“‘We have become completely overwhelmed,’ one policeman with over 30-years-service with Gothenburg Police told MailOnline.
‘We have given up with narcotic crime. We just don’t have the resources.’
Instead officers are trying to fight back the explosion of violent street crime that has erupted in recent months.
‘I have worked in Gothenburg for over 30 years and I have never known anything like it,’ the officer told MailOnline.
‘I will not let my children go into the city after 2pm and especially not at night.
‘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,’
‘There are 20 robberies in Gothenburg every day – usually with violence or the threat of violence.
‘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 £4].
‘In the summer there were mass shootings with lots of people killed, including a little girl.’
He added the city streets were now at the mercy of gangs of young men mainly from North Africa. …
‘They will do anything to get money – steal a person’s wallet, iPhone, jewellery. And then they will attack their victim and kick them half to death.
‘Drug crime has gone through the roof. Every drug is available on the street nowadays, even in broad daylight.
‘And when the police arrest someone nowadays the suspect often fights back – with a knife or a screwdriver. This is not something we have seen before.’”
