Sweden Down for Count?
If you have been keeping up with the news, you know that despite the impassioned denials of the government, Sweden appears to be going down for the count. Imagine if this were your daughter.
‘Rapist is a victim too’
The school principal, who wishes to remain anonymous, says he “struggles” with the case and thinks about it “every day and every hour.” He’d furthermore like a “dialogue with the government” on the issue.
When addressing parents’ concerns, the principal says he didn’t feel the need to officially notify them since:
“there is no obligation for a school to go out and announce that there’s a student who has been convicted of rape.”
He then suddenly starts talking about “taking the whole picture into account,” and the interview takes an even odder twist:
“All three youths involved were our students here and all three are, in a way, victims in this case. The boy who was convicted has gotten a pretty harsh punishment, which turns him into a victim as well.”
Keep in mind the details of that “harsh” punishment.
Ajuub was convicted to 100 hours of youth service plus 24 meetings with a social worker “in order to learn to make better decisions,” while the 15-year-old is considered by Swedish law to be too young to be held criminally responsible and has thus been set free.
