In one Swedish city, police held a press conference this week to warn the public that women can no longer expect to be safe in the streets as normal.
The implications and meaning of this are potentially monstrous. First, the fact that the police avoid telling people the most important aspect of this issue, who it is who is doing this.
If you cannot name the attackers then you cannot warn people and they have won.
One may also question the degree of civilization when the agents of law, and who have a monopoly on the use of force cannot guarantee the safety of women to this degree.
If it can happen there, it will happen here, wherever here is for you.
If it isn't already.
