V4 Report: Sweden 🇸🇪 and life in the EU Core: Hand Grenades and Gang Violence Rattle Sweden’s Middle Class. Hand grenades? How progressive.
** Wow! Even the ultra-liberal New York Times recognizes the mayhem in Sweden as neighborhoods categorized by the police as “marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity” are rising. These are called “no-go zones”.
*** Last year, President Trump weighed in on the issue, saying that after taking in “large numbers” of immigrants, Sweden was “having problems like they never thought possible.”
– Weapons from a faraway, long-ago war regions are flowing into immigrant neighborhoods here, puncturing Swedes’ sense of confidence and security. Crime and immigration are certain to be key issues in September’s general election, alongside the traditional debates over education and health care.
– Part of the reason is that Sweden’s gang violence, long contained within low-income suburbs, has begun to spill out. In large cities, hospitals report “armed confrontations” in emergency rooms, and school administrators say threats and weapons have become commonplace.
Varby Gard has produced a street gang, the Varby Gard Network, which the police have been monitoring for two years. It is led by a Tunisian man and populated by first- and second-generation immigrants from Finland, the Balkans and Africa, said Lars Broms, a detective who is investigating Mr. Zuniga’s death. Intent on protecting its monopoly on the local drug trade, it is fluid and loosely organized, but like other suburban gangs in Sweden, it is developing quickly, he said.
“Give them 20 years, and we’ll have the same as in L.A.,” Mr. Broms said.
– Sweden’s conservative party blames the government’s liberal immigration policy for the rising crime, and will thrust the issue to the fore in the fall campaign.
Last year, Peter Springare, 61, a veteran police officer in Orebro, published a Facebook post saying violent crimes he was investigating were committed by immigrants from “Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown country, unknown country, Sweden.”
Mr. Springare has since been investigated twice by state prosecutors, once for inciting so-called “racial hatred”, though neither resulted in charges. How is that for government intimidation in an effort to silence others? No wonder EU Minister Vera Jourova and others wish to regulate the internet to silence their critics on migration. This is a slippery slope indeed, but is quite typical of the warped mentality of Brussels.
– Hand grenades were, until last year, classified as “flammable products” rather than weapons, so sentences for detonating them were mild. The police are struggling to gather information in immigrant neighborhoods, and clearance rates for gun homicide cases have fallen steadily since the 1990s.
“We have lost the trust from the people who lived and worked in this area,” said Gunnar Appelgren, a police superintendent and specialist in gang violence.
Mr. Appelgren, from the office of Stockholm’s Police Headquarters, has watched the trend apprehensively, calling it an arms race among gangs.
“I think we’re going to see, if we don’t stop it, more drive-by shootings with Kalashnikovs and hand grenades,” he said. “They throw rocks and bottles at our cars, and they trick us in an ambush. When will it happen that they ambush us with Kalashnikovs? It’s coming.”
**** Once flooded, like Sweden, it may be too late to reverse the damage. However, like elsewhere across Europe, the pro-migration government of Sweden may be punished for their utter negligent and reckless decisions.
Let’s hope so. Europe needs to move-on from the failed multicult “EU Project” of Brussels.
The EU Core of Berlin and Paris is the pathway to self-destruction. Many are starting to realize that Europe needs to implement the “V4 model” regarding migration. It is the only way…..and it is coming soon.
