Violence and intimidation are never to be excused, it’s wrong and condemnable.
That said, I hold those in authority for allowing situations like these to acerbate, guilty of a crime as well, against the civil society that they’ve been sworn to uphold. Instead, they’ve embarked upon an utopian path of re-engineering society into the ”perfect man” like the statist predecessors before them, in communist and fascist socialism.
Prosecutor quits Gotland rape probe after alleged threats

“It’s to do with the events that have occurred on Gotland in recent days,” assistant chief prosecutor Åke Olsson, who has now taken over the case, told Swedish news agency TT.
Last week five men were arrested over the suspected rape of a woman in the medieval town of Visby, but they were later released after the prosecutor judged there was not enough evidence to have them remanded in custody.
Unrest on the island followed, with a demonstration taking place and threats against the police and prosecutors reported. Extra police officers were sent to Gotland in response, and two people are now being investigated for unlawful conduct towards public officials as well as trespassing.
The former prosecutor on the case, Mats Wihlborg, claimed that several people had attended his residence after the men were released.
“I’m not taking charge of the matter anymore. We have been subject to quite serious things. I don’t want to comment any more on it,” he told local newspaper Hela Gotland.
