Amsterdam to create 'scum villages'



The Telegraph

quote:

Amsterdam is to create "Scum villages" where nuisance neighbours and anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and rehoused in caravans or containers with "minimal services" under constant police supervision.


This is some scary shite. A government that can give you everything can take it away.

My understanding is that individuals who are perpetually 'anti-social' will be redirected to live at these new settlements.

Of course, the Telegraph doesn't really have much detail, so there may be some large inferences being made.

Article made it sound more like a "24 hours to get out of town" kind of thing. Exiling people away from the "good" areas of town.

We just put them in jail or shoot them. Their way sounds more humane.

The incarceration rate ratio between the US and the Netherlands is 8.39:1, so yea, we just lock our undesirables in cages.

You know what we'd call it in the US if the villages used caged housing?

The prison system

Nuisance neighbours and anti-social tenants espicially those on the dole, have the right to live where they want, actions should not have consequences, personal responsibility sucks, others can be abused because we have total personnel freedom.

These aren't property owners randomly losing their rights, these are most likely welfare clients probably mainly Moslems that are breaking laws; most of you guys want to turn them to glass anyway I don't see why the outrage for encouraging them perhaps go back to the land with out people, from which they came.

How so? We confine almost 1000% more of our citizens in real jails than they do, they are going to take what we would consider criminals that are on the dole, and move them out of functional neighborhoods where the government placed them and put them into less desirable public accommodations because of their behavior.

Let's see do I want to be in Parish prison in NO for being antisocial (a euphemism for criminal behavior) or do I want to lose my nice section 8 housing and get moved out to a crap neighborhood with my peer group?
