B. T. mean: When crime moves online, growing requirements of you and me


A narkopusher storm down Gammel Kongevej in Copenhagen with the police in hot pursuit. A drug trafficking has gone wrong, and now the spirits of the police the bad guy in the neck. The dealers however, when to jump out in St. George's Lake, and emptying the plastic bag with drugs out in the water, before the ushers get the collar on him.

the Scene is fiction and reproduced freely according to the memory from the Danish director Nicolas Winding refn's debut film, ‘Pusher’ in 1996. Here is the main character, Frank, brilliantly played by Kim Bodnia, who runs the games with the police.

today the reality of the dealers even easier to cheat the police.

As a B. T. today can tell, is the deal with intoxicating substances for a part, moved on to encrypted communication applications on the phone, and the payment for the activity is done with kryptovaluta, which can not be traced.

So ensure the feel, the dealers behind desken in their virtual narkobutikker, one of them on top of the purchase have chosen to advertise quite openly for his shop in a major campaign with the bright red and eye-catching stickers all the way from Nørrebro Station, Nørreport in the Inner City. A strejkning of three kilometers in the middle of the capital.

Narkokriminaliteten moves along with other shady affairs as f.ex. gadeprostitution online, where purchase orders, agreements and the transactions disappear from the cityscape.

Although it immediately seems safer for the ordinary citizen to not be accosted directly on the street or unwittingly become witness to a drug trafficking, we must be careful to think that the problems disappear, because we no longer see them.

It provides an obvious risk of a ‘out of sight, out of mind’situation.

another obvious problem is the police to detect and investigate crimes, and they already have more than enough to see to get to the bottom of the bunkers with quite simple and common cases such as violent assault and burglary, where the danes will have to wait unreasonably long with of have completed their cases, which B. T. has documented through a longer period of time.

Pushernes pride and advertising campaigns is a mellemfinger to the rest of society.

the Abuse of drugs is quite widespread in all walks of life, and the criminals ' new methods can, unfortunately, mean that even more trying with the drugs, because the risk of getting caught is smaller.

It can be friends or family close to us who have come out on a slippery slope, or is on the way to it.

When we are so in less degree than in the past can count with the police in regards to going after those who sell the substances, is the responsibility of all of us an even greater responsibility in relation to spotting them buying. Maybe they need our help.
