I don't know how they could, as they are generally very well integrated.

You've mentioned Bosnians/Balkans many times responsible for crime/homicide and what not, family clans and gangs. It's the same with Chechens in Russia – an apartment building gets blown up, an opposition leader killed, the culprits are always the Chechens.

When it comes to the situation of Chechens, it could also be the result of tensions in the region, something that is not nearly as present in Scandinavian countries.

I think its bark is worse than the bite. Serbians are good people, there are some in New York. They commit very little crime

Yes, but Bosnians and Serbians are generally pretty chill, these countries have good moral systems and the people are great. I would love for someone to pull up the statistics, cause I bet the crime rates for these groups are minimal

This is a difference, Chechens in general are a crazy group that wants independence. Bosnians and Serbians and Croatians just come to different countries for a better life and in search of opportunities

Koreans are relatively chill people, but in Japan even though their 1% of the population they make up roughly 30% of Yakuza.

That is a high percentage of Korean people in gangs, that's like 8% or 1/12 Korean man in Japan being a Yakuza gang member...

Wasn't it also Serbians that did this- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR4coIb8FRA?
That doesn't look very peaceful. You can't say Serbians are peaceful or violent, as anyone can be violent no matter what ethnicity they are.
