re: Europe: Immigration and Street Crime (Robert McCabe, France) (John Eipper, USA, 11/17/09 6:11 am)

Robert McCabe responds to Cameron Sawyer's post of 16 November: I've long wondered whether a society's safety quotient is somehow related to immigration factors. In other words, does a continuing flood of immigrants somehow lower the levels of street safety? More so, in fact, than local politics? I have no figures on this and would not know where to find them. But broadly speaking here in France street crime seems regularly blamed on Arab and Black African immigrants. In Britain, in the Low Countries and Scandinavia it's pretty much the same. In Germany, the Turks seem to have escaped their postwar status as blamables and have been replaced by Eastern Europeans (notably Romanians). In the US, it's the Hispanics (less and less) and the Blacks (as ever) that draw blame for high street crime levels. But in Asia, I've felt no problems in Japan or China, or Vietnam and Indonesia for that matter. The rest of Southeast Asia is pretty street-safe. And nowhere out there is there any great wave of immigration. On balance, it would seem that societies untroubled by change are street-safer than those with waves of immigration. Or have I been somehow channeling Lou Dobbs? In our quiet little corner of Western Paris, for instance, a street riot erupted Saturday over a nutball scheme to give money away! The word, spread by Internet, draw thousands of people from the slums to the supposed distribution point near us and astonished the local folks who had no idea what was happening. JE comments: No one turns down free money! I saw this item on the news over the weekend. It says the rioters overturned cars and "hurled missiles." What do they mean by that--rocks? http://sg.news.yahoo.com/afp/20091115/tts-france-violence-internet-509a08e.html David Gress has written on immigration and street crime in Denmark. His post is next in the queue.
