Investigating Swedish Crime Waves

$20,217 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 482 people in 20 months

My name is Tim Pool. I am an award winning journalist who has helped pioneer the use of new technologies in conflict and field reporting. 

The goal of this campaign is to fund a trip for me and my Associate Producer to various cities in Europe, starting in Malmo, Sweden. We will be traveling and investigating the claims of "no go zones" and a rise in crime that people believe are coming from migrants and refugees.

We will be producing DAILY videos about our trip in the form of a Youtube travel vlog at Youtube.com/Timcast as well as tweets, livestreams, and after we finish the trip we will make a medium length documentary about what we discovered.

The aim is to produce this VERY quickly so that we will have a medium length doc (20-30 minues) within the next few weeks. (Though this is a daunting and expensive task)

The money will be used to cover travel, accommodations, food, and equipment costs for the trip.

Typically a trip of this scale would be VERY expensive but we are producing all of this content at a loss because it is something we are passionate about.

As this project is funded by you I will not have to worry about being forced to "take a side" or choose a "perspective" but will be able to deliver our findings exactly as we discover them.

With your support we can dig deep, find the truth, and help make the world a little bit better.

Thank you!

As a Swede, I'm very thankful for this and am looking forward to your reporting! As for Kathleen Busch, Rozann Corser Koistinen Gilbert and Rebecca Schoenfeld Vidas – We have it hard enough with the rising criminality and ghettos, we don't need you spreading lies in attempt to cover it up and gain political points against Trump and to feel good about yourselves. You're protecting violent thugs, rapists and murderers on the behalf of innocent people living in these ghettos (which are mostly populated by ethnic minorities). Here's a link to a translated article with interviews from people living in Rinkeby, on what they think about the violence here: https://translate.google.se/translate?hl=sv&sl=sv&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.svd.se%2Fkraven-fran-rinkeby-fler-poliser-och-hardare-straff%2Fom%2Fupploppet-i-rinkeby "–I have fled my home country once. I will not flee again, says a man who lived in Rinkeby for over 20 years." Here's a good summary from a refugee living in Sweden covering the situation regarding rising criminality in Sweden from immigrants, including sources: https://acidmuncher.wordpress.com/2017/02/20/no-fox-news-trump-arent-lying-about-sweden/

Really!! Trump pretty much lies about everything to prove his point, why waste the money on something that is more than likely just another lie, like 3 -5 million illegal votes, he won the electoral college by the biggest margin since Ronald Reagan, when he opens his mouth it is usually a lie, so this would be a total waste of money. Immigrants are not the enemy, pretty much everyone's ancestors started out as an immigrant. Everyone needs to exercise tolerance and stop the hate speech. This is not what I want my America to be.

There are no no-go zones in Sweden. Compton, Harlem etc are far worse than anything you could ever find in any part of Sweden. Relax. Ask someone who lives there. Zlatan Ibrahimovic grew up in one such "scary" part of Sweden...

Sorry to see Trolls most from the US from the alt right and Trump wing not accepting anything that do not suit their political world view or agenda posting below. Tim is doing what we really need NEUTRAL JOURNALISM ON SITE not you lot mking opinions from what you have read on Fox or Brietbart. I am actually on the ground in Sweden living in one of the so called Malmö ghettos and yes I have blue eyes , light skin and all that. There are problems here and a lot in my area due to gangwar over drugs. Withing 500m of where I live we have had multiple shootings with 3 killed and some seriously injured as well. The most hairy was a gun chase after a guy chasing another by the local shopping centre in broad daylight at lunchtime! I shop there to and so do many others. Last year an failed bonb attempt was made on the local police station too which I heard clearly from my balcony.So please let Tim give his unsanitised version of advents. Having said that the community gets on with life as as in all societies.

Sorry Rachel Large, but this is false and you are a troll! How can I know? No rocket science. Sweden is a small country, we recently became the 10 million citizens. A little larger than New York. But yes, the Swedish media are afraid to hang out single peroner before they have been convicted of a crime, it's true. BUT! If two women were raped by 5 refugees as it had become a bloody rebellion in the media, believe me! Media may be cautious but they are not silent! As Trump wants them to be. In Sweden, we have no dictator who wants to control the media. But we have very cowardly politicians who always want to be politically correct. It is our biggest problem! So I'm sorry, you outed by your ignorance of Sweden.

So many trolls and so little facts. Definitely think Sweden has taken in more refugees than we can handle, and it created many different types of problems. But! To hear Trump and his little troll! Only reinforces Swedes preconception that American citizens are really stupid and ignorant. Of the trolls who wrote comments here? How many of you can point out where Sweden is? Not Switzerland! Sweden: And no. We have not polar bears on the streets.

For those claiming that a spelling mistake above (yotube) means this is a scam: Have you attempted to correct the error by inserting the letter 'u' into your browser bar?

Congratulations on your reporting. I have been watching your U Tube reports for some months now and find them refreshing and judge them to be more informative than those from the large media corporations. I particularly like the series from Sweden. In England the same phenomenon is occurring but I think (hope) to a to a lesser extent than in Sweden. Free argument and debate is being shut down by rolling out, usually unwarranted, terms of abuse such as racist and bigot at the drop of a hat.

You guys are doing such a great job in getting the truth out. Censorship is rampant in Sweden. The Green Party is both insane and dangerous, they are trying to brainwash the masses into cultural suicide. There is too big a diference between Swedish/Western culture and Islam/Muslim beliefs to have mass immigration that works. And I say all this as an immigrant myself, I have NEVER seen such insanity as I have seen here. Good Luck with your mission!
