Why is that so difficult to understand? From Powerline:
Swedish police faced allegations of a cover-up Monday for failing to inform the public of widespread sexual assaults against teenage girls at a music festival last summer.
Police hadn’t mentioned the August incidents at the “We are Sthlm” festival until newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported on them this weekend following a string of sexual assaults and robberies on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany.
Stockholm police spokesman Varg Gyllander confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday there was “a large number” of sexual assaults during the five-day festival and that scores of suspects were detained.
He said police should have reported on the incidents at the time “given the nature of the crime.”
It is really extraordinary: there were “widespread sexual assaults against teenage girls” last summer, but the Swedish press made a conscious decision to kill the story.
Gyllander couldn’t confirm the ethnicity of the alleged attackers in Stockholm but said “this involves young men who are not from Sweden.”
Power Line comments:
What I find inexplicable is the European liberals’ lack of concern for the young women who have been violated. In their political calculations, the women do not appear to figure at all. It’s almost like they were all Kennedys or Clintons.
Reality check: It’s quite explicable. Socialist media and police have the right to protect ‘crats from the human consequences of their indulgences, as long as the victims believe in and vote for socialism. It’s somewhat like the stock believing in and voting for the farmer, in return for the promise of clean barns and organic water, and the slaughterhouse is to be out of sight down the road.
