“a�?We have become completely overwhelmed,a�� one policeman with over 30-years-service with Gothenburg Police told MailOnline.
a�?We have given up with narcotic crime. We just dona��t have the resources.a��
Instead officers are trying to fight back the explosion of violent street crime that has erupted in recent months.
a�?I have worked in Gothenburg for over 30 years and I have never known anything like it,a�� the officer told MailOnline.
a�?I will not let my children go into the city after 2pm and especially not at night.
a�?There are violent gangs roaming around the streets and the use of knives and other weapons have become normal, rather than a rarity as it used to be,a��
a�?There are 20 robberies in Gothenburg every day a�� usually with violence or the threat of violence.
a�?This week an 83-year-old lady had a gun put in her face when she was mugged on her way to play bingo. They got away with just 50 Kroner [about A?4].
a�?In the summer there were mass shootings with lots of people killed, including a little girl.a��
He added the city streets were now at the mercy of gangs of young men mainly from North Africa. …
a�?They will do anything to get money a�� steal a persona��s wallet, iPhone, jewellery. And then they will attack their victim and kick them half to death.
a�?Drug crime has gone through the roof. Every drug is available on the street nowadays, even in broad daylight.
a�?And when the police arrest someone nowadays the suspect often fights back a�� with a knife or a screwdriver. This is not something we have seen before.a��”
