A few days ago, we reported on a Swedish cop who is under fire for speaking out on the problem with immigrant crime in Sweden. On Saturday, Peter Springare got support from a small demonstration in central Stockholm. I have translated the below two articles into English.

Demonstration of Support for Peter Springare in Stockholm

Published 18 February by Mattias Albinsson

Domestic Some 20 persons demonstrated Saturday at Myntorget in central Stockholm in support of Örebro. police officer Peter Springare.

The demonstration was not organized but came together as a spontaneous initiative of members of  a Facebook group, Stand up for Peter Springare

They began to gather around 11-12 o’clock, said a demonstrator who wished to be anonymous to Fria Tider.

“Several people will come, but it won’t be a gigantic demonstration,” he continued.

Local police know the demonstrators , but they are not known to the central (command of) police and do not have a license..

“No, there is nothing that we know,” said Sven-Erik Olsson of Stockholm police to Fria Tider.

However, there were a couple of hundred people demonstrating at Sergels Torg in protest against the deportation of a so-called unaccompanied child refugee from Afghanistan. This demonstration had a license.

This afternoon there was even a demonstration at Stortorget in support of Peter Springare.
Coincidentally, Springare’s statements received corroboration in the form of an armed robbery in the area that he serves.

Domestic: Police in Örebro are now hunting five robbers said to be of “foreign origin” for an armed (pistol) robbery during the evening in the outskirts of the residential area of Brickebacken.

Police received the report of the robbery just before nine pm in the evening. Two young m,ales were robbed of their mobile phones and a wallet on Grankotte Way in Brickebacken, which lies on the outskirts of Örebro. The two young males said that they  rode on the same bus as the culprits from the central parts of the town to the outskirts. When they stepped off the bus, the robbers struck.

There have been  people attacked on buses by a number of perpetrators”, said Örebro Police officer RLC-befell Per Bjurström to Fria Tider.

One of the culprits is said to have been masked and armed with a pistol. After the robbery, the perpetrators ran in the direction of Brickebacken. According to both young men, the robbers were 17-20 years old, average height and were of foreign origin. Police, however, do not know what origin that is.

During the night,  police are in Brickebacken and looking for the perpetrators. It is unclear if the same gang can be connected to other robberies in the city in recent times.
Similar events have happened with a similar number of perpetrators with possible similar description, says Bjurström , but he makes clear that it is too early to connect the incident with other robberies in Örebro.
