Swedish Police Officers Blast Swedish Authorities, Media over Crime Wave Cover-up

Two Swedish police officers stepped forward in February discussing the scope of migrant crime in Sweden and attempts by the Swedish government and media to cover the crime wave up.

The first police officer, Peter Springare, is now reportedly under criminal investigation for “incitement to racial hatred."

In a Facebook post, Springare, an investigator for the Örebro police, wrote, "I’m so f***** tired. What I’m writing here isn’t politically correct. But I don’t care."

Springare continued, detaling the horrors of this increase in crime as well as the reality of migrant perpatrators.

Here we go; this is what I’ve handled from Monday-Friday this week: rape, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, rape-assault and rape, extortion, blackmail, assault, violence against police, threats to police, drug crime, drugs, crime, felony, attempted murder, rape again, extortion again and ill-treatment." “Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohammed, Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again. Christopher… what, is it true? Yes, a Swedish name snuck in on the edges of a drug crime. Mohammed, Mahmod Ali, again and again." “Countries representing all the crimes this week: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can’t be sure because they don’t have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they’re lying about their nationality and identity.

After Springare's post went viral, another Swedish police officer chose to speak up as well.

Tomas Asenlov, a policeman from Gothenburg came out in support of Springare's message and expounded on the extent of the cover-up by Swedish authorities. 

I have worked in the police more than 43 years. I share Peters' views on this infected issue 100 percent. Our leaders do not dare to take a position in any direction. As you can see, there is no high ranking official who has dared to give Peter backing. Instead, Code 291 was introduced, which cover all information about the immigration-related crime. Just look at the photo ban at the police station. Frightening in Sweden today. To top it all the police chief himself reported it to the Authority. Instead of supporting his staff. Otherwise heads become relocated if they are not dancing in front of the national police chief's barrel. The Swedish public has to be told all the facts now. I understand that the younger officers may not dare to go out and criticize the leaders, or go out openly and support Peter. Then it is over for a future career. Then, when they apply for jobs, they will be classed as disloyal to the employer. I myself will soon retire, so they can criticize my opinion. I have previously been called in for correction when I had opinions on this forum. Now I believe that the ball has started rolling and maybe we can get the leaders to open their eyes and no longer deny the truth. LIVE STRONG, Tomas Åsenlöv, Bicycle Police, Greater Gothenburg.

In 2015, Breitbart interviewed a retired Swedish police chief, Torsten Elofsson. Elofsson was Chief Superintendent of the Malmo police force. Malmo is the most dangerous city in Western Europe, according to analysis by Swedish newspapers HD and Sydsvenskan.

Elofsson initially broke the news that Sweden was in the midst of a widespread cover-up. 

The latest poll shows the Sweden Democrats [Swedish nationalist party] at 27 per cent. This is a sort of explanation of what is going on – the politicians, the media sends out a message that everything is safe and secure, you don’t have to worry. But people act according to their own experience – they see things, they experience things, they talk to their neighbours. And they feel the picture being presented in the media is not entirely accurate.

The liberal media would have you believe that Sweden is a multicultural paradise and that a European migrant has not once ever committed a crime. This is patently false

President Trump may have made a gaffe at his rally on Saturday, referring to an incident "last night" in Sweden. While there was no headline-grabbing terror attack over the weekend in Sweden, this does not mean Sweden was completely safe either. Trump revealed on Sunday in a tweet that he was referring to a story broadcast on FOX News regarding immigrants and crime in Sweden. 

Trump followed it up with another tweet on Monday, solidfying his stance:

If Springare, Asenlov, and Elofsson are to be believed, Trump may be correct. Sweden provides an unequivocal example of the dangers of runaway immigration, and identifying this problem will allow law enforcement to create a safe enviroment for all Swedes. 

There is nothing xenophobic in realizing that those from one culture may find assimilation difficult in another culture, and that this creates angst which leads to crime. Of course economic factors hinder assimilation as well, and migrants face tremendous difficulty finding employment. In 2016, fewer than 500 of 163,000 migrants had found work after coming to Sweden according to The Local.  

Recognize the problem and work on a solution, but don't pretend it isn't happening.
