The Invisible Crisis in Europe

…The atmosphere described by the Times and corroborated by local journalists lends yet more credence to the comparisons to violence-plagued nations in the developing world. Wrote the Times: “In Malmo, where a fifth of the 340,000 inhabitants are under 18, children as young as 14 roam the streets with Kalashnikov assault rifles and bulletproof vests.” The country’s prime minister, Stefan Lofven, suggested last week that he might dispatch the armed forces to secure the ghettos. It bears repeating that we are talking about Sweden here, a nation of 10 million people with a per capita income of nearly $52,000.

There is no getting around the connections between Sweden’s crime wave and the country’s immigration-and-assimilation failures.
