After Trump called attention to the rising tide of migrant crime in Sweden last week, independent journalist Tim Pool decided to head to Stockholm for a first-hand look at the "crime-ridden migrant suburb" of Rinkeby. Unfortunately, upon arrival Pool didn't get to do much investigating before arousing the suspicion of a couple of masked men who proceeded to follow him through the streets eventually leading to his prompt police escort out of the city out of fear for his crew's safety.
Pool sent out the following tweets about the incident saying that around 2:30 in the afternoon "several men started masking up" and following his crew which prompted the police to escort his team out of town with the warning that “it would get really dangerous if we don’t leave Rinkeby.”
In Rinkeby, 2:30 PM, several men started masking up and following us. Police told us to leave and had to escort us to our car. pic.twitter.com/Tgm2eCSIaj— Tim Pool (@Timcast) March 1, 2017
We weren't filming anyone, we were just talking to police. They started getting nervous as men started masking up around us. pic.twitter.com/FVAXHrtJtK— Tim Pool (@Timcast) March 1, 2017
Journalist Emily Molli, who is traveling with Pool, claimed the pair asked police if they could interview a local but were told it would just lead to trouble.
We asked an officer if he thought we could get an interview from a local, he advised it would probably start trouble.— Emily Molli (@MomesMolli) March 1, 2017
Wasn't expecting such a quick reaction of masking up as soon as we got to the Rinkeby center. Camera was down at my side most of the time.— Emily Molli (@MomesMolli) March 1, 2017
This latest incident follows rioting and looting that erupted in Rinkeby last month after police reportedly arrested a wanted person at a metro station. Several cars were burned out and a police officer and a press photographer were injured in the disturbances.
Of course, as we noted last week, this '60 Minutes' crew got a similarly "warm welcome" from a couple of migrants when they visited Sweden on February 19th...
Meanwhile, after being ridiculed by the mainstream media for his comments on migrant crime in Sweden, with each passing day, it's looking increasingly like Trump was right once again...
Give the public a break - The FAKE NEWS media is trying to say that large scale immigration in Sweden is working out just beautifully. NOT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 20, 2017
