Swede stops car thief, gets 5 years in jail. Syrian child-rapist got 2 months

A Swedish court of appeals yesterday sentenced a 39-year-old man to 5 years prison time for severely wounding a car thief. The vigilant man as well has to pay the ‘victim’ 1.5 million kroner, being the equivalent of some $155.000 in compensation for his injuries.
The skirmish took place early in October of 2015 in Haninge, a municipality in the south of Stockholm. According to daily Aftonbladet, the 39-year-old and a friend were heading home after visiting a local pub, when they heard noises of glass being shattered. The sounds led them to a red Mercedes with a smashed window.
Inside the car, the vigilant Swedes detected a man in his forties wearing a scooter helmet. Their discovery soon resulted in an altercation, after which the 39-year-old tried contacting the police on his cell phone.
The car thief subsequently assaulted the 39-year-old by hitting him in the face. When the victim fought back, the criminal attacked the man with a type of hammer that is normally used for emergencies in busses. Despite this, the vigilante managed to subdue his opponent by getting hold of his helmet and beating him on his head with it.
After the fight, the 39-year-old called 911 and the injured man was arrested. In court, the vigilante successfully claimed to have acted out of self-defense, since he and his friend were both being attacked by the thief, and was therefore acquitted completely.
This verdict was later appealed by the car thief, leading to the yesterday’s sentence. Apparently, the criminal suffered head injuries disabling him for 99 percent. The court blamed the 39-year-old for hitting the criminal when he was already lying down, judging the actions “outside of the scope of self-defense.”
Migrant rapes girls, gets off lightly 
In contrast to this rather harsh sentence, a Syrian serial child rapist operating in Sweden recently got off easily, receiving only two months in jail for his crimes. Just before Christmas, the migrant viciously assaulted a 13-year-old Swedish girl in her own school, raping her both vaginally and anally. In that same period, the man abused a 14-year-old girl as well.
