I'm sure Sweden would like to avoid any chance of US criminals ending up living in Sweden afterwards...
Bull. This is the WHOLE POINT of "avoiding relapse into crime." Once they're out of prison, they're welcomed back into society.

"My car was stolen. I'll contact the police."
"My money was stolen at gunpoint. I'll contact my insurance company/security."
"I was just raped. Contact the authorities."
"My car was stolen, I'll steal this guy's car to make up for it."
"My money was stolen at gunpoint. I'll just have to steal it back (and swipe that new TV while I'm at it)."
"I was just raped. I'll contact my well-endowed violence-prone brother to rape my attacker's children. All of them."
So let me get this strait... while he's a citizen, submitting to power, freedom of speech is the most important right we have.

Nah, it's more like a gulf than a strait.

Please tell me you've never rented Ninja Scrolls or Afro Samurai for your kids to watch...
By today's standards, all of those statements are blatantly racist. In their own time, they were mainstream belief.
You're criticizing men who (as a group, if not individually) were more enlightened than the society they lived in because they haven't had the 200 years of research and knowledge that you do.
Have you never read 'Frankenstein,' 'Treasure Island,' 'Little Black Sambo,' or other books from that era?
