‘Sweden is the most dangerous country in Europe,’ writes Germany’s top-selling newspaper

The former model country has turned into a real nightmare since 2005 as violent crime has exploded

After examining data from the Swedish Crime Prevention Council, Germany’s Bild newspaper writes that “Sweden is the most dangerous country in Europe.”

Bild, which is Germany’s most widely-read and best-selling newspaper, analyzed a study related to fatal gun violence, with the data showing just how dangerous Sweden has become.

“In the EU, an average of eight people per million people are victims of fatal violence. In Sweden, the number in 2020 was twelve people per million inhabitants. When it comes to the victims of firearms, the difference between Europe and Sweden is even greater. In the EU, an average of 1.6 people per million people die from gunshot wounds – in Sweden the figure is four, almost three times as many,” Bild writes.

While murders have been steadily falling in other European countries, in Sweden they are rising. Much of the crime is fueled by migrants and migrant clans, which operate in the country’s biggest cities.

California mother arrested for using $4.9 million police shooting settlement to purchase guns for son’s gang

Authorities managed to make a total of 14 arrests and seized 12 different firearms as a result of cracking down on the Calwa gang, including a gang member’s mother for supplying guns.

Earlier this year, Christina Lopez received an almost $5 million settlement after the police killed her son in 2017. Now she’s been arrested for allegedly buying guns for her son and the California gang he was a part of.

The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office revealed they’ve been after the Calwa gang for a few months now, after one of them murdered someone back in July. What started as detectives at the crime scene where a 52-year-old man was shot and killed, turned into identifying a stolen video and surveillance video of potential suspects.

Police were able to take that information to arrest 18-year-old Richard Aguilar of Fresno, California. A SWAT team had to breach Aguilar’s home because he barricaded himself inside, but he ended up surrendering.

Rapper ‘Mo’ Fayne Sentenced to 17 Years in Prison for Misuse of PPP Loans

Rapper Maurice “Mo” Fayne was sentenced Wednesday to 17 years in prison for crimes including the misuse of millions of dollars in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

Fayne, who appeared as Arkansas Mo on a season of VH1 reality show Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta, must also pay $4,465,866 in restitution for his role in a federal bank fraud that saw him squander his ill-gotten gains on a lavish lifestyle.

The loan funding was supposed to be used to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest payments, lease payments, and utility payments, as specified under the PPP rules.

Fayne, who lives in Dacula, Ga., was arrested in May 2020 on charges of making false statements on his application for the PPP funding as well as bank fraud and conspiracy and wire fraud related to a Ponzi scheme, as Breitbart News reported.

Oakland police overwhelmed with July Fourth violence: ’12 hours of nonstop chaos’

Simultaneously, police monitored a sideshow of more than 300 cars and 200 spectators roaming across the city. Some participants were armed with guns and pointing lasers or throwing objects at officers, the chief said.

Oakland police responded to seven shootings, two deaths and a huge sideshow overnight on the Fourth of July in “12 hours of nonstop chaos,” Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong said Monday.

The seven shootings took place from 6:30 p.m. Sunday until 10 a.m. Monday. Six were in East Oakland and one in North Oakland. One victim was a 16-year-old boy.

One shooting led to the city’s 67th homicide this year after a 48-year-old man died on the street just after midnight. Another man died of blunt trauma to the head, the cause of which is under investigation. A female victim was in grave condition Monday and not expected to survive.

The level of life-threatening violence was so high that the ambulance system was inundated and “took a considerable amount of time to respond,” the police chief said.

Criminal justice professor says calls to defund the police ’emboldened criminals’ (Video)

Police departments have reported increases in violent crime in U.S. cities over the last year

A Michigan criminal justice professor believes calls to “defund” or “abolish” policehas “emboldened criminals” as U.S. cities report record spikes in violent crime.

Police departments have reported increases in violent crime such as homicides in U.S. cities over the last year, leading some officials to question the effectiveness of cutting funds from police departments and allocating them to other community services.

“I think the verdict is no longer out. … If we make calls indiscriminately to defund the police. We’ve been playing with that natural experiment over the past year or so, and the results are back in, and it’s not good for our communities,” said Scott Wolfe, Ph.D., an associate professor at Michigan State University’s School of Criminal Justice.

800+ Arrested, Nations Carry Out ‘Most Sophisticated’ Crime Sting In History

“They are almost certainly using those encrypted platforms to flood Australia with drugs, guns and undermine our economy by laundering billions of dollars of illicit profit.”

An operation has efficiently executed that lead to the arrests of hundreds of criminals around the globe, according to The Daily Wire.

“The operation by Australian and European police and the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation ensnared suspects in Australia, Asia, Europe, South America and the Middle East involved in the global narcotics trade.”

“Over 800 suspected members of organized crime gangs were arrested and $148 million in cash seized in raids around the world. Tons of drugs were also seized.”

“ANoM could only be found on phones bought through the black market, which had been stripped of the capability to make calls or send emails.”

“The phones could only send messages to another device that had the app and criminals needed to know another criminal to get a device.”

Minneapolis residents suing the city, say ‘defund the police’ movement caused rise in violence

A judge is expected to issue a ruling as earlier as later this month.

A Minneapolis couple and their neighbors have filed a lawsuit against the city and its mayor, alleging that both parties have failed to keep residents safe amid a spike in crime over the past year, Fox News has learned. 

The lawsuit was filed in August but stalled in the courts amid the high-profile case of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer whose killing of George Floyd, a Black man, set off nationwide protests against police misconduct and racial injustice. 

The lawsuit accuses the city of operating outside a charter that requires a minimum threshold of police officers per citizen in Minneapolis. The petitioners say the city council’s move to defund the police, have caused officers to quit in droves, which in turn has contributed to an escalation in crime. 

Doug Seaton, who is representing petitioners, told Fox News, his clients are long-time Minneapolis residents who are deeply engaged in the community.
