A Curfew in Rosengård?

I reported last night (and many times previously) on the situation in the Rosengård area of the Swedish city of Malmö. Every night immigrant gangs rampage freely there, setting fires and throwing rocks at police and emergency workers.

Now comes a proposal to implement a youth curfew in the Rosengård district. From a Swedish perspective, this is a radical move, and is bound to face opposition from the Multiculturally-minded Left.

Our Swedish correspondent CB has translated an article on the topic from Svenska Dagbladet:

Demands for a curfew in Rosengård

Malmö riotsThe situation in the housing area Herrgården, in Rosengård district of Malmö, is now so acute that it requires a curfew for youth at nighttime. That is the view of both M [conservative Moderates] and SD [Sweden Democrats] in Malmö.


Anja Sonesson, opposition councilor for the Moderates, want to see a curfew as a temporary emergency act and as a complement to other, more long-term measures.

“If I want effect tomorrow, then I think a curfew is necessary. I also think it’s necessary to implement a ban on visits by individuals that the police have noted to be moving around in the area and causing misery,” she says.

She talks about a ban on visits as a way to stop “individuals who are drawn to and flock around trouble spots”.

Sonesson believes that the situation at Herrgården — with continuous small fires, fights, and disturbances — demands tough answers from society. She thinks the municipality should consider engaging security companies. In proposing the curfew, she is drawing on a model in which where the Herrgården youth under 18 aren’t allowed to be outside after 9 in the evening.

“This is about giving the police more tools to act,” she says.

So far Anja Sonesson has not gained any traction for this with the other non-socialist parties in Malmö. But the thoughts of a curfew have also been put forward by the Sweden Democrats [Sverigedemokraterna], through a petition from the party’s councilor Sten Andersson.

“Since none of the measures implemented so far has worked, it’s time to do something so society can resume control. A temporary curfew in times of unrest can be a solution,” says Andersson to TT [national news agency].

A search in TT’s archives shows that suggestions of curfews for youth have previously been put forward in several municipalities, but have been rejected.

In Växjö the petition was put forward by the Left-party in 2006, who wanted to prohibit youth under 15 from being outdoors without the company of grownups after 11 o’clock in the evening. The petition was overwhelmingly rejected by the majority.

In the beginning of the 21st century similar discussions were burning questions in Lidköping and Norrköping, but didn’t receive enough support to be implemented.

Unfortunately, unless immigration and Islamization are checked and reversed. it is only going to get worse....

It never occurs to anyone to stop importing the kind of immigrants from whom you need to be protected by security guards...

And why is the law not invoked? Give Arab/Muslim immigrants true equality instead of favoritism. Treat them the way white Swedes rioting and burning would be treated. Into the paddy wagons and off to jail for the vandals and arsonists.

These criminals need to be held accountable for their actions like anyone else there. Turn off the spigot of immigration and deport anyone who gets caught being nasty and violent like these creeps are doing. Use whatever force is needed to take back the streets. The longer this problem is allowed to fester, the worse it will become.

Every day we see further examples of liberals being Hoist with their own petards. This is yet one more.

Start fencing those sick neighbourhoods just like in Baghdad.

They might apply for a visa to go out (to "Sweden"). They will never get it once they commit some petty crime. Buy Israeli technique used in Gaza (drones?).

It would be the first step to get them out. Those who will cooperate unconditionally may stay. Let them purge of themselves by themselves.

Let them write lengthy reports about their lives at the police stations. The worst people may be transfered to the North and offered repeatedly the option to quit Sweden for ever. Divide and rule them. Repeated detentions are legal. No imams allowed to interfere in the jail.

Israeli interrogaters would be perfect - speaking Arabic!

In yestarday's Sydsvenkan, the Malmö daily paper, you could read:
We can do no more - the problems are too mightyIt is too dangerous for the police to enter Rosengård. District Police Chief Börje Aronsson declares that the police cannot solve the problems in the housing area....

A realist commented: I certainly fear we are on the way to a Northern Irland situation with security forces, rubberbullets, teargas and all the paraphernalia.

It's hard to imagine the police anywhere saying such a thing - vikings must be turning in their (burning) longships!

Maybe what the police really mean is that it is too dangerous for them to enter this district while ever they adhere to politically correct dhimmi policing methods.

It must be utterly embarrasing for mayor Reepalu that it gets this much international attention. If I had my way I would have sent in military forces and crushed them entirely. No more kid gloves.

A curfew is a temporary and likely ineffective measure. A halt in the immigration of muslims to Sweden followed by a rounding up and identification of all muslims in the country followed by deportations is what is really needed and is what might well happen in the next 5 to 10 years. The political left in Scandinavia has failed, the political right is waiting in the wings.
