Sweden

Well, ever since Ol' Heel Spurs made an ass of himself over The Swedish Catastrophe, his puppets have been working overtime to smear Sweden. If you can make the lie big enough, it must be true.
Here's the graphic - one of them - that they are circulating as 'proof' that Ol' Heel Spurs is telling the truth.
It's all crap, of course, like pretty much anything else he says.


The amount of reported rape offenses has gone up in the last 10 years (2006-15), which the agency said can be partially attributed to new legislation in 2005 that augmented the types of acts that can be classified as rape.
"The effect of the statutory change appeared in the statistics such that the number of reported offences in respect of sexual coercion and exploitation declined in the years immediately following the statutory change while the number of reported rapes increased," according to the agency. In 2013, a rape offense was broadened "to include cases where the victim reacts passively."
In 2015 there were 18,100 sex offences reported to police - an 11% decrease compared to 2014.
Of these, 5,920 were classified as rape. Per capita that equates to 60 cases per 100,000.
In comparison, per capita there were 100 reports of rape per 100,000 people in the UK between April 2015 and March 2016, according to the Office for National Statistics.
The number of rapes reported to police in Sweden decreased by 12% between 2014 and 2015.
Reported offences regarding sexual molestation, sexual coercion and exploitation also decreased.
BrĂ¥ reports: “The decrease seen in these types of offences was in turn preceeded by a rise in 2014. 
“This can in part be explained by a number of cases that included a great many connected offences relating to rape, sexual molestation, sexual cohersion and exploitation.”

They changed the manner in which sexual assaults are assessed, back in 2005. Also, the Swedes have a different way of looking at rape, and are far more likely to report it, than are women in the US.
