Rapes on the rise in Oslo...

We have blogged on this in the is the actual data...

Two out of three charged with rape in Norway's capital are immigrants with a non-western background according to a police study. The number of rape cases is also rising steadily.The study is the first where the crime statistics have been analyzed according to ethnic origin. Of the 111 charged with rape in Oslo last year, 72 were of non-western ethnic origin, 25 are classified as Norwegian or western and 14 are listed as unknown.

Rape charges in the capital are spiraling upwards, 40 percent higher from 1999 to 2000 and up 13 percent so far this year.

Nine out of ten cases do not make it to prosecution, most of them because police do not believe the evidence is sufficient to reach a conviction.

Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen of Oslo's Vice, Robbery and Violent crime division says the statistics are surprising - the rising number of rape cases and the link to ethnic background are both clear trends. But Larsen does not want to speculate on the reasons behind the worrying developments.

While 65 percent of those charged with rape are classed as coming from a non-western background, this segment makes up only 14.3 percent of Oslo's population. Norwegian women were the victims in 80 percent of the cases, with 20 percent being women of foreign background.

It's disgusting when Western countries are too politically correct to even bother defending the vulnerable.

Norwegian vigilantes should take it upon themselves to start sorting out this situation.

Trying to understand what is happening in sex crimes without looking at the full spectrum of sex crimes ensures that you do not understand what is happening. They need to bring in more data: the male victims, the female offenders, the substance abuse rates, the poverty rates, the ...

Seeing what is going on is not all that hard, but it does require that one look at everything at one and the same time. Too many people seem incapable of understanding that.

If rapists were locked away permanently or dead - then there is no need for vast amounts of data.
