Sweden: TV reports paints gang of 4 migrant rapists as..victims.

(Stockholm) Swedish police on Tuesday arrested four boys between the ages of 15 and 16 for a rape committed in the city of Malmö on the 3rd February. That rape was one of many which has beset the city this past month and no doubt the police must be happy at apprehending one of the gangs concerned. However the TV report on this arrest by SVT the Swedish national public TV broadcaster has angered the country, why? Because they painted the rapists as...victims. In the two-minute report. People from the social services and the police are interviewed as stressing that children who commit such crimes are always victims. Göran Eklund, from SVT issued a reply to the growing criticism:

"With this report, we wanted to draw attention to the fact that the suspected offenders are very young. We interviewed the police and the social services who work with this and they shared their thoughts. Our intention has never been to belittle the reported gang rape…. In retrospect, I can see that the report would have been improved if the affected woman's perspective had been included. We will complement our report with that perspective,"
What is it with liberals, who whilst bemoaning President Trump for words he said years ago, remain silent on actual rapes carried out a few weeks ago.
