Parking Tickets Issued on Wrecks while Stockholm Burns

STOCKHOLM (FRIA TIDER). Owners of cars destroyed in the riots fined for parking illegally while police adopt non-intervention policy.

Since last Sunday, May 19, rioters have taken to the streets of Stockholm’s suburbs every night, torching cars, schools, stores, office buildings and residential complexes. Yesterday, a police station in Rågsved, a suburb four kilometers south of Stockholm, was attacked and set on fire.

But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Löfving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.

”We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait,” elaborated Lars Byström, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department.

”If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us.

Swedish parking laws, however, continue to be rigidly enforced despite the increasingly chaotic situation. Early Wednesday, while documenting the destruction after a night of rioting in the Stockholm suburb of Alby, a reporter from Fria Tider observed a parking enforcement officer writing a ticket for a burnt-out Ford.

The parking enforcement lass apparently couldn’t read/FIND the driver’s proof of arrival at that particular parking spot. No doubt it was carbon based and had gone up in flames with the rest of the vehicle, BUT REGULATIONS ARE REGULATIONS.

Thanks goodness there were no miscreants “throwing rocks” about. THAT would have been terrible and scary, scary, SCARY.

    Sweden has been held up as the jewel of Socialist countries. Well, I guess they have officially run out of other people’s money to spend. – The eventual downfall of all Socialist countries.

    Even in collapse, however, they just can’t stop taking “other people’s money”.

    I’ll wager that every Sweede that had to just stand there and watch their property and neighborhoods get put to the torch wishes they had a Colt Python right now.

    To the Lords of Convention ’twas Claverhouse spoke
    Ere the King’s crown go down there are crowns to be broke.

    From the song “Bonnie Dundee”

    Time for Swedes and Britons and Frenchmen to break some crowns.

    Gunslinger – I suspect rather that the Swedes are angry at them selves for doing/not doing something that made these “youths” upset….

    My Viking ancestors, and for certain my beloved grandfather, are spinning in their graves.

    There have been vigilance patrols trying to stem the violence in Sweden, only for the police to force THEM to disperse, while ignoring the rioters.
