He. Almost a 130.000 people have signed an online petition to stop it. It's normal for Danish zoos to do this, but wow, it really pisses some people off.

it seems crazy to me - if they had to put him down anyway, why not make it an educational experience?

Denmark Plans to Isolate Unwanted Migrants on a Small Island

I guess this is the most-current Denmark thread, lol

yeah that's obviously not the brightest idea of all time but it's not as if the people affected are much better off atm - they're officially deported but cannot be sent home since they risk torture/death penalty, in the end they choose to stay in Denmark but they are not allowed to work/marry/vote, they have to register at local asylum centers daily and they hardly have any income...

some evil motherfuckers among them for sure, terrorists and war criminals, but feel bad for the rejected asylum seekers (I also understand the necessity of being able to reject some asylum seekers)

There's a rolling Danish politics thread, just for this :) And it's complete bullshit, they're spending something like 300.000$ per asylum seeker so that they can say they've send them to a small island. Politicians crowing about how horrible they've been to people of color. That's Denmark.

Yes, I imagine we all feel bad for the rejected asylum seekers being housed alongside criminals and terrorists on an island called The Virus.

Jesus Christ.

I believe there's still a fair chance that this doesn't actually happen

It's not called the Virus, and they're all criminals. Still, 'Jesus Christ' is in order, it's a fucking disgrace.

Also, yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if this was too stupid and expensive even for Støjberg.
