Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 386 -- Rape In Oslo.
The Brussels Journal points out this bit of disturbing news out of... Norway:
The reported number of rapes in Oslo is now six – 6! – times as high per capita as in New York City...
Indeed, Norway. Rapes are up 40% in Oslo since 1999.
Some interesting demographics behind this rape surge:
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.
Islam: religion of peace, archery, disco dancing, rape, and table tennis.
So, these crimes would probably meet the definition of "hate crimes," to use an American nomenclature. Which got me wondering about hate crimes in the U.S.
Here's a moderately informative table about the sorts of crimes that were categorized as hate crimes in 2005:
Of the three rapes, one offender was white, one was black, and one was unknown (based on this table from the FBI). One of the three rapes was anti-black, one was anti-homosexual, and one was anti-mental disability (according to this table). One took place in California, one in Missouri, and one in Nevada. Now, they don't tell us which offender did what to which victim and where, but matching the information could almost be one of those LSAT logic games.
With three rapes, not a huge "hate" rape epidemic in America, in other words.
Can you imagine the backlash in the United States if, as is now the case in certain progressive European cities, bands of "youths" were raping American women with great regularity? For all the worry about American political correctness, we have nothing on the Europeans.
Incidentally and totally unrelated, just for a few kicks at the expense of the FBI, 204 of the 935 "anti-white" hate crimes in 2005 were committed by...
wait for it...
Who says bureaucrats have no sense of humor?

Waiting for the feminist outrage over here . . . why do I get the feeling that this type of thing will once again get ignored?

Incredible that in the land of the Vikings allow this sort of shenanigans to go on?...

It's worse then you may know
"Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes"
because their manner of dress would be regarded by Muslim men as inappropriate.
"Norwegian women must realize that we live in a multicultural society and adapt themselves to it." -- professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo Unni Wikan
The professor's conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite...

hi. I've been trying to raise an alert on these rapes for two years, since I first saw a few isolated stories raised on such sites as http://www.frontpagemag.com/ in various nations such as Australia, Italy, Germany, and England, how could they NOT be happening in France as well?
The chirping of the crickets is the main response!
But I hear the Feminists are negotiating through the UN with the Middle East to give their blessings on the muslim faith in all their written material on any subject, if the muslims will start condoning ABORTION, in the Middle East.

Certain people torture, rape and murder others and it is not a hate crime! Why not? Because they are members of the protected minority and can't help themselves or "it's a black thing, you wouldn't understand." Bobby Rossi 1984.
