Many have reacted to that the regular police now patrol the subway with automatic weapons. But it is not that anything in particular has happened, it's just about the authority adapting to the new Sweden.
Immigration is now the biggest problem for the police since World War II, admits the authority.
For some time, police officers have been patrolling the streets of Stockholm carrying automatic assault rifles of the type MP5, from the German company Heckler & Koch.
In a post on Facebook, the police now explains that this action is a consequence of last autumn's asylum chaos.
"Excuse me, has something happened?
Over the weekend, we have received many questions from you users of public transport, as we are patrolling with automatic weapons.
Since Sweden last fall raised the threat level regarding terror, in Stockholm there will always be staff with automatic weapons available.
For your security, we have, when we had the time, placed extra visibility in the subway.
Nice weekend." writes the Södermalm police.
Meanwhile, Patrik Engström, head of the border police at the national level, says that mass immigration from the third world is the biggest problem that the Swedish police has faced since World War II.
It is worst for the police in immigrant-dense areas such as Malmö, but when depopulated towns get big asylum accommodations far from the nearest police station, it becomes really difficult to maintain law and order there too.
- This is probably the biggest challenge for the Swedish police since World War II, says Engstrom to Aftonbladet.
Once it was a peaceful country... sad.
