Those High-Spirited Swedish Youngsters

A group of thirty or so rambunctious “Swedish” young people engaged in some midnight pranks in southern Stockholm last weekend. Late Saturday night and early Sunday morning these mischievous culturally enriched “youths” chased the police off their turf, throwing stones, fireworks, and Molotov cocktails, and also torching a few cars.

Oh, well — boys will be boys, you know.

Many thanks to Ted Ekeroth for translating this news report from Aftonbladet, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


00:09   The areas of Rågsved and Hagsätra, in the southern part of Stockholm,
00:13   experienced unrest on Saturday evening.
00:16   Gökholmsbacken in Rågsved was the most chaotic area, where about thirty youths
00:20   chased the police away using firecrackers and Molotov cocktails.
00:26   The person who sent this video to Aftonbladet lives in the area, and says
00:30   that he was watching TV when he heard sirens and a loud bang.
00:38   Here you see a police car backing away into the crossing, and the car then
00:42   drives into the image again where a Molotov cocktail comes flying.
00:57   When the police leave the scene, about thirty youths come running.
01:19   The source says that the police fled, and the youths continued
01:23   to throw firecrackers and Molotov cocktails.
01:28   Many inhabitants worried that the car fires would spread to other vehicles and houses nearby.
01:44   The police think the rioting during Saturday evening in Rågsved and Hagsätra was planned.
01:50   At first, one police patrol was attacked with a Molotov cocktail,
01:54   and later a patrol present in a park was attacked with stones and firebombs.
01:59   The police also found prepared stockpiles of stones and ready-made Molotovs.
02:03   Ten persons were arrested for “violent rioting” during the night between Saturday and Sunday.

  1. Maybe Sweden needs a feminist domestic policy to accompany feminist foreign policy. That’ll fix it.

    • They have a feminist domestic policy already. Evidenced by the very sensible and hugely effective police strategy of running away when the youths come a-whooping and a-hollering and thus giving control over the streets to the lawless, violent mobs so they can commit mass arson.

      What do you imagine will happen to the ten youths arrested for violent rioting? Do you think they’ll see some prison time? I predict they will rather be required to attend counseling sessions where crop-haired lesbian and pony-tailed homosexual counsellors will attempt to ascertain their motives. And conclude they are “alienated” by a racist Swedish system and recommend higher youth unemployment payments, more tax-payer funded facilities (free heated swimming pools and a free X-Box or PS3 in every bedroom plus free games hire) to solve the problem. And blame the Sweden Democrats for the youths behaviour.

  2. This will spread, right across Europe- all coordinated as the thugs in ISIS do their part.
    Dear God these liberal idiots have a lot to answer for!

  3. Reminds me of the reporting of terrorist attacks in Israel. Those cars, bombs and knives are so self-motivated…

  4. Pretty much all we need to know, eh? 30 youths chase police away and continued with their violence. Sweden, where are you?

  5. Baron,
    I think where you say “culturally enriched”, you should instead say “culturally enriching”. After all, the vibrant, energetic culture of these youths remains unchanged; no-one is even trying to alter *their* culture. The cultural exchange is all in the other direction. These youths (a.k.a. “yoots”) are generously sharing their own culture with their fellow Swedes of an aboriginal persuasion.

    Here’s a little cultural enrichment for you (a NYC-area student lawyer at court in Alabama):

  6. Viewing “Ramallah-style” footage of high-spirited youths throwing molotov cocktails and burning cars in Stockholm’s southern neighbourhoods makes one think: are they just celebrating Sweden’s bold, path-breaking recognition of “Palestine”? Or celebrating Sweden’s decision to allow any Syrian refugee to make Sweden their home?

    One thing you can be sure of: none of the members of the Socialist-Green cabinet live anywhere near Ragsved and Hagsatra.
