        I was busy today and didn’t have time to post. 😦

        Well done on scooping me though! 🙂

        I went past BUckingham Palace on the way home to have a look at the official notice but the line to see it was long and it was about an hour wait! Took a few photos from a distance though.

    No Crimewave in Sweden – Trump Wrong Snopes
    “most violence in Sweden can’t be linked to asylum seekers. Instead, economic stagnation in immigrant communities that formed decades ago has resulted in intergenerational poverty, which has in turn fueled the proliferation of street gangs. Data provided by Statistics Sweden show, for example, that unemployment is higher and education levels lower in Herrgården, which is thought of as the most dangerous part of Rosengård, a neighborhood in Malmö.

    The city of Malmö is often the subject of news reports about the supposed Swedish crime wave. Deputy Mayor Nils Karlsson told us that crime in these areas stems from Sweden’s failure to integrate previous generations of immigrants. Since the vast majority of the ethnically-Swedish population is college-educated, employers usually choose people with academic degrees over those without degrees, even for entry-level positions — in short, the same disparities that fuel crime all over the world:”

      I guess that’s why Sweden has cut back on refugees?

    NASHVILLE — The police on Monday arrested the suspect in a rampage at a Waffle House restaurant that left four people dead in Nashville, after a tip from the public set them on the trail of the man who had evaded them for nearly 34 hours.

    The authorities announced the arrest of Travis Reinking, just after 1 p.m., in a wooded area within sight of the apartment complex where he lived.

    Mr. Reinking is believed to have moved to Nashville last fall, and police reports show family members expressed concern for his welfare after he exhibited delusional behavior for an extended time, including expressing a belief that the entertainer Taylor Swift was stalking him and hacking his phone and Netflix account.

    Mr. Reinking has had other encounters with law enforcement, including an arrest near the White House last July when he crossed a security barrier as he sought a meeting with President Trump. After his arrest near the White House Mr. Reinking, who lived in Morton, Ill., was forced to surrender three rifles and a handgun to officials in August, just months before he moved to Nashville.

    In the wake of the rampage in Nashville on Sunday, officials could not fully explain how Mr. Reinking regained possession of his weapons. The Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office in Illinois gave the weapons he owned — including the AR-15 he took to the Waffle House on Sunday — to his father, Jeffrey Reinking.

    Sheriff Robert M. Huston of Tazewell County said in a news conference on Sunday that while Travis Reinking “voluntarily surrendered” the weapons on Aug. 24, his father had a firearm owner’s identification card and a legal right to take the weapons. “He was allowed to do that after he assured deputies that he would keep them secure and away from Travis,” Sheriff Huston said. “We have no information about how Travis came back into possession of those firearms.”

    The police in Nashville indicated that Mr. Reinking’s father returned the weapons to his son. He could not be reached for comment on Monday.On Monday, however, Special Agent Marcus Watson of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said Mr. Reinking’s father could face a prosecution of his own for violating weapons laws.
