Posted on 01/18/2020 11:11:50 AM PST by rktman
Swedish National Police Commissioner Anders Thornberg has admitted that despite large numbers of weapons seizures and full prisons, the rate of shootings in Sweden remains high.
Thornberg, who was also formerly chief of the Swedish Security Service (Sapo), said that police must get better at their work to tackle the problem of gang violence, claiming that children as young as eight were running drugs and helping criminal gangs in the multicultural city of Malmo, broadcaster YLE reports.

Those dadgum Lutherans are a menace!
The Venn Diagram of this shows the answer is NOT ENUF in prison yet!
We’re pretty smart here.
If we focus our minds on this problem for several days, I think we can find the reason for this :)
Yeah. It’s the fault of the police. The police were so much better 20 years ago.
Is this a recent phenomenon? Any similarities in the vast majority of perps?

What? Liberal policies like Democrat policies don’t work?
I think their use of the term “multicultural” just might be a clue. I’ll keep on digging...
I’ll bet the “multicultural” residents consider their actions insurgency not criminal, but of course conservatives believing in the authority of the Mainstream can’t wrap their heads about it.
I’m on it too.
I’ll stay awake for days if I have to!
Hmm...before invasion...very little crime...afterwords not enough prisons....
This is gonna be a tough one.
In years past, we’ve had to deal with smug assertions of superiority by citizens and admirers of European countries — particularly Scandinavian countries — when it comes to violent crime. My response has always been to refer to demographics. For instance, the violent crime rate among Norwegian-Americans was not much different than in Norway.
Now that these countries are becoming less demographically homogeneous, their violent crime rates are rising.
I don’t believe this to be an indication of racial superiority, but rather of cultural superiority.
This is unexpected. I wonder what has changed over the past few years.
So, prisons full and still more shootings in Sweden?
Simple answer is build more prisons or deport any foreign nationals incarcerated to make room.
Of course the best solution is the one which guarantees no recidivism.
Nah. Stricter gun laws. That ALWAYS works. Or just make them illegal. That works too. /$
Prisons are full.
Hmmm...I can’t think of any solution to that problem. Nope. Can you?

Texas Refugee Ban Hits Wall With Court Blocking Trump PolicyHurrah! to Governor Abbott. Boo, hiss to the federal judge in Maryland.

A plan by Texas to stop taking in foreign refugees this year was thrown into doubt by a court order that blocks the Trump administration from letting states opt out of refugee resettlement programs.
Texas became the first state to officially stop accepting refugees on Jan. 10, when Republican Governor Greg Abbott announced he wouldnt grant written consent for the Lone Star state to participate in resettlement programs, exercising a veto power conferred on states in a policy President Donald Trump announced in September.
A federal judge in Maryland on Wednesday (Jan 15, 2020) temporarily blocked the presidents executive order from taking effect. The ruling was in response to a legal challenge from religious organizations and charities that oversee resettlement programs in the U.S. for tens of thousands of people fleeing war, persecution and natural disasters in their countries.
Also, a big boo, hiss to our own Idaho Governor Little. Lots of people here are very unhappy about his decision.
County, governor support refugee resettlement in Idaho
December 31, 2019
Idaho became the latest state to signal its willingness to continue accepting refugees for resettlement despite a presidential order giving state and local governments the ability to refuse them.
Twin Falls County commissioners unanimously approved accepting refugees after hearing testimony from community members, business owners and church leaders in support of the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center.
Republican Gov. Brad Little joined 30 other governors nationwide who have agreed to accept refugees, officials said.
Well slap me upside the head! I hadn’t thought about emptying the prisons!
Silly me...I thought maybe they should build MORE prisons.
