Sweden Beset By New Crime-Wave Of "Humiliation Robberies"

A new kind of crime is making the headlines in Sweden, in Swedish known as förnedringsrån. Förnedring means "humiliation" and rån means "robbery." The victims of these "humiliation robberies" are almost always children or teenagers. As previously reported by Gatestone Institute:
  • "The number of children who rob other children has increased by 100% in only four years, according to a new study by Swedish police... In 2016, there were 1,178 robberies against children under 18 years of age. In 2019, the number had increased to 2,484. The number of violent crimes where the suspect is a child under 15 years of age has also gone up dramatically: In 2015, there were 6,359 reported violent crimes where the suspect was a child under 15. In 2019, that number had increased to 8,719 reported violent crimes".
The "humiliation robberies" have recently caused much consternation in Sweden. In Gothenburg, a criminal gang of youths forced their victim to kiss the gang leader's feet, while they filmed him. After that, they stomped on his face until he passed out.

In Stockholm, two 16-year-olds robbed, punched and kicked their 18-year old victim for hours. At the end of the ordeal, they took him behind a church where one of the perpetrators urinated on him while they called him names such as "most excellent Swede". They then forced him to take his clothes of while laughing mockingly at him, the victim, only known as Liam, told Swedish TV. The two 16-year-olds filmed the incident and spread it on social media.

The parents of one of the perpetrators came to Sweden six years ago from an unspecified African country, according to Swedish TV, who interviewed them in February. The parents both work and said that their son lacks for nothing. The mother wore a hijab during the interview.

Although Swedish media rarely publish details of the ethnic origins of gang members, some media research has shown that gang members overwhelmingly are either foreign-born or children of immigrants. In 2017, the Swedish mainstream media outlet Expressen did a report about the 49 criminal networks in Stockholm. The report showed the networks consisted of between 500 and 700 gang members: 40.6% of the gang members that Expressen surveyed were foreign-born; 82.2% had two parents who were foreign-born. Their main country of origin was Iraq, followed by Bosnia, Lebanon, Somalia, Syria and Turkey.

"It is a way to show your power. They want to dominate places. They do that by putting fear in other youths," said Thomas Petterson, an analyst for the Gothenburg police, in August.

"When it comes to these kinds of young people, they get a kick out of the deed, rather than going after possessions," said criminal prosecutor Linda Wiking.

However, little is apparently new about this form of crime. The only truly novel aspect of it is that the crime has become extreme to the extent that even Swedish mainstream media can no longer ignore it.

