Malmo consists of a 40 percent immigrant population and has the highest percentage of Muslims in Sweden closing in on a quarter of the population.
It has gotten a lot of press because all those Muslims have forced out most of Malmo’s Jews while the authorities have done nothing or blamed the Jews for the problem. Aside from the anti-Semitic attacks, Malmo’s crime rate looks pretty ugly because apparently filling a city with people from the most violent parts of the world doesn’t do much for public safety. Especially when some of those people believe they’re entitled to kill non-Muslims.
A superhero is patrolling the streets of Malmö to stop crime, the newspaper City reports.
Dressed in black, with knee and elbow pads, he has a white “V” on his chest, which stands for “Väktaren” or “The Guardian” and a white mask.
Local police say that as long as he does not hurt anyone or pretend to a policeman, he can do what he likes. “it’s a free country”, police spokesman Kalle Persson told Swedish Radio P3 News.
Speaking to the local paper, “The Guardian” says he wants to stop people considering breaking the law, help police with eyewitness accounts, or step in if he sees a crime like assault or drug dealing going on.
According to a blog that covers real-life superheroes, there’s more to his backstory.
The article reports that Väktaren, a comic book fan, was motivated to become a RLSH last month after he was mugged. The Swedish RLSH has found that his costumed appearance has frightened several Swedes, so he hopes the media exposure will garner some understanding of what he is trying to do.
