Crime Returns to Rotterdam Neighborhood

Street terror and armed robberies have returned to the Rotterdam Katendrecht neighborhood, with a new generation of criminals. A consistent effort by the Rotterdam municipality in the neighborhood had put an end ten months ago to a series of armed robberies, murders and burglaries. These crimes had been carried out by a gang of 30 youngsters, mainly from the Dutch Antilles. Then preventive frisking was introduced, many weapons and drugs were found and arrests were made. The former alderman for security of the right wing Leefbaar Rotterdam party has proposed sterilizing all Antillean mothers who cannot control their children.