As early as 2007, four academics (Ingrid Björkman, Jan Elfverson, Jonathan Friedman and Åke Wedin) wrote a book, Exit Folkhemssverige ("Exit the Swedish Welfare State"), which received little to no attention in mainstream media at the time. The book contains much information about gang robberies, including the humiliation of the victims that they often entail:
  • "Since the early 1990s, gang robberies, where young people rob other young people, have been a marked feature of juvenile delinquency. From being a metropolitan phenomenon, the robberies have now spread across the country. Several reports, including an extensive BRÅ survey in 1999 of Malmö and Gothenburg, as well as interviews with police officers, give a coherent picture of the youth robberies. The increase is dramatic. In the Stockholm and Malmö regions, police reported robberies doubled in 1999, and the police are talking about a 'youth epidemic'. 80 - 90% of robbers have an immigrant background. The majority are 15 - 17 years...The victims are Swedish children and young people, primarily 'Swedish guys from rich men's schools', as one robber put it. The robberies are mostly carried out in the daytime and despite the fact that there are adults nearby. The surroundings rarely intervene... The robberies usually follow a certain pattern: A group of immigrant boys approach a selected victim and convey a clear threat with their actions. A common scenario is that one of the robbers holds a knife pressed against the victim, while the others rob him of mobile phone, bank card, money. The victim... is frightened and dare not [do anything] but give up the requested items... If he doesn't give up, he'll be beaten, often very brutally. Humiliation of the victim is not infrequently included in the picture. If it is a boy, it is about breaking his self-esteem. He is forced to cry, give up his shoes, even undress naked, kneel and plead for his life, etc. For the girl victims, sexual humiliation applies. They get their clothes ripped off, the robbers grab them and call them "whores". However, the robberies are rarely combined with rape. When the girls manage to get away, the robbers laugh out loud and let them run. Even little girls aren't safe... The gangs have gained respect, as it is called. This means that they have taken over certain neighborhoods, with the result that Swedish young people are restricting their freedom of movement...The teenage perpetrators behave like Mafiosi, police say. The robberies are a demonstration of power. If the robbers are caught, they laugh at the police, because the penalties for the crimes are so insignificant due to the young age of the perpetrators." (From chapter 5.)
The authors continued:
  • "The fact that it is a question of showing their power is confirmed by the immigrant youths themselves... 'The Swedes must become like us foreigners. Otherwise, they won't make it,' says one immigrant... 'You don't rob your own. And then it becomes immigrants against Swedes'. 'If you get to know them and pretend to look up to them, then you don't get robbed,' explains a Swedish 14-year-old. The defense mechanism is called conscious identity change. A sociological study at the University of Gothenburg by John Järvenpää has dealt in detail with the phenomenon of immigrant youth and robberies...The crucial motive for the choice of victims was ethnic. No one could imagine robbing someone of their own nationality. First, 'it's about respect.' Second, they would be severely punished by their compatriots. 'I'd get killed,' says one. 'The family would have killed us,' says another. That the robbers focus on Swedes is mainly because Swedes are afraid and therefore easy prey..."
Exit Folkhemssverige also has a section about gang rape, which the authors present as a different kind of humiliation crime:
  • Previously, gang rapes were virtually unknown in Sweden. But since the 1980s, they have steadily increased. Since 1995, they have quadrupled. In 1999, 35 gang rapes were recorded in Stockholm alone. Today, the media reports every week or every two weeks on such violent crimes. The usual pattern is the same as in the gang robberies. First, the ethnic relationship is the same: the victims are Swedish and among the perpetrators, the immigrants are greatly over-represented. For example, a study on sentencing practices shows that out of 24 perpetrators convicted of gang rape in 1989–91, 21 were foreign nationals. Whether the three Swedish citizens were ethnic Swedes or immigrants is not accounted for. Second, both perpetrators and victims are getting younger. In August 2001, for example, two 13-year-old girls in Malmö were raped by six immigrant boys aged 11 to 14. The case received widespread media attention, resulting in 17 rape reports against the same gang being filed with the police in the following days... The term 'whore' for Swedish women was launched by Muslim immigrant men from the Middle East. The concept has since been adopted by male immigrants from other cultures and now seems established..."
Exit Folkhemssverige was based, among many other sources, on the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention's (Brå) report "Youth who rob youth in Malmö and Stockholm" which was published in the year 2000 -- evidently at a time, when Swedish authorities still published details about the ethnic backgrounds of perpetrators. According to the report, 70-75 % of the victims of youth robbers were Swedes born of two Swedish-born parents, whereas:
  • "Between 1995 and 1999, the proportion of suspected perpetrators born in Sweden to Swedish-born parents fell in both Malmö and Stockholm, from 21% and 36% respectively, to 10% and 15% respectively... In Malmö, foreign-born young people made up more than half of all suspected perpetrators in 1995. By 1999, this proportion had increased to 69%. In Stockholm, young people born abroad accounted for about 40 % of the suspected perpetrators in both 1995 and 1999. Foreign-born young people were severely over-represented among the suspected perpetrators..." (page 27)
Twenty years after Brå's report about youths who rob other youths, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, blamed the most recent and widely publicized "humiliation robberies" on the former liberal-conservative government, which Löfven took over from in 2014:
  • "For a long time there was a policy, during eight years of the former conservative government, of tax reductions and welfare cuts. That will not do. Now we have changed that policy, we will invest more in welfare".

Sweden: Insurance company loses case against Migration Agency

The Swedish insurance company Trygg-Hansa has lost a case against the Swedish Migration Agency stemming from damages to a flat that was being used to house asylum-seekers.

