Violent riots continued for a second night in the southern Stockholm suburb of Alby, known for its significant immigrant population, RT’s Ruptly agency reports. Protesters set fire to cars and pelted police and emergency services with rocks and pyrotechnics.As predicted but a bit ahead of my timetable. What should have every US reader spinning is the fact that NOT ONE major news source here is reporting this news. This thing is already spiraling and European authorities are behind the power curve in trying to control events.
On Thursday night, police were patrolling the suburb, which is home to large Syrian and Armenian diasporas, as well as more recent Iraqi refugees, when a rock flew through the back window of their parked car.
As officers searched for the culprits, the rioters set fire to tires on a public bridge, and poured gasoline over several cars, before lighting them up. When fire crews arrived they were also showered with projectiles.
On Friday night, police encountered yet more clashes with residents, although there has been no official confirmation of a link between the scuffles.
One man was arrested Thursday, but has since been released.
Do you still think I'm over the top for predicting that Europe will burn this summer?
