Our Danish correspondent Signe sends a summary of the latest news on culturally enriched rape in Denmark:
It makes you want to laugh or cry.
Danish media are overflowing with Utøya memorials today. However, on page 23 in BT the following story surfaces (I’ve translated the salient parts):
Every other convicted rapist is foreign
Iraqis, Iranians, Turks and Somalis are dramatically overrepresented in Danish rape verdicts.
More than every other time that judges in 2010 found a felon guilty of rape, the convict was an immigrant or Danish-born to immigrant parents, reveal the official numbers from Statistics Denmark. Specifically, 32 with Danish background, 27 immigrants and 7 children of immigrants were convicted in 2010.
Karina Lorentzen from the Socialist People’s Party is shocked and appalled: “It is wildly concerning that immigrants and refugees are so overrepresented […] it would seem that some immigrants have not learned that in Denmark a short summer dress is not an invitation to sex.”
She offers a socialist solution:
“It is worth considering if Danish sexual morality should be taught in the course that immigrants and refugees take when they reach Denmark.”
Adding insult to injury, Karin Helweg-Larsen, senior researcher at the National Institute of Public Health (and also, naturally, a socialist — she is regionally elected for the Red-Green Alliance), explains the numbers thus to BT:
“Judges might have a subconscious tendency to acquit the fancy Hellerup-boy [Hellerup is a rich town with few immigrants – translator] and convict the young lad from Nørrebro. And Danish girls must learn that they should behave differently in relation to people from different cultures.”
