Just call it Ferguson.

The cop was well within his rights to keep himself from being hurt by an unruly perp. In this case it was from biting and spitting he applied extra security measures. Case closed.

The guards are being investigated by Swedish police for assault, but Swedish criminologist Leif GW Persson told SVT’s Crime of the Week (‘Veckans brott’) show that he believes the case will be dropped.

“He starts to fight, spit and bite and it’s in that situation that the guard puts his hand over his mouth. I find it difficult to see any other ways in which you could have solved that situation,” he told a reporter on the show, which aired on Tuesday night.

A CCTV video obtained by Swedish broadcaster SVT has shed new light on a controversial altercation between two underage refugee boys, nine and 12, and security guards at Malmö train station, which stirred debate in Sweden last month.

One of the children was allegedly assaulted by two security guards at the train station in Malmö on February 6th. Regional newspaper Sydsvenskan obtained a video that appeared to show one of the guards pushing the nine-year-old on to the ground, sitting on him and holding his hands over his mouth.

The second guard was shown in the same video clip, restraining the older boy on a bench at the station.The event was filmed by several bystanders on their mobile phones.
