According to an internal letter, police in capital city Stockholm are
instructed to refrain from describing suspects' race and nationality,
according to news website Speisa.
So, have you ever compared the rates of crime in the US compared to
Sweden? Apparently, police are far more effective and less lethal than
in the US. Swedish people are on the side of the people and institute
policies reflecting this ideal.
What does that have to do with the description of the suspect?
Nothing of course, as this has nothing to do with solving crimes or protecting
the community from criminals, it’s part of the drive by the Left to eliminate all
data on race/ethnicity so that opponents can’t point out the failures of their

What Is the Truth about Crime and Immigration in Sweden?
“To isolate the effect of immigration on crime, we need data on crimes
committed by immigrants. Obtaining this type of data is easy in the United
States or Denmark, but not in Sweden. The last time there was an official
report breaking down crime statistics by immigrant status and origin was in
2005, for the years 1997 to 2001.
These statistics confirmed that immigrants were significantly overrepresented
amongst offenders, in particular in committing violent crimes. The foreign born
were four times more likely to be suspects in homicide cases than those with
Swedish origin, and 4.5 times more likely to be suspects in rape cases.
Since then, Swedish criminologists and politicians have made sure that no
new statistics have been released. Not a single recent research study in
Sweden has attempted to estimate the causal effect of immigration on sexual
assault or homicide rates. Parliament recently defeated a motion to produce
up-to-date crime statistics based on national origin. We simply do not know
what percentage of sexual assaults or homicides were committed by immigrants
last year in Sweden.
The Swedish criminologists and government officials who adamantly deny the
effect of immigration on crime don’t know these figures, and strikingly don’t
want to know. Americans who are interested in this topic should focus on this
surreal taboo against statistics, not cartoonish exaggerations that falsely
portray Sweden as a war zone.”
