Not a lot of commentary on this one but I thought it too timely and important not to reprint.
The mass immigrant invasion and ever-increasing Muslim radicalization among the invader population has pushed the Swedish police and legal system to the point of collapse, a senior inspector in Stockholm has announced.
According to the police, they are regularly attacked with hand grenades and there are entire regions of cities which are “police no-go” areas where “foreign gangs” engage in violent shoot-outs.
Writing in a column in the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper, Police Inspector Lars Alvarsjö said that the “legal system is threatened with collapse” because of shortfalls in manpower and “mediocre” sentencing of the nonwhite criminal gangs.
“Sweden’s ability to fight crime has deteriorated markedly,” Inspector Alvarsjö said.
Although the number of police officers has increased to about 20,000, the sentencing rate and punishment levels for offenders is “fairly mediocre,” he said, adding that the problem lies in the “massive” number of crimes with which the police are confronted.
“Police barely investigate crimes such as burglary anymore,” Inspector Alvarsjö continued.
This is because, “during the past six months, a series of events affected the police’s ability to fulfill its mission.”
He goes on to name these “events”: the “refugee crisis and the threat of terrorism.”
“A very large number of police officials have been assigned to carry out security tasks and immigration controls,” he continued. For example, police in Stockholm have been commanded to serve in southern Sweden on border controls and refugee reception.
“But the number of new arrivals and crime trends in general makes the police unable to cope with current resources,” he said, before going into the details of the nonwhite crime plague which is literally destroying Sweden’s cities.
“Foreign criminal groups have now effectively become immune to punishment. Prosecutors cannot get ahead of the large workload which these groups cause.”
Inspector Alvarsjö wrote that rather than detain these criminals, most courts give them non-custodial sentences, probation, or fines “to the point of absurdity. Punishment for this group of offenders has become totally ineffective,” he said.
As a result, he said, the number of persons serving prison time in Sweden is now at the lowest point in ten years, despite the massive escalation in criminal acts.
“In a lot of suburbs, lawlessness ensues where criminal gangs have taken over and determine the rules of the game,” Inspector Alvarsjö said. One unit is sent in to investigate a case, while the second is there to prevent the first unit’s patrol car from being attacked.
“Now it is a normal, everyday event for police officers in these areas to be confronted with stone-throwing, Molotov cocktails, threats, and other violence.
“Hand grenades are also thrown at police vehicles. Fire and ambulance personnel are exposed to attacks during missions in these areas.
“Gang-related conflicts have repeatedly resulted in regular gunfights in the streets without regard for innocent passersby,” Inspector Alvarsjö said.
A follow-up report in the Kristeligt Dagblad went into a detailed breakdown of Inspector Alvarsjö’s article.
Titled “Refugee, criminal gangs and religious extremism presses the Swedish police,” the article quoted a report from the police national operations department which listed fifty-three areas identified as being “ravaged by criminal gangs and religious extremism, where paramedics dare not go without wearing bulletproof vests.”
“Particularly affected are neighborhoods such as Tensta, Rinkeby, and Husby in Stockholm; and Angered, Bergsjön and Hammarkullen in Gothenburg, where the recruitment of Muslim terrorists is a major problem,” the Kristeligt Dagblad said.
The paper went on to interview Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism and radicalization researcher at the Swedish National Defense College, who said that he believed the “situation is a disaster.”
“Extremists dominate the worst areas while the Swedes look on apathetically,” Ranstorp said.
“The problem goes back decades and affects immigrant heavy neighborhoods where unemployment is high and educational attainment poor, and where crime and radicalization is rampant,” he continued.
Ranstorp compared the attitude of the Swedish public to the police’s problems to their attitude to immigration and asylum. “It was only when Sweden was receiving 2,000 asylum seekers every day, that the politicians closed the borders.
“Warnings are not enough. There has to be a total collapse of the police before anything will change. We are in a disastrous situation, where there is a widening gap between the immigrants in the suburbs and the rest of society.”
