Now the Swedish police have made it official: Malmö is the most dangerous place in the country.
It reminds me of those government studies that prove that a mother’s devoted love is good for a child’s mental development — spending people’s tax dollars to discover the obvious. But here it is anyway, from The Local:
‘The most dangerous place in Sweden’
The inhabitants of a part of Malmö have the dubious honour of living in the most dangerous place in Sweden, according to a new police survey.
The Södra Innerstaden, or south-central, district of Malmö is the most crime-ridden place in Sweden, police say.
Residents of the area responding to a police questionnaire complained of rowdy gangs of youths, vandalism and litter.
Open drug use is a “very evident problem,” residents said, as was street drunkenness. Women being groped was also a common complaint.
Police blamed the area’s poor reputation on the density of pubs and clubs.
“It’s an area with lots of bars and entertainment establishments. There are people around in the area all day,” said Ulla Ardermark, Malmö Police commander, to Metro.
Ah, those “youths” again! They sure do pop up all over the place.
If it weren’t for all those bars, none of this stuff would happen; the youths would just stay home and spend their time sharpening their knives and tossing Molotov cocktails at one another.
So… Malmö is filling up with dangerous people. What shall we do with them? Let’s pay them to go home!

Failed asylum seekers to be paid to go home
Failed asylum seekers who are hiding in Sweden will in future be entitled to state support to return to their homelands, the government has said.
Migration Minister Tobias Billström has said he wants to widen the scope of benefits available to help people living in Sweden illegally to return home.
In an interview with Svenska Dagbladet, Billström said he wanted to be active in encouraging people who were not entitled to be in Sweden to return home. Everyone who has had an asylum application rejected should leave the country, he said.
The new ‘re-establishment aid’ will be introduced on 1st August. Through the programme failed asylum seekers will each be entitled to 20,000 kronor in state support to return to return to countries where living conditions are difficult.
So what happens if the state hands SEK 20,000 to some indigent Somali, and then he doesn’t go home? What are they going to do next? Say “Pretty please”?
He broke the law to get to Sweden. He broke the law by staying in Sweden. He breaks the law when he throws rocks at police cars, or beats up ambulance drivers, or rapes teenage girls, or torches schools in Rosengård.
So what’s to stop him from breaking the law by pocketing all that cold cash and then staying right where he is?
He’s living in Fat City. Why should he leave?
