Riots In Stockholm

Recommended Posts

Rioters have lit fires and stoned emergency services in the suburbs of Stockholm for the third night in a row after a man was shot dead by police.

Incidents were reported in at least nine suburbs of the Swedish capital and police made eight arrests.

On Sunday night, more than 100 cars were set alight, Swedish media report.

More than 80% of Husby's 12,000 or so inhabitants are from an immigrant background, and most are from Turkey, the Middle East and Somalia.

They say its segregation. The Amish seem pretty segregated from the rest of society, and yet dont seem to riot much. I think its something else.

You missed the interesting bit:

Police in the deprived, largely immigrant suburb of Husby shot a man dead last week after he reportedly threatened to kill them with a machete

A more paranoid person than myself might draw parallels to the recent incident in Woolwich...

¶1. (SBU) Summary. Two recent GoS reports show immigrants in

Sweden to be overrepresented in crime and sick leave statistics,

which are interpreted as being indicators of integration

shortcomings. The level of attention applied to the issue of

integration stands to increase as we approach the September 2006

parliamentary elections. End Summary.

Immigrants Overrepresented in Crime Statistics

--------------------------------------------- -

¶2. (SBU) According to a report by the National Council for Crime

Prevention published in December 2005, immigrants or individuals

with at least one immigrant parent perpetrated about 45 percent of

all crimes during the period 1997-2001. In regard to the most

serious felonies -- murder, manslaughter, assault and rape -- the

percentage was even higher.

¶3. (SBU) A National Council press release about the report

focused on other findings showing immigrants are often wrongly

suspected of crimes -- possibly in deference to the politically

sensitive nature of the crime statistics. The Council report

cites failed government integration strategy as partly responsible

for the over-representation of immigrants in criminal activity.

Immigrants Use More Sick Leave

------------------------------

¶4. (SBU) Just days after the crime report the National Social

Insurance Office issued a report on use of sick-leave. This

report concludes that immigrants use sick-leave more often than

indigenous Swedes. Those of certain national origins, such as

people from North Africa, the Middle East and Turkey, show high

rates of sick leave, especially among women. These groups take an

average of 34 sick days per year, as compared to 20 days for

ethnic Swedes. The report offers as a possible explanation that

immigrants often fill low status jobs with low wages and often

difficult work

¶5. (SBU) The sick-leave report stated that long-term

unemployment can lead to loss of health insurance. Among ethnic

Swedes some 5 percent are outside the social insurance system,

while among people from North Africa and the Middle East the rate

is as high as 30 percent. These people are often long-term

recipients of state welfare, which is arguably generous enough to

serve as a disincentive to work.

Comment

-------

¶6. (SBU) Sweden's population is approximately 9 million. The

rapid arrival of large numbers of immigrants (Sweden granted

873,040 residence permits between 1980 and 2004) combined with a

widely-held perception that immigrants are a burden upon society

due to welfare dependence and disproportionate criminal activity,

has generated a measure of hostility towards them. Although none

of the political parties currently in parliament advocate a more

restrictive immigration policy, 1.4 percent of the electorate

supported the extremist, xenophobic Sweden Democrats (whose online

paper was shut down after publishing the Mohammed cartoons - see

Reftel) in the 2002 parliamentary elections.

¶7. (SBU) Sweden has significant immigrant integration problems,

resulting in high rates of unemployment and welfare dependency,

and, as recent studies indicate, criminality. Sweden, with its

generous worker benefits and high carrying costs per employee,

also makes it expensive and difficult to create the entry-level

positions these immigrants could fill. Combine the disincentives

to job creation with the relatively generous welfare benefits and

actual prohibitions against asylum seekers from taking employment,

and you end up with an idle group with few productive outlets.

These results of these recent studies coupled with concern about

local effects from the Mohammed cartoon controversy are likely to

raise a notch the level of concern about integration during the

parliamentary elections campaign.

Nothing is wrong with immigration, per se...

There is a problem with wholesale immigration policy for unskilled, uncivilised, uneducated religious zealots into a modern western liberal democracy.

Sweden, believe it or not, is the rape capital of Europe, and 99.9% of rapes are reported as being perpetrated by immigrants.

Sweden also leads Europe in income-inequality.

I suppose its time for the Disney-esque policy to toughen up.

You wouldn't know it from walking about the cities there though, everything is kept out of sight, like these neighbourhoods full of young black and Arab Islamic thugs.

There is no racial integration, in other words. Just like everywhere else.

Cashinmattress: you sure about the income inequality?

Like other countries with large population of immigrants, they can't get work because the lack the technical, social, and language skills to perform in western society.

In Sweden, ditch diggers, window washers, fruit pickers...labourers are 90% Swedes, and on good wages.

These kids rioting have no jobs, are on welfare, so yes.

Two tier society in what purports to be the most liberalised and fair country in Europe.

I think that has just been all a big lie.

Take a walk around any large Swedish city and you're hard pressed to find non-white people.

The link showed Sweden increasing (trending upwads) the most in Europe but less than half (edit: 0.35 in the uk. 0.25 something in Sweden, not half)) of many European countries. The income inequality in England compared to Sweden (having lived in both) is enormously a lot higher in England.

I've lived in both as well.

Have you lived with poor Somali people in their poor Muslim neighbourhoods in both countries?

Sweden does a much better job of keeping it all out of sight and out of the press.

Disney land censorship and ridiculous political correctness has nothing on Sweden.

Intifada is fine when you're supplying the guns and money to these folk in some far away land....

Whitewashing....

It does beg the question why so many immigrants are seemingly falling over themselves to live in Sweden then?

And Britain.

Because even if these people are convicted of crimes they will live in a western jail that is far superior to the alternative, being some despotic country where they were likely exiled from for their beliefs.

The solution for these folks causing abroad is their extermination by the local warlord, junta, or dictator.

Opening the doors to these ones was always going to be a problem.

So they can rape some of the best looking women in europe?

I thought Malmo would've been the first to blow up, proper. Didn't know Stockholm was 'so' enriched.

Yes, this I agree with.

Fukyama was on the right track, but Huntington came the closest to calling it I would say..in regards to the future.

Supplanting one into another so diametrically opposed can only end badly.

Akar Karim, 22 years old, who works as a student assistant at a nearby school, also stressed that after school, a lot of young people have little to do.

Like hello, this is Sweden ja, there is absolutely nothing to do.

It was a socialist utopia - then a right wing government got in, "reforms" started and income inequality sky-rocketed.

This is the result.

Sweden has a massive political correctness censorship and particularly on immigration - totally agree. The tabu to discuss it amongst yourselves and friends is disappearing and has since a few years back but it's still a massive no no to mention, in the media, things like "perhaps there amount of immigrants being taken on cannot be integrated". The amount of Facebook traction these riots get is very big - but more from a "why is it happening please stop and what can society do". Very little "ffs just shoot the *******".

For the record I am Swedish and lived in the land of blondes for 25 years until 2004.

Yeah whenever I consider society more unequal than it was in the past I go out and start rioting and smashing stuff up.
