Now schools, police stations and cars are being set on fire, but looting has not been reported. So far the army has not been deployed.
There is a lot of chatter on the Finance forums I read, that expect similar riots to occur in Europe during the summer. Specially, Greece, Spain, Italy where increasing economic crisis and youth unemployment is over 25% is a tinderbox. Wonder when they start to throw out the "rights" rule book. Already this year Sweden implemented a de facto racial profiling with project REVA. What's next.
Another aspect I find puzzling is that there is very little reporting of the riots in the US and UK. As of Friday, The NY Times World Section does not have a word on the riots.
Update: Apparently this is not the first time this has happened.
In 2010, up to 100 youths threw bricks, set fires and attacked the local police station in the immigrant-heavy suburb of Rinkeby for two nights. \
And in 2008, hundreds of youths rioted against police in the southern Swedish town of Malmoe, sparked by the closure of an Islamic cultural centre in the suburb of Rosengaard that housed a mosque.The news from the horses mouth
