Here’s a report on troublemakers “of an ethnic origin other than Danish” from today’s Jyllands-Posten, as translated by Signe. The translator notes:
It’s a trend. We often hear about this problem with groups of Muslims, who don’t to wash before entering a public swimming pool because they are embarrassed to show… whatever. It is just amazing how their disturbed relationship with nudity and sex and general antisocial behaviour rarely has any particular consequences for them. Political correctness, as usual, prevents management and authorities from taking the only sensible measures: denying the “troublemakers” access — permanently.

A 20-year-old male was Tuesday afternoon arrested by the police in the hot water basin of a public swimming pool in Slagelse.
A 20-year-old troublemaker was Tuesday afternoon arrested in Slagelse’s public swimming pool and taken to the police car wearing only bathing trunks and handcuffs.
So reports the regional newspaper Sjællandske.
Trouble in the swimming pool
According to the newspaper a group of 10-15 youths has for a lengthy period been causing trouble for both staff and guests of the pool. “They break practically all the rules of the facility. They don’t wash, they jump in the water where it is not allowed, they swim where other people jump, they make “cannonballs” close to others, they are three on the diving board at the same time, they throw balls and toys at others, and they yell and make noise in the hot water basin, where it should be quiet”, says pool controller Jimmie Bjørch to Sjællandske.
Arrested in hot water basin
Tuesday, the police were called to stop the 20-year-old. When the officers found him, he was, according to Sjællandske, “partly submerged right under the diving board in the hot water basin.”
After he was arrested and taken to the squad car, the officers came in and collected his clothes. The young man got his clothes back, according to Sjællandske — along with a fine of DKK 500 (EUR 67).
The young troublemakers in the swimming pool are all of an ethnic origin other than Danish, according to Sjællandske.
