Non-citizen Stefan Nystrom's extensive criminal record has caused him to be deported to Sweden. Nystrom wasn't keen on getting kicked out of Australia, fighting all the way to the High Court, which provides this summary of his criminal activity:
Mr Nystrom has a "substantial criminal record"[65] within the meaning of s 501(7) of the Act. He appeared in the Children's Courts on 10 separate occasions between 6 April 1984 and 19 December 1989, on charges including theft, burglary and criminal damage. During this period he was placed on good behaviour bonds, periods of probation and supervision orders. On 14 December 1990, at the age of 16, Mr Nystrom was convicted of aggravated rape and intentionally causing serious injury for which he was sentenced to nine years imprisonment, with a minimum term of seven years. He has subsequently been convicted of a large number of other offences, including arson and various offences relating to property damage; armed robbery, burglary and theft; various driving offences, including reckless conduct endangering life; and offences relating to the possession and use of drugs.
If a ne'er-do-well is going to be deported, a socialist paradise like Sweden seems the ideal destination. They should be happy to give him counseling and whatever other support he needs to help him sort himself out while they provide him a guaranteed income for life. I mean, isn't Swedish socialism all about being caring and sharing? Unfortunately for Nystrom, the Swedes don't want him.

Nystrom is not unwanted, however. Progressives want him brought back to Australia because his numerous crimes weren't really all that bad (it's not like he's a terrorist or anything) and because he has, you know, lived in Australia for such a long time and doesn't even speak Swedish and, anyway, Australia's immigration laws are "capricious and apparently utterly nonsensical."

I, for one, will sleep better tonight knowing the government is actively pursuing and kicking out criminal losers like Nystrom. More, please.

I think it'd be better if we dumped him on an iceberg further down south. That'd be my choice of preference for such criminals. Its free and the Polar Bears needs some company.

What's the problem with not speaking Swedish? If the reports we hear are correct then lots of people in Sweden don't speak Swedish nowdays.
