10/03/2016 – UPPSALA, Sweden – No candy bars, so migrant torched home
A 16 year old Afghan migrant to Sweden has been sentenced to juvenile detention after he burned down his migrant accommodation, which had dozens of other minors and government staff in at the time. The young man had told staff there if they didn’t buy him candy, he’d “destroy everything”, yet despite the threat was still allowed to carry a cigarette lighter, reports Aftonbladet. Days later, he building was razed to the ground.
The court heard how the boy had been extremely violent toward staff, throwing plant pots at them and attempting to extort money. It is reported that before he set the fire, the migrant also cut the cables to the smoke detector, and the building was completely destroyed.
