Skip to comments.Sweden: The Violence Is "Extremely Serious"
Posted on 09/09/2020 5:47:09 AM PDT by blam
Things in Sweden have now deteriorated to such a degree that on August 29, the Swedish police published a statement titled "The trends in violence are extremely serious." It said:
"Recently, there have been serious incidents and serious acts of violence linked to criminal networks, in which several people have been murdered and others seriously injured...
"In Stockholm, two people were murdered in the past week, and in Gothenburg, criminal groups have tried to demonstrate power by controlling vehicles entering certain districts. Earlier in August, an innocent 12-year-old girl was murdered... [during a gang incident], and in other parts of the country there are conflicts between various criminal networks and other ruthless crime, as well. On Friday night, a violent riot also occurred in Malmö where several police officers were injured..."
Sweden's National Police Chief, Anders Thornberg, made what sounded like a plea for help from the rest of society: "Swedish police are in a tough operational situation. It is now a matter of society joining forces behind the police," he said.
"We will continue to fight organized crime with all the tools we have available. Other good forces in society, everything from municipal officials and civil society to law enforcement agencies and not least the general public, also need to focus on facing the current situation. The police must ensure that the criminals are arrested and can be prosecuted. The criminals need to disappear from our streets and squares so that no more ruthless crimes are committed...
"The everyday life many police officers face when they go to work right now is worrying and very tiring. We work intensively, around the clock, despite this, the severe violence continues. The police are there 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Hmmm... “criminal groups”? Is there any other defining characteristic of these groups worth noting?
Somehow I don’t picture Benny and Bjorn from ABBA running around setting cars on fire and throwing grenades at police...
“”Recently, there have been serious incidents and serious acts of violence linked to criminal networks, in which several people have been murdered and others seriously injured...”
Pikers. Sounds like last weekend in Chicago.
The Swedes invited them in.
Now, enjoy !
“Allahu Akbar” being shouted. Must be those dangerous Christians again. /s
Invite some more of those poor Muslims invaders...I mean migrants into your country. All they really want is to create a global CalipHATE.
“Self-defense with firearms, as well as carry, is generally prohibited. Carry permits can be issued by the police under very special circumstances like an immediate and proven life threat. Transportation of unloaded firearms is allowed to and from approved shooting ranges or hunting grounds.”
Apparently...hunting is approved of in Sweden. Self-defense, not so much.
50 years ago Sweden was a bucolic heaven on Earth. They were the first Europeans to embrace and actively pursue a diverse society through immigration. Sweden is dead.
Well, they know where the problems lie. It remains to be seen what can be done.
After all, we have had zero luck here.
More like last Wednesday morning between 9:00 and 9:30 AM in Chicago...
....”The criminals need to disappear from our streets and squares so that no more ruthless crimes are committed...”
Oh, brother....give me a break.... or as our (God forbid!!) possibly next president would say, “C’mon, man....!”
You people embraced diversity so well, and now look what it has gotten you.... Sweden will never be the same, having allowed into the country all kinds of refugees [sic] from some of the most sh*thole countries in the world....live with it.....
They wanted to be "the superpower of human rights."
They wanted to virtue-signal their way to the ultimate heights of moral superiority.
Welcome to the multicultural paradise you have pursued for decades, Sweden.
Enjoy the bitter fruit smoothie.
Wait, what? But I thought Sweden was a socialist utopia!!!
I was there not long ago. Many things have changed dramatically and tragically in this amazing country since the open-door immigration policies were enacted:
- For the first time, young girls are not safe in the streets
- New national education policies and ad campaigns to keep men from raping women
- A very sad explosion in burglaries and petty theft.
There is more, but one man whose family was Swedish from time immemorial told me that this was the first time people ever really needed to lock their doors.
“Now I must install burglar alarms even on my car.”
This is totally contrary to the Swedish idea of “All Man’s Land,” which is their philosophy of sharing and respecting each other’s property.
To bad the virus did not kill off the gangs.
Gee, if only there was some common aspect with these gangs, it would be easier to identify them
Every city dweller knows the areas of town to avoid. We don’t have one in our small town so I tried to drill it into my childrens’ heads with little success. But Swedes aren’t allowed to believe in “no go” zones. They can’t talk about it and they can’t admit to avoiding them. They can’t warn their children about them. So their girls signal their virtue and end up as a sex slave in a brothel.
Meanwhile the gangs are being armed by the former Yugoslavia.
