A reader from Scandinavia sent us the email below.
Just thought I’d bring this little update.
Some time ago, there was a mildly semi-heated debate on this blog regarding the state of affairs in Malmö, and I argued in length against the Swedish “journalist” who proclaimed that my statements were wildly exaggerated etc., etc.
He in turn offered the prospective student a guided tour to some of the hotspots I pointed out, to show him how calm everything really was.
Turns out he is kind of right :) If he tours one of the schools I mentioned it will indeed be very very calm. Actually, it will be completly empty. The school has had so much trouble, violence and crime (etc, etc), that the city now is closing down the entire school(!).
I will not translate the entire articles, but for the sake of documenting it, they are Dagens Nyheter and Bergstrand – Krönika.
Basically, although one is more apologetic then the other, violence and crime were indeed, as I said, rampant.
It should be noted that the school had 95% of its students being “immigrants” (guess who…).
On a side-note, there were officially in 2005 more rapes in Malmö and its county Skane alone then the entire country of Denmark(!).
