    Malmö Firefighters Demand Police Escorts

    Malmö firefighters demand police escorts

    Firefighters in Malmö in southern Sweden are demanding police escorts on calls. The firefighters have had enough of threats and violence in some of the city's rougher areas.
    After being attacked by stones on a recent call, they are threatening not to take calls to Rosengård without a police escort. They are also demanding shatterproof windows and surveillance cameras on their vehicles.

    Bertil Ahlgren, a spokesman at Jägersros fire station where two of the men worked, told TT that their work situation was "completely unacceptable".

    The firemen were attacked twice last week during calls in the city's Rosengård suburb.

    In one case a youth pelted a fireman with stones, while another fireman was attacked by a barrage of raw eggs. Attila Jensen, district chief for the Jägersros rescue services told TT that they view this very seriously.

    "One shouldn't need to find oneself under a stoning attack when one is out performing one's job".

    Attacks on rescue services staff and police have increased in recent years, but so far there is no central data recording the incidents. Kenneth Carlsson, a spokesman for the firefighters' union described this trend as nasty.

    "We would like to see a central register created so that we could get an overview of all the incidents".
    (...)
    Other more long-term measures include the recruitment of firefighters with immigrant backgrounds.
    (...)
    "The point is to create a better dialogue between the authorities and certain population groups", Per Olof Hallin, project manager at the Malmö College, told TT.

    Overhere in Berlin policemen have Muslim bodyguards...otherwise they wouldn't be able to patrol certain areas anymore. Sometimes they are accompanied by Imams who try to de-escalate violent situations.

    Right, because these assailants are just so distraught that they're not seeing middle-eastern and african muslim emergency workers.

    (a scenario)
    sirens wailing
    Thug #1: (in arabic) Oh look! Here comes an ambulance!
    Thugs #2-3: *snickers*
    Thug #1: (in arabic) When they come closer lets throw these bricks at their windshield.

    ambulance comes within striking distance...

    Thug #1: (in arabic) Wait! Don't attack. They have an iraqi driver. He might be a muslim.
    Thugs #2-3: Looking in awe.
    Thug #1: (in arabic) Ah yes! He is an iraqi muslim ambulance driver. Praise allah!

    The assailants then throw rainbows instead of bricks! Yay for diversity!

    One should read this article and then ask himself how a country that was once a safe haven, a roll-model for all of Europe and an incredibly civilized nation can deteriorate into a ghetto where firefighters need protection because they fear to be attacked by youth gangs.... it's just in-freaking-credible.

    There's no such things as safe heaven, You can walk in any part of ghetto in Europe such as Amsterdam just few miles away from the city , Harlem,etc and often you might encounter the same scenario not just Sweden.
