Doormen working in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, are often armed with guns or clubs so as to be able to defend themselves against violent immigrant gangs, the owner of a private security company told Danish media this morning. According to the security company manager, it is more dangerous than ever before to be a doorman. There is more violence than ever before and some immigrant gangs have even been known to seek out doormen at their private homes. Copenhagen police said this morning that the police would focus more on the doormen in the future, and added that the armed conflict between the doormen and immigrant gangs gave cause for concern. At the same time, the police force in the Danish capital is also going to do more to fight gang crime in Copenhagen, monitoring and registrating all immigrants who are gang members.