The Agency had been leasing a flat which suffered water damage after the migrants living there blocked the drainpipe in a sink with a pillow; they then left the water tap running. The resulting flood damaged both that flat as well as the basement below it, which is in a public building. The incident took place between December 9 and 11, 2017, according to a report by Dagens Juridik.

The real estate company which owns the flat filed a claim with Trygg-Hansa, which in turn took over the right to demand compensation and sued the Agency for 600,000 kronor (approximately 55,000 euros) for damages, which they claimed was caused intentionally. The case was filed in July 2019 in district court.

“The Swedish Migration Agency is responsible for any damages incurred, regardless of whether the damages occurred as a result of intentional or negligent conduct,” the company’s complaint reads. “A tenant is responsible for all contractual obligations towards the landlord, even when the landlord has granted the right to use the apartment to others.”

The Agency acknowledged that the damage was indeed intentional, but denied that they are responsible for it on the grounds that migrants have a right to accommodation under the Act on the Reception of Asylum-Seekers, and are thus to be regarded as the actual tenants. If the damage had been the result of negligence, they claim, then they would be liable.

The court agreed with the Agency’s argument, and ruled that they “cannot be held responsible for the indiscriminate damages caused by persons they are housing” on the grounds that the damage was not caused as a result of any negligence on the part of the Agency.

Trygg-Hansa had also argued that the Agency is liable because they refused to disclose information about the identities of those migrants who caused the damage. The Agency responded that they have never received any formal request for the information.

The court’s judgement can still be appealed until April 22.

Sweden: Police warn against Right-wing extremism on anniversary of jihadi terror attack

April 7 was the third anniversary of the deadly truck attack carried out by a jihadi terrorist in central Stockholm. But Swedish police are more worried about the threat from Right-wing terrorism.

On April 7, 2017, Rakhmat Akilov, a rejected asylum-seeker from Uzbekistan, hijacked a truck and drove it into a crowd in the middle of the afternoon in one of Stockholm’s busiest shopping areas. Five people were killed, including 11-year-old Ebba Åkerlund, and dozens more were injured, some seriously. During the investigation, Akilov was found to have links to ISIS and other Islamist extremist groups and was charged by the authorities as a terrorist.

But when Sweden’s Security Police were recently asked about what threats the country faces today, Fredrik Hällström, Chief of Counterterrorism, warned about the alleged threat from Right-wing terrorists, according to a segment broadcast on Sweden’s TV4. Hällström claimed that Islamists and the extreme Right are indistinguishable from each other, and pose the same danger to Swedish society. He further claimed that there has been an increase in “Right-wing propaganda” that is “similar to what ISIS was doing.”

Sweden’s Security Police recently issued a report in which they claimed that the threat from Right-wing extremism is rising, while the Islamist threat is subsiding.

The police also recently published new guidelines which expand how “Right-wing extremism” is defined to include nationalism, anti-LGBT activism, and anti-feminism. Free speech on the Internet was singled out for allowing such ideas to spread in society.

Sweden’s SVT reported that in 2017, the Security Police had estimated that there were some 2,000 Islamic extremists living in Sweden. It is also known that approximately 300 ISIS fighters came from Sweden — about half of whom have since returned, and few have ever been charged with any criminal offense.

One returning ISIS jihadist recently sued the Swedish state for welfare payments that he did not receive during the period when he was incarcerated in the UK, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.

Sweden: Most migrants will never be self-sufficient

A new study conducted in Sweden suggests that the majority of people born in other countries will never become economically self-sufficient.

The study, which was conducted by economists Johan Eklund and Johan P. Larsson at the Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum, examined self-sufficiency among immigrants living in Sweden, as reported by Fria Tider.

Currently, roughly 20% of Sweden’s population was born in another country, and the gap in employment numbers between natives and foreign-born is among the widest in Europe.

According to the study’s results, it takes an average of 12-13 years after their arrival before even 50% of migrants in Sweden have achieved basic self-sufficiency, amounting to 12,800 kronor per month after tax (approximately 1,200 euros). For the most part, migrants live on government funding.

