Rural Swedes Having To Make ‘Home-Made Police Cruisers’, Start Citizen Patrols

Rural Swedes Having To Make ‘Home-Made Police Cruisers’, Start Citizen Patrols
July 10, 2017 Admin


Interesting article from Sweden today.

It comes courtesy of the good folks at Free Times.

Here is the story:

Sweden’s police are on their knees, and in Dalsland only money is available for a single police car – throughout the province, Expressen writes . A police inspector feels that politicians do not think people in rural areas are equally worthwhile.

Dalsland is located in Götaland in western Sweden. In total, more than 50,000 people live in the entire landscape.

But there are hardly any police officers. Now, the entire Dalsland, a geographic area about the size of Greater Stockholm, is guarded by a single police image.

In several of Dalsland’s municipalities, there are more employees at Systembolaget than at the police, according to Expressen.

– The depopulation of police in rural areas is catastrophic. We need to get back neighboring politicians here in Dalsland, because today it’s largely empty, “said 70-year-old Göte Johansson, who himself was forced to stop a burglar who was about to break into a weapon cabinet in a villa, to Expressen.

The police themselves also warn that they have so few staff that they are forced to “ignore crimes” in the landscape.

According to police inspector Monica Lindberg, police failure in Dalsland feels that human life in rural and sparsely populated areas is not as valuable.

It has even gone so far that the Dalmatians build their own emergency vehicles, with special signs on the ceiling and juice mixers, in order to pull out and solve the crimes themselves.

This drawdown in police might be somewhat understandable if the Swedish government had let such rural areas be, and they were no different than in decades past. However, as we have talked about before, this is note the case, as in reality the government has purposefully spread the millions of imported Muslim immigrants they brought in to every corner of the country, including small towns and villages.

The last paragraph is particularly interesting.

It very much reminds me of the book Travels In Siberia by Ian Frazier.

Frazier is an American writer who traveled all over Russia in the 1990’s right after the Soviet Union had fallen.

The book is gigantic, and goes over all his experiences there and the people he meets and what life was like for them during that time when the Russian economy was in such shambles.

There were a number of dynamics that were memorable in that regard. One was the huge number of PhD’s and scientists he met who were essentially working totally blue collar or ‘entry level’ jobs, since the economy no longer needed all the advanced knowledge they possessed. travels in siberiaMany even worked at ‘jobs’ without pay, keeping the local museum going or making sure the local dam didn’t fall apart and collapse.

There was also the ‘Russian food’ one constantly heard about- all individual items eaten cold off a plate, rather than fancy meals cooked from a bunch of ingredients. The relevance of this was that a huge portion of the food eaten was from people’s gardens, and as a result it was much more natural to just eat everything cold and individually (stuff like cherry tomatoes, si cucumber, nuts, berries, meat, etc). Whereas in the West we are used to fancy meals or pre-cooked ‘food in a box’, the anarchy of early 90’s Russia actually catalyzed in the Russian citizens a far healthier diet.

But what was most memorable in Frazier’s book was the civilian ‘Emergency Services’ clubs.

I forget their exact name in the book but they were essentially a civilian version of the police, EMT’s, firefighters, and search and rescue- all rolled into one. They organized themselves into semi-official clubs with what seemed like strict admission guidelines, and for all intents and purposes in many areas filled the void left the lack of police and other first responders. This was particularly the case in the rural areas, where such emergencies were more common (folks whose vehicles might fall through the ice, folks who got lost, or whose cars broke down way out in the middle of nowhere, and worse things).

It was fascinating in that we here in America rely on the government for all those things, but in Russia at that time they had to rely on each other for such help, and without those men who specifically volunteered to do this, everyone would be totally out of luck.

More Parallels

Dmitry Orlov also wrote about this same period back in 2011, in his book Reinventing Collapse.

Reinventing Collapse talks about Orlov’s experience in Russia in the first days after the Soviet Union’s collapse as well. Reinventing Collapse

His point in writing the book was that- in his opinion- the United States was entering a prolonged breakdown much like the one Russia suffered. His writing therefore focuses on what the experience of such a collapse is like, and how one can best prepare for the possibility, survive it, and even thrive as a result of it.

The book garnered a lot of interest among the Glenn Beck/prepper/goldbug set who were so gung-ho about such things at that time, yet interestingly from the point at which Orlov wrote it the American economy has gone up dramatically.

Sweden and much of Western Europe, on the other hand, seems to be in a more and more precarious situation, and I think these homemade police cars are another canary in the proverbial coal mine (or Mosque, as the case may be).


Not only do we see the above info from Sweden today (which is at least somewhat hopeful), we also see an interesting poll.

The results suggest the possibility that the Swedes may be waking up a bit, but who knows…

Here it is:

The number of Swedes wishing to receive fewer asylum seekers is increasing. It shows a new Sifo survey published in SvD. At the same time, only 13 percent want to receive more.

The proportion that wants Sweden to receive fewer asylum seekers has risen from 44 percent to 52 percent since October last year.

27 percent want the reception to remain at the existing level and as many, 27 percent, are doubtful or do not know.

But only 13 percent want Sweden to receive more asylum seekers, which in the survey are called “refugees”.

Unfortunately for the Swedes it may be too late for such reductions to have any effect. As we have argued, the ‘Sweden Equation’ renders the nation’s future pretty well decided at this point, and homemade police cars may be a good summation of what it will look like.

Collapse can lead to rebirth though, and Russia is one nation that looks better off for having gone through it. Let’s hope the same will eventually be able to be said for Sweden.

They are very interesting and I would encourage you to check them out if you haven’t!

    “Rural Swedes having to start citizen patrols”.

    Hmm….. interesting…….. there is definitely opportunity for us there…… 🙂

    I can picture a few hardline-Preservationist Swedes cruising around in a pickup truck, looking for Muslims to “do over”. A Swedish version of the Taliban, if you like, except that *this* version would only thump Muslims.

    The Taliban are damned-near impossible to get rid of, and that can be a useful lesson for us too. They’re not the only ones who can engage in fourth-generation warfare.

    The key for the “Swedish heavies” would be not getting caught (and the chances of that are dropping precipitously). Alternatively, they could say to the “real” police – “leave things to us to sort out – or ELSE…..”
    Let’s face it – the Muslims know how effective intimidation can be, and we could learn a lot from their use of it.

    I daresay that there are more than a few Swedish police who would *love* to join a group of heavies that *fights back*.

    The Citizens On Patrol had best get their tactical awareness up to a high level ASAP. MENA insurgents are bringing guerilla warfare tools and techniques to Europe:

      Interesting…. I left AnonCon a comment about the fact that if its this bad now, just think what it will be like once the economic music stops and the debt fueled prosperity comes to an end…

      Its been interesting watching Macron thus far. Any interesting observations from your vantage point?

    Is it possible that even his short exposure to The Don at the G20 was enough to jolt his amygdala onto a new track? It would seem unlikely, and yet he’s using phrases that could have come from Madame LePen’s basic campaign speech. Saying that Africa’s problems are “civilizational” and that “having 7 or 8 children” leads to overpopulation and impoverishment, are examples of RealTalk that I never would have thought he could even conceive, much less utter. Whether any of this new-found realism leads to concrete policy changes remains to be seen, but this public break from his globalist conditioning is shocking to me.


    (Bastille Day is coming right up, and maybe he got the heebie-jeebies (pun intended) from contemplating the fate of prior French aristocrats.) 🙂
