Sure, when the chips are down, and it's really necessary, we can always rely on you to be the one to panic and run around screaming...

Which is what Ostriches do (burying their heads is a hoary old myth - like many of his posts)

What do you even know about crime in Sweden, the Swedish police, and Dan Eliasson?

I'm curious. Since mostly you post from a restricted space somewhere inside your own head, demonstrating actual knowledge (or just actual interest) would be welcome change.

(And so far what you have posted in this amounts to figuratively running around screaming in panic.)

Don't get in the way of them smugly declaring their superiority over the "Deplorables".

Actually, I think the reaction you are talking about is much more likely to come out of the public outside Europe.
