Sweden Turns To Its Military For Help Fighting Violent Immigrant Gangs | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Sweden is turning to its military to curb violent crime that has soared alongside immigrant gang activity across the country.

    Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson announced on Friday that he planned to ask the country's military to step in and aid police in combatting surging shootings and bomb attacks. The prime minister also said he would look into legislation that would give the military greater authority to engage in police activities, according to the Financial Times.

    The prime minister's announcement followed remarks he made the day before condemning the surge in violence and saying that Sweden's immigration policies are largely to blame. Police officials in the Scandinavian country have said the security situation in Sweden is the worst it has been since World War II.

    "I cannot emphasize enough how serious the situation is. Sweden has never seen anything like it before. No other country in Europe sees anything like it currently," Kristersson said Thursday night, according to FT.

    "It is political naivete and cluelessness that has brought us here," he continued. "It is an irresponsible immigration policy and failed integration effort that has brought us here."

    Criminal gangs in Sweden have preyed upon children and teens, enticing or forcing them to commit crimes because the penalties against underage criminals are less severe than against adults.

    "Social exclusion and parallel societies feed the criminal gangs. There they can ruthlessly recruit children and train them as future killers," Kristersson said.

    The effort to involve the military in curbing gang violence appears to have drawn support across the political spectrum in Sweden. Before Kristersson, a center-right politician, Sweden's former Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, who is center-left and in the opposition, said Thursday that the military should be leveraged against the gangs.

    "Surveillance performed by police officers could be carried out by the military. In addition, there is technical know-how with the military that they could assist with," the former prime minister said. Her comments came after a violent 24 hours in which three people were killed in shootings and bombings.

    Earlier in the week, two explosions ripped through buildings in a suburb of Sweden's capital and Linkoping, 110 miles southwest. The bombs injured at least three people. A Swedish newspaper reported that both explosions are suspected of being connected to gang activity.


    National Police Commissioner Anders Thornberg said last month that violence across Sweden has reached an "unprecedented scale."

    "Several boys aged between 13 and 15 have been killed, the mother of a criminal was executed at home, and a young man in Uppsala was shot dead on his way to work," Thornberg said. "Citizens are afraid, insecurity is increasing. And this at a time when we have raised our terrorist alert level in the country."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Just going to point out, Sid said she lied about the election. In court, with her skin in the game, she told the truth. Liz Cheney for president!

Sweden's new conservative government is doing a good job cracking down on illegal immigration and the harm they bring to the country.

The Woke insanity that gave US: Trump Derangement Syndrome; the Summer of George; Cashless Bail; America's Most Flawed Election (2020); Wide Open Southern Border policy; the second Great Migration (south); a failed or failing Education Industry; America's First Idiot President; Leftist Propagandist Media on Steroids; "White Supremacy as an Existential Threat;" the January Sixth Show Trial and Fake Congressional Investigation; Drag Shows for Children; Genital Mutilation on Demand for Children, and so much more inane Leftist stupidity, is becoming an evil thing of the past around the World; witness Sweden and many other European Countries swinging toward sane policies.
