On Tuesday, the Daily Mail (UK) reported that “[w]omen in a town in northern Sweden have been warned not to walk alone at night in the wake of a spike in violent assaults and attempted rapes.”
Police from Östersund, a town with a small population of 45,000, issued a request that no women should go out unaccompanied after dark. The warning was issued on the heels of eight attacks in just the past two weeks on solo women by “men of foreign appearance.”
Per the Daily Mail (UK), a police spokesman said that “in addition to the increased frequency, the attacks are also conspicuous as - despite being carried out late at night - none of the perpetrators were drunk.”
“The cases of the sexual harassment and attempted rapes have involved groups of up to three people,” said police chief Stephen Jerand. “What stands out is also that none of these perpetrators have been under the influence."
The warning from Swedish police, sadly, comes as no surprise. Europe has become flooded with migrants who are bringing along their less than desirable cultural baggage. As the Daily Wire reported just yesterday, a young woman, “Nathalie Hager, 29, was left battered and bruised after she fought off what appeared to be Muslim rapefugees right outside of a local church in Nora, an area west of Stockholm.”
Apparently, these so-called “rapefugees” have reportedly taken a liking to a game tahurrush gamea; essentially, the game involves a group of men who team up and circle around a female. The chaotic circle is used as a shield so they can grope of even rape the young lady they are surrounding. The circle is also used as distraction from possible outside observers, making it difficult for these men to be identified and charged with their heinous acts.
So, with this massive problem on Sweden’s hands they issued the aforementioned unusual warning to their women, and unsurprisingly it has been heavily criticized. Local government reps have argued that “women should not have to 'adapt' to abusers.”
“I am adverse to the solution being to tell women and children to sat at home, that can never be the solution for us,” said one local government commissioner.
The Daily Mail (UK) notes that Sweden has “welcomed nearly 163,000 migrants and refugees in 2015, more than any other European nation per capita," adding that a recent UN report “shows that in the first two months of 2016, more than 130,000 refugees and migrants crossed the Mediterranean Sea - more than the total number for the first half of 2015.”
