that video is propaganda, a real issue spun to suit an agenda, it should be obvious.
the solution posed by the video is to increase police funding, pay them higher wages, tax the people more so you can also hire more police. how anyone in their right mind thinks that is the solution is beyond me.
think about it, we lived for tens of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands of years on this world without a police force, under governments far worse,
whats the difference between then and now that cause this?
the eradication of the right to self defense, so now only the criminals can defend themselves, while the law abiding citizens become sitting ducks, vulnerable to anything and everything,
stop looking for someone else to help you. help yourselves.
every person should be able to defend themselves, and in an age of guns, that means everyone should carry a gun, dont be scared by that idea, the fear is what keeps you defenseless

So you're telling the Swedes to pack heat? What are the guns laws in Sweden? Is this even an option for the Swedes?

No, this time were not going to go save Europe. Maybe they should increase defense spending and expand the size of their own military forces - you know, defend themselves for the first time since 1945.
With a population of 9,400,000 it is believed that Sweden could mobilize up to 940,000 troops should it be necessary. The permanent force only numbers about 8,000 + the annual intake of conscripts which I believe makes the total size of the Swedish military around 15,000 troops total.
