Örebro, Sweden - Swedish Police Officer Peter Springare is facing possible criminal charges for "incitement to racial hatred" after posting on Facebook about a majority of the crimes being committed by migrants.
Peter Springare posed that he's been on the job for 47 years, and he just doesn't care any more and is going to speak his mind:
"Here we go; this I've handled Monday-Friday this week: rape, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, rape-assault and rape, extortion, blackmail, off of, assault, violence against police, threats to police, drug crime, drugs, crime, felony, attempted murder, Rape again, extortion again and ill-treatment.
Suspected perpetrators; Ali Mohammed, mahmod, Mohammed, Mohammed Ali, again, again, again Christopher... what is it true. Yes a Swedish name snuck on the outskirts of a drug crime, Mohammed, Mahmod Ali, again and again.
Countries representing the weekly all crimes: Iraq, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can't be sure because they don't have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they're lying about your nationality and identity.
Now we're talking just örebro municipality. And these crimes occupies our utredningsförmåga to 100 %.
So it looks here and has been like for the past 10-15 years."
After the Facebook post was made, it quickly went viral, drawing the attention of Swedish law enforcement.
According to SVT news, Springare is under investigation for the criminal charge of inciting racial hatred. The officer will continue working until it's determined if his post amounted to a criminal violation.
"It is a crime in the Criminal Code and I have decided to initiate a preliminary investigation of the crime," says Maria Sterup, Chief prosecutor of the Special Prosecution Office in Malmö.
While America allows people to openly incite violence against law enforcement on social media with no repercussions, talking about the migrant crime rate apparently constitutes a hate crime in Sweden.
