The first thing I noticed when exiting the train in Antwerp Central Station.
A police officer with a semi automatic machinegun.
The aftermath of the Charlie shooting in Paris.
Second thing: it doesn’t make me feel safer. On the contrary. I feel uncomfortable and don’t trust it.
In the evening when I tell my seven year old son what I saw, he replied: ‘No, it can’t be. Cops do not carry machine guns’
Now that’s real wisdom.
