Sweden Rivals Mexico for Grenade Attacks, Shooting Fatalities Five Times Higher Than Neighbouring Countries

A new report has shown that the number of fatal shootings in Sweden is up to four to five times that in Germany and the number of hand grenade attacks is on par with Mexico.

We have reported many times on how the ‘open doors’ immigration policy operated by the Swedish government for over a decade has resulted in that once safe and peaceful nation becoming with more rapes per 100,000 population that anywhere else in Europe and, as this latest news shows, lawless and violence on a par with third world nations.

Sweden per capita has a rate of gun crime resulting in fatalities four to five times that of its neighbour Norway or Germany according to a new report. The researchers say that the only European equivalent to gun crime in Sweden is southern Italy, and the use of hand grenades in attacks is rivalled only by areas of Mexico in which drug cartels operate, Sveriges Radio reports.

Researcher and criminologist Joakim Sturup who contributed to the study said: “When we speak with police and research colleagues abroad, finding a counterpart in other countries is difficult.”

Sturup said that the study found that most of the past violent crime, which was largely associated with outlaw motorcycle gangs, had moved to the suburbs of major cities in Sweden. Many have referred to these areas, like Rinkeby, Tensta, and Husby, as no-go zones as police and emergency services working in those areas are often attacked.

In Husby, the local authorities attempted to revitalise the areas for local businesses by hiring security personnel to protect shops from looting and violence. The effort proved unsuccessful as no security company offered to take on the job due to the dangerous working environment.

The Swedish government has estimated that there are currently 61 no-go areas, up from 55 last year. Swedish National Police Commissioner Dan Eliasson begged the government for assistance to tackle the problem earlier this year and said without help the over 5,000 hard criminals could destabilise the social contract.
