The Stockholm terrorist? You know, the guy who drove a truck through a bus street targeting children (see Stockholm Terrorist ‘Deliberately Targeted Young Children’ and Manhunt For Driver in Swedish ‘Truck Attack.’ Probably Not Methodist…)?
Yeah, he was scheduled to be deported…
A 39-year-old Islamic State supporter of Uzbek origin was arrested hours after the attack Friday, which left four people dead. Police revealed Sunday that the man applied for residence in Sweden in 2014. His application was rejected in June 2016 and authorities ordered him to leave the country in December.
Police put out a warrant for his arrest in February, less than two months before the attack.
“He wasn’t at the address given [to authorities],” police said at a press conference. “If we don’t know where they are we can’t carry out the deportation.”
Stockholm police carried out several raids across the city Saturday. “Around five” people were detained and one person charged with participation in the attack.
If we don’t know where they are we can’t carry out the deportation.
Or, I don’t know, maybe you can try harder? If an ISIS supporter was rejected residency, maybe go out of your way to keep an eye on him? I’m just spitballing here…
Another revolutionary idea. Get paper and pen, you’ll want to jot this one down. Ready for it? Run background checks on people prior to them entering your country. See also: legal immigration processes. See also: not being liberal fluff dinguses of the soon to be blown up variety. See also: protecting your own citizenry prior to allowing the massive migration of mostly military-aged men from a vastly different (and a teensy bit barbaric) culture. When I say “teensy bit” I mean Holy Hell that Place.
Alas, Sweden decided “Nah, let’s not. Let’s win virtue signaling awards from slactivists on worldwide social media, who will make their avatars into awareness ribbons about the plight of civil war and aren’t we just the best people in the whole world for all our compassion, OMG the FEELS!”
Wonder how all the women who’ve been raped by migrants feel. Wonder how the family members of the victims feel here.
