In the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby, also known as Little Mogadishu (which is the capital of Somalia) due to it’s high concentration of immigrants, erupted into a mass riot last night after police arrested a suspect on a drug related charge.
The first signs of unrest started immediately after the suspect was apprehended by police, around 8pm local time, as a crowd quickly gathered to protest the arrest. As the protesters grew more agitated, rocks were thrown at the police, prompting one officer to discharge his firearm at a protester, yet he missed his mark.
“Several people” threw rocks at the officers, according to police, who later confirmed that one officer had fired at rioters.
“But nobody has been found injured at the scene and we have checked the hospitals and there hasn’t been anyone with what could be gunshot wounds,” police spokesperson Lars Byström told the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
A few hours later a second, larger riot emerged in which cars were set ablaze, rocks were thrown at police and bystanders attacked. A freelance photographer who was taking pictures of the area reported he was assaulted by about 15 rioters, who threw “punches and kicks” to his head and body, resulting in him being hospitalized.
A photographer from Dagens Nyheter said he had been assaulted by a group of around 15 people when arriving in Rinkeby to report on the unrest.
“I was hit with a lot of punches and kicks both to my body and my head. I have spent the night in hospital,” he told the newspaper.
Reports have been filed on three violent riots, violence against a police officer, two assaults, vandalism and aggravated thefts, according to an update on the police’s website.
The Stockholm suburb of Rinkedy was also the site where reporters from 60 Minutes were attacked by local migrants last year as they attempted to report on alleged “no-go zones”, or areas that have been completely dominated by immigrants and even police no longer enter due to how dangerous they have become. Migrant residents of these ‘no-go zones” often attack non-migrants who enter the area, as they consider it to be their “territory” and morph it into a replica of the countries they came from.
One of the camera men was attacked and hit with a clenched fist over his mouth. A bottle was then thrown at the camera.
Meanwhile, another camera man was attacked and punched in the mouth so that a tooth came loose.
The TV team quickly decided to leave Rinkeby, with pictures and film of everything that had happened. They told the journalist from Avpixlat that they have been to Somalia, Syria and Iraq, but they have never experienced anything like this anywhere.
During the second riot, about 7 or 8 cars were destroyed after being set on fire and surrounding stores were looted or vandalized, prompting police to fire warning shots in attempts to disperse the crowd.
A local resident of Rinkeby, who has lived in the area for 22 years, said that he was “ashamed” of the riots and that the once beautiful, peaceful town is now “like living in a ghetto.”
(TRANSLATED) – At 22 o’clock started a new riots in the area when a number of cars set on fire and looted shops in the area.
A shopkeeper was beaten when he tried to protect his shop. In the morning there were data on a total of three injured.
– They received the blows and kicks and seek medical care, says SVT Nyheter reporter Valentina Xhaferi in place in the area.
Fire department had to wait before being able to drive into the area to extinguish fires.
At midnight it was quiet in the area again police said.
“It’s a bitch”
Alejandro has lived 22 years in Rinkeby, and he’s upset about tonight’s fight.
– It’s bullshit, it’s like living in a ghetto, one is ashamed of course, says Alejandro.
The sudden unrest in Sweden comes only days after the mainstream media blasted President Trump for referencing the deteriorating conditions in the country due to their open borders police, a comment he made during his rally in Florida on Saturday. Ironically enough, these latest riots only prove Trump’s point that unbridled immigration from third world countries inevitably results in social disorder, an increase in crime and an unsustainable situation for actual citizens.
This ironic timing of events is eerily similar to what happened in January of 2016 when then primary candidate Donald Trump talked about the rough conditions in Brussels due to immigration, calling the once pristine city a “hellhole“. Both Belgians and the media responded in a similar manner, criticizing Trump and mocking his statements.
Yet, only a few months after making these comments, Brussels suffered a horrific suicide attack on an airport and metro station, resulting in 32 civilians being killed.
Although there’s been plenty of evidence and headlines supporting Trump’s description of Sweden since they’ve accepted open migration, this riot is only another reminder of the end result of unrestricted immigration, and once again Trump has been proven correct in his realistic assessments of conditions in Europe.
