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.

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
