If you’ve read my two most recent posts on this blog, you’ll probably have noticed that I’m feeling very blackpilled in regards to the future of Ireland. Thank God I’ve always got Sweden to compare us to and remind myself that things really could be a whole lot worse.
A shooting at an internet cafe in the southern Swedish city of Malmo has claimed the lives of three men.
Wow BBC, what’s with the heteronormative language being used here? This is Sweden we’re talking about. How can you just assume the gender of the victims like that? Maybe they all identified as women, or perhaps as non-binary. I can’t believe in *current year* there is still such outdated language being used, especially in reference to an incident that took place in a progressive Utopia like Sweden.
Several others were wounded in the centre of the city late on Monday, when at least one attacker opened fire as the victims left the cafe.
“At least one”
So there may be another one still out there? Oh who am I kidding, this is Sweden. There’s probably a few thousand more out there still.
Police said there was no indication of terrorism.
Funny isn’t it how they can dismiss terrorism as the cause straight away, before the investigation has even begun?
Malmo has gained a reputation for violent crime.
Hmm I wonder why that is.
Yeah, I just can’t figure out why that could be.
Monday night’s attack – which occurred near a police station – is being linked to gangs and organised crime.
Witnesses reported hearing about 15 shots fired by an automatic weapon. The gunman is believed to have fled the scene by car.
America Sweden needs Gun control, ASAP.
One wounded man was seen being loaded into the getaway car. Three others were treated in hospital.
You’ll notice how they aren’t giving any description of the shooters at all. This is because the police are banned from doing so, in case it sounds “racist.”
Those killed were aged 19, 27 and 29, police said. At least one of them was known to police, Swedish media reported.
While deadly violence has risen in the Malmo area in recent years, the number of lethal attacks almost halved last year, falling from 30 to 17.
Oh wow, I guess that isn’t so bad then. I guess Sweden isn’t doomed afterall.
