I don't think the organized crime that existed in Sweden prior to its massive influx of 'refugees' is responsible for creating 'no-go zones.'

In fact 'no-go zones' were unheard of anywhere in Europe before 2000.

They're still unheard-of outside of ignorant racists.

Sweden's "Vulnerable Areas" - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vulnerable_area

France "no-go zones" for instance:

An early usage of the term regarding Europe was in a 2002 opinion piece by David Ignatius in The New York Times, where he wrote about France, "Arab gangs regularly vandalize synagogues here, the North African suburbs have become no-go zones at night, and the French continue to shrug their shoulders."[22] La Courneuve, a municipality (commune) in the Paris region, was described by police as a no-go zone.[23]

In 2010, Raphaël Stainville of French newspaper Le Figaro called certain neighborhoods of the southern city Perpignan "veritable lawless zones", saying they had become too dangerous to travel in at night. He added that the same was true in parts of Béziers and Nîmes.[24] In 2012, Gilles Demailly (fr), the mayor of the French city Amiens, in the wake of several riots, called the northern part of his city a lawless zone, where one could no longer order a pizza or call for a doctor.[25] In 2014, Fabrice Balanche, a scholar of the Middle East, labelled the northern city of Roubaix, as well as parts of Marseille, "mini-Islamic states", saying that the authority of the state is completely absent there.[26] American magazines Newsweek[27] and The New Republic[28] have also used the term to describe parts of France.

Love how you conveniently excise the bit about CNN and Fox News being forced to apologize after their use of the term was called out as total bullshit. Or about how the police in the Swedish documentary were blatantly misquoted (which of course the dotard-in-chief repeated). Guess that doesn't fit your odious little narrative, does it?

Being forced to apologize by a French government with a PR problem (and real crime and violence problems they insist on overlooking in the name of political correctness.)

Europe has committed suicide.

Say hello to the islamic states of Europe in 30-40 years.

Sounds just like what Trump preaches and wants for us here. NS, you seem to forget what the FBI became under J. Edgar Hoover, don't you? Sure, they put a dent in organized crime, but organized crime is still around in some incarnation today. It's never been wiped out and it will never be wiped out. Greed and corruption will always be around. But the big side effect for our nation was that Hoover created a organization that became synonymous with the abuse of power and authority, specifically that of one man, Hoover himself. The FBI's culture did not begin to change until after Hoover DIED. Sweden needs to be very careful, or they'll repeat our mistake. Sadly, we seem to be making that same mistake all over again.

Did you actually read that page? Because I don't think you understand what it says.

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven wrote:“It would not be my first option to bring in the military, but I am prepared to do whatever is necessary to make sure that serious, organized crime is stamped out.”
The PM sounds just like Donald Trump, or J.Edgar Hoover for that matter. Should the Swedes worry about whether the crime or the wiping out of that crime ends up as worse situation for the people in the long run?
