Sweden: Shots fired at police stationThe unprecedented crime wave and the general disintegration of Swedish society continue. As usual, we don't get to know who these "local youths" are:
Shots fired at police station
A police station in Södertälje, near Stockholm, was hit by around fifteen shots from an automatic weapon on Sunday night, following a major confrontation between local youths and police. Three people have been arrested, suspected of being involved in the rioting, although police are still searching for the gunmen. Bullets from the guns went through the police station’s windows and walls. Staff threw themselves on the ground to take shelter, before staring to organise how they would defend themselves were the shooting to continue. Apart from police staff, two civilian women were in the police station. They were being questioned about a reported harrassment earlier in the day, which had been the background to the rioting. The women had called the police and reported that they had been harrassed in the shop where they work. Police refused to reveal details of their allegations, because questioning had been broken off by the gunfire, but three young men who had been identified by the women were suspected of making illegal threats. The three men were released in the evening, but the arrests had provoked strong reactions among 20-35 other youths in the area. The group advanced on the police and attacked them with stones. The rioters were dispersed by around midnight. Three people were arrested, and have now been remanded in custody: one suspected of provoking a riot and the others suspected of rioting.
Meanwhile, demonstrators want to grant amnesty to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants in Sweden, something that has been done several times before. The country has lost any semblance of control with its borders, and the consequences could become horrific. But don't talk about it, that would be racist:
Demonstrations for Asylum Amnesty
Demonstrations were held in around 30 communities around Sweden Saturday on behalf of an amnesty for refugees. Among the speakers at a rally in downtown Stockholm were the leaders of the Left Party and the opposition Christian Democrats. Five Swedish political parties favor the amnesty, but the two largest parties, the ruling Social Democrats and the Conservative Moderates, are opposed. There were around 4000 demonstrators in Gothenburg, while another 500 to 600 marched in Malmö. Meanwhile, Swedish Radio News reports that the number of people coming here and going underground without applying for asylum is growing rapidly. While no one knows how many people are involved, charities who work with illegal immigrants say more and more have not tried to apply for asylum. In recent years it has become harder and harder to receive permission to stay in Sweden. Last year nine out of ten applications for asylum were rejected.
