Some people in the comments saying that immigrants are the main cause of relatively high crime rates in Kristiansand. Let me tell you that this not very true. I lived there many years of my life and natives are mainly the cause. Anywhere from a turbulent teenage norwegians to drunken local 50 years old . Here are some official statistics i won't talk much. "In 2018 Of the 163 youths who embarked offense first half is 42 immigrants or Norwegian-born to immigrant parents. This represents 23% of the total number. The decline in the number of young offenders apply primarily the oldest group from 15 to 17 years. Kristiansand has several 14-year-olds than 17-year-olds who commit offenses. Girls make up more current through increased use of threats and violence." Yes there are refugees, yes they commit some crimes here, but not the main reason. Please people have your facts right.

If you think Europe is bad as safety goes, then you should go to Albany, GA USA. It is the most dangerous city in fact in the world, and it has nothing to do with illegal migrants. All too often in our case , its our own citizens (blacks) and some whites killing, robbing, and rapping our own. The police and the politicians there are clueless on purpose all for sake of money, power, and self fame. Dothan AL USA, on the other hand is a far different cry from Albany. It is one of most safest cities in the world to live in. It's almost as safe as Marietta, GA. where I grew up. In Dothan & Marietta, we have almost about the same amount of migrants from middle eastern and African countries as certain European cities like Kristiansand Oslo, Stockholm, and Paris, and yet we don't these same concerns about the crimes that are rampant in those European cities. Yes we have had terrorist attacks by Islamic extremist in many US cities in the past, and most likely will in the future, yet the overall crime rate and culture have always been steady. Many other US cities like Detroit, Chicago, Patterson, NJ. and Albany, Ga have always had crime problems long before migrant problems started, but we are doing it to ourselves. I totally agree with you, the problems with the migrants in Europe is a big concern that needs to be addressed, and its going to take more than just the politicians there, regardless of party affiliations to solve it there. We keep bombing other countries in the middle east & certain African countries and it's gotten no where but here. The solution have to start with us. More constructive & positive action is needed to build those countries out of poverty, and more social opportunities is needed for those third world countries. We have to remember where the IMF, and the World Bank is headquartered, here in New York. That should tell you whose controlling the financial strings of really all of the countries in the world. If we start from there, then maybe it will solve the migrant problems in not only in Europe, but the world. We just have to get to the very root of the problems.

Isn't safe town.
Is one very dangerous place. The same with rikenby in Sweden, and Malmö.
The reason that happened in whole of city terrible things and crimes is because of refugee's. I never understand where they found money for volvo which cost 90K euro or more and huge apartment's or big villas.
Who pay for them? ( taxpayer's)
That was the reason why I left and move back to my homeland. North Europe is under control of Islam and gangs from middle east. Refugee's and other immigrant's in Norway walking around all of the day and searching for troubles (doing nothing) they never worked and will never find jobs!
Young women's feeling unsafe and felt unsafe at night or during of the day inside of trains or buses.
Some false comments from leftist and immigrant's made me feel sad.
" there is no abused " really? In hospital of town are a lot of reported about violent crimes and rapes. Nurse's with hijab and doctors that could not speak Scandinavian language or good English. The same in Sweden. Doctor's with very bad swedish and bad behavior( from middle east)
I do not know why someone trying to write fake news here! But Norway and Scandinavia is not one beautiful country or paradise is one very dangerous place and ruled by Islam and mafia's.
If someone have any question should check the numbers of Europeans that left from Scandinavia and crime reported. Check the number of unemployment in Scandinavia ( are refugee's) and why people needed to pay them with 700 euro per kid, free education, apartment's, free tickets,food, and plus money for education. 1000 euro for education per month, 700 euro per kid, money for tickets, for apartment's, plus money for food and gym.

I came to Norway as an expat, because of the Scandic life and nature, to find the last paradise of the old Europe, but my goodness, what a mess did I find here. Temporarily living near immigrants, I wonder how they support their large families and buy nice cars while doing... well, little. Is it because Norway is also a welfare paradise? That explains the high taxes. Not nice to know my tax money is abused instead of used for a useful purpose. I know I'm a foreigner myself and can leave whenever I like, but I like the Norwegians too much not to warn them to become like the other European countries.

Are foreigners or natives responsible for high crime in this part of Norway

"Who do we blame for allowing thieves, criminals, and drug dealers in our once beautiful heaven on earth?"

It's the Jews, we, the Western people are the enemies of the jews for 2000 years, they decide to exterminate us now.

I am afraid to walk to school or to ride my bike. I am always thinking that I will be kidnapped. I am afraid of the refugees in my neighborhood. They are loud, disrespectful, and always picking for fights. I wish that Norway would close their borders and stop bringing trouble to this lovely paradise. Norway, my once beautiful country, what has happened to you in the last ten years? Who do we blame for allowing thieves, criminals, and drug dealers in our once beautiful heaven on earth? Send them back... Send them back... Make Norway great again for our children and grandchildren.

I love Norway, especially Kristiansand. However, in the last 12 years, Norway has become like Brooklyn. Schools, Malls, busses, and streets are cluttered with people from all over the world. So call inclusion and Multiculturalism. There are too many people taking advantage of the Norwegian social service, and it is very sad, unfair and shameful.

When I first came to live in Norway, I did not see many dark skin people. Since the War in the middle east and Africa, Norwegians are just accepting too many people who will never be able to contribute to the Norwegian society, especially people over 45 with a huge family. In addition, there are many ethnic groups (refugees) who will never be able to find work. Therefore, they have no choice but to continue to abuse the free money that is given to them.

If the Norwegian government does put a STOP to taking in people in Norway, I think that very soon youths will cause a revolution. They want their country back. Some of these foreigners are only committing crimes such as selling drugs, fighting, stealing and causing havoc. Why should such a beautiful country as Norway be destroyed by the hands of those who Norway welcomed to their country? Although I am a foreigner, I would say that it is time to take back your country and stop opening your doors and hearts to foreigners. They are draining your resources.
