Swedish preschoolers accused of sex crimes

Seven children allegedly held and threatened the six-year-old girl before forcing her to undress and degrading her in different ways.

"It is so terrible I can hardly talk about it," the girl's father told the local Allehanda newspaper.

"I don't understand how such young people can be so evil," he added.

The girl was very upset after the incident. She received medical attention and was left with bruises, cuts and a split lip. According to her father she is in a "deep crisis".

The alleged assault was reported to the police as sexual molestation. The police referred the case to social services as the accused are under 15.

It is not clear which measures have been taken to support the girl since officials have refused to make any statements.

"I neither want to nor can I say anything," Lisbet Sander, head of individual and family care in the Härnösand municipality, told news agency TT.

"We are trying to find out what happened by talking to the pupils involved and with the parents," the school principal said.

The girl's father said that one of the reasons she feels bad is because a teacher at the school asked why she had not screamed when she was attacked.

"Now she feels guilty for not having screamed, despite the fact that the other children threatened her with violence," said the father.

First of all, this little girl and her family need emotional support, love and prayers from their community in order to go forward. Secondly, there is a very serious problem when children have embraced evil at so young an age and possibly may have damaged this precious girl for life. This is a major red flag which signals that parents, teachers and other concerned persons need to come together immediately to address what happened. There is a serious failure obviously, in training these kids who so shamefully hurt another child, as to what it means to be kind and how that old fashioned golden rule has been lauded for eons for good reason. Most importantly, children need to learn how hurting others also hurts themselves as well as all of us eventually. I pray that this father and his little daughter may feel peace and healing without delay. I also hope fervently that the terrible children who hurt her suffer punishment and learn something important about respect and kindness to others before worse and far dangerous acts occur.

Once again Sweden way to victimize your victim in this crime. Whether she screams or not is not the issue. She was held down, beaten and made to remove her clothing alone with who knows what other evil things were done to her. She needs support from the school, the teachers, the police. I pray she receives counseling and all the help she needs. Her innocence has been shattered by this violent act. What the heck is wrong with these kids? This is what happens when there is no discipline, no accountability for ones actions. You can't let Society run amok otherwise the violence will take over.

What a horrific tragedy! My heart and prayers also go out to this little girl and her Father.

One also wonders if one or more of the perpetrators is also a victim? (Since six year olds typically lack the experience to imagine this behaviour, one or more may have mimicked what they have seen and/or heard.)

This school (and its children, parents, teachers, and administrators) need outside intervention.

Hands up everybody who thinks these are "Swedish" kids. That being said their parents need to be punished real bad.

Sweden is a socially sick country in a number of different ways.

Supposedly sexually liberated, yet I've never heard of so many extremely weird and unnatural incidents elsewhere.

The truth is that a vast proportion of the population from very young to very old seem to suffer from a huge variety of hang-ups, many of them sexually orientated.

OMG...my prayers to the girl and family These are future sex Offenders. The police needs to keep their record. I can,t send my daughter to a school with too much muslims. Swedish kids at this age cant do this. We see even in public transport those who can commit this crime. They are generally wild and lacks home training.

Where the F**k were the teachers?? She was made to take off her clothes and no one noticed, if the teacher was within earshot as in she would've heard the girl scream then why didn't she notice this group and at least check on them. People including children often freeze up when they are attacked. Jesus how does the teacher not know this!!

So called sexually liberated Sweden is in reality a very sick society with more cases of sexual hang-ups per capita than just about anywhere else in the world.
