Like Denmark, which last week started using soldiers to free up the overburdened police force, Sweden now is considering doing the same in the city of Malmö, which has been plagued with soaring Muslim migrant gang violence and shootings.
Sputnik News (h/t Dallas B) Malmö, which is Sweden’s third largest metropolitan area, has often been hailed as the Nordic country’s most “multicultural” cities, with only half of the population being ethnic Swedes.
But when the culture is African and Islamic, rape and violence crimes increase so much, local police no longer can keep its citizens safe.
During the eight months of 2017 alone, 102 shooting incidents have occurred in Malmö, claiming six lives and leaving 35 wounded. The availability of cheap firearms remains a major problem, as young criminals have no difficulty obtaining a weapon, the local newspaper Skånska Dagbladet reported in late September.
Earlier this year, the Malmö police admitted to being overburdened and suffering from a severe lack of competent personnel. To cope with the rise of lethal violence, Malmö had to “borrow” policemen from other regions.
At present, about 60 extra policemen and civilian investigators “on the loan” from other cities are reported to be working in Malmö, down from 150 earlier this year, SVT reported.
Meanwhile, the bulk of crimes reported in Malmö has grown to a level called “unacceptably high,” whereas the percentage of crimes solved across Sweden keeps plummeting for lack of resources. Recently, only eight percent of investigated rapes were reported to be solved.
At the same time, the police force across the country keeps shrinking, as more officers resign in protest, facing low wages, demanding routines and occupational hazards. In 2017 alone, Sweden lost 609 policemen, Swedish Radio reported. (Yet they don’t report that the resignations are directly related to the surge in crime and violence coming from the Muslim migrant community)
