Armed Police to Escort Joggers in Swedish City for Protection

Residents of the Swedish city of Oskarshamn will now have the option to be accompanied by armed police officers while out jogging.

Oskarshamn police inspector Peter Karlsson said the programme was designed to ease the insecurities of those who wish to go jogging after dark. Karlsson, who came up with the idea for the programme, said police would form jogging groups and all those who were interested in joining the officers were welcome, SVT reports.

“We will adjust the pace entirely to those who come,” Karlsson said, noting the officers would jog as well as walk with residents who wanted to join.

Karlsson said that he had heard of many residents feeling insecure in the city: “It does not happen so much here, but people are influenced by events around the world and feel unsafe when it’s dark.”

The police inspector’s comments mirror a report from 2016 which stated that close to half of women in Sweden felt “very unsafe” at night alone in Swedish cities. According to the report, conducted by newspaper Aftonbladet, a further 43 per cent felt uncomfortable in Swedish cities even in the daytime.

    Why doesn’t the article state why women are so afraid in the night and even in the daytime? Could it be that the Swedish women are afraid of becoming the next victim in the rape capital of the world? The rest of the world knows the Swedish men certainly won’t protect their women (although neither will their government or police).

      Very sad state of affairs when traitorous Liberal politicians have more concern for illegals than their own citizens