The study differentiated between self-sufficiency and the official employment rate, given that the Swedish government considers any citizen who does at least one hour of work per week to be employed. 55% of migrants were employed five years after arriving in Sweden, and yet fewer than 30% had actually attained self-sufficiency during the same period. The majority of migrants of working age failed to achieve self-sufficiency between 1990 and 2016 — in 2016, more than 600,000 working-age migrants were not self-sufficient.

The study showed that in 2016, migrants from Africa and the Middle East demonstrated the lowest level of self-sufficiency — 38% and 36%, respectively. Migrants in Stockholm showed a higher degree of self-sufficiency than the national average, while those in Malmö showed the lowest.

And in 2018, there were 772,000 migrants of working age who were dependent on social benefits — corresponding to 13.3% of Sweden’s workforce. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic are expected to make the situation even worse, the report claimed.

Another study recently released by the Swedish government showed that in 2019, 73% of the country’s population growth was due to migrants, while native-born Swedes continue to leave the country, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.

How kind of the city not to dump pig manure.
Swedish city dumps one ton of chicken manure in park to prevent gatherings

For years, students have gathered in the city park in Lund, Sweden on April 30th to have a massive picnic feast; however, this year the city has forbidden students from attending the feast to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus.

To stop people from gathering at the park, the city council decided to dump one ton of chicken manure on the grassy area of the park, Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports.

“Given that we have a situation where Lund could very well become some kind of epicenter for the spread of infection during last April, I think as chairman of the Environment Committee that it was a good initiative. We both get the opportunity to fertilize the lawns in the park and at the same time it will stink and then it may not be so nice to sit and drink beer in the park,” said Gustav Lundblad (KD), chairman of the environmental committee.

Sweden: Migrants harass police and Sweden Democrats by phone

A migrant in Sweden has been entertaining audiences by recording threatening and insulting phone calls to police and politicians from the Right-wing Sweden Democrats which they then circulate on social media. In the colorful recordings, officers are told that they and their family members should be raped, among other things.

The recordings are posted on multiple social media platforms under the name of “Roast Live.” The main individual behind the account is known only as Nabbe, a 34-year-old migrant from Lebanon who lives in the vicinity of Malmö, in southern Sweden.

In addition to harassing phone calls, Roast Live has arranged real-life “martial arts” events — which typically devolve into gang fights — that are also broadcast on social media, as reported by Samhällsnytt. Details of the events are published in advance and tickets for them are even sold online, despite the fact of the fights being illegal. One such event was even reported on by Swedish state television last year by journalists who didn’t realise that it was unauthorised. The cameraman who filmed the event for television was himself assaulted.

On Thursday, Roast Live posted a number of new phone recordings to Instagram, according to another report by Samhällsnytt. The calls had been placed to police officers on duty. In the recordings, Nabbe and another man can be heard speaking to officers.

Among the things they said to officers include:

“Are you most excellent retarded?”

“I’ll **** your mom’s pussy.”

“You should take my cock and suck me. In your face, you little whore. I’ll **** your mom.”

They also referred to female officers as lesbians.

In the comments, many viewers have posted about how hilarious they think the recordings are.

In the past, Roast Live has also targeted politicians from the Sweden Democrats with phone calls. One such recoding is below.

Eritrean migrants protest that they cannot bring their families to Sweden

Eritrean migrants living in Sweden are objecting to the fact that the country’s immigration laws make it difficult for their families to join them in Europe. They want the requirements eased.

The specific measure that the migrants are protesting is the so-called welfare requirement, which sets a minimum income and home size for individuals before they are eligible to bring their relatives to join them in Sweden under family reunification laws, according to a report by Fria Tider.

The minimum income requirement is dependent on the number of family members a migrant wants to bring to Sweden. The requirement is currently set at 8,000 kronor (approximately 750 euros) for an adult couple per month, after housing costs, and 3,000 (approx. 280 euros) per child.

In practice, for a standard family size of two adults and two children, the law sets a minimum monthly income of 14,000 Swedish kronor (approximately 1,300 euros), after housing costs. Also, such an applicant would be required to be living in a flat with a minimum of two bedrooms and a separate kitchen.

