This is the Denmark we Danes know, but that the rest of the world has no idea about, because the media portrays us as paradise. But how would you feel if you got raped continuously, and the perpetrator got a year in a luxury jail cell, which resembles a hotel room more than a jail cell?
Jamie Oliver has been outspoken about this problem and how the elderly in the nursing homes are treated worse than the criminals.
Danish jails and prisons are like 5 star hotels according to many inmates, including Dumitru Pacuta,
a tourist-criminal who came to Denmark from Romania to do burglaries because it’s known around Europe that Denmark is a criminal’s paradise.

But back to the main point: A dad got sentenced to one year in prison for having molested his daughter for years.
This is a 46 year old man from Roskilde, according to prosecutor Louise Hansen from the Danish police when she spoke to Ritzau.
It went on from 2006 to 2013. The girl is born in 2002, so she was only around four or five when the dad began molesting her.
The girl’s mother turned him in. The parents don’t live together.
And this is nothing new, this is very standard procedure for the Danish justice system to give obscenely short sentences, which really are more cozy than punishing, seeing how they in the prisons get Christmas gifts (expensive perfumes, chocolate boxes), and they go on trips that are paid for by the tax-payers.
So you might get raped or assaulted, and next thing you know, you’re giving the perpetrator money.
Yes, this even goes for murderers.
