No defence in Dangerous Denmark


In another truth is stranger than fiction story we have the remarkable tale of a young woman escaping her would be rapist in Denmark. In Denmark like here in New Zealand women are not allowed to carry anything to defend themselves with. They are not allowed to carry mace, pepper spray,  a baton or a baseball bat.They are most certainly not allowed to defend themselves with a gun of any description.

Women in Denmark are in a lot more danger than the average New Zealand woman. In many areas they are regularly harassed by asylum seekers and feel unsafe. Unsurprisingly due to the increased rape and violence statistics in Denmark since the mass immigration of migrants,  some of them are arming themselves for protection despite the law telling them they are not allowed to protect themselves.

A 17-year-old girl in Denmark has seen a wave of support after police threatened to fine her for using pepper spray to fight off a sex attacker.

The teenager told police Wednesday evening that she was sexually assaulted by a dark-skinned English-speaking man near a migrant asylum center in central Sønderborg. She said the man knocked her to the ground and tried to undress her before she was able to fight him off with her pepper spray, which is illegal in Denmark, The Local reported.

“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told the Danish channel TV Syd.

The man who allegedly attacked the girl fled the scene and has not been charged. It is unclear if the man was an asylum seeker or refugee.

Numerous readers wrote in the comments section on TV Syd’s story about the incident that they would be willing to pay the girl’s fine, which will most likely be 500 kroner, or $730, The Local reported.

The news comes after several female residents in Sønderborg reported earlier this month that they felt harassed by some of the asylum seekers in the area. A nightclub in the town has gone as far as barring guests if they cannot speak Danish, English or German.

As far as I’m concerned $730 is cheap at the price. Laws in Denmark like the one prohibiting women from carrying pepper spray need to be changed. The streets are no longer safe for Danish woman and if the government cannot protect them they have no option but to protect themselves.