These requirements are waived for migrants who have been granted asylum, since they are supported by the Swedish taxpayers; therefore they only apply to migrants, including those from Eritrea, since the country is not considered a conflict zone.

Adding to the difficulties for Eritreans is that they typically have many children, which leaves them with a very high welfare requirement to meet.

Eritreans have held protests in central Stockholm against the law. And yesterday, four Eritrean men wrote an editorial objecting to Sweden’s welfare requirement that was published in the Svenska Dagbladet. They say they are being forced to remain separate from their families even after having lived in Sweden for many years, and are demanding that the law be changed.

When Fria Tider interviewed the Eritreans, however, they discovered that even though all of them are currently employed, they all have so-called “introductory jobs” — jobs in which the Swedish taxpayers cover 80% of the salary payments. Thus, all of them are currently being supported primarily by state benefits in spite of being employed.

“None of us has a permanent job, because we have no work experience in Sweden,” one of the Eritreans said. “How do we get a job without experience?”

Sweden: Woman fatally stabbed by 13-year-old

Swedish police have arrested a 13-year-old boy who is suspected of killing a 55-year-old woman during a botched robbery in Kungälv outside Gothenburg.

The incident occurred beneath an E6 highway bridge on May 10. The boy brandished a knife and demanded that the woman hand over her cell phone. When she refused, he stabbed her and then ran away, the Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.

Although she managed to alert police to the situation, the woman later died at the hospital from the injuries she had sustained during the attack.

This week, the 13-year-old boy was arrested for the offense, which was initially classified as attempted murder and gross robbery. The suspect is said to have been under the care of social services.

For some time now, both the Sweden Democrats and the Moderate party have argued that the legal age of punishment should be lowered from 15 to 13-years-old so that crimes like this one can be punishable.

Sweden: 8 out of 10 migrants arrive with no ID

Statistics released by the Swedish Migration Board reveal that the vast majority of migrants who come to Sweden bring no identification documents with them. While the average among all migrants who do not bring ID is 8 out of 10, among some nationalities, such as Afghans and many African countries, nearly 100% fail to provide any.

The statistics were released at the request of Merit Wager, a former Refugee Ombudsman who is a well-known debater on migration topics who is critical of Sweden’s migration policies, according to a report by Samhällsnytt. The data covers those who applied for asylum in Sweden between 2015, when the current migrant crisis began, and 2019. Data for Syrian migrants was not included, although they formed the largest country of origin for several years during this period.

The Migration Board itself, however, downplayed the problem, indicating that many migrants can prove their identities in other ways besides using documents. They also claim that some migrants present identity papers at a later time, but they did not offer statistics on this. “One might of course wonder why those who applied for asylum did not show their identity documents when they first arrived, if they still had them,” Wager commented.

For many countries, particularly those in Africa, 100% of those applied for asylum did not present documents. For many others the figures are 90% or greater, as well as for countries such as Afghanistan, Algeria, India, and Iran.

Curiously, 1,201 of those who applied for asylum in 2017 claimed that they were stateless, and yet records show that 11% of those still presented passports.

The statistics cover approximately 77,000 asylum-seekers during the period 2015-19 who were not able to present identification. However, it should be noted that the total number of migrants who came to Sweden in those years without ID is undoubtedly higher, since some countries were not included in the figures that were released.

The complete figures can be viewed in Samhällsnytt’s report.

Another recent study that was published by two economists shows that the majority of migrants in Sweden never succeed in becoming self-sufficient and continue to rely on state benefits for many years, as previously reported by Voice of Europe.

Call to remove the cross from the Swedish flag because it is “problematic”

Replace the Swedish flag with something more “inclusive” says scientist and board member of the Humanist society Patrik Lindenfors in an opinion piece published in Göteborgs Posten.

In the wake of the protests around the world, there are now calls to change the Swedish flag because of it’s Christian heritage.

The Swedish flag is a cross flag, with a symbol of a cross on it representing Christianity. The design of the flag is thought to have it’s origin in the cross banner used in the third crusade.

But according to Patrik Lindenfors the symbol is “problematic”, claiming that Christianity is connected with slavery and claiming that there isn’t any rule against slavery in the Bible.

