The Law Is An Ass

When laws are written and enforced in such a way that the victim is the criminal, the law doesn't merit being followed and the government that passed the law doesn't merit being obeyed:
The teenager told police that she was attacked in central S√łnderborg on Wednesday at around 10pm by a dark-skinned English-speaking man. She said the man knocked her to the ground and then unbuttoned her pants and attempted to undress her. 
 
The girl was able to save herself from further assault by using pepper spray on the attacker, but now she may be the one who ends up in legal trouble. 
 
“It is illegal to possess and use pepper spray, so she will likely be charged for that,” local police spokesman Knud Kirsten told TV Syd. 
 
The case has sparked a backlash among some Danes who point to increasing reports of sexual harassment in S√łnderborg and other Danish cities at the same time that police say they are stretched too thin to properly carry out their duties.

I fear there will be a serious backlash sooner or later. It won't be pretty.
