Peter Mangs

Today Peter Mangs was given a life sentence for two murders and five attempted murders. He has been ordered to pay damages of over 1.1 million kronor (127,000 Euro).

In 2003 and between 2009 and 2010 Peter Mangs allegedly shot several people with dark skin and non-Swedish appearance in Malmö, Sweden, in imitation of John Ausonius who shot several people between 1991 and 1992. Mangs is accused of killing two immigrants back in 2003, making the serial sniper approach seem like an inefficient strategy of armed resistance for militant nationalists, though he caused widespread panic in Sweden.

In comparison, Mohammed Merah killed 7 people using a point-blank headshot approach, similar to the execution style used by Anders Behring Breivik. Merah relied on a scooter to quickly disappear after each execution.

Mangs has denied guilt and subsequently the court proceedings were rather uneventful.
