If Belgium had a similarly acute sense of causality as this gentleman from Morocco, so much unpleasantness could have been avoided.
A used car salesman threatened to kill three policemen in Molenbeek, Belgium. 22 year old Tahar did not like that the police had towed that had been parked on a public street without insurance. A car that Tahar had intended to sell for 5,000 Euros. The police explained to Tahar that he could get the car released, but he did not see it that way, returning three times to the police station to make threats in Arabic. “If you do not release my car, I’ll kill you all and then I’ll go back to Morocco.”
Of course if Tahar had not been allowed into Belgium in the first place, he would not have had a, likely stolen, car for the police to tow which would have eliminated the necessity for him to propose a killing spree followed by a return to Morocco.
If the Belgian authorities had exercised better judgement, there would be fewer stolen cars and Tahars in Belgium.
