Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan wants the city’s capability to evict extreme neighborhood bullies to extend to those who own their own homes.
Rotterdam's plans for a Container Town where the city's asocial families will be placed is meant to serve as a harmless solution to a nuisance problem. According to experts, however, such 'aso-villages' won't solve anything.
The city of Rotterdam is planning to construct an area outside the city in which asocial families will be placed in twenty containers. Leader of Leefbaar Rotterdam, Joost Eerdmans, says that families who are "too intelligent for the psychiatric clinic, not criminal enough for jail, but too dangerous for the neighborhood" will be made to live in this Container Town.
