Swedish police tell women not to walk alone out of fear they will be raped by refugees

StaffRebel Columnist

Police in Östersund, Sweden are defending their comments in which they advised women not to walk alone after at least six reports of violence against women in the area since February 20.

“...The police are going out and warning women against travelling alone in the city. We have seen a worrying trend,” regional police chief Stephen Jerand said. “This is serious, we care about the protection of women and that is why we are going out and talking about this.”

Police were also investigating an alleged molestation of a 10-year-old girl at a bus station.

The advice for women to not walk alone was met with criticism.

The city's mayor, Ann-Sofie Andersson, told Swedish TV, “The solution can never be to not go out because of such a warning. We have very many women who work in home and social care at night for example. What are they supposed to do?”

“We are not limiting anyone's freedom. This is purely factual information. We went out with warnings and some have interpreted this as that we forbid women to be out in town and that's completely wrong,” the police chief told the TT news agency in retaliation for the backlash.

It would appear this kind of head-in-the-sand, blame-the-victim attitude is alive and well in Canada:
This can only get worse here.
It would seem the politicians – who tell the police how to do their jobs – are going to continue to ignore the obvious (and documented) threat from the criminalized sociopathy of Islam, increase the numbers of Islamic invaders in the ruling class’ orchestrated invasion of Islam to our country and all Western countries, and while implementing sharia law, continue the further curtailment of our unalienable right to life and protection thereof…
The question is – is this ‘politician-stupidity’, or is this something much more sinister and devious?

Cant we just right off Sweden, look they are not Sweden anymore let them fend for themselves.

Well hey they might tempt these small dicked Muslim scumbags and then the cops may have to do their jobs.
Still we should not be too hard on the cops , they are doing what the higher ups are demanding.

@ Mary Auld
feminism is inclusive, especially the type of intersectional feminism as practiced in Sweden. the swedes have many male feminists in positions of power also. perhaps you believe the feminist government of Sweden is doing all it can to protect women. I do not and firmly believe they should do more to protect women specifically. I do not believe that qualifies as misogyny. furthermore, my heavily decorated military career negates any sense of inferiority which you may be attempting to project upon me. I believe you are suffering from cognitive dissonance and should refer to the progressive stack to understand where a native guy like me is coming from. I believe the emotional reward you have given yourself legitimizes your obvious disdain for cisgendered members of the opposite sex. your Ad Hominen logical fallacy and attempt at shaming language shows your true inability to grasp some very basic concepts which may be crucial to presenting a sound argument.
i understand your virtue signaling may come from a place of legitimized hatred towards men , however, YOU CAN’T EVEN SPELL MY NAME CORRECTLY. perhaps you should readjust your expectations of yourself before posting on this forum.
or is it just that time of the month again…?

Coming soon to Canada, sunni ways my friends, sunni ways…..

What a shame. The Swedes opened their border and hearts to people that were supposed to be in dire need, and this is the thanks, women afraid to go out because of violent immigrants. And if anyone speaks out about it, they are immediately discounted as rascist. This is not about race, it is about feeling safe in your own society, it is about having respect for not only women but the laws and cultural values of the country in which you live. New arrivals to any country must be made aware of that countries laws and customs and expectations, if they cannot agree to live by those, then perhaps they should either not be welcomed or choose somewhere they would be more comfortable.

Great comment as always, but looking at the larger picture and on into the distant future, I think every western culture should add a clause to their respective Charters that when the state is incapable of protecting it’s citizens, or acts contrary to their safety, all gun restriction laws are automatically suspended!

Accuna…..your dislike of women and your inferiority complex are showing. You’re a muslim I guess?

No! This is where you are incorrect. Accuna is saying it is time for woman’s lib to start standing up for women and not kissing the lefties ass / ISIS ASSES.

So Mary you might want to re-read the comment before posting that type of crap.

Women are advised not to go out alone? What about Women who have to go out alone just to get to work. This advise will soon be the norm in Canada.

One good thing the Swedish Government just did, was to deport 80,000 of these Muslim Bastards. Trudeau will probably allow them to come to Canada. He is going to permit Muslims to become Police Officers, so if a Woman is being raped, calling the police will not help, they will just line up to take their turn.

Islam is the bane of civilization but Trudeau will invite them in, saying that they will adapt and become normal human beings. What he really means is that we will become Muslims or become extinct.

Here police are admitting they are incapable of providing safety/security to citizens. OK, Europe now has Algerian rape rates and rape culture, and police/government/courts which protect this culture so now what?. I would advise any woman to be escorted by a capable male who will reflexively protect/defend you (like a male Rottweiler or Bullmastif), or if this is not possible carry the same defensive weapon the police do when they are facing the same element which they are proposing lone women face unarmed – even though they admit they can’t protect you.

The MO in these muggings and rapes is ganging – you routinely face multiple attackers. Select a defensive weapon that can neutralize multiple attackers – like a police dog or a large OC fogger – if it’s good enough for police it’s good enough for you.

When your government abandons the sheep to the predators, the sheep need to grow teeth.

The real “worrying trend” is the Police refusing to accept the reality of the situation and get down and dirty and prosecute these scum, Rape-u-Jihadists. There is not doubt in my mind that when these types of assaults become common place in Canada, we can count on the RCMP & the Liberals to take the same tact and blame the real victims rather than confront the migrants. Perhaps Trudeau can say a prayer on his next visit to his Mosque for the many innocent ladies who are being subjected to this violence.

That is the kind of thing that would happen in Canada! TruDOPE and his gang would put the onus on victims and blame them rather than address the root problem which is…..too many muslim men who have NO respect for women. They think they can come to other countries and treat women in the same abysmal way they treated them in their country. Can’t see our government asking them to change.

Gordon Tupper – the victims need to be armed, to level the playing field. Ladies, make sure you aim below the belt, and destroy the enemies tool of humiliation.
commented 2016-03-08 14:06:23 -0500
Brilliant, they are putting the onus on the victims to protect themselves instead of stamping out the problem. How far you have strode from the great country you once were. Evil.

. . . and when seconds count, the Swedish police will be only minutes away.
