Gang violence has become such a huge problem in Sweden that 20 members of the Moderate Party have asked the government to deploy armed forces in some of the country’s most dangerous no-go zones.
Moderate Party politician Mikael Cederbratt led the call to sign a motion which would deploy Swedish armed forces to Stockholm suburbs with large migrant populations. He said, “The situation in our areas of exclusion has deteriorated. The gangs have taken over and the police have had to retreat. Swedish law no longer applies there.”
Comparing the gangs to “cancerous tumors in our country”, Cederbratt stated that Sweden “must declare war on criminal gangs.” He added that there are not enough police to maintain public order.

Cederbratt believes that the military could take on police functions in such areas. “Military police are perfect,” he said. “We also have a group of UN military unions who have learned this kind of work in very difficult situations abroad. If they receive supplementary education, they can work very well under the guidance of a police officer in Sweden.”
A police station was bombed earlier this week in Helsingborg with authorities refusing to rule out potential terrorist links.