However, the people who fought to abolish slavery were Christian men like William Wilberforce and John Newton.

He also says that another reason to change the Swedish flag is because a majority of Swedes are no longer Christian and that Christianity hasn’t had the most positive effect on Sweden.

Also, he thinks that using the Swedish flag in military operations in Middle Eastern countries is problematic, as it can be “interpreted as a crusade banner”. Sweden has been involved in Afghanistan.

There has recently been calls in Sweden to change Swedish heritage, among other things there were calls from a former Mayor to replace a statue of the famous Swedish King Charles XII with a statue of Greta Thunberg.

Threats have been made against statues of famous botanist Carl Linnaeus, prompting football supporters to defend a statue from far-left extremists.
Sure . :musilmah: Replace the Swedish flag with something more inclusive like a sword or a half moon and star.

Swedish police in immigration suburb in need of police protection

Staff working in a new police building in a suburb in Stockholm are afraid of assaults and will be escorted by police patrols on their way to and from their work.

The building is located in Rinkeby, a so-called “utanförskapsområde” or neighbourhood with social-economic problems in Sweden, where immigrants live isolated from the rest of the Swedish population. The building which will host 400 staff is due to be inaugurated in September.

“We’ll arrive there with a history of assaults against police and our vehicles,” said Frida Nordlöf, acting local police area chief in Rinkeby, in an interview in Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter on Thursday (6 August).

Though some types of crimes have decreased, the neighbourhood is still known for its severe gang criminality which has resulted in several killings in recent years. The situation is not much better in other similar areas in the other big cities in Sweden.

The influx of migrants to Sweden has resulted in a segregated society, with implications for the labour market, housing and education. 13 % of the Swedish population is born abroad, more than in any other EU member state. If also inhabitants with parents born abroad are included, the figure rises to about 25 %. Unemployment among male immigrants is around 15 %.

The failed integration policy has led to a political pushback in the form of the far-right anti-immigration party Sweden Democrats, which gained 17,5 % of the votes in the parliamentary elections in 2018. The party became almost the king maker in forming a new government but is still shunned by most of the other parties.

Recruitment to police training

To combat crimes and improve relations with those living in these areas, more police officers with the same background and talking the same language would probably help. However, attempts to increase the share of police officers with immigration background have so far been unsuccessful.

While the percentage of candidates with immigration background applying to police training correspond to the overall share of migrants in the population, the majority drops out before the training starts. It could be language problems but the recruitment agency has no explanation.

”I don’t have any figures of the background of our police officers,” Frida Nordlöf, the local police chief, told The Brussels Times. “We are aiming at diversity in the Swedish police force and our recruitment campaigns are focused on that.”

She added that there is no goal concerning the number of police officers wtih immigration backgrund in an area with many inhabitants with different ethnic background. “The police force should mirror the composition of the population at large and not only in a specific area.”

In recent years, Sweden has become known for its police films, where police officers with migration background appear, but it hardly reflects the reality on the ground. The ministry of justice declined to provide any figures. No immediate response was given by the Swedish National Police Agency.

Mass rioting in Malmo, Sweden, after a rumor gets out that someone burned a Koran.
Violence erupts in Swedish town of Malmo after anti-Islam actions, police say

A riot broke out on Friday in the southern Swedish town of Malmo, where at least 300 people had gathered to protest against anti-Islam activities, police said.

Protesters were throwing objects at police officers and car tyres had been set on fire, a police spokesman said. Earlier in the day, a copy of the Quran had been burned in Malmo by right-wing extremists.

“We don’t have this under control but we are working actively to take control,” the spokesman said.

“We see a connection between what is happening now and what happened earlier today,” he said.

The demonstrations had escalated in the same place where the Quran had been burned, the spokesman said.

Daily Aftonbladet said several anti-Islam activities had taken place in Malmo on Friday, including three men kicking a copy of the Quran between them in a public square.

The anti-Islam protests occurred after Rasmus Paludan, leader of Danish right political party Hard Line, had been denied permission to have a meeting in Malmo and was stopped at the Swedish border, according to the newspaper.

