"But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear?...It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquillity and the status quo than about justice and humanity."

... until someone close to you gets hurt or killed..

It doesn't mean that riots are good. It's saying that riots are a sympton of the problem, and not the root of the problem itself.

This has happened many times before here, also in Tensta and Husby. Riots in this part of the city are quite common and burning cars are more or less a daily occurrence. There's a fairly shady area close to where I work as well, when I first started in late 2013, there would be 1-2 burned out cars on the parking lot outside the mall after every weekend.

 

Edit; no one was killed but two were injured, one was a journalist who was jumped by about 12-15 men. Lots of journalists have been attacked in this part of the city. It becomes a self fulfilling statement when people say that people here are violent, and the local citizens are outraged and the trash talking and resort to violence... They have also been know to call the police on fake missions so they can ambush them with rocks and even a hand grenade last year, destroying ambulances is also quite common in this area and ambulances are adviced to request a police escort.

Isn't that the very thing Trump said. He was talking about a FoxNews report they did the night before or something that was talking about how Sweeden is now seeing what you described above and more, such as rapes, ect due to the immigrations.

The media does a whole nit picking of his wording to try and paint what he said as him saying there was a terrorist attack the night before, to descredit him, draw aways the peoples attention from a problem, ect.

All this rioting does is add some credence to what Trump was saying. Immigrants are not mixing well with Sweeden and crime is getting out of hand.

 

Why were you interviewed?

”It was supposed to be about crime in high risk areas. Areas with high crime rates. There wasn’t any focus on migration or immigration”.

The people that were interviewed exposed the Foxnews hack and his anti-immigrant sentiment. Howitz misrepresented the officers' words to fit his agenda.

Oh my good God. These riots are taking place because the government are covering it up, the media aren't reporting it clearly and the populous are still in denial. They're running amock just because they can. Wake up.

Irrelivent.

The point is that trump was not talking about a specific terrorist attack, he was referring to how a fox news report showed that crime was skyrocketing due to muslim immigrants or something. It is not Trumps fault that the segment had edited stuff to make it appear one way or another. He was just reffering to something he saw.  (All media skew there interviews. Just look at recent PewDiePie scenerio. They used his clips of his making fun of the media by being dressed up as a nazi supporter watching hitler videos as further proof of his antisemitism)

But whether Fox news distorted stuff or not is irrelivent to this situation.

The facts are that Trump talked about how Sweeden is facing more crime due to immigrants. Whehter or not that is true is beside teh point. He stated that.

The day after he states that, immigrants start a riot when a police officer tries to arrest one of them.

These riots are doing nothign but giving credence to Trumps statements, whether or not they were based on a lie or not of foxnews.

Sure, like people in a foreign country, where they could risk being deported, would just riot for the fun of it.

Can you provide a chart that links the spike in violence to migrants?

its always the bad ones that make the good ones look bad, and that creates racism.



Let's calm down now. It's not rioting in Sweden, it was an incident in Rinkeby, a suburb to Stockholm where around 30 people got angry because of a protest and some of them (far from all) got violent. One idiot lit a fire and the police were forced to shoot one shot. Thos happens around 20 times each year and fatalities because of police shooting happens around two times a year. So I think some perspective is needed here :).



Isn't this just enriching Sweden? #Stoptheracism



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).
