@junior-soprano - get in here and translate and type out all the Dutch-language pages you can find about the gang for us. Enquiring minds want to know about this shit. :lol: :thumbsup

I get SUPER frustrated as a lot of the material is in Dutch, and I read Dutch like a literal five year old. :lol: It's really annoying to know that if I was reading about it at age 10, I could basically serve as a translator for the pages. But now, I've forgotten almost all of it, to the extent that essentially I'm no better at reading a page in Dutch than you are. :fire

Does the dialect difference make it anymore harder? I haven't been to Belgium although I do have to visit Passchendale. I had the chance to go a few years, all paid for by the NZ gov when they were marking the centenary of the battle of Passchendale, as a rep of my great grandfather and the medal he got, but health issues stopped me.

Oh that sucks, that would have been great for you to go!

Yeah my relatives apparently spoke in pretty heavy dialect Dutch, they're from North Brabant (ironically) and my understanding is the general stereotype is that we're a bunch of Catholic fundamentalist farmers. Which was true enough, in my particular case. :lol:

Plus they would have spoken old style rural provincial Dutch, so even if I maintained my language skills, going to Amsterdam would have been like somebody turning up in London and talking like an extra in a made-for-TV movie about the Krays. :lol:

His voice and cadence is very strange. :lol:

Definitely unrepentant, though.

I did find an interview on u-tube by him to a woman journalist while he was in prison after only 3 years incarcerated. I found his voice to be way more high-pitched than I imagined it would be-----similar to General George Patton's voice really.

And yes, he is in no way repentant for anything he's done to the people he sent bombs to, maiming many and killing 3.

I was really surprised to hear Patton's voice being higher than I had imagine after reading mostly about him. It's not too bad, but higher than I had expected. Interesting character, good strategist, bit of a cunt though at times.

Yeah that's the one. High pitched and much more sing-songey than I would have expected, and he is much chattier, laughs a lot more and has more of a sense of humour than I would have expected. I would have expected more of a flat, disconnected affect, with a much more terse and surly demeanour.

Yeah, his voice was nothing like George C. Scott's portrayal of him in the film "Patton". I think if they'd had used an actor with a more realistic version of Patton's voice, the film would have been a flop to be honest.

It's kind of like realizing John Wayne's real name was Marion Morrison-------not much of a macho image with that one on the screen when the names of the stars roll by.

Was the Waco drama that was made a few years ago any good?
It was very good. The worst thing is the police couldve grabbed him at any time as he frequently went on runs in town, but wanted to stage this grand siege of the compound. Koresh might have been a wacko and sex pest but the blame totally goes on law enforcement. The people screaming they surrender as they burn to death is harrowing. As someone who is anti-organized religion especially death cults I expected to go in and at least take a critical view of the cult but it definitely presents both sides. It doesnt shy away from how big of a creep Koresh was, but it also doesnt shy away from the fact that the feds were out for blood and cooler heads couldve prevented 25 children from burning to death.

That case has always fascinated me, but unfortunately, I can't find as much source material as a lot of it isn't in English.

I guess we forget that there was a few European based terror groups that were active back then. Yeah I recall the reward from their robberies paled in comparison to the violence they meted out, including the fact that they were able to kill and out gun a few of their first responders.

I am as Dutch as Dutch can be
Most Dutch I've met in my time have been lovely folk. Also, the younger one's I've met have all had a near perfect command of English, in comparison to their neighbors. Maybe the Swedes might give them a run for their money, but yeah, it's cool.

I'm just glad your not Dutch from SA (Boer) :lol:

So I've posted about the Brabant Killers before.

A three-man (they think) gang that was active in Belgium in the 1980s, committing a string of extremely violent robberies, during which they murdered a total of 28 people. One robbery was of a supermarket, they murdered eight people, including a nine year old girl in a car outside, and stole a couple grands worth of cash, booze and cigarettes.

There were three men that witnesses described, though they disguised their faces. The three men are known as The Giant (very tall and apparently the leader), The Killer (murdered most of the victims), and The Old Man, who seemed to be the driver. Speculation runs rampant with these guys, but most people seem to think they were criminals who had connections to elite police forces and/or high levels of government, and that they were extreme right wing militants who hated society and just wanted to cause social strife. There's also a big rumour and some evidence that one of them, likely the Killer, was mortally wounded in a shootout during their last robbery, and either died or was murdered by the other two and buried in a forest.

Nobody has ever been arrested or charged with any crime in relation to the Brabant Gang robberies, thefts and murders.

Aaaaaanyway.

That was decades ago, they'd be old men now if they were still alive.

But then, in June this year, Belgian police suddenly released this photo, which was sent anonymously to the investigating team in 1986, with a note saying that this is "a very important person" in the case:




Something about this photo makes the Belgian police think it's legitimate enough that 34 years later, they finally asked the public for help identifying the mystery man posing in the forest with an auto shotgun.

Is this mystery man one of the Brabant Killers?

:hat
That's Lou Reed, man. He died a few years ago.

I've mentioned this before, a cousin of mine perished in the Waco siege along with the others. If I recall, the early handling was done by the ATF on the suspicion that they were stockpiling illegal weapons, and were the ones to receive the warrant for the search, but I can't recall if it was them or the FBI that bungled it leading to the fire.
