Talk about double standards. Some parts of the Dutch political parties, in this case the socialist PVDA, want to make illegal the escorting of funerals of 1%er by 1%ers. In other words, when one of their own 1%er gang dies, the other members would not be allowed to escort the deceased to their funeral (if the law is passed, which isn't the case ... yet).
The reason cited by the politicians is that the funeral procession has got nothing to do with honoring a fallen comrade but more "flying the flag", or "showing the colors".
So... when a soldier dies and is buried, other soldiers are not allowed to escort the funeral? Maybe we're talking two sides of a medallion, but the principle remains the same. Not allowing gang members to attend the funeral of one of their own is indecent. It serves no purpose except posturing by the politicians.
