   Amsterdam to create "Scum Villages" where nuisance neighbors, anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and housed in caravans or containers with minimal services under constant police supervision. Or as they're known in the US: Trailer parks

Yeah, let's put all the undesireables into one place. It'll be easier to keep an eye on them that way. Nothing can go wrong.

There are small pockets of good areas, you just have to pay a lot to live there. I work in Hunt Valley but live all the way out in Frederick.

Great idea. I'm sure there will be warnings before they're finally sent there, so there's no-one to blame but themselves if it does happen.

First they came for the bad neighbors, and I said nothing because I hate living near bad neighbors and the scumbags get what they deserve, and I was happy.

So unless everybody flies away on their own spaceship into the sunset; I don't think this little social experiment is going to work too well.

What if that becomes the area with the better restaurants, clubs and artists? I'd imagine it might backfire into a type of NYC where service caters to these types of people very well.

I read the article, but I haven't had my coffee yet, so I'm a bit confused. Are they talking about all undesirable neighbors, or just people who are in public housing already? The former is kind of creepy, but the latter totally make sense. If you want a free house you gotta behave, or you get a crappy free house.

/still socialist

This will turn Amsterdam into a ghost town. It would be cheaper to move the minority good folk out and erect a fence around it.

Not de jure, because it's only supposed to be temporary: it's more like a kind of really low-security prison. But we'll see how long "temporary" lasts when put to the tests; I suspect this thing will wind up as a de facto ghetto soon enough.

Personally, I'm horrified by this. Being a jerk should not be a crime.

Saw the pic of Wilders. Thought it was an example of the kind of people they want to put in the villages.
