Sweden: Second-generation immigrants commit more crimes than first-generation
Integration in Sweden has failed – children of immigrants commit more crimes than first-generation immigrants. This is how a new report from the Crime Prevention Council could be summarized, the first in 16 years. It is also stated that immigrants from the Western world have as low a crime rate as Swedes, while in some immigrant groups as many as one in five individuals become criminal suspects over a four-year period.

There is more than twice as great a risk (2,5 times) that a foreign-born person will be suspected of a crime than a domestic-born person with two Swedish-born parents. Children of immigrants, however, have even worse numbers – despite the fact that they were born in Sweden, they are suspected of crimes more than three times as often as Swedish-born inhabitants with Swedish parents.
If one compares the latest report from 2005, it is an important difference, as the most criminal group 16 years ago was the foreign-born group. Despite billions invested in various integration projects, the situation has thus deteriorated because crime among immigrant children has clearly increased and is now higher than that of the parent generation.
Number of Swedish criminals declining
The Brå report also showed that the proportion of Swedes in Sweden was steadily declining. In 2002, the proportion of domestic-born with two domestic-born parents was 79 percent, while it fell to 68 percent in 2018. At the same rate as the proportion of Swedes in Sweden has decreased, their proportion of crimes has also decreased.
In 2007, the group accounted for a weak majority of all criminal suspects, 54,1 percent. In 2010, the share had decreased to 51 percent, in 2014 the figure was down to 47,5 percent and in 2018 it had dropped to 43,2 percent. Now it is instead the third of the population with an immigrant background that accounts for the majority of criminals in Sweden. Some 58,6 percent of the criminal suspects in 2018 were either born abroad or had at least one parent born abroad.
Among domestic-born with two domestic-born parents, the proportion suspected of crime was 3,2 percent during the period 2015-2018, while it was 5,9 per cent in the group of domestic-born with one foreign-born and one domestic-born parent. The corresponding proportion among domestic-born people with two foreign-born parents was 10,2 percent and in the group of foreign-born persons 8,0 percent.
Black Africans at the top
However, counting all foreign-born in one and the same group was misleading. Immigrant Westerners were only marginally more criminal than Swedes, while the proportion of crime suspects born in the Middle East was 11,9 percent, North Africa 14,8 percent, Afghanistan and Pakistan 15,8 percent, and sub-Saharan Africa 18,7 percent.
Thus, almost one in five individuals born in Africa was a black criminal suspect in these four years alone.
To this must be added that children of immigrants born in Sweden were even more prone to crime than their parents. For North Africa, the share was 20,1 percent and most of all for sub-Saharan Africa with 20,6 percent.
If one excludes women and only looks at men, the statistics become even more frightening. Men born in Africa stand out, where about 20 percent were suspected of crime during the four years surveyed. For men born in Sweden but with two foreign-born parents where the mother comes from Africa, the figure is over 30 percent, that is almost every third individual.
African women also stand out
Among women, Africans were also the most crime-prone group, with women born in Sweden of African parents contributing to 7,5 percent of criminal suspects.
Brå tried to find an explanation for the differences by taking into account disposable income, education, housing conditions and other so-called socio-economic factors. Despite compensating for a number of factors, it never succeeded in explaining away the strong over-representation of African immigrants.
High propensity for sexual violence given little attention
One detail that was given unusually little attention in the report’s written review, but which is stated in the statistical data, is sexual offenses and rapes. It is stated that there was more than three times as great a risk (3,2 times) that a person born in Sweden of two immigrant parents would be suspected of a sexual crime. The figure for foreign-born is just as large.
Once again, there is an abysmal difference between different regions of origin, where the propensity for crime is, as before, topped by the group “Rest of Africa” with an excess risk of 11,4, or eleven times as high as for a Swede. For the EU and Western Europe outside the Nordic region, there was a risk of 0,96, marginally slightly below the Swedish default value of 1.00.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.
