 Knifeman held Swedish commuters hostage while stabbing people – police downplays incident
By Emma R.   9 February 2019



Swedish commuter train travelers between Uppsala and Stockholm were trapped in a train car with a knife-wielding man last monday.

According to testimony, the man used pepper spray inside the train car and ordered travelers to sit still while he stabbed two people.

The drama took place at 5 pm in a commuter train car filled with travelers between Uppsala Central Station and Arlanda Airport

When the doors were closed at Knivsta Station just before Arlanda Airport, a man pulled out a knife, Aftonbladet reports.

And the police response was "There was nothing to see here,move on."

To SOME here, the Swedes (Austrians, Italians, Americans, Brits etc.) that want less entry by outsiders, are "nationalists," which they equate with "white supremacy," Nazism, racism, etc.)

BTW Sweden takes in the largest percent of any nation in Europe.

And the US admits by far the most Legal immigrants, compared to other nations.

Nothing was said about the identity of the perpetrator.  And we all know why that is....

So what? Their country,their laws,and there is nothing wrong with any nation deciding they want to maintain their historical ethnic base. I think this has changed now,but at one time not so long ago Japan didn't allow anyone not Japanese to establish citizenship there.  Lots of people there on long-term visas,but if they weren't born there or their parents weren't Japanese,they didn't get citizenship.

Not all nations want to be cultural or racial carbon copies of ever other nation,and that is a good thing. People that grow up speaking different languages and living under different customs tend to see problems under a different light,and can sometimes come up with what most of us would consider to be unconventional solutions.

Viva La Difference!
