Some of you may remember that I posted earlier saying Norwegians blame foreigners for the surge in rape rates, particularly Muslim immigrants are blamed. You may also remember I said from my experiences and various sources that weren't quite able to piece together a full picture, that I believed there was some fishy statistics at work. I said there is too little convictions and too little rape cases make it to court in Norway and that with Norwegians being hung up on maintaining fake appearances (called the Hycanith effect by many ex-Norwegians) that I suspected some douchefaggery in there somewhere.
An institute that specializes in the treatment of rape victims has let the cat out of the bag.
Muslims and foreigners do not make up all the rape cases in Norway, they make up all the CONVICTED rape cases in Norway. There is a very important difference there that is pointed out in the article.
-----that the vast majority of rapes in Norway are carried out by ethnic Norwegian men against women with whom they’re acquainted. Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports that many assaults involve domestic violence, date rape or party rape, according to the study.
-----The demographics of the majority of attackers differ sharply from widely held beliefs that rapists tend to be foreign immigrants. In fact, reports NRK, such attacks account for only around 18 percent of the rapes reported in Norway.
-----Police statistics show that between 8,000 and 16,000 persons are raped in Norway every year. Police in Oslo are still dealing with 96 random street rapes in the capital last year, a new record, according to newspaper Aften. While many of the random rapes, called overfallsvoldtekter in Norwegian, were linked to foreign attackers and set off widespread alarm last year, they make up a tiny percentage of the total number of rapes in the country.
-----Only 1 percent of those charged with rape actually are convicted in Norway, reported Dagsavisen, with police dropping fully 80 percent of reported rape cases because of lack of evidence.
-----Newspaper Dagsavisen reported earlier this month that the UN’s committee on women has sharply criticized Norway for its failure to prosecute many accused rapists, its high rate of acquittals and the mild punishments convicted rapists actually get. Amnesty International supports a UN call for new, tougher rape laws in Norway that would be more in line with what Amnesty calls “international human rights standards.”
