> There is a strong sense of Charles Bronson in the discourse of Fred Teeven for years already. Teeven State Secretary of Justice for the VVD party in the Dutch government (under resignation since a few months), commented yesterday on the news that a burglar caught in the act, did not survive the confrontation with the people he tried to steal from:."Death is burglar's risk" said the State-Secretary who spoke before the court had had the time to give it's judgement of the case. Violent self-defence is something provocative in the Netherlands with it's rather strict rules for ownership of any firearm and so also the use of it. It is for a judge to decide whether or not the violence used has been proportional. Teeven is a right-wing politician, who has smartly travelled through several split-off right wing parties in the last decade, each time choosing fro his own career and using the populist ticket of 'no mercy for criminals', to stay in office.
