Sweden has been on the receiving end from some negative press and even a controversial tweet from Donald Trump.
Since loosening their immigration restrictions nearly a decade ago, then assuming a leadership role in opening their doors to migrants in the 2015 ‘Refugee’ Crisis; Sweden has, consequently, witnessed some undesirable side effects.
Sexual assault, robberies, bombings, explosions, violent crime, gang-related murders, etc, have all increased in recent years. Their politically correct approach to collecting crime data has left some superficial bafflement in ascertaining causal factors explain the uptick in crime.

A woman who allegedly stabbed a man in self-defense while she was being raped has been arrested for attempted murder.
In Denmark, a 17-year-old girl was threatened with prosecution for using pepper spray–which was illegal–to ward off a potential rapist.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time the Swedish authorities have seemingly failed to deliver justice to the victim.
In 2016, a wheelchair-bound woman who claimed to have been gang-raped had her alleged attackers released after she was thought not to have fought back hard enough or attempting to escape; implying consent.
43% of rapes in Sweden were committed against children.
Only 1 in 5 foreign rapists in Sweden were deported in 2017.
