Amsterdam plans to relocate troublemakers to ‘scum villages’

There are 13 comments on the www.washingtonpost.com story from Dec 5, 2012, titled Amsterdam plans to relocate troublemakers to ‘scum villages’. In it, www.washingtonpost.com reports that:

In a move that sounds straight out of Orwell, Amsterdam allocated 1 million euros last week to a plan that would relocate trouble-making neighbors to camps on the outskirts of the city, the BBC reports. The “scum villages,” as critics have called them, would lie in isolated areas and provide only basic services to their unwilling residents. According to details of the plan reported by Der Spiegel and the BBC, residents will live in “container homes,” under the watchful eye of social workers or police. The residents themselves might not make very good company. According to the BBC, they’ll include families that engage in repeated, small-scale harassment, like bullying gay neighbors or intimidating police witnesses.

Actor George Takei was relocated with his family to an American concentration camp during the war simply because of his Japanese ancestry.

This was not done to German-Americans.

They've been called "reservations" for more than a century. Ask a Native-American.

While the number of people of German descent rounded up and sent to detention centers was a 1/10th the number of people of Japanese descent, there were German-Americans sent to detention centers. For the most part, German-Americans were detained at the same camps as Japanese-Americans.
