road pirates, who pose as stranded motorists only to carry out robberies when assistance is offered

Heh. That would never work in America.

We will rape the cars and ride off on the women!

I thought that Sweden was some sort of utopia, where crime is non existent (except for that mass murder guy, but that's a mulligan).
It's a downward spiral from here, pretty soon the photos of Stockholm looking like downtown Detroit will start showing up.

The Swedish don't commit much crime, but they have a lot of Eastern Europeans.

I was expecting one of two things.  Either they would take control of big rigs and the driver and demand ransom to free the load, or something like what Vin Diesel did in Fast and Furious (the first one).  This is more like roadside mugging.  This will lead to how half of all Americans drive now, windows up, doors locked and stop for no one.

"On the roads it was a white-line nightmare. Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice. And in this maelstrom of decay, ordinary men were battered and smashed. "

Or like me, a small noose that is securely fastened to the seat frame and long enough to capture a hand if necessary.

Aye, we be a right nasty batch.  We're the only true vikings left anyway.  We raped the women and killed the sheep.  It was those Swedish bastards that killed the women and raped the sheep.

Good question. Bandits can just as much have a romantic feel as pirates, like Robin Hood.
Maybe they're Somalian or something.

We have those here too, but we call them highway patrol.

/They really hate it when you call them highwaymen.

There are gypsies/east europeans who tries to stop drivers and then sell gold, which probably is gilded lead or something like that.

Well they tried to stop my cousin's BF's brother when he were out driving his "pilsnerbil" (wreck). He just ignored them. Why they tried to stop a car that looks like shiat stuffed with a bunch of drunk blokes and try to peddle their worthless junk we just couldn't understand.
 
2013-07-09 08:19:22 PM  
Except the mass murder happened in Norway.

This is an old type of crime in the USA. also common in the US before dashcam,  were the old pull up beside the driver and point at their tires and the bumper thumper rob and dash.

I wasn't thinking turks. I was thinking about thugs from former Soviet satellite states that tend to be low men on russian mob org charts.

Are you saying there's a bunch of people of Turkish ancestry in Sweden? To be honest most of what I know about Sweden comes from the crime mystery novels which make up their own special category of Swedish Detective novels in the bookspace.

With all of the overt racism towards the Turkish in Europe, I naturally assumed that you were talking about them when you said, "Eastern Europeans". It's similar to how Americans blame crime and economic problems on "Mexicans".Since Russia is mostly in Asia, I made this assumption. I apologize, however, you really should be more clear.

Not much need for an apology. My knowledge of local issues is 90% crap.
