It is difficult to stop thinking about Josefin Nilsson's death, and of fury against the man convicted of having assaulted her.
A thought which does not leave me any peace is this: What we see in the wake of the SVT documentary ”Love me for who I am” is something that is often sought but rarely enforced. We see a pure brottsofferperspektiv.
the talk is not conciliatory on the offender. No one mentions that he might also be a victim, no speculate in any unfortunate circumstances, mental illness, substance abuse...
All of this is added to the side with the obvious observation: He has committed and been convicted for acts which are his responsibility, not society or politics, or ojämlikhetens or the patriarchal structures.
What is mentioned is genikulten at the royal dramatic theatre and in other kultursammanhang. There is nothing wrong with the geniuses who burn their candles at both ends and sacrifice themselves for their art, but as a minimum could be that they don't burn others and to sacrifice the people in the surrounding area.
that there is something unsound in this obsession at the royal dramatic theatre. It is like that it is a particular social problem that the right actor abusive and harrassing. It is possible that these geniuses are over-represented in crime statistics, yet they are only a barely detectable ripple if you look at the violence in the surrounding community.
Some notes which have been published in the daily News just this past week: One cut with a sharp object at Medborgarplatsen. Man charged for fatal fire in a terraced house. Woman found dead in apartment – the man arrested for the murder. A detained, suspected of the murder of a man in Trollhättan.
If I say that these acts have not received the same attention as Josefin Nilsson's death, I can be accused of to reduce the. It is the last thing I want. Rather, I'm wondering what would happen if we magnified the other incidents, which constantly occur, which constitute a background noise of violence and blood and death in our otherwise well-ordered existence.
It is the abhorrence that should be the natural. Not indifference.
in other words: How would society look like if the collective reacted just as strongly, every time a fellow human being subjected to a felony? If brottsofferperspektivet could be highlighted as clearly as it is done in the most high profile cases? Look here at the effects: a smashed-up body, a life on painkillers, a family with a forever empty seat at the dinner table, the chronic fear of leaving the home, a room which no longer sleeps, a still painful scar where the knife once again went into.
that should be the natural. Not indifference.
Josefin Nilsson's death has once again created a public opinion about men's violence against women. It is a social problem that can not be highlighted enough. I just wish it could be extended to a rage against men's violence in general, or rather gärningsmäns violence. For the victims of the våldsbenägnas reign of terror is of course far from the only women, and the male victims feel better that they have the same gender as the perpetrator.
kriminologen Nina Rung in a recent conversation about the public rage against Josefin Nilsson expojkvän.
”I have understanding for it, and I can sympathize with that,” she said of the reactions. ”What we are seeing is that the judiciary is not capable of men's violence against women. If we don't do it this way, we will not see any changes at all”.
It is an interesting formulation, it should not just apply to ”men's violence against women”. The judiciary stands in the day too handfallet against many serious crimes, not least the criminal class action settlements, which takes both criminals as totally innocent förbipasserandes life.
if we do not respond, there will be no change. A stronger anger, not just in social media, perhaps this is a necessity for that violence in society will reduce.
Perhaps it would facilitate the understanding of the police conditions, to give more courage to intervene, to testify and give politicians more incentives to invest in security enhancement measures.
is not that we're talking about structures, but that the criminals are put there. Now if you prompt must send a minister to the royal dramatic theatre is the minister of justice more appropriate than his kulturkollega.
