The side-effect of socialism and high unemployment among the youth is the rising crime rate in Europe involving youths under 25 for monetary gain. A 72 year-old retired boxer beat-up a youth with a knife who entered his home. Hiring police has been rising, but at the same time there are those who are arguing it was the removal of borders in Europe that fueled criminal operations. The theory is that police are confined to the locality whereas the criminals are not. So the unemployed youth in the south move north to plunder. Ironically, instead of looking at the high taxes destroying job creation, they want a FBI of Europe and border controls restored. They always see this as they need more power to correct the trend rather than the possibility that they are causing the trend.
