I believe one could increase the sentences for serious crime in Denmark and deport foreigners...

I am both Danish and Afghan, but not foreign. We were among the
first foreigners to arrive in Nørre Nebel. People were nice, greeted
us when we met in the street, and some invited us into their homes. If
you know each other’s way of living, you can live side by side, even
if you are different.
When there is something I want to achieve, I commit fully in order to
succeed. I train, practice, read, and dream about it at night. That is
the way it was with football tricks when I was younger, and also when
I applied to the Police Academy about a year ago. I am stubborn and
have a strong sense of justice.
I believe one could increase the
sentences for serious crime in Denmark
and deport foreigners who have
committed rape or murder. If you cost
the Danish taxpayers more than they
benefit from you, you might as well go
home.
My friends consider me rather tough on that point, but as long as the
proportions are alright, the system should be categorical in order to
create a sense of safety in the rest of the society. When I was admitted
to the Police Academy it was a boyhood dream come true, and my
first step to becoming one of those who go after the “bad guys”.
Should I one day become head of criminal investigations, I see myself
as a sort of John McClane from Die Hard, who neither sleeps nor sees
the family when he is on an important case.
