Stockholm rioting continues for fifth night

Swedish police seek reinforcements after youths set ablaze cars and attack property and schools in poorer suburbs of capital


Police in Stockholm are to seek reinforcements after youths set cars ablaze and threw stones at police for a fifth night running, officials said.

About 30 cars were set on fire in poorer districts in north-western and south-western parts of the Swedish capital on Thursday night, with rioters causing widespread damage to property, including schools. However, a police spokesman said the overnight violence was less intense than in previous nights.

Despite Sweden's reputation for equality, the rioting has exposed a faultline between a well-off majority and a minority, often young people with immigrant backgrounds, who cannot find work, lack education and feel marginalised.

"In terms of extent, it is a little less, a little quieter," said the police spokesman, Kjell Lindgren. Eight people, mostly in their early 20s, were detained during the night.

He said police planned to request reinforcements from other areas to help deal with the rioting as well as upcoming football matches and the wedding of Princess Madeleine, third in line to the throne, on 8 June.

He said the police needed to be prepared to maintain a heavy presence on the streets. "We will do that for days, weeks, as long as it is necessary," he said.

The violence appears to have been prompted by the death of a 69-year-old man shot by police this month in Husby, now the centre of the rioting.

One recent government study showed that up to a third of young people aged 16 to 29 in some of the most-deprived areas of Sweden's big cities neither study nor have a job.

The gap between rich and poor in Sweden is growing faster than in any other major nation, according to the OECD, although absolute poverty remains uncommon.

So what?
We were discussing why more people didn't have access to better shelter from the storm-hense why so many houses appeared not to have basements.

Not to mention, but even more specifically-why school kids in school didn't have better shelter, where shelters SHOULD be mandatory!!

Interesting! Even if anyone just alloted a smaller area, just for temporary use, would be better than nothing at all.

You demand a source and then go on to say "I heard he's a die hard member of the teaparty and a christian evangelical christian who knows that god's will is to have women stay home, obey their man and be quiet"....

...without quoting a source!

Don't worry John. Some dumb liberal socialist weenie Democrat (PDUPONT) said this morning Sweden is doing just fine. As with Obama, we must not believe what is reality, but we must believe the lies they tell us.

The Democrats want us to be like Greece and Sweden!

Unbelievable! I never thought in my lifetime the Democrats would "evolve" into such morons, but they have.

ABC just revealed Holder signed a document to spy on the media where Holder lied to Congress and said he had no knowledge.

Finally, one of the two big liars is busted.

I hope they can nail this scumbag to the wall. More likely is that the dirtbag will just go away soon.

Then he needs to straighten Holder out some. America has a right to know about what's going on with stuff like Gitmo, and there's nothing right about going after the AP for reporting on issues like that. That's like "borrowing" money from people with out them knowing it...and then trying to blame it on someone else.
There's criminal implications in doing stuff like that.

<quoted text>Bringing other religions down to the level of Islam is one of the most popular strategies of Moslem apologists when confronted with the spectacle of Islamic violence.
Muslims love talking about the Crusades… and Christians love apologizing for them. To hear both parties tell the story, one would believe that Moslems were just peacefully minding their own business in lands that were legitimately Moslem, when Christian armies decided to wage holy war and "kill millions.”
The Truth:
Every part of this myth is a lie. By the rules that Moslems claim for themselves, the Crusades were perfectly justified, and the excesses (though beneath Christian standards) pale in comparison with the historical treatment of conquered populations at the hands of Moslems.
Here are some quick facts…
The first Crusade began in 1095… 460 years after the first Christian city was overrun by Moslem armies, 457 years after Jerusalem was conquered by Moslem armies, 453 years after Egypt was taken by Moslem armies, 443 after Moslems first plundered Italy, 427 years after Moslem armies first laid siege to the Christian capital of Constantinople, 380 years after Spain was conquered by Moslem armies, 363 years after France was first attacked by Moslem armies, 249 years after the capital of the Christian world, Rome itself, was sacked by a Moslem army, and only after centuries of church burnings, killings, enslavement and forced conversions of Christians.
By the time the Crusades finally began, Moslem armies had conquered two-thirds of the Christian world.
I know my history you little twit.
And Muslims came very close to conquering Europe.

This time around, European Progressives will give it away.

...and here in the USA, the Magic Negro will pave the way for them.

Mostly because who would want to have to live in underground caves all the time.

Ewe.

(but temporary community shelters for those who might not have access to otherwise, might not be a bad idea.)
