Norway, the violence keeps going…

I just saw this on VG.no:

 

Politimann slått til blods – radioen virket ikke

– De to politifolkene ble blant annet angrepet av minst to festdeltagere, sannsynligvis flere. De ble tildelt både slag og spark. Den ene politimannen fikk et kutt i leppa og en skikkelig blåveis, opplyser operasjonsleder Bård Austad i Agder politidistrikt til VG Nett.

I have plenty of Norwegian friends, and they keep telling me Norway wasn’t always like this.  In fact, I got the impression that Norway used to be much like an American suburb in the 40’s and 50’s where everyone knew each other and got along.  What’s going on guys?  I’d still say Norway is probably one of the safest countries to live in, but it makes me sad to hear about how “Norway used to be” verses how it is “now”.

Would love to hear your take on it!
