It is always interesting to see that predictions dismissed as ‘conspiracy theories’ when they turn out to be accurate become corporate media credible.
In the words of now wide awake Gothenburg Police Chief Erik Nord, who connected firearm violence to cultural factors, ‘basically everyone who shoots or is shot in gang conflicts originate from the Balkans, the Middle East, North or East Africa’.
Erik Nord, the head of the Greater Gothenburg police area has admitted a link between mass shootings and immigration. The Swedish Crime Prevention Council (Brå) recently issued a report suggesting that Sweden is the only country in Europe where fatal shootings are on the rise, and that Sweden has the second most fatal shootings in Europe after only Croatia.
In an opinion piece in the newspaper Göteborgs-Posten, Police Chief Erik Nord attempted to explain the origins of this phenomenon. Well, who would have guessed it: ‘Among other things, he pointed out individual characteristics and dysfunctional family environments as important factors behind some people growing up to become violent criminals.’
The newly awake cop also highlighted the immigration aspect. ‘It is no longer a secret today that much of the problem of gang and network crime with the shootings and explosions are linked to immigration to Sweden in recent decades. When you, like me, have the opportunity to follow cases at the individual level, you see that basically everyone who shoots or is shot in gang conflicts originates from the Balkans, the Middle East, North or East Africa’, Nord wrote.
Nord additionally emphasised a difference in culture among the contributing factors. ‘Here, cultural factors can be part of the explanation. A different conflict management based on retaliation and compensation. A parenting tradition based on discipline. A macho-idealising masculinity that rewards toughness, risk-taking, physical strength, and self-violence. A strongly gender-based social control and where social relationships can contain elements of rigid hierarchy’, Nord wrote.
Erik Nord ventured that part of the explanation why gun violence in Sweden is worse than in Germany, which has a similar immigration policy and has seen a large influx of immigrants in recent years, is the much higher proportion of tax-funded police officers in Germany.
Yet, he ascribed part of the problem to Sweden’s reluctance (politically correct censorship) to discuss the very cultural factors he named earlier.
‘Changing basic values is not easy, but becoming aware of them can help us maintain a factual discussion instead of sweeping awkward questions under the rug’, the police chief said.
In 2020, Sweden saw 349 confirmed shootings, with 44 people registered as having died as a result of gun violence. Some 111 people were left injured over the same time period.
The increase in firearm violence in recent decades, which is in stark contrast to overall European trends, has been a topic for national debate. Among others, Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Åkesson slammed the government’s effort as an ‘utter failure’ and compared Sweden to ‘Europe’s Chicago’.
The authorities have long been reticent about the role of immigration but started to acknowledge it after Prime Minister Stefan Löfven admitted integration problems in 2020. Source
