Provocative Street Artist on Trial in Sweden, Charged With Hate Speech

Street artist Dan Park is now facing possible prison time for his work

Back on 20 April, 42-year-old Dan Park had spent the afternoon putting up highly provocative wanted posters of a black man named Jallow Momodou, depicting him as a slave gone missing. To quote the poster: “Our negro slave has run away!! If you know where he is or if you’ve seen him please call.” In the process, Park had been pursued by a citizen who had seen what he was doing and who called the police on him. Shortly thereafter, they arrested him red-handed putting up posters. This Thursday he was subsequently indicted for hate speech under the Swedish HMF law (agitation against ethnic group) as well as two other crimes, facing a possible two years in prison.


Swedish Member of Parliament Involuntarily Committed From Being Too Strung Out on Drugs

The year so far has witnessed numerous scandals involving partying and drug abuse on the part of the Sweden Democrats (SD), a political party with only a year-long history in the Swedish parliament – Riksdagen – after finally having made it past the 4% block during the 2010 elections. This Monday it was revealed that 23-year-old William Petzäll, the most notorious of the party’s drug fiends, had been involuntarily committed to a care facility last week under the Care of Alcoholics, Drug Abusers and Abusers of Volatile Solvents Act – the LVM law in Swedish.


Sweden’s Largest Tabloid Does Hit Piece on Joe Arpaio Which Backfires

Even in liberal Sweden, Joe Arpaio is The Man.
At least that’s the impression you get from reading the comments to tabloid Aftonbladet’s hit piece this Thursday on Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, Sweden’s largest periodical. The article is part of a tour of America two reporters at the newspaper are doing called Amerika på dekis, “America Down & Out.” To quote the stated intention of the article series at “Peter Kadhammar and Urban Andersson are traveling across the American continent for two weeks. They will cover the American crisis which may be the end of an historic era, the American century.”


In Biggest Swedish Child Porn Ring Bust to Date, Only One Out of 24 Gets Prison

Lars Skoglund, 43, was sentenced to one year in
prison for heading a large child porn ring
During the summer of 2010, Lars Skoglund was a suspect of having molested his sibling’s children. He was found innocent of this, but when the police searched his house and seized his computer, they uncovered large volumes of child pornography on his hard drives. Following this, in September he now faced child pornography charges – and while he at first was a sole suspect, some 23 women all over Sweden between the ages of 38 and 70 found themselves charged as well of the same crime, as the police discovered chat logs from the encounters the man had had with these women after hooking up with them on dating site


Swedish Lesbian Sued County Council for Being Referred to Specialist Clinic; Awarded Damages

Back in 2009, a lesbian woman “married” to another woman had decided she wanted to have a child. This usually isn’t a problem if you go about the natural way to have one – find a husband, hopefully marry him, and then start a family; but since she wanted to start a family without a man in it, she opted for an artificial insemination instead. To get approved for this procedure, everyone has to go through a mandatory medical examination. So on 6 February of that year, she gets in touch with Liljeholmen care center, a medical facility with excellent customer reviews at Swedish care guide website Vårdguiden, and gets an appointment at the gynecologist’s office there.


Swedish Inmate has sex in Front of Child; Staff Interrupts, Fiancée Files Complaint and Wins

In Sweden,we’ve got a public authority called the Parliamentary Ombudsman (JO is the Swedish acronym), an institution tasked with ensuring that laws are adhered to and that we as citizens can file complaints if some part of the government has stepped on us. People in general don’t make much use of this right as they go about their daily lives, and if they do, they certainly don’t experience the JO as being very accommodating – yet inmates at Swedish prisons sure make up for it. The background for this article was a JO decision I read this morning dated 30 September this year, where a woman had filed a complaint since she felt it had been “disrespectful and offensive” that corrections officers had interrupted her and her inmate boyfriend when they had engaged in sexual intercourse in front of their five-month-old daughter during a conjugal visit.

Swedish Child Welfare – Tough With the Gentle, Gentle With the Tough

Through an unexpected string of events, Swedish child welfare has recently become a hot topic internationally, with no fewer than three other countries involved in highly publicized child welfare controversies. But first, let’s start off with a domestic matter – vanvårdsutredningen, “The abuse investigation” in English, the inquiry into the excesses children in Swedish foster care had to endure during the mid 20th century, and the financial compensation the victims who suffered this abuse were looking forward to.


New Details Emerge in Killed Corrections Officer Case – 40+ Blows Landed

Now the identity of the perpetrator [shown on the right] has been publicly revealed, and the identity of the young woman who was going to be 25 this Wednesday has also become known through word of mouth.

Lax Jail Security Sees Young Female Corrections Officer Killed in Sweden

Last June, this 25-year-woman, whose identity has not yet been revealed to mass media, started work at Huddinge jail as a corrections officer.

The bloody assault took place on the roof of Huddinge jail at around 10.30 AM, when she was alone with the repeat offender during an outdoor walk.


Swedish Gun Laws and Globalist Confiscation Schemes

While not much of significance has taken place lately on the gun front since the Brady bill was passed back in 1993, now a new threat looms on the horizon – but this time its origin isn’t at the usual Capitol Hill, but at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
