Sweden Sees Spike in Sexual Assault Cases Over the Last Five Years
The number of sexual assaults in Sweden is at record levels, according to the Criminal statistics agency Brå.
Over six percent of women in the country have been victims of sex crimes in the past year.
This percentage has been climbing since 2013. In 2016, 4.7 percent of women said they were victims of sexual assault and then in 2017 this spiked to 6.4 percent.
“Between 2006 and 2012, the level was relatively stable, but since 2013, the proportion that claims to be exposed to sexual offenses has shown a clear increase,” according to the Brå agency.
Cases of rape specifically have increased by 10 percent this year compared to 2016 where over 7,000 cases were reported.
“The number of reported rapes and sexual offenses have increased by 10 percent and 8 percent (reaching 7,230 rape cases and 21,500 sexual offenses in 2017 respectively). Over the past decade, the number of reported sex-related attacks has increased by 34 percent. Only 11 percent of rape cases are solved, and even fewer result in criminal convictions,” writes Sputnik International.
“It is important to keep in mind that sexual offense is a crime category that encompasses a wide range of crimes. Everything from events such as violent sexual comments, to very serious crimes, such as rape,” said Maria Söderström, an investigator at Brå.
Public broadcaster SVT said that 58 percent of men convicted of rape and attempted rape over the past year have been foreigners.
“When it came to rapes where the victim did not know their attacker, the number of foreign convicts was as high as 85 percent of all cases, with half of the migrants being in the country for less than a year before the attack,” writes Breitbart.
But according to a recent study by the Swedish thesis project at Gothenburg University, over 50 percent of Swedes surveyed blame the victims of the sexual assault.
“In the survey spanning 3,800 people, the respondents were faced with a set of fictional rape situations, including a party rape amid alcohol consumption, and a home rape after the victim invited three male colleagues to her place after a dinner out,” writes Sputnik International.
Surprisingly, the victims were blamed more than given sympathy.
Author’s note: It’s no coincidence that these crimes have spiked following the migrant crisis. Europe’s immigration policy is destroying these small countries. The liberal media is blasting the SVT for its report about the percentage of sexual assults committed by migrants. Not to mention, instead of placing blame on the migrant criminals, the victims are being blamed.
