Change in atmosphere in Sweden
Submitted by Josephine Bacon, Jul 15, 2015 02:55
Between visiting Sweden over 50 years ago and visiting recently, there is a huge difference not only in the extremes of rape but in the whole safety of women alone. When I first went, Sweden was one of the few countries in Europe where a woman felt safe to walk alone at night. When I returned, several years later, it was as bad as Italy, Turkey and other countries in which women are perceived as chattels. The mother of a friend of mine was a probation officer in Malmö. Most of her clients were Palestinian Arabs who, I notice, are not mentioned in this article. Rape is bad enough but the crime rate in Sweden has rocketed since it let in the refugees. The reason for this is simple: the sort of people who manage to escape murderous regimes are male, single and often with criminal backgrounds, almost everyone else does not have the wherewithal or resources to get to freedom. Hence the huge extent of criminality among such immigrants.
