On Tuesday presented Brå a new qualitative study based on in-depth interviews with 21 people who all have experience of the criminal environments where skjutvapenvåld occur.
the Purpose is that researchers better understand the skjutvapenvåldets mechanisms – and that it should be able to identify what preventive measures could make a difference.
– It is striking how many of those we interviewed who see skjutvapenvåldet as inevitable. It arms itself by fear, consider that it is constantly threatened and one knows that it våldskapital you can get is vital, in order to make a career in the criminal environment, summarizes the Elin Jönsson study, which she conducted together with investigator Erik Nilsson.
A quote from the report:
”He might already have killed someone, you know. So if you end up in nonsense with him, you should stand and wait, he'll come and apologise, or should he start to mess with me? No, it is only that he take before he takes you.”
the report presented was, among others, Soren Angbo, spaningsledare for serious criminal offences the police authority the west region and Patrik Andersson, intelligence unit police authority South region.
" For us includes not really report any news, it just confirms the picture we have had for a long time. However, it is very important that it is highlighted by the researchers so that we know how we should proceed in order to break the våldsspiralerna, " says Sören Angbo.
According to Brå:s report points to a part of informal mediation between the groups that are in conflict and the bets on the bets that can get the criminal to leave the environment could be the effective measures.Erik Nilsson and Elin Jönsson, the investigators to Brå-report Photo: Ulrika Village
– Both parts are difficult due to these efforts based on that trust, but at the same time, we see that it can have an effect – just society to ensure that real help is available when the kriminelle want to break and jump off, " says Erik Nilsson.

requires great efforts in socio-economically weak areas. But also to the availability of drugs and weapons is reduced is necessary, argue the authors of the report. For it is the market of the drugs and the guns and the money it generates as a control.
Gunnar Appelgren, detective superintendent and one of them who leads a research project within the police of Stockholm to break the cycle of violence, agrees.
– In the short term, should the police stop the criminals, act as repressive. On a 10-20-year term, municipalities, schools, associations, parishes, the whole of civil society to focus its efforts to create better conditions for those who are at risk to opt out of the criminal career in favor of a normal life.

”Firings in criminal environments”. The 21 persons interviewed and thus provides one of as well the police as social services known picture of the mechanisms that control. The way the crime rate is as soon as an everyday process through friends and acquaintances. On the one hand, friendship and loyalty is important, on the other hand krackelerar it quickly as soon as it starts to be about a lot of money:
One of the interviewees says in the report:
”We can be best friends, but when we start to earn big money, you become more greedy and you will become more suspicious of everyone and everything. And so begins the this stuff were all so tight, and his brethren here and there, and suddenly, the only pang...”
" There has been a kind of inflation in the use of force. The ”just” shoot someone in the leg is closest as a ”buffoon” – it is enough as well as not in order to instill respect and rise in the criminal hierarchy, " says Erik Nilsson.
the Society's competitiveness – with existing measures and efforts towards narkotikamarknadens is also extremely low:
”He serves the fan four thousand a week, when I had done it otherwise, do you understand? He thinks: what should I with your help? I get the heck four thousand, I go and eat pizza every day, I am tough, the girls look at me,” says one of the interviewees of a young person who started selling cannabis in their area.
also listed are the interviewed, the inability to describe with words what the conflicts really depends on the. ”Nonsense” is a common description.
– however, It is clear that one perceives that the environment monitors every step you take; that one is under constant threat. The driver, of course, on the cycle of violence, " says Elin Jönsson.
To cooperate with the police or try to get help from the police, are in principle inconceivable for the 21 interviewees. For example, to testify against another criminal, or come up with information that can lead to a conviction against someone for severe consequences:
”I'll have to fuck up a whole family of twenty, twenty-five people to help the system? He is still out there about a year and a half. His gang still hangs out here. It is not worth it,” is just a quote from that report.Link to the graphics
