SWEDEN. I have mentioned “our” no go-zones several times, but never listed the 61 areas that the police call vulnerable areas (such a stupid name). They divide them into three categories:

1. Particularly vulnurable areas – are signified by social problems and criminality that has caused a prevailing unwillingness to take part in legal procedings and where it’s difficult for the police to execute their mission. The situation is acute.

  • Vivalla – Örebro
  • Gottsunda – Uppsala
  • Alby – Botkyrka, Stockholm
  • Fittja – Botkyrka, Stockholm
  • Hallunda/Norsborg – Botkyrka, Stockholm
  • Husby – Stockholm
  • Rinkeby/Tensta – Stockholm
  • Ronna/Geneta/Lina – Södertälje
  • Araby – Växjö
  • Karlslund – Landskrona
  • Nydala/Hermodsdal/Lindängen – Malmö
  • Rosengård söder om Amiralsgatan – Malmö
  • Södra Sofielund, Seved – Malmö
  • Bergsjön – Gothenburg
  • Biskopsgården – Gothenburg
  • Gårdsten – Gothenburg
  • Hammarkullen – Gothenburg
  • Hjällbo – Gothenburg
  • Lövgärdet, Gothenburg
  • Tynnered/Grevgården/Opaltorget, V Frölunda – Gothenburg
  • Hässleholmen/Hulta – Borås
  • Norrby – Borås
  • Skäggetorp – Linköping

2. Vulnerable areas – are geographically defined and characterized by low socioeconomic status where crimals affect the local community. Their effect is mainly bound to the areas social context than that the criminals elaborate to take over the power over and control the community. The situation is severe.

  • Bäckby – Västerås
  • Brandbergen – Haninge, Stockholm
  • Jordbro – Haninge, Stockholm
  • Skogås – Huddinge, Stockholm
  • Vårby –  Huddinge, Stockholm
  • Sångvägen – Järfälla, Stockholm
  • Termovägen – Järfälla, Stockholm
  • Edsberg – Sollentuna, Stockholm
  • Bredäng – Stockholm
  • Hagsätra/Rågsved – Stockholm
  • Hässelby/Vällingby – Stockholm
  • Vårberg – Stockholm
  • Älvsjö/Solberga – Stockholm
  • Östberga – Stockholm
  • Rissne/Hallonbergen – Sundbyberg, Stockholm
  • Fornhöjden – Södertälje
  • Hovsjö – Södertälje
  • Finnsta – Upplands Bro, Stockholm
  • Smedby – Upplands Väsby, Stockholm
  • Charlottesborg – Kristianstad
  • Gamlegården – Kristianstad
  • Hisings Backa – Göteborg
  • Rannebergen – Göteborg
  • Andersberg – Halmstad
  • Kronogården/Lextorp – Trollhättan
  • Fröslunda – Eskilstuna
  • Lagersberg – Eskilstuna
  • Skiftinge – Eskilstuna
  • Råslätt – Jönköping
  • Hageby – Norrköping
  • Klockaretorpet – Norrköping
  • Navestad – Norrköping

3. Risk areas – are at risk of turning into a particularly vulnurable area, but one or more of the criterias are missing. The situation is alarming.

  • Tjärna Ängar – Borlänge
  • Oxhagen/Varberga – Örebro
  • Tureberg – Sollentuna, Stockholm
  • Dalhem/Drottninghög/Fredriksberg – Helsingborg
  • Söder – Helsingborg
  • Holma/Kroksbäck/Bellevuegården – Malmö

The sad part about this is all the normal people who live in these areas and who are at risk of becoming victims of violence or having their car torched. And it’s even worse when you consider that they and the police have been warning about this and asking for help for about thirty years (as far as I know). In 1990 there were three no go-zones in Sweden.

But the politicians haven’t listened. And only a year ago politician Karin Wanngård (S) said that Rinkeby was a fine part of Stockholm when Norweigan Minister of Migration Sylvi Listhaug made a visit and talked to the police. She said it was an unacceptable behaviour for a minister to try to score populistic points in a community that bubbled with life and energy (she forgot to mention criminality). She went as far as demanding an apology on behalf of everybody in Stockholm. Four months later Wanngård made a U-turn after several people got shot to death on the street in Rinkeby.
