The case Laurent Louis/Dutroux as reported by the media in Belgium VERY poorly reflects public's opinion
About this Dutroux case in Belgium and the action of this lonely MP (Louis), I note with intererest that the Belgian population is getting more mature & awake.
Whereas ALL political parties and ALL media collectively very severily critized -- it is in fact a true act of politcal lynching -- this somehow clumsy yet courageous young (32) MP, people in Belgium are starting to think differently.
Here is the translation of the two top comments from the public from one of the leading reference (conservative !) Belgian newspapers.
Most voted comment #1 : (116 votes)
"In a sound democracy, intimidating and censoring an MP does not demonstrate that his comments are irrelevant.
I have no sympathy for Laurent Louis , but the method used to deal with him is perhaps even more dangerous than the twisted mind of this individual."
Most voted comment #2 (93 votes)
"Who knows if this person is not just someone who is trying once again to tell that the Dutroux case has been sealed off in a totally unsatisfactory and vague way?
Someone who therefore should be denied!
Then it should be no surprise if he took drastic measures, with all the excesses we saw.
When I saw the pictures of all MP’s leaving the parliament, as one man, I began to doubt at this mass reaction."
Thats' rather encouraging!
