Immigrant Vandalizes Grave of Terror Victim, Attacks Her Father. Cops Do Nothing

There’s never a cop around when you need one. (This is Sweden, so they are hiding under the bed, fearful of being labeled “racist”.) Father of Swedish terror victim attacked by migrant who vandalised her grave – Police do nothing.

Stefan writes that the man was sentenced to expulsion in 2014, but the decision was appealed to the Supreme Court. In 2015, he was sentenced again, for the grave violation, but avoided expulsion.

The trial for repeated violations of Ebba’s grave will be held in March next year. According to the father, the vandalisation continues “on average three nights a week”.

Sweden is toast. But they brought it on themselves. (Well, Angela Merkel helped.) Hat tip to Trigger Reset.

FBI Stops a Replay of the Attack on the Pittsburgh Synagogue and a Separate Attack

Two attacks were stopped. I expect there will be more. An alleged ISIS supporter and a woman accused of planning a terror attack arrested in Ohio.

“This man spent months planning a violent terrorist attack on behalf of ISIS here in the United States, and eventually targeted a Jewish synagogue in the Toledo area,” said U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman of the Northern District of Ohio in a press release. “The charges describe a calculated man fueled by an ideology of hatred and intent on killing innocent people.”

In a separate incident…

In the nearby city of Toledo, agents on Monday morning arrested Elizabeth Lecron, 23, for allegedly buying bomb-building materials such as screws and gunpowder. She is charged with one count of transportation of explosives and explosive material for the purposes of harming others and property.

“The future ain’t what it used to be.”
