Will recent gang rape have any affect on upcoming elections in Finland?

The gang rapists are alleged to be Somali young men.  Leftists say it has nothing to do with who they are—they just need jobs.  So, what do you do if there are too many low-skilled immigrant young men in your country who can’t find work, not assimilating and committing crimes?  You stop bringing in those young men from Africa and the Middle East and deport those committing crimes!   It is a no-brainer!

From the Global Post:

HELSINKI, March 17 (Xinhua) — Finnish police arrested five young immigrants on suspicion of having raped a young woman outside a suburban railroad station a week ago. The incident has since focused public attention on integration and criminality within immigrant communities in Finland.

It looks like almost every European country has an immigration restriction party that is gaining favor. This is True Finns’s leader Timo Soini.

Finnish media said the five arrested boys, aged between 15 and 18, are of Somali descent. Charges are expected in a month’s time.

A study by the National Research Institute Research of Legal Policy last year indicated higher criminality in some immigrant groups, particularly those with a high ratio of young men.

It is all about income they say, nothing to do with being Somali!

The institute concluded that difference between immigrants and natives was in part explained by the high proportion of young men and low-median income levels.

The institute also said that the criminal involvement of immigrant groups varied considerably. There are groups with crime and victimization rates that are higher than in the majority populations, but other immigrant groups manifest below average offending and victimization risks.

Abdirahim Hussein, a Finnish-Somali candidate for the upcoming parliamentary election, condemned the alleged rape, but rejected the view that the Somali community in Finland would bear even partial responsibility for the actions of five individuals.

News service Uusi Suomi quoted him as saying that the Somali background of the alleged perpetrators was not the real issue. “The lives of the young men simply are not going well,” said Hussein.

While the alleged gang rape took place a month before the general election, political observers are waiting to see how the incident will affect the populist True Finns’s leader Timo Soini.
