"People's Hero". "Whistleblower". "The next national police chief." The experienced and well-known criminal investigator Peter Knight praised facebook messages have got it to boil over in public debate. It has started a Facebook group to support him on Monday had over 24 000 members. Can you believe the comments will police station in Örebro be inundated with flowers today. An almost lyckochock in the circuits that are aware of the situation in Sweden and a dimmed reluctant response in the mainstream media, where police investigator portrayed more as a suspected criminal.
Only Norway looks unlikely to reform entitlements anytime soon, bolstered by its oil wealth. The country is home to the world's largest sovereign wealth fund. Worth some 5,116 billion kroner (610 billion euros, $830 billion), each of the country's 5,096,000 inhabitants is -- at least on paper -- a millionaire. New centre-right Prime Minister Erna Solberg has pledged to preserve the welfare state.

You think another (12 months old) opinion-piece is a somehow irrelevant addition to this new opinion-piece regarding an ex-cops whinery on fakebook? Why?
Hand-written letter in your reply would be nice, yes. Hand-writing tends to put things in a visual context, it's a readable character-study for insiders and I'm always looking forward to cement my prejudices with holy scriptures. Plus I don't get many nowadays, so if you don't mind...
The cat is out of the bag, and you don't have a leg to stand on in your argument.

“If you can't discuss the problem of crime among immigrants without somebody attributing it to racist propaganda, we are in deep trouble,” he said. “The problem is that nobody wants to talk about this.”
A police investigator in Sweden used his personal Facebook to complain about the rampant crime being committed by migrants. He goes on to tell people what his workload for that particular week was - many rapes, assaults, drug crimes, attempted murder, etc. The overwhelming majority of these, he says, were committed by migrants - with one exception being a Swedish man named Christopher who was involved in a drug incident.
The officer has since received an outpouring of support from the community, with groups springing up to show their appreciation for his willingness to discuss this very serious issue.
Imagine if this were to happen in the U.S. - this man would have been forced to practically hide for his life amid the public outrage. Sweden however is dealing with a very real problem that the people have woken up to, and rather than condemning this officer, he's being celebrated and hailed as a hero by the public, which is a huge indication of how severe the migrant problem in Sweden really is.
