Immigrant youth hobby: throwing in windows

The Chassé neighbourhood in Amsterdam - West, is terrorised by immigrant youth. In several areas of Amsterdam people are driven out of their neighbourhoods by violent acts of immigrant youth. A year ago the Volkskrant published a story of a Dutch couple in the Diamant neighbourhood. They were driven out of their neighbourhood by Morroccan youth, in the course of the series of articles.

Now there is a similar thing underway in the Chassé neigbourhood. A window of snackbar "Raphael" on the corner of the Van Kinsbergenstraat and the Van Speijkstraat, was broken last Friday night for the 33rd time in less than 2 years. That is once every 3 to 4 weeks. Townhall has now promised to pay for all windows broken. Insurance refuse the snackbar owner further coverage.
