Afghan Asylum-Seeker “Youth” Charged With Attempted Murder For A Knife Attack On A Swedish Police Officer

A culture-enriching “youth” from Afghanistan.

“We do not know anything about any underlying motive”, said prosecutor.

A man faces trial over a knife attack on a police officer in central Stockholm last year.

Police officer Ted Eriksson was patrolling the Södermalm district of southern Stockholm on August 31st when a man ran up to him from behind and stabbed him in the neck with a knife. The officer received minor injuries and was able to leave hospital the same day.

A suspect was seized immediately after the attack, which happened near the Björns Trädgård subway exit at Medborgarplatsen, by another officer who took up the chase.

The man has now been formally charged with attempted murder.

He said at the time that he was 17, but a medical age assessment test has indicated that he was older than 18, according to the prosecutor, who will therefore urge the court to try him as an adult.

He also faces charges relating to assault on August 25th and 29th, as well as making threats against other pupils at a senior high school in Tyresö, southern Stockholm.

Crimes in high school

In addition to the assassination attempt, the man is charged with assault and unlawful threats on August 25, as well as assault on August 29. The events had taken place at Tyresö Gymnasium, against two different students at the school.

“He had begun school at Tyresö high school a few days before. I have no indication that he has been expelled from school; I do not know exactly what action was taken by the school,” said the police prosecutor Daniel Suneson. GatesOfVienna

In Germany Record Number Of Migrants Living Off Welfare

Reality.

It is time to bury the Progressive myth that migrants swarming into Europe are going to replace the continent’s shrinking workforce. Hundreds of thousands of migrants, mostly fighting-age men from Arab and Muslim countries, are now living off welfare instead of seeking gainful employment, German media reports say.

Municipalities and town councils across Germany face severe financial constraints as an ever-increasing number of young migrants go on welfare. An estimated 600,000 of the newly-arrived ‘refugees’ are currently living on the dole despite being young and apparently employable, German newspaper Die Welt writes.

The number of migrants living on the dole is growing at an alarming rate. In 2017, their figure rose by 70 percent compared to that of last year. Die Welt reported the story:

Municipalities warn of the failing labor market integration of the refugees. Around 600,000 refugees are receiving basic income support payment (the Hartz IV benefits), Gerd Landsberg, the Managing Director of Association of Towns and Municipalities, told the newspapers belonging to Funke Mediengruppe. That is an increase of 250.000 individuals compared to the figure of 2016.

Less than 200,000 refugees have taken up occupations that were subjected to social security deductions. “The numbers show that massive efforts must to be undertaken to successfully integrate refugees into the labor market,” Landsberg added.  TruthRevolt

Sweden Forced To Raise Retirement Age To Pay For Influx Of Muslim Migrants

The Swedish citizens were sold the claim that Muslim migration was needed to replace an aging workforce.  The reality is Swedish workers will have to work longer to pay for Muslim migrants.

The increasing costs of population growth in Sweden, driven almost entirely mass migration, have forced the government to seriously consider raising the national retirement age to pay for the additional costs.

Swedish Socialist party Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson announced that the retirement age would likely be raised in the near future in order to offset increased welfare costs, Swedish newspaper Expressen reports.

“Looking at those who start working at 30, there should be opportunities to work longer than 65,” Andersson said.

The minister made her remarks following an economic report from the Local Authorities and County Council (SKL) released earlier this week. The report claimed that the welfare state would grow faster than revenue obtained through taxation due to the dramatic rise of Sweden’s population.

Due to the influx of migrants during the migrant crisis and Sweden’s growing birthrate, the population of the country has expanded faster than almost any other European country.

Welfare State Cost Increases  -Sweden’s welfare cost is increasing faster than its revenue.

The SKL study claims there is a 47 billion SEK (£4.1 billion) gap between current revenue and welfare state costs that will have to be made up either by tax increases or increasing the retirement age.

While migrants are increasing the cost of the Swedish welfare state in terms of added infrastructure and cost for services, many are unemployed and directly on welfare. A recent report showed that while the native Swedish unemployment rate was around 3.9 percent, it stood at 21.8 percent for Swedish residents from foreign backgrounds.

A 2016 report claimed that the one-year cost of the migrant crisis for the Swedish taxpayer could amount to as much as 600 billion Swedish Kronor (£48.3 billion), enough to pay for the national armed forces for the next 14 years.  Stockholm University associate professor Jan Tullberg made the calculations based on welfare and housing costs, education costs and other factors.  Breitbart
