Do Nothing. Maybe They'll Go Away

Parking Tickets Issued on Wrecks while Stockholm Burns
But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. "Our ambition is really to do as little as possible," Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.

"We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait," elaborated Lars Byström, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department. "If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us."
What you will not find in this article is that the rioters are Muslim - just a little (apparently unimportant) fact. Only it is important and it is not a localized problem and it will not go away by ignoring it.
