In recent years, a new phenomenon of “domination crime” has emerged across Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, referring to gross unprovoked violence with the intention to humiliate.
Sputnik News So-called “domination crimes” have been spreading across Scandinavia. The term refers to gross, unprovoked violence with the intention to humiliate, in particular committed by immigrants against locals.
In December, 2019, a video of a Muslim immigrant gang humiliating a Swedish boy by beating him and urinating on him, published by the news outlet Samhällsnytt, has sparked strong reactions in the Scandinavian nation.
In the video, at least two perpetrators are seen and heard hitting and kicking the boy, while calling him names such as “bastard” and “motherf*cker”, and forcing him to open his mouth. It is yet unclear when and where the abuse took place, but Samhällsnytt alleged it occurred in Stockholm.
Tweet: “Immigrant gang abuses and urinates on a Swedish boy”
The case appeared to resonate with the Swedish public, triggering massive online outbursts of indignation.
“’Reverse racism does not exist’. Well it really doesn’t. There is only racism. Has it ever happened in Swedish history that a bunch of Swedes abused and pissed on an immigrant while filming it? No. Expel these animals. They have nothing to do in Sweden”, writer Luai Ahmed tweeted.
“I’m boiling with rage. I suffer so immensely with the Swedish boy in the clip. Do you politicians even understand what you have done? These damn lowlifes must get out of this country. Age does not matter. They are going out!” journalist Mira Aksoy tweeted.
“Had the roles been reversed, it would have been written in the media for weeks, with extra news coverage… [Prime Minister] Löfven would have been complaining about racism, demonstrations would have been held, etc”, another Swede reacted.
“Cultural enrichment. These doctors, engineers and taxpayers only share their culture, you understand. He should be grateful for this because he as a Swede has no culture whatsoever and would never manage without their indispensable help in society. Understand that!” another one scoffed bitterly, satirising the official rhetoric about immigration.
Comic strip writer I Fablernas Land (”In the land of fables”) retorted with a caricature of the Swedish establishment led by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and cabinet ministers urinating on the public from a podium.
