Ugh, what a lack of insight.
You think there is much "free choice" behind how immigrants or refugees end up where they end up? I can assure you that those who come here by their
own free will, as a part of some future planning or career or whatever, will not
set cars, houses and schools on fire .
I advice you, with all sincere friendliness, to read a book called "Illegal Traveller" by Khosravi. It might just provide you with enough information
not to post what I quoted above in the future.
As for the suburbs themselves- most European nations brought this on themselves;
after WWII nations sought to rebuild their industries and economies. What was needed was labour and loads of it, more than the nations themselves
So, they built these projects where the "guest" workers could live and do their thing (multi culturalism) and when the work was "done", they where
expected to go home as if it was part of some unwritten deal.
Of course, they did not. Instead, they invited relatives and friends to come join them in their new lives. At least to me, that is a very natural
move; I'm sure I would have done the same.
Well, time goes by and the age of industry is over (outsourced to China for example). The immigrants are stuck in their suburbs since only the
profiteers for their labour (the white upper-middle class) are allowed to the city centres. Tough luck.
Also, letting the guest workers go about their daily cultural business made them even more isloated.
Just like many other social problems, it was screwed up to begin with.

Let me clarify:
Man takes person hostage in suburb. Man is armed.
Police arrive, together with ambulance as a precaution.
Man attacks police- police shoots the man dead.
Paramedics see the man is wacked and leave the scene without him.
Several hours later, the coroner arrives and takes the body away.
Now, what goes wrong here is that the police informs the public that the man is declared dead in the hospital a good 3 hours before the coroner takes
the body away.
Bystanders, who keep and eye on the media outlet and who has seen the paramedics leave the scene without any wounded person, can't make the connection
(understandable) and assumes that the man was allowed to die before the police after being shot (not understandable imo). Of course, the police (and
the media responsible for printing the miscommunication) comes forward and explaines the situation but it is too late. Now, they are just "lying about
it" for whatever reason is good enough for a riot...
All that is supposed to be the spark that set the suburb on fire. Pretty lame, huh? People are just looking for a reason. I even heard this young lady
(she was from some local organization) say on the radio that she was upset with the police "killing one of our neighbours", totally neglecting that
the man was an armed and dangerous psycho who had taken someone hostage!
People. Are. So. God. Damn. Lame!
