Leftists claim Swedish police is RACIST for stopping gang crime – “they play a role in racist oppression”

Members of the youth wing of the Swedish Left party have claimed that police are racist for working on tackling gang crime.

In an opinion piece sent in to Expressen, they explained how the root of criminality and gang crime in the suburbs “cannot be solved through policing efforts”.

They claim that crime is the result of classes in society, and that which is needed to tackle these problems is more leisure centers and school counselors.

“It is no secret that the police are making it unsafe for people of color.” They write.

In November 2019, police launched Operation Rimfrost, a national major incident operation to tackle gang violence and crime.

According to police, the objective of the operation is to reduce the number of shootings and explosions in criminal environments, reduce the number of people in criminal networks, increase the number of weapons and explosives seized and enhance public safety.

But according to the youth members of the Left party, Operation Rimfrost that was launched by police can lead to consequences such as that suburbs in Sweden can be looked upon with “suspicion”.

Many of the problem areas that we see in Sweden are suburbs such as Rosengård in Malmö and Rinkeby in Stockholm. In 2019 there were 60 areas that were classified as “vulnerable areas”, sometimes referred to as “no-go zones” by some.

But members of the youth wing of the Left party don’t think police can stop the violent crime in the suburbs, because of “racist oppression”.

“The large segregation that we already see in Malmö is going to increase by the racist stereotypes that is legitimized by both politician and the police. The police are therefore never going to contribute to safety in the suburbs, because they place a central role in the racist oppression.”

Their mother party, the Left party, was previously known as the Left Party – The Communists until the year 1990.

They got 8% of the votes in the last general election in 2018.

Last year saw a record number of 257 bombings in Sweden, levels that “are unique for a country not at war”.

“This government has lost control over crime in Sweden. We have seen in recent years how the number of fatalities has increased. Now bomb blasts are also increasing in a way that lacks international equivalence” said Ulf Kristersson, leader of the opposition Moderate party.
