    A recent hammer attack that killed a 32-year-old immigrant has members of St. Louis' sizable Bosnian community embracing some of the same tactics as Ferguson protesters — albeit in hopes of attracting a stronger police presence rather than opposing it.

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) A victim of the knockout game decided that he would not let the teenage attackers get away with the violent assault, chased them down, and managed to bring them to justice. In a related report by The Inquisitr, the idea behind the knockout game is that a group or an individual targets the first person they see and attempts to knock the unsuspecting person unconscious with just one punch. Media reports have focused on “black mobs” going after Jews when targeting people. There is also a book that documents the trend toward violence called White Girl Bleed a Lot:...

    The bicyclist doesn’t remember seeing the youths run at him as he pedaled home late Tuesday afternoon on the Metropolitan Branch Trail, but he certainly recalls one knocking him off his bike and at least a dozen others piling on, punching and kicking him in the head. What the 37-year-old can’t understand is why they did it. They didn’t take his $500 bicycle. They ignored his cellphone. They didn’t want the $20 in his wallet. In fact, the victim said, “I didn’t hear a word.” And the lack of apparent motive is haunting the married father of two, who uses...

    The nightly rioting in Stockholm that establishment media ascribes merely to “youths,” is being carried out by Muslim immigrants. Muslim immigrants in Sweden now total slightly more than 6 percent of the population, providing additional support for the maxim that a Muslim population of 5 percent is a tipping point for political turmoil. In other countries, Muslim immigrants at that point have begun to seek concessions, including, typically, the right to govern themselves by Shariah, or Islamic law. In Sweden, the Muslim population has doubled in the last 14 years, with Muslims now accounting for over 41 percent of Sweden’s...

    Car owners whose auto was torched during immigrant rioting aren’t getting sympathy from local officials… They’re getting tickets. The police chose to “wait” and “not to intervene” when the gangs burned cars. But those car owners who could not move their burnt-out wrecks, however, were fined. Rioting continued for the sixth straight night last night.

    Police in Stockholm called in reinforcements on Friday after youths set cars and a school ablaze in a fifth night of rioting, the worst to hit Sweden for years. Pupils at a primary school in Kista - an IT hub that is home to the likes of telecoms equipment maker Ericsson and the Swedish office of Microsoft - arrived to find the inside of the small red wooden building had been completely burnt out. While Thursday was slightly calmer than the four nights before, about 30 cars were torched and eight people, mostly in their early 20s, were detained, police...

    Youth gang riots in the Swedish capital Stockholm have entered fifth straight night. Hundreds of mostly immigrant teenagers tore through the suburbs, smashing windows and burning cars in the country’s worst outbreak of violence in years. At least six vehicles were torched throughout the city late on Thursday while the police called for reinforcements from other Swedish cities bracing for further unrest. Firefighters were putting out flames that engulfed several cars and a school in immigrant-dominated areas of Stockholm. The night before, the fire brigades were called to some 90 different blazes. On the fourth night of violence, youths torched...

It seems underlying tensions from high youth unemployment and rising nationalism against the nation's large immigrant population have been catalyzed by this seemingly unrelated event. As the Daily Mail notes, immigrant ghettos have been created where unemployment is high and there are few opportunities for residents with left-leaning commenters adding that the riots represented a 'gigantic failure' of government policies, which had underpinned the rise of ghettos...

    My wife and I have different perspectives on the youth violence epidemic that currently plagues our urban neighborhood. She thinks some of the miscreants could be helped by more targeted after-school programs staffed by caring adults. I think there are plenty after-school programs and, besides, the teens perpetrating the violence, often after 11 p.m., are not the sort of individuals who would attend after-school programs. I believe more extreme measures are in order. The back-story: since early summer, packs of up to a dozen young teenagers have been accosting random middle-aged or elderly males in an attempt to knock them...

