oh swede!

  • Me: So, what's going on where you are right now?
  • Swede Friend: Another person just got sent to prison for raping a kid.
  • Me: Jeesh. Well, at least they'll be in prison where they can't hurt anyone else for a long time.
  • Swede Friend: 4 years isn't a long time.
  • Me: Huh?
  • Swede Friend: Oh, you don't know? Our rape prison sentences are typically only 2-6 years. One guy only got 22 days of community service.
  • Me: ...permission to speak freely?
  • Swede Friend: Granted.
  • Me: No pun intended, that's screwed up.
  • Swede Friend: I know.
