SWEDEN: Yet another police officer quits his job in protest against the national police chief Dan Eliasson's mismanagement of the police force. The policeman writes about his decision in a letter to Eliasson, which was also posted in a closed group for Swedish policemen on Facebook.
"This is not a temporary slump. It is a disaster. The rule of law has completely broken down. Whoever has the greatest assets of violence is the one that controls the local community. Loss of life occur, and the assailants remain largely unpunished," he writes.
The policeman, who has been anonymised, has worked as a police officer since the 90's. In the spring, he was assigned the task of investigating a rape that was already one month old.
"No action had been taken. I never got the opportunity to take an initial contact with the victim, and has not had the time to prepare for an initial interrogation", says the letter to Eliasson.
In addition, the policeman accused the National Police Chief of lying, both to the politicians and the Swedish people, about what the situation is like for the police.
"Either you're lying consciously or you are so embedded in your own bubble that you do not understand how serious it is," he writes.
The letter has subsequently spread to other Facebook groups. On Monday, several police officers used Twitter and linked to the letter on Facebook, and spread it to other colleagues and the public.
