So the Swedish Police published racist propaganda then? Who would have thought...

I read the report and replied to you back then. The report didn't even mention the word 'no-go'. It simply stated that there are neighbourhoods with higher crime.

I rather live in The Bahamas/Dominican Republic/Mexico/Panama/Colombia/Brazil/South Africa than in Belarus/Libya/Equatorial Guinea/Saudi Arabia/Iran/Bangladesh/Brunei.

First group has a homicide rate of at least 16.0 per 100k, Second group are all under 4.0 per 100k.


Freedom > Safety

You have a very weird misunderstanding of the difference between liberal and conservative, OP.

I can't think of any poll or thread that demonstrates (??) the misunderstanding, inconsistency, and manipulative nature of contemporary American politics better than this one.

I live in Brazil. I think this is enough for replying the question.

My country only interests DM in the context of gypsies and beggars, which isn't the "violent blond slavs" - the type Farage likes.
British teenagers flee for their lives after getting caught up in gangland shooting that left mobster dead and two others injured in Bulgarian bar | Daily Mail Online

That was literally published 4 hours ago. Seems like those "popular tourist spots" in Bulgaria are no-go zones as well.

Are you seriously comparing shootout between former convicts to a no go zone? What's next, maybe comparing Bulgaria to Alepo, Syria...

Also, you're trying to disprove what I wrote by giving yet another dailymail link 0_0? Consider this: you won't find article in wikipedia proving "benefit tourism" from Bulgaria/Romania, yet you'd find such article about no go zones in Sweden.

Edit: here even examples:

And here "prove" about the benefits tourism from Bulgaria/Romania:

Country 2 ("conservative"): Almost like a dictatorship. A cruel law system with death penalties such as the firing range and decapitation, and punishments such as lashes. No free speech allowed (at least controversial ones that go against the government). You must dress or act how the law wants you to (especially the women). No LGBT or women's rights. But here, you're safe as you can be, just as long as you abide to the laws. You can leave your door open all night and no one would rob you. Hardly any murder or assaults.

Pick your poison.
Depends. Which country takes better care of the poor/orphans/needy? Which one starts more wars? Which one helps more countries?

Not trying to belittle your country but I would feel far, far safer in Sweden than in Bulgaria or Romania, even if the crime rate is somehow higher in Sweden (though I doubt if that's the case).