    The local media would not release the race of the teens but the “knock out game” is popular with black youth mobs in St. Louis. KSDK reported: St. Louis police are looking for a group of 10 to 15 people who brutally beat a 51-year-old man. It happened near the public library in the 3300 block of South Grand around 11:40 p.m. on October 21. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay was the first person to spot the victim. He tells NewsChannel 5 he was driving along Grand with his security officer when they saw the crowd from a distance. Slay...

    France's run-down city suburbs are becoming ‘separate Islamic societies’ cut off from the state, a report has warned. Arab communities are increasingly rejecting French values and identity to immerse themselves in Muslim culture and lifestyle, it was found. Muslim pupils often boycott school dinners if the food is not halal and most Arabs oppose marriages to white French citizens, the study by respected political scientist Gilles Kepel revealed. As a result, France – whose five million Muslims make up Europe’s largest Islamic population – was turning into a ‘divided nation’, the study called Suburbs of the Republic found. Dr Kepel...

    Youth unemployment is at an all time high as job growth hasn't kept pace with population growth. In developed countries the situation worsened with the onset of the recession.

We put together a list of 16 countries that have a youth unemployment rate higher than America's 18.4%. Note: Data is for 2010

    A woman who confessed to her role in a vicious beating of a transgender woman in a Maryland McDonald's has been sentenced to five years in jail. Teonna Brown, 19, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree assault and a hate crime and was sentenced in Maryland court on Tuesday. The April beating at the McDonald's in Rosedale attracted national attention after a video of the attack was posted online. A girl who was 14 at the time of the attack admitted her role in juvenile court and was committed to a detention facility. State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger says the beating...

    A series of fights broke out after a teen dance party in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday night, causing wild scenes on busy streets, and leading to the arrests of three participants. Early news reports called the action a "riot," but that term has since been downgraded to "mini-riot." The trouble started as hundreds of teenagers poured out of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, which was hosting the "Big Bash 2" dance party. During the party, kids had scuffled with event security, leading to a police call, an early end to the party, and an exodus of riled-up kids. As a...

    08/29/2011 8:31:19 AM PDT · by DeaconBenjamin · 6 replies
    In July, the employment-population ratio for youth—the proportion of the 16- to 24-year old civilian noninstitutional population that was employed—was 48.8 percent, a record low for the series, though only marginally lower than in July 2010. (The month of July typically is the summertime peak in youth employment.) The employment-population ratios were little changed in July from a year earlier for all major demographic groups—men (50.2 percent), women (47.3 percent), whites (52.3 percent), blacks (34.6 percent), Asians (40.5 percent), and Hispanics (42.9 percent). In July 2011, 18.6 million 16- to 24-year-olds were employed, about the same as last year. This...

    HARRISBURG, Pa.—Foreign students who walked off their jobs in protest this week at a plant that serves The Hershey Co. may soon be getting a free trip to see some of the United States' cultural and historical landmarks. Rick Anaya, chief executive of the nonprofit that helped bring the students to the U.S., said Friday that the plan emerged after a two-hour conference call with representatives of the other companies involved in their employment. The students began a strike Wednesday, saying their work was so strenuous and low-paying they've been unable to see much of the country.

    WEST ALLIS, Wis.—West Allis police say the ongoing investigations into 11 violent incidents on the opening night of the Wisconsin State Fair suggest race did play a role.

On opening night of the fair last week, 31 people were arrested and at least 11 people were hurt. The West Allis Police Department is handling some of those cases. The department said Tuesday that its officers arrested seven people in different incidents around the fairgrounds...

    Community leaders in Birmingham are working all-out to calm intense anger in the city's British Asian community over the deaths of three young men who were rammed by a carload of suspected looters. West Midlands police arrested a man near the scene and recovered a vehicle, which forensics experts are examining. They later launched a murder inquiry. Groups of residents in Winson Green, the inner-city area where the men were killed as they tried to protect local businesses in the early hours of Wednesday, openly warned of inter-communal violence if the murder inquiry fails to produce rapid results. Their anger...
