Video of an incident in which Swedish police dragged a pregnant woman off a train car sparked outcry and an investigation into possible misconduct. After the incident, officials told Swedish news that two security guards were suspended and there is an ongoing police investigation into the confrontation that began over a missing ticket.
Video of the incident, taken by a bystander just outside the train car, shows two officers removing a visibly pregnant woman from her seat and pulling her out of the train before pinning her face down against a nearby bench. As the woman screams, a third officer takes away a crying child that appeared to be with the woman on the train. Tomorrow all the witnesses that came forth with their evidence will be making their own reports. In these two videos you can see the victim dragged out of the train, her child taken from her and whilst she attempts to stand up she is held down.
The full video is over 5 minutes long and I will try and edit and put it up tonight or tomorrow. The victim is currently in the hospital and all I can do is hope the baby is alright because if anything happens to that child. There will be hell to pay. The New York Times reported Sunday that the pregnant woman, who wished to only been identified by her first name Jeanine, is a beauty salon worker who is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Jeanine told the Times she was on the way to the hospital with her 5-year-old daughter because she was having contractions. While on the train, she couldn't find her travel card and was issued a fine by a transit agent. Angry that she had forgotten the card, she threw the fine on the ground, which prompted the agent to tell Jeanine she had to leave the train.
When they reached a station, two security guards entered the train and pulled her out onto the platform, giving her bruises on her back, thighs, and arms she told the Times were still present Sunday. They put me on the bench, with my stomach down. One of them put their knee on my back and I lost my breath. A witness confirmed Jeanine's of the incident, saying officers pinned her to a bench as she continued to scream.
The confrontation comes amid a swelling conversation surrounding racial profiling and police brutality in Sweden. Swedish activist organization Men for Gender Equality President Alan Ali told the BBC that the incident wasn't the first time security guards had used excessive force in recent months. The confrontation comes months after a video of Swedish police forcibly removing Chinese tourists from a hostel made international headlines and prompted condemnation by Chinese diplomats. Lawmakers are calling for action after thousands of inmates in a Brooklyn jail went without electricity and heat during the polar vortex.
