Surprise! A large majority of gang leaders and dangerous criminals in Sweden do not look Swedish
Dangerous criminals in Sweden - Screen grab
An investigation by Swedish newspaper Expressen into the country’s gang leaders and dangerous criminals shows that crime and a migrant background seem to be strongly related.
Expressen took note note of police surveys and has now published a unique review of the more than 400 most dangerouscriminals in capital city Stockholm.
62 leaders in Sweden’s capital are reported to control 19 criminal networks linked to the new violent gang crime wave in Stockholm.
In the main list we find names like: Jeffrey Ong, Ahmed “Manolo” Mohamed and Hamid Taki. Of the 21 names only 4 appear to be Swedish or at least Scandinavian: Anders Stenson, Thomas Elgstrand, Harris Österdahl and Dennis Österdahl.
It’s not a big surprise to see migrants and organised crime being connected. Last year a Swedish police officer, named Peter Springare, already uttered his frustrations about migrant crime.
“Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohammed, Mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again Christopher… what is it true? Yes a Swedish name snuck in on the edges of a drug crime. Mohammed, Mahmod Ali, again and again.!
“Countries representing the all the crimes this week: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can’t be sure because they don’t have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they’re lying about their nationality and identity,” Springare said.
