Looks like the Stockholm police chief’s response to Muslim violence is the same one as Obama’s. If overseeing the torching of his city doesn’t work out, maybe Obama can snap him up to advise on that “smart” and “sustainable” strategy for losing the war that he was discussing.
Since last Sunday, May 19, rioters have taken to the streets of Stockholm’s suburbs every night, torching cars, schools, stores, office buildings and residential complexes. Yesterday, a police station in Rågsved, a suburb four kilometers south of Stockholm, was attacked and set on fire.
But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.
”We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait,” elaborated Lars Byström, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department. ”If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us.”
You would think that getting rocks thrown at them and then clubbing and arresting the throwers is their job… but no. That would be Islamophobic and a contradiction to the Swedish government’s commitment to diversity and multiculturalism.
But if any Swede so much as looks funny at a mosque…
