Nordic nations what have you done! For decades European nations thumbed their noses and criticized the uncivilized "Yanks / Americans" over our urban violence and gang problems... Only to create the same problems for themselves in their own countries.

Hand Grenades attacks....


Give up your grenades and walk free: Sweden's explosives amnesty gets under way
www.thelocal.se...




According to police figures, 43 hand grenades were seized in Sweden last year, of which 21 had been detonated. In 2016, 55 were seized, of which 35 had detonated.

Both years were a notable increase on the amount of grenades detonated in 2015, when the number was ten (though the amount seized that year, 45, was consistent with 2017).

During the amnesty period, anyone in possession of explosive goods without a licence can hand them over to police without fear of punishment. It is possible to stay anonymous. Such goods include for example hand grenades, but also explosives in general, detonators or other pyrotechnical goods such as illicit fireworks.

Unlike during Sweden's weapons amnesty earlier this year, it is not permitted to bring unwanted explosives to police stations. People are instead urged to call 114 14, the non-emergency police contact number, to report the weapons.


Why Swedish gangs use hand grenades (and what the country is doing about it)

Law changes have also been introduced to help the Customs Agency detect the grenades that smugglers attempt to bring in to Sweden. Unlike weapons, it was previously not necessary for explosive objects (including grenades) to be reported to customs authorities ahead of importing them into the country. In November 2017 the laws changed however to bring the customs rules regarding explosives in line with weapons rules, meaning failing to report them is considered smuggling. The change was something customs agents had long been arguing for.

A grenade amnesty period begins in Sweden this week with the government guaranteeing those who hand in explosive devices to police will not face arrest or prosecution.
The weapons amnesty is set to take place between October 15th to January 11th of next year and is aimed at getting grenades and other explosives off the streets where they are being used by organised criminal gangs, broadcaster SVT reports.

I could use some hand grenades for my bunker.

In a zombie apocalypse. They'd come in handy.

Hand grenade violencE!

I wonder how much they're charging.

Sweden's homicide rate is about a fifth of the U.S.

Think they are still doing ok.

Who knew Sweden would have a hand grenade problem, and that it would overshadow their rape problem?

Sweden doesn't have a rape problem. Or at least no more than anywhere else does.

How does one 'seize' a detonated grenade? A detonated grenade has surely exploded into a thousand pieces and the definition of seize is 'to take forcefully' ? Did the person who detonated the grenade pick up all the pieces afterwards and then those pieces were seized? So many questions.

Sweden has a rape problem, and most of the convicted attackers are foreign born.

And so the feigning ignorance and double talk will commence.

Please people, don't fall for the moving goal post and usual tactics meant to derail.

Nope it was an evidence free statement.

If someone is claiming sweden has a rape problem ( by which I assume they mean relative to other countries) then they need to say why and provide evidence.

Ignorance is those making fact free claims.

And why you can't compare recorded rapes by country has been covered in excruciating detail on this site many times as well you know.

Yet you and others keep on with these claims.

Well, luckily ninja just posted some comparisons by country. Enjoy, I'm sure there is some reason you will find this link to not be evidence and dismiss it while living "your truth".

A frequently cited source when comparing Swedish rape statistics internationally is the regularly published report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). In 2012, according to the report by UNODC, Sweden was quoted as having 66.5 cases of reported rapes per 100,000 population,[35] based on official statistics by Brå.[36] This is the highest number of reported rape of any nation in the report.

The UNODC itself discourages any cross-national comparisons based on their reports, because of the differences that exist between legal definitions, methods of offense counting and crime reporting.
