Darn this wasn't my day, it wasn't GOT but GSE. Posting from work apparently isn't very good.

Without going into details, there is a lot of gang activity going in Gothenburg. I don't think there's a big hit in the near future, it's just the same old respect for authority as always. There are things going on at the police departments, so we'll see what'll happen.

Still it sucks to see them Eurocopters being shot at. I've got a friend/partner who often flies them as a passenger, taking photos in the air. Tough to have him grounded for a couple of days...  Wink

Maybe we finally have to stop thinking "It Does Not Happen Here". This story does not surprise me (I lived in Gothenburg many years)...
