    Russia Today:
    "One of Europe's most peaceful capitals, Stockholm, is witnessing its worst outbreak of violence in years. Hundreds of youths, mostly immigrants, have ripped through the city's suburbs in four nights of unrest. The violence has shocked the country, famous for its attractive immigration policies and generous welfare system."

    "We've had around 30 cars set on fire last night, fires that we connect to youth gangs and criminals," said Kjell Lindgren.

    Some 15 percent of the population are foreign-born, and unemployment among these stands at 16 percent, compared with 6 percent for native Swedes, according to OECD data.
    Out of a total 103,000 immigrants last year, 43,900 were asylum seekers, almost 50 percent up from 2011. Nearly half of these were refugees from fighting in Syria, Afghanistan or Somalia, and will get at least temporary residency.

    Among 44 industrialized countries, Sweden ranks fourth in the absolute number of asylum seekers.

    Djalaie said youths were often stopped by police in the streets for unnecessary identity checks. During the riots, he said some police called local youths "apes".

    Sweden is cutting benefits because they're running out of other people's money.

    If they keep letting mud people in it's going to ruin the country. Hopefully they can deport them before things get really bad.
