Dutch Mayor Comments on Unruly Moroccan Youth

November 14, 2010

The mayor of Dutch town Gouda commented this week that ending trouble caused by Dutch Moroccan children and teenagers may take “at least another generation”. He made the comments during a town council discussion over the unrest caused by a persistent group of Dutch Moroccan youths between the ages of 8 and 15 in the Oosterwei neighborhood. Reports cite a local teacher who blames the unrest on both parents and a ‘culture’ which encourages spoiling young sons.
