time and energy in. We rather prefer to sit in our chairs in front of the television and complain. We complain about the world, the criminals, politicians, those who brought all the misery over us (the reason why we went bankrupt and have a pandemic) and if we do not like those fighters their looks, face or voice we complain about that. It's easier to complain instead of making our own hands dirty, easier to focus on what we don't like about someone instead of appreciating the benefits and having a closer look at our deeds... our own lack of deeds. If someone else is successful we envy him instead of calling him a hero. We ignore the risks he has to take, the risks he took because that's not what we see, want to see. We see snapshots of how it was done and the result and... we hear and read that person isn't as clean, honest as we thought since that was published in the papers, on social media and if that's the case it must be true.
Peter, Peter R. De Vries called himself a journalist. A criminal investigator who searched for criminals, evidence, was willing to be a witness, he spoke and wrote about it. He had a television show, wrote books and indeed he was/became close to Cor (one of the kidnappers of Heineken and his chauffeur). He always seemed to find a way to find those the police couldn't find which can be questionable but isn't different from what the police does (undercover, spying, cams, ears, and so on). They say he was threatened, warned and refused police protection. If that's true or even can be trusted is questionable. One politician is protected for many years in the Netherlands and his bodyguard(s) turned out to be part of IS. It makes one think especially because this protection is given by the government who wants to get rid of this man just like they deleted Pim, Theo, Lady Di and J.F. Kenned. Feel free to say: this isn't true, fake, conspiracy but I don't think so. I agree with those highly educated doctors in different fields (politics, history..) that if this all wasn't the case governments wouldn't invest so much time and money in hunting, removing, killing those with a voice, those who discovered their secret agenda.
Peter has a family. If I remember well he's 64 years old. So a man of 64 years old been shot because he is a threat to someone, more likely more than one person. This can be indeed the one who is on trial now but it's not said. More criminals or ordinary people who envy him want him dead. One thing is for sure. Peter is one of the last real journalists. A person who is filling to find those hidden agenda's, dives into it, goes to the bottom which is unique and the reason he had his own program and publications (you cannot trust the media right.) Those other real journalists, those who do not copy-google translate-paste what Reuters wrote are rare and getting rare. They all have their own sites like 'Café Weltschmerz', 'ON' (Not heard Netherland) and 'BLCKBX'. It feels as we are back at the time radio stations were forbidden and these pirates broadcasted from ships on the North Sea.
"The shooter is caught" the headline of the AD Newspaper shouted but those who read the tiny article were treated to a different story. Three men (indeed men again and foreigners) were caught. An 18-year-old was already set free after a few hours. Most likely the others will be back on the streets soon and while Peter fights for his life they try it again.
Of course, the "prime minister" Rutte (still no new government since the elections in March... democracy? Really?) says it's shocking and an attack on the freedom of writing and our democracy but I know just like others these are just empty words. Words said by someone who fights everyone with an opinion of his own. Rutte is a person who deletes statements, texts, videos on social media and threatens specialists, forbids doctors to do their job and his nickname is Pinocchio.
