Half of Oslo Residents Now Fear Street Crime

The Local, November 19, 2013

More than half the people living in Oslo have had their sense of safety affected by a recent rise in muggings, a survey commissioned by the VG tabloid has revealed.

According to the survey, 50.7 percent of the capital’s residents said that the recent rise in street robbery, which has been heavily reported in the media, had affected their sense of security.

So far this November, there have been 58 street robberies reported in the capital, more than three a day.

Roger Andresen, the deputy chief of the Oslo police, said it was important to put the rise in robberies in perspective.

“The police understand that people feel fear, but it is important to emphasize that the chance of being a victim of robbery in Oslo is still small,” he said.

[Editor’s Note: Two years ago, it was reported that all rapes in Oslo were committed by immigrants of a “non-Western background.”]

    If you play checkers, you would probably suggest booting out all of the foreigners or leaving the country to the new residents, while you look for some other place to live until “they” follow you.

    If you play chess, you would formulate a plan to get rid of the current Norwegian administration first, and replace them with ultranationalists. THEN, you start the Great Purge.

    Cop brass all over play this game of double talking. They say crime (non-white) isn’t that bad when they’re trying to work an angle that relies on you thinking it’s not that bad (e.g. don’t leave the city, visit and patronize the city, have a good attitude about diversity), then the next day they’ll turn right around and say it IS that bad when they’re working an angle that relies on you thinking it is that bad (more taxes to fight crime, more gun control).

    I’m a St. Louisan. I’ve seen this two-card monty being played in front of my snoot practically my whole coherent life.

      The Liberal narrative: When minority crime is the norm, pretend it’s nonexistent. When white racism is practically nonexistent, pretend it’s the norm.

    Lie with dogs and you’ll get dog hair on you.

      Pardon me.

        But it’s a good thing.

      • dd121

        Well, everybody knows that Pugs are excluded from that observation. 🙂

    “Half of Oslo Residents Now Fear Street Crime”

    And I’m betting none of the fearful or the victims are in the government or the press.

    “The police understand that people feel fear, but it is important to emphasize that the chance of being a victim of robbery in Oslo is still small,” he said.

    Which is like assuring a condemned man in a crowd of 100 condemned people he will be executed last in an attempt to get him to quit worrying.

      Wasn’t there some guy from that country that wanted to stop this madness?

    “Antiziganism” yet to come.

    Haven’t those blonde, blue eyed lived like the Swedish and mated with black males for decades?

    Half of Osloians (Osloites?) fear street crime? Are the other half asleep or lying? You people of Oslo want a glimpse of your future? Visit any big American city. You’ll learn what fear is. It’s arming yourself. It’s burglar bars on your windows. It’s staying home rather than going out. It’s nightmares and waking up in a cold sweat. It’s blood on the streets. It’s the constant sound of gunfire at night. It’s the wail of sirens 24/7. Fear? You don’t really know it. But you will. Yes you will.

    • Spartacus

      They’re already ahead of you in many points. Oslo has six times more rapes per capita than New York…

      • bigone4u

        That raises the question of why ALL in Oslo are not afraid. NYC scares me and I would think any sane person too.

      • Kblankenship7

        I don’t doubt the statistic, but could you provide a source? It will help with future discussions. Thanks!

          “Norway’s Minister of Justice from 2001 to 2005, Odd Einar Dørum,
          mentioned the problem in 2001 but has later gone quiet about the issue.
          The reported number of rapes in Oslo is now six – 6! – times as high per capita as in New York City, yet the media keeps warning against Islamophobia.

          According to Aftenposten, the clinic (voldtektsmottak) at the emergency hospital known as Legevakt has never had so many rape victims to treat. Its ability to care for them all is being severely tested. The number of reported rapes has skyrocketed this year.”

        Of course, more blonde, beautiful White women per capita than New York! The only White women left in NY are Jewish! Need I say more?

      Fear is when you find yourself being attacked by two darkies in your dwelling, fear that rapidly mutates into murderous fury. Time for you Norwegians to revert to the kind of Viking Harold Hardrada was. In his own words, “I kill without compunction and I remember all of my killings.” That is what you people will have to learn to do sooner than later, if you wish to exist as a people because the Muslims and their enablers intend to exterminate you as a people.

  • DaveMed

    Are there any Norwegians who can comment on whether the liberals are waking up over there?

    • M.

      I’m not Norwegian, but a piece of news I read a couple of weeks ago featuring an excerpt from a Norwegian TV show wasn’t very comforting. It was about two leftist TV hosts blaming the Norwegian society for the burglary they had just been victim of. And no, the perpetrators weren’t ethnic Norwegians of course, they were north African Arabs.
      That video was painful to watch.

  • Sick of it

    Don’t worry, the Prime Minister will be sure to spend their oil money on poor, third world refugees who need to be saved. The increase in crime will be purely coincidental.

    Norwegian people have an innocent demeanour, so they don’t have much experience yet with hoodlums. To compare Vienna, Austria has about 70 robberies p/d post Schengen Agreement. I don’t know if they ever shut down their Eastern borders yet as they once discussed. Anyone knows?

    • TheLastAngel

      Don’t tell me you’re from Vienna also. It feels weird, I couldn’t talk about reading this site to anybody in real life.

    When white people commit violent crimes, they usually harm people they know behind closed doors—date rape, domestic abuse, crimes of passion, fights over money or drugs—that kind of thing. When we’re talking about spontaneous acts of barbarism and savagery in the public square–gang violence, mob attacks, rioting, large-scale brawls, drive-by shootings, armed robberies and muggings—the kind of crimes that destroy entire communities and strike fear into the hearts of everyday, law-abiding citizens—it’s almost entirely a black phenomenon. If you get attacked by unknown assailant, the odds of the assailant being white are extremely low. You can walk alone at night through almost any white neighborhood in America and feel reasonably safe; walking alone at night through a black neighborhood is almost always cause for concern, especially for non-blacks.

      Arabs and Turks are really good at micro terrorism as well.

  • Massif1

    European nations are being invaded by turd world criminals who don’t know right from wrong. What Europeans need to start doing is exporting their criminals into every African nations that sends refugees. That’s only fair.

    • newscomments70

      They should deport their white liberals to African countries as well. If liberals want to live in a violent, third world country, their demands should be met.

  • Willowville

    They sell billions of dollars of military hardware to Middle Eastern countries, so I guess they agree to take their surplus poor.
