Bodil Sø, the local chairman for political party Venstre in Køge, was picking up her son up from a friend’s home on Tuesday of last week when she was unexpectedly met by three masked young men from Denmark’s largest immigrant street gang, Black Cobra, who told her that she needed to leave.  

 

“I am pretty shocked,” Sø told Dagbladet Køge. “At that moment, I didn’t know whether two seconds later bullets would be flying past my ears. But I couldn’t leave my son in the middle of it all.”  

 

Sø decided to wait in the car so that she would be ready to drive off as soon as her son came out. Just before her son reached the car, however, a gang member knocked on her window. He said that she should not drive with her high beams on in the area, and that she should drive away for her own sake.

 

“My mind raced while I tried to figure out what to do,” Sø told Dagbladet Køge. She asked the man if she could pick up her son, and said that if allowed, she would immediately leave the neighbourhood. Black Cobra regards the area, Ellemarken, as their own.

 

After the incident, Sø contacted the police, who sent a patrol car to the scene. The police arrested five individuals, charged them with disorderly conduct, and banned them from the area. 

 

Sø said there should be stricter penalties put in place for gangs and called for re-opening local youth clubs in order to ensure that gang warfare doesn’t break out in the area.

 

Police spokesperson Sten Skovgaard Larsen told BT tabloid that what happened to Sø was “completely inappropriate”.

 

The Black Cobra gang was founded in Roskilde in 2000, and is now composed of approximately 100 members. It is represented throughout most major Danish cities.
