“Local police across the region have been tasked with taking these measures, to be there for safety purposes for everyone there – those who work there and those who live there,” a Vastmanland police spokesman Per Agren said.
IKEA has agreed with Västerås store manager to remove all knives from shelves, a claimed “temporary” move that IKEA hopes will quell customer concerns.
Incredibly, the response from IKEA is that they no longer will sell knives in their store!
This is a complete leftist-style caving in. Once you change your completely legitimate practices because of one insane person or ideal, you have lost.
Immediately after the attack by the newly arrived migrants, who shared a room in a government asylum shelter and had only arrived in the country less than four weeks before, Swedish police rushed to protect migrant communities from “dark forces in society”.
“Local police across the region have been tasked with taking these measures, to be there for safety purposes for everyone there – those who work there and those who live there,” Vastmanland police spokesman Per Agren said, as quoted by Reuters.
IKEA itself has now joined in with Västerås store manager telling local media that knives will be removed from shelves, a “temporary” move the chain presumably hopes will neuter the desire some in society feel to murder strangers.
After the stabbing on Monday, the store reopened this morning. News Agency AFP reports Swedish police have been “tight-lipped” over what precisely happened in the store, and have refused to confirm various claims in the local and global media, from the identity of the victims and perpetrators, the exact nature of the murder weapons, to whether it was a beheading. There are unconfirmed suggestions in the fringe press that the killers shouted “Allah Akbar” as they struck.
As reported by Breitbart News last year, IKEA stores are gun-free zones, with even uniformed police officers asked to leave premises by security guards for carrying firearms.
Department of Justice figures show over 500 people a year in the United States are murdered with ‘blunt objects’. Whether IKEA will now seek to take rolling pins and cast-iron frying pans off the shelves on the strength of this data is presently unknown.
