A killer gives to charity
I read the following story in a Dutch newspaper:
Two young guys rob a bakery early in the morning. They duct tape the baker and stuff him in a closet where he later dies of suffocation. They leave with a safe containing 750 euros. The guys are arrested. They are convicted . How many years, I don’t know, it wasn’t mentioned in the lead, which I think is bad.
However sad the story, these things happen all over the world all the time.
But there were two things mentioned in the article that made me wonder if this was typically Dutch.
One: From the 750 euro’s booty, one of the suspects gave ‘somewhere around 20 euros’ to charity.
Two: During a police reconstruction of the robbery, one of the suspects refuses to take part. He thinks a doll, representing the baker, looks scary. Suspect: “That was scary, I didn’t feel like taking part.” The article doesn’t mention whether he was forced to take part anyway.
