Drugs like crack and cocaine continue to circulate. And rival gang factions engage in gunfights in close proximity to the city center of Brussels according to troubling new reports.

Police apprehend drug traffickers and seize illicit substances on a near-daily basis. However, traffickers continue to return, and the populace is growing weary.

As record quantities of cocaine are seized throughout Europe, the capital city of the European Union is witnessing an increase in drug-related violent crime.

Brussels, a once quaint and safe city in Belgium has now become the plagued with gangs, violence and drugs. The majority of which is caused by recent immigrants to the country.

Tuesday, one of the recent shootings occurred during a day of festivities preceding Lent, when numerous educational institutions are closed to permit students to congregate in the streets in celebration.

The entire nation is alarmed by the sequence of events which has upended their once peaceful community.

Because Antwerp serves as the primary entry point for cocaine cartels from Latin America to the continent, the Belgian port city has been plagued by gang violence for years.

In light of the nationwide increase in drug use, federal authorities assert that drug trafficking is penetrating society at an alarming rate.

The Brussels public prosecutor’s office declares an almost daily stream of arrests, significant cash and narcotic seizures.

The escalating prevalence of crack cocaine, as well as the open dealing and use of drugs in certain central neighborhoods, has worsened an already dire situation in the country of 11.5 million in the past year.

As a result, petty thievery, fights, and harassment of tourists have become daily headlines and with no clear plan from authorities this doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon.
