Legal insanity in Sweden

From DR News (my translation):

A child that is being raped, is apparently not being violated in the same degree as a grown-up, and thus should get a lower compensation, says a new ruling by Svea Hovrätt.

The ruling is in a case about a 25-year-old man, who was sentenced to two years in prison for rape of a 14-year-old.

At the same time, he was sentenced to pay 75.000 crowns (about 10.000 dollars - Henrik) in compensation to the girl, plus an additional 10.000 (about 1400 dollars - Henrik) in tort claims. Svea Hovrätt confirmed the prison sentence, but lowered the compensation to 50.000 crowns, says Svenska Dagbladet.

The Court argued, that you cant put the violation that a rape of a minor is, with that of a grown-up.

I knew the ruling Swedish elite was insane, but this is just......

And if the rape happens to the judges child? This is insane.

Because of their higher level of vulnerability, children require MORE protection then an adult.

The assumption is that the adult has more knowledge, and is therefore less likely to get themselves into a bad situation.

Gosh, maybe this means that as children get progressively younger and younger, they should be less and less protected under the law.
You could even kill an unborn baby in the womb with zero consequences!
Oh, right....they already allow that.

This is merely a logical progression of the abortion argument.....

What planet do these morons come from?
