    The immigrant driver is in custody after ramming into pedestrians in Borlänge – he deliberately drove into five people. The criminal classifications of his act are an attempted murder as well as four cases of aggravated assault. The Somali has previously been convicted of violence against an official at a social services office, because a grant was not given to him right away.

    On Friday, July 25, after the Somali drove into a crowd in central Borlänge, five people were more or less seriously injured and had to be taken to hospital.

    The police believe that it was not a terrorist act, but that the driver intentionally tried to use the taxi as a weapon against one of the people in the group. That he also drove over other people appears not to have been a problem for him.

    The taxi driver, who is a Somali citizen, was quickly arrested by the police, and on Tuesday, July 28, and prosecutor Eva-Lena Jansson requested that he be detained. According to information from Aftonbladet, the Somali taxi driver wanted revenge on a man for reporting him for sexual harassment of a teenage girl.

    At first, prosecutor Eva-Lena Jansson did not want to comment to any media on Aftonbladet’s information, but in the press release in which she announced the arrest decision, she confirmed that the Somali had an ongoing conflict with one of the victims. Swedish weekly Nya Tider contacted her about the latest revelations about the motive for the act, but she refused to comment.

    Jansson said that she had not yet had time to decide whether to request the suspect’s deportation. “Oh oh oh, I have not come that far yet. It has not even entered in my mind actually.”

    The Somali citizen has already served time for other crimes. In 2014, he visited a social services office to apply for income support. It was 10 minutes before closing time and he was therefore told that he could not get help that day, but he refused to accept it. The staff perceived the Somali as threatening and called the police, who sent a patrol with two female police officers.

    They tried to explain that the office would close and that he was allowed to return after the weekend, but the Somali refused to leave. When the police tried to oust him, he attacked them violently. The two female officers lost control of the situation. Only when reinforcement in the shape of a male colleague was called in, the Somali calmed down.

    When asked if he did not respect female police officers, he tried to pretend that he did not understand that the two women were police officers. The district court dismissed his lie, and sentenced him to a fine of SEK 2 000 for violent resistance against an official.

      How many others like this scoundrel have been admitted to Sweden? He has been in the country since at least 2014, and yet is unfamiliar with the law and customs of the host country? Is it perhaps because he rejects them as mechanisms of an infidel society? His evident unwillingness to assimilate should be grounds for deportation. But as this article shows, Swedish authorities are unwilling, or afraid, to consider this option.

      It is Sweden’s immigration authorities and its courts system that are primarily at fault for letting in unvetted, potentially dangerous migrants, and then refusing to do what is required to protect Swedish society from them through imprisonment and/or deportation. Offenders have a long record, and the authorities are remiss for having done nothing until a major crime is committed. Then officialdom scrambles to backtrack and dissemble. The inconvenient, and unpleasant, reality is that most violent crime by career criminal immigrants could have been prevented had they been deported at the first serious offense.

        Deport at the first offenses if they are intentional and the suspect has an uncooperative or hostile latitude. He will do worse otherwise. To wait for rapes and murders is just wrong.
