I suspect it's just the normal spring riots.  Nothing to see.

Police are especially interested in interviewing this group of women.

It has nothing to do with the riots, they just really want to talk to them.

In Europe, riots (as in the article) start in the suburbs because that's where the poor people live.

Actually, it's really not that different in the US these days.

"Lindgren says 30 vehicles were set ablaze in six suburbs where mainly immigrants live"

They've got a problem over there with Muslim youths who REALLY do not want to integrate AT ALL with their new country.
Before you ask, there aren't a lot of other "immigrants"...they're just too polite to come out and say it.

"The unrest began Sunday in response to the May 13 shooting, in which police killed a 69-year-old, knife-wielding man in a northwestern suburb."

Classy...burn down a nursery because the police were doing their jobs.

From BBC:
"We have groups of young men who think that that they can and should change society with violence. Let's be clear: this is not okay. We cannot be ruled by violence."

More than 80% of Husby's 12,000 or so inhabitants are from an immigrant background, and most are from Turkey, the Middle East and Somalia.


Police shoot a machete wielding maniac, and the immigrants riot. Religion of peace.

Groups of youth have smashed shop windows, set cars ablaze and burnt down a cultural center as the riots that started in one Stockholm suburb after a fatal police shooting spread to other low-income areas of the Swedish capital.

How does a fatal police shooting spread?

Because it's of interest to their customers?
Which is to say it's an event that fits the tabloid-framing they look (A) for *and* re-inforces the preconceived world-view of their readers (B).
(A) riots are exciting.
(B) immigrants are dirty poors who don't integrate and are ungrateful and unruly even if you *do* give them a 'hammock'-level social safety net.

They can't really integrate because they can't be citizens. No birthright citizenship means those born in Sweden or many other European countries are forever held apart. Father not a Swedish citizen? Too bad.

I'd be pissed off too. Hell, I don't even want to step foot in another country where I'd lack citizenship protection.

That's right...everybody should just change their laws to accommodate the muslims.  While we're at it, let's get rid of booze and bacon...don't want to offend them.  Oh and we need to cover up our women.

Don't like a country's laws?  Go somewhere else or just stay home.

Except that they have all the protections of citizens, and access to all the same social supports that citizens have. Also, an immigrant to Sweden can simply become a naturalized citizen, just like in the US and most other countries.

Not true.
Children born in Sweden to stateless or immigrant parents can acquire citizenship pretty easily, if I read this document correctly.

I sense a sarcastic tone, even though you describe pretty accurately what is actually going on.  You've got groups of people who were given asylum from war torn hell holes, handed universal welfare, and they return the favor by burning the city down when ever the mood strikes them.

Vectron: Ah,  muslim immigrants.

See, a lot of people act like the high immigration here is some sort of white guilt. But it isn't. It is importing a labor force for crap labor, and for producing babies.

See, Sweden has a generous social care system. But that system has to be fed with tax dollars. More people available to work means more people paying taxes to support the welfare system. With an aging population, the costs associated with the social programs.

People like to pretend that the generous child leave here is to empower women, and let them have access to the work place. Sure, that is part of it, but one of the real reasons is so women make the babies to fund the future. In a way this backfires, because if you work in a rapidly changing environment, tech and so on, do you really want to hire a woman who after you invested in training them gets pregnant, and is then gone for a long time, forcing you to hire someone in her place while she takes off lots of time. My wife had issues when she was looking for a job because she is almost 30, married, and has no kids. Places look at her as a womb waiting to be filled.

Immigration here is about investing in the future of the social welfare state by making sure that the future will hold enough taxpayers.
