New Light Bulbs to Stop Rape Wave
Police step up the fight against the rape wave
Up until now it was impossible for the police to stop the wave of rapes in Oslo. Now chief of police Anstein Gjengdahl has had enough, and wants to strengthen departments related to violence and vice.
There are many reserves ready to be used. The police reserve should gather soon for “Excercise Anti-Rape”, to make Oslo a safer city, says Andre Oktay Dahl…
Monday afternoon, after the complaints of assault-rapes over the weekend, leader of Gjengedahl Council Stian Berger Røisland convened a crisis meeting. Among the initiatives agreed upon was the installation of new light bulbs in the town, and traffic officers and guards to keep an eye out. The changing of light bulbs has already begun.
Light bulbs are the solution, but what are the causes of all these rapes? The Foreigner reports that a Swedish expert thinks Anders Behring Breivik may be one of the factors behind the increase in rapes:
Did Breivik Inspire the Rapes?
Meanwhile, Peter Gill, a Swedish violence researcher, believes Anders Behring Breivik’s attacks could have inspired the rapist(s).
“What is special about Breivik is that he brought an evil thought to life. There are many children who are bullied, aggressive, but they don’t turn thoughts into grounds because of that,” he tells Vårt Land.
He admits drawing a connection between a rise in Oslo’s assault rapes and Breivik’s actions could be “pure speculation” unless it “turns out not to be coincidental.”
The professor also warns that people could be committing a major mistake by thinking Breivik is a mad man.
“Everyone has parts of Breivik inside them. However, he put these together. There are also men in Norway who are quietly impressed by what Breivik managed to do. This could trigger others to cross the line too.”
