Welcome To IKEA Jail

"First there was an effort to clean up the red-light district in Amsterdam. Then came new laws regulating who could frequent "coffee shops" in the city and elsewhere in Holland for a joint. Now, the Dutch capital is introducing a plan to punish bad behavior by sending chronic neighborhood bullies and vandals out of the city center for a punitive stay in uncomfortable housing containers."

Did the Dutch just invent trailer parks?

Seems like an elaborate mashup of Seasons 2 and 3 of The Wire.

As long as it includes socialized healthcare and legally-mandated minimum of 4 weeks of vacation, count me in!

A lot of people (technically "students") in the Netherlands already live in shipping containers.
