It must really be bad to stop contractors from even bidding on a government contract in a certain area.. Speechless, typeless, or something for I am at a loss for words.... The new building was to house 240 officers after the old station was closed down in 2014..?

This reminds me of a time in Detroit in the 1990's. One of My friends was a SGT in an Army Military Intelligence Unit based on Jefferson Avenue down there. The facility was like a "Mini-Fort", built like a Castle(all brick, no windows) with two rows of 12 foot fence and concertina wire at the top surrounding it. They got a new Company Commander and were to have a "change of guard" ceremony on the front yard with all the staff assembled outside. They decided it was a bad Idea, as it was just too dangerous for the Army Personnel, and cancelled it. Sounds like this type of "Detroit Mini-Castle" is what the Swedes need.

I'm sure you're not referring to the Swedish law enforcement, are you?
Or are you just triggered by the source so therefor it's racist?

if you bothered to actually look into the claim, instead of just making up your own beliefs, you will see that there was zero bids for the contract to bid on with construction companies citing fear of safety and danger from gangs, and corroborated by the police and reported multiple outlets in Sweden.
Why bother to research though when we can just read a headline and refuse to believe it, that is much easier.
You are right, it will never happen in America because private companies know American police would never allow criminals to go unchallenged in such instances. No problem shooting mofo's .
