Dude yesterday on 28. August 2021 at evening not even dark on Haarlemmerdijk street five african kids dressed like street ghetto kids, you know, standed infront of a house and a old woman went inside and two of them followed her!!! Three of them were standing outside watching. They realized we watched and one of then started whistling at us and yelling. We walked fast as possible because we realized what was going on but I hope nothing happened to her :(

You're only safe if you're not surrounded by muslims and black people, but this shouldn't come as a surprise as they're genetically more likely to rob you

I saw that a young guy (curly black hair, a light tan, I think a Morrocan) shoots another person in the chest. I was so afraid that I didn’t know what to do, so i just took a cap to my hotel.
It was at the west part of Amsterdam tho.

Amsterdam is absolutely unsafe. It became a mecca for organized criminality and the totally incompetent major and her administration are unable to fight it cause they are total incompetents ! What the city needs it someone with real balls taking all the scum and possibly dropping them from an airplane in open sea. Crimes are on the rise enormously and almost every day there is a shooting or hand grenades left around the city or an attempt to rob an ATM.

This is not a city it is a toilette and who says the opposite is some millionaire living in the top neighborhoods.
