It's so obvious that crime in Sweden is linked to migration. The overrepresentation of foreigners commiting violence compared wwith ethnic Swedes is overwhelming. When it comes to rape, assault and murder it's a factor of 5-10. Yes, people with foreign background are 5-10 more likely than ethnic Swedes to commit the most serious forms of crimes, and yet the population has been brainwashed to believe its about equal.

The data is hard to find though because our state is covering it up (no official data since 2005 in order to hide it).

I'm more interested in what your conclusion would be if it became clear to you that crime (in Sweden) is heavily caused by immigration. What would be your analysis?

Would it be the socialist analysis akin to "well that has to mean that marginalization and discrimination against immigrants is even larger than we thought! These people are victims!".

So there is no basis to your claim? Got it.

By and large, integration has been a success story there, save for incidents like Monday night's, which have taken place in highly segregated neighbourhoods.

The newspaper Dagens Nyheter analysed crime statistics between October 2015 and January 2016 and came to the conclusion that refugees were responsible for only 1 per cent of all incidents.

That has done little to assuage the perceptions, even among Swedes, that foreigners are culpable for the crime that does happen.

A Pew Research Center study conducted in early 2016 indicated that 46 percent of Swedes believed that "refugees in our country are more to blame for crime than other groups."

I'm a skeptic person Slime, I work with palpable pieces of information and not emotional hunches. I condemn violence and I am not selective on it.
And based on our argument once about French national team, your claims get more scrutinized in my eyes.

"came to the conclusion that refugees were responsible for only 1 per cent of all incidents."
But what's the definition of a refugee in that context?
1% of all crimes were commited by newly arrived asylum seeker, people who hardly aren't even registered in the country yet. It's totally ignoring the other 1.5 million refugees here that came in the last three decades and their offspring. If those were counted you'd get 50% or so.

Okay I found a source in English:


Which are based on official statistics from 2005, mind you that they're extrapolated into reflecting the population makeup in 2015.
