Under the slogan "Security in Focus," four Swedish party leaders visited the immigrant Stockholm suburb of Husby to talk about how more police, more powers and a clampdown will stop the stone throwing, car fires and other immigrant-related crime in the metropolitan suburbs. But despite a massive police presence and bodyguards, the criminals were still able to set the agenda.
And even though the quartet of party leaders visited Husby in the middle of the day, and with a whole entourage of police officers, bodyguards, journalists and other politicians, it became clear pretty soon who controls the suburb.
One of Expressen's photographers, who had gone to Husby to cover the party leaders visit, was approached by a group of men who demanded to decide which pictures he could keep.
- Show the pictures! ordered the threatening man and demanded to approve the photographer's photos.
The moment was captured by politician Benjamin Dousa, the vice president of the Rinkeby-Kista District, who had joined the party leaders visit.
"Youths demand to see the pictures taken by Expressen. Told the photographer to remove some. Intimidating atmosphere," he wrote on Twitter afterwards.
"There were no threats and no pictures have been removed. Otherwise, we had reported about it," Expressen replied to his tweet.
"But I saw the way your photographer was forced to show and delete photos," Dousa then replied.
"No pictures have been removed, as said," Expressen replied.
So there you have it. Even when their own photographer is threatened, and with a reliable witness and a photo that proves it, one of Sweden's largest mainstream newspapers still refuses to report the truth.
That criminals are censoring the press is no big deal obviously.
