60% increase in bomb blasts for Sweden

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A surge in drug-linked gang violence in Sweden led to a 60% increase in bomb blasts in 2019, according to government statistics, as police work to rid the streets of explosives and guns with more officers on patrol.

"Sweden has been hit by a wave of shootings and bombings over the past couple of years, which police have linked to gang conflicts in major cities, shocking Swedes, who have long considered their country as one of the safest in the world.

"Some 257 bomb attacks were reported to police last year, up from 162 the previous year, the statistics from the National Council for Crime Prevention."

This sounds weird - unless they've decided the Police are 'wrong'. Are the police trying to link it to illegal drugs (they don't mention alcohol which is a legal drug) - sounds like they're looking for political friends or another 'point'.

If you look at the list of The safest nations in The Word Sweden is still in The top. Yes We do get some shootings and have had some bombings lately this is mostly related to gang conflicts. Im not saying that We dont have problems but we're still one of The safer countries to visit in Europé.  How do i know this i live in Sweden and not far from one of The worst areas in Sweden.
