A group of thirty or so rambunctious “Swedish” young people engaged in some midnight pranks in southern Stockholm last weekend. Late Saturday night and early Sunday morning these mischievous culturally enriched “youths” chased the police off their turf, throwing stones, fireworks, and Molotov cocktails, and also torching a few cars.
Oh, well — boys will be boys, you know.
