Lars Hedegaard Case: PEGIDA Leader Arrested For Wearing T-Shirt Depicting Accused Assassin’s Name

Thanks to Vlad Tepes for the video and the interview with Tania.

Two years ago Diana West reported that her friend, Danish historian and publisher Lars Hedegaard, narrowly escaped a Muslim assassin’s bullet, fired at his head when he opened his front door for what was by all appearances a postman dressed in uniform.  The Danish publisher has long been an outspoken opponent of the Islamization of the West.  After the bullet whizzed by his ear Hedegaard attacked the gunman.  Following a struggle over the weapon, the killer escaped.

The would-be-assassin, whose history includes some fairly deep ties to jihadist organizations, was later arrested in Turkey, then released to Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as part of a prisoner exchange.  The Danish and Turkish authorities kept the assassin’s name a secret.

Following the would-be-murderer’s release, the victim Lars Hedegaard was placed under Danish police orders not to reveal the man’s name, Basil Hassan, to anyone.  Yes.  You read that correctly.  The gunman is still at large.  And Lars Hedegaard is not to speak or publish his name.

Well, Hedegaard apparently did not obey the order to keep his mouth closed about the identity of his would-be-killer.  As a result of his defiance Lars is himself now the defendant in a criminal Court proceeding for divulging that gunman’s name.  This morning, February 26, 2016, PEGIDA-Denmark supporters showed up at the Danish Court to support Hedegaard and were arrested for displaying t-shirts emblazoned with the accused fugitive assassin’s name.

The takeaway?  Hush, hush.  We mustn’t offend them.  They might try to kill us if we do that.  And don’t speak their names.  The authorities will put us into prison if we do that.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
