Sweden: Migrants Responsible For 90% of Shootings

A new study has found that people with a migrant background are responsible for 90% of shootings in Sweden, emphasizing once again how the country’s huge importation of “refugees” is exacerbating social problems.

“Young men with immigrant background are behind almost all murder and assassination attempts by firearms shows a recent survey. Most of them originate in the Middle East and North Africa,” reports FriaTider.

The stats are taken from an investigation by Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, which found that out of 100 people involved in assassination and murder attempts where firearms were used, 90 people had at least one foreign-born parent.

Around 80% of the culprits are from Middle Eastern and North African countries such as Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Somalia and Eritrea.

The newspaper speculates that joblessness could be a contributing factor to the crime wave, pointing out that less than 30% of adult Somalis living in Sweden have a job.

“It is a fact that the phenomenon of street violence and violence occurs in some areas, and most of those living there have been foreigners,” said Stockholm University’s Amir Rostami.

The figures back up veteran Swedish police officer Peter Springare’s assertion that crimes he processed, which include rape, assault, violence against police, drug trafficking and murder, were almost exclusively committed by someone named “Mohammed” or a variation of that name and the culprits were invariably from Iraq, Turkey, Afghanistan, Somalia, or Syria.

Instead of addressing why migrants are so vastly overrepresented in crime statistics, Sweden has instead targeted those who dare to draw attention to the problem.

A Swedish government body recently put thousands of people on a “hate list” by blocking Twitter accounts that so much as questioned whether accepting migrants was a good idea. The list also ensnared completely non-political individuals such as Swedish YouTuber PewDiePie.

Other countries in Europe that have accepted large numbers of migrants are also experiencing huge problems with crime.

A report released last year by Germany’s Interior Ministry found that an extra 402,741 crimes were committed by migrants, with non-Germans accounting for 27.6 percent of total offences.