Those who protested against "anti Islam activities" were of course all Pippi Longstocking look-alikes, some Abba fans, and a few "gender fluid" people identifying as mermaids, ... right?

And those who "desecrated" the Quran were terrible people, disowned by every Swede, deserving to be broken on the wheel or sawn in half, for causing "upset" to the golden children of Sweden...

Now, here is them thing... if every time a child cries you give it ice cream, what will it learn? Make a fuss, get ice cream. If every time Muslims riot, they get what they want, what are we teaching them?
Jesus: "Ask and you will receive." Mohammed: "Take and give me 20%"

People are getting fed up. In Oslo Norway was also an anti-Islam rally, that ended up in riots.

Two migrant men raped, tortured, and bury two swedish boys at Solna church graveyard were passersby found two undressed boys suffering from beatings in an assault that lasted over ten hours.
Migrant Pair Rape, Torture, and Bury Two Boys Alive in Cemetery, Passerby Makes Rescue

Two migrant men--one Iranian and one Tunisian--are held in custody following the revelation of the inhumane crime

Two migrant men are currently in custody after Swedish authorities say they inflicted horrendous torture on two teenage boys who were allegedly raped and buried alive during the ordeal.

On Sunday morning, police were called to the Northern Solna church graveyard after passersby found two undressed boys suffering from beatings that had been carried out throughout the night, in an assault that lasted over ten hours.

According to the Daily Mail, the pair of migrants had offered to sell the underage teens drugs, and when they refused, took them to a cemetery to carry out the savage attack.

The two victims–both minors in their teens–were conscious and talkative when emergency medical technicians administered treatment after being exposed to “torture-like and abusive violence,” according to Fria Tider. Their current state is unknown.

After police cordoned off the area, police quickly found and arrested the two suspects–one of whom was wearing a stolen item belonging to one of the victims. The two young migrant men were detained on probable cause on suspicion of kidnapping, aggravated assault, rape and aggravated robbery.

The first suspect–a 21-year-old Iranian man who came to Sweden in 2009–was already known to police on a multitude of prior charges and was sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison for an arson attack where he had set a sports car on fire. The unnamed man of Iranian origin had also racked up arrests for theft, illegal driving, drunk driving and minor drug offenses. It was unclear as to why he was not in prison at the time of the arrest–given his arson conviction.

The second suspect was the 18-year-old son of Tunisian immigrants who was wanted in connection with an attempted burglary after DNA evidence put the young man at the scene of the crime.

Despite both suspects being known to authorities, they have denied the charges against them.

I think the BBC may be taking tentative steps into reporting events in Abbaland (sounds a bit Arabic) . They did a short piece about a young unhijabbed Syrian woman and how she is faring in her new homeland and touched on Swedish crime rates. .Maybe they'll start reporting rather less savory stuff like the above story. Obviously, if the ethnicities of victims and perpetrators had been reversed it would have got top billing on BBC news and taken up most of the program

How can the police allow people kicking the koran . We have feelings too Laila said.

The woman had a leading role on friday evening when Muslims started to riot in response of the burning of a copy of the Quran.

She feels sorry now, and she says she is completely opposed to the vandalism of the young male muslims.

A very pertinent question. If you don't want Islam in your country don't import millions of its followers. If only the open borders folks would understand that, unlike Christianity, Islam cannot be indefinitely confined to the realm of personal ritual observance. You don't even have to read the Qur'an and hadith to realise that. You just have to see the state of things in Muslim majority countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. Most of us would have given Islam no more thought than Mormonism but for the propensity for fanatical violent outbursts it's followers have brought with them from their lands of origin.

A very reasonable question if you are brought up to believe that the Qur'an deserves a special respect in a country where people will be arrested, jailed and worse for not showing it that respect. If you pass your belief in the Quran's special inviolability to your children and grandchildren then it is unsurprising that they too will be so enraged to see the most wonderful thing in creation being mistreated in this way that they can turn nasty. Given the basic premises she holds the lady's angry bemusement is entirely understandable. Our main problem is that most left liberal progressives have adopted the Muslim view that the Qur'an deserves to be respected by those of us its pages incessantly vilify and inspire volence against.
