A policeman losing his job because of Peter R. de Vries

by Marthijn Uittenbogaard


Peter R. de Vries is a Dutch crime fighter who for many years had a television show about criminal activity. I write show and that is what is was: show. Entertainment. De Vries is strong opposing the political party called PVV. I appreciate that, because the PVV is a very intolerant far right political party that wants to abolish many civil rights, especially for Muslim people. But in a way Peter R. de Vries is fueling fascism himself for many years. He does not see this.

Recently, he was responsible for a policeman to lose his job. This policeman had met a woman on a dating site. He chatted with this woman and wanted to have a sex date with her. He chatted with her during work time. Some people look at holiday websites to plan their vacation, during work time. But it's not worth mentioning this on national television. The woman later on said she was 17, which she wasn't. She wanted to find out how the policeman would respond. Well, he still wanted a sex date with her. At one time he masturbated during a Skype session on the toilet inside the police station. The woman brought the video of the man masturbating to Peter R. de Vries. What about his privacy? Peter R. called the man, who first denied everything but the evidence was there. The policeman immediately was fired by his boss. He is now without work.

On the Dutch television talk show - yes indeed show - called RTL Late Night Peter was explaining this case to the public. He said that what the policeman did was a crime: sex with a 17 year old is a crime, he said. And he thought she was 17. But sex with a seventeen year old is not a crime. It's 16 in the law. It's 16 for more than 100 years. (It was under some conditions temporarily 12 though.)

I think the woman sucks and Peter R. de Vries does too. Destroying people's lives just for what? For entertainment? For the feeling that I'm okay but he's a pervert? Fascism always goes hand in hand with a witch hunt on sexual minorities, and with a wish to be pure and fight perversions. And all sexuality outside a longstanding monogamous relationship still is seen as wrong.

I wanna interview Peter R. de Vries on this subject. I hope he will say yes and I hope in the end he will see the wrong in this case. Not by the policeman but the wrongdoing of himself. The chances that he will respond are not high I'm afraid.
