Sweden: Bus and Subway Protest Against Violence

Of course, no mentioning of why Sweden suddenly during the past generation has experienced this steep increase in violence, from schools to the streets:

Bus and Subway Protest Against Violence

All public transportation in Sweden is coming to a halt for 2 minutes at noon Friday. The stop is a protest against increased violence and threats against bus drivers, ticket-takers, and other personnel. It is a joint action by both employers and unions. Bus drivers have called for a change in the system so that they will no longer have to handle money, and for the installation of security cameras to identify trouble-makers.
