It sounds like the police were taking the side of the Muslim rioters, and were trying to run interference for them.
“The police appear to have focused all their resources on stopping the Swedes”
Why am I not surprised? It won’t be long before there’s a Golden Dawn in Sweden too, if the police and others continue to treat the Muslims like an aristocracy, above all others.
Riots in Sweden. Who’da thought it?
...a motley crew of homeowners and concerned citizens, as well as neo-Nazi activists and football hooligans.
The enemy of my enemy - is my friend...
One is that those cops have families ~ some with children, maybe even a legal wife or two ~ there are no riots in their neighborhoods.
Swedes can FIX THAT PROBLEM
RE: Swedes grown tired of the polices inability to put an end to the unrest took to the streets Friday night to defend their neighborhoods.
Does Sweden have anything similar in their laws to our Second Amendment?
The reason is simple enough - and it’s the reason we will see the same official reaction here in the USA: rioting immigrants/minorities/underclasses offer a government many opportunities to expand its power, while vigilante citizens who take matters into their own hands pose a dire threat to a government’s power.
Swedes, your government is your main enemy. Apply the Solzhenitsyn Solution.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward. Alexandr Solzhenitsyn
A motley crew of neo-Nazi hooligans, eh?
That’s what you get called for defending your homes and your neighbors from rioting Muslim Yutes on the public dole.
Defend your family and your neighbors when the police won’t do it? How awful!
When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you, you know your nation is doomed.
A huge socialist government plus no 2nd Amendment = slavery.
The Free Sh*t Army is winning.
The next time this happens — and there WILL be a next time — the citizens would be wise to consider the police part of the problem, not part of the solution. Then, once the “vigilantes” have scattered their various enemies, they need to proceed to the police offices and demand that either these deadbeats start doing their jobs or they stop collecting public pay.
The police, however, rejected the accusations as unfounded.
Hmmm! Why does that sound familiar?
The Swiss finalized their no-wars policy of armed neutrality in 1815. Their decentralized citizen army was good enough to keep them out of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, World War I, and other European gang fights. In 1934, they addressed the looming threat of aerial bombing by starting a massive civil-defense effort. They maintained their citizen army and kept out of World War II, even while provoking Hitler by letting Jews hide their assets in secret Swiss bank accounts. Many Jews only escaped the Holocaust because they had their money where Nazi tax authorities couldnt get it.
Hitler was in fact very provoked by the Swiss. His generals even got as far as giving the invasion of Switzerland the name Operation Tannenbaum and drawing lines on maps for it. However, no matter how they drew the lines, they couldnt overcome the reality that there were no critical central targets for mechanized blitzkrieg to disrupt. Every house in Switzerland was a center of resistance. The Wehrmacht paratroopers couldnt beat a defense that covered every square centimeter of the country with accurate rifle fire, and they knew it.
We westerners need to understand that our governments are rapidly becoming our worst enemy.
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance”
There are times when vigilantes is exactly what the situation calls for.
I’ve said a few times....If this is what it takes, then this is what it takes.
