Rolleiv Solholm writes in the Norway Post:

The Oslo Police have over the past three years investigated 41 cases of aggravated sexual assault, which resulted in rape. All of them were carried out by non-western immigrants to Norway. .......... Most of the rapists have a Kurdish or African background, NRK reports.

It would clearly make sense for all immigrants to developed countries to be required to to purchase bonds that would indemnify victims of their criminal activities. I suspect the reported rapes are only the tip of a rather large iceberg.

Rape is not the act of an immigrant that loves their new homeland-but someone who simply doesn`t belong there in the first place. Norway is a wealthy country and could easily afford to generous settlements to resettle those who want to leave for any reason before tragedies like this happen.
