(Telegraph)   Amsterdam to create "Scum Villages" where nuisance neighbors, anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and housed in caravans or containers with minimal services under constant police supervision.

Yeah, let's put all the undesireables into one place. It'll be easier to keep an eye on them that way. Nothing can go wrong.

Does Amsterdam have tornadoes?

Can't have a trailer park without tornadoes.

There are small pockets of good areas, you just have to pay a lot to live there. I work in Hunt Valley but live all the way out in Frederick.

2012-12-04 08:42:58 AM
Great idea. I'm sure there will be warnings before they're finally sent there, so there's no-one to blame but themselves if it does happen.

Or as they're already known in Europa: The Roma.

First they came for the bad neighbors, and I said nothing because I hate living near bad neighbors and the scumbags get what they deserve, and I was happy.

Scum Village would be a cool band name.
 
2012-12-04 08:53:05 AM
They made this same kind of thing as the basis behind the plot for:

So unless everybody flies away on their own spaceship into the sunset; I don't think this little social experiment is going to work too well.
 
2012-12-04 08:53:19 AM
What if that becomes the area with the better restaurants, clubs and artists? I'd imagine it might backfire into a type of NYC where service caters to these types of people very well.

/Yes, I say this and I love NYC.

They still make that swill?

My aunt worked there for decades. She's gone now but my house is still has a lot of stuff from that company.

Thing is... that's exactly what the ghettos were when they opened.

I hope they attach some sort of domestically made steering mechanism on them in case it floods.

It might sound nice until you realize that it gives the 80 year old that loves to biatch about everything all the power.

Not as monumentally stupid as paying for peopel to be shiatty neighbors and harrass people in their neighborhood.

We call it Larkhall.
 
2012-12-04 09:01:12 AM
I read the article, but I haven't had my coffee yet, so I'm a bit confused. Are they talking about all undesirable neighbors, or just people who are in public housing already? The former is kind of creepy, but the latter totally make sense. If you want a free house you gotta behave, or you get a crappy free house.

/still socialist
//but do they get phones?!
 
2012-12-04 09:01:34 AM
This will turn Amsterdam into a ghost town. It would be cheaper to move the minority good folk out and erect a fence around it.

Not de jure, because it's only supposed to be temporary: it's more like a kind of really low-security prison. But we'll see how long "temporary" lasts when put to the tests; I suspect this thing will wind up as a de facto ghetto soon enough.

Personally, I'm horrified by this. Being a jerk should not be a crime.
 
2012-12-04 09:13:05 AM
Saw the pic of Wilders. Thought it was an example of the kind of people they want to put in the villages.
 
2012-12-04 09:13:07 AM
They haven't had trailer parks? Where do they do their tornado testing?
