WOTD: justice

I just read on The Local: Sweden’s News in English, that Ephrem Yohannes, the man convicted of the brutal rape and murder of Elin Krantz, was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his crimes, after which he will be deported from Sweden. He’s also been ordered to pay 600,000 SEK to the victim’s family as compensation, as if mere money could possibly “compensate” her family for her loss.

This is how he has been ordered to pay for his crimes. Whether or not this sentence can be considered “justice” is a another matter entirely.

It seems a rather lightweight sentence to me considering the degree of brutality and ruthlessness of the crimes. Then again I was born and raised in the highly punitive culture of the United States, where citizens demand that lawmakers be as tough as possible on crime. In America, a violent rapist-murderer would receive no less than a life sentence. In some states he might even be sentenced to death. The idea of a violent criminal being sentenced to a mere sixteen years in prison would seem ridiculously lenient to most Americans. Including me.

Still, this is Sweden, where it is believed that every criminal no matter how far gone has the potential to be rehabilitated. I’m not so sure.

I happen to have a different perspective on this particular crime because it occurred practically in my backyard. Elin Krantz’s body was found in the woods next to the public tram stop that I use every single day. I remember like it was yesterday the morning that I walked to the tram stop like usual and noticed that the whole area was cordoned off with blue and white police tape. There were several police cars in the area and my first thought was that they must have found a body.

It didn’t occur to me exactly whose body until I boarded the tram and remembered seeing the notices posted on the inside of the tram stop shelter and on the door of the nearby supermarket. “Have you seen our sister?” the notices read below a picture of Elin Krantz. She went out on Friday night and never made it home. It was then Monday morning. I saw a man on the tram reading a newspaper with the main headline, “Body Found in (my neighborhood).” They hadn’t yet identified the body.

That’s when it hit me. Oh my god. Oh my god. It’s her! The body they found. It’s got to be her.

And sadly, it was.

  1. Let him serve his sentence, castrate him and send him packing from where he came and don’t let that scum back in the country, though castrating him doesn’t mean he won’t continue to be violent. I know prison will never bring Elin back and it seems unfair that the Swedish people have to pay to keep him in prison, I wish in some respects he could serve his entire sentence and then some in his own country’s prison instead of being a burden on the Swedish government.

    Please don’t see this as me being racist because I am not, I would say the same to any person who commits a crime where they will put a drain on a different countries economy.

    • For God’s sake, what is this with “please don’t this as me being racist”?! It was not that long ago that Sweden’s claim to fame was NO CRIME. Wit the advent of Marixist, anti white, anti Christian multiculturalism, and the influx of immigrants who DO NOT share Swedish values, young women like Elin like have been the ones to pay the price for this sinister political agenda and social engineering. Make no mistake, these crimes are racist. Pointing them out, along with their non white psychopathic perpetrators, is NOT racist. It’s called WAKE THE FUCK ALREADY. Sweden, do you love your children? If so, why do you allow their sacrifice for the agenda of Marxists who HATE THEM? Stand up and take your country back.

Words, words, glorious words! Give me all of your words!
