Joel’s trial ended yesterday and the prosecuting attorney pleads that Joel will get convicted for the riots in Kärrtorp/Stockholm the 15th of December last year when 30 nazis attacked a manifestation against all the nazi-graffiti and propaganda that had been spread and still are being spread in the area. The prosecuting attorney also pleads that Joel will be convicted for attempted murder to a 7 years sentence. Joel has admitted that he has stuck a nazi with a knife but that he did it in self-defence and also to defend the manifestation that was under attack by nazis.
SÄPO (the Swedish Security Service) had knowledge about the nazis plan to attack the manifestation but the police claims that they never got that information and therefore only 6 police officers were working that day. The police themselves witnessed during the trial and said that they had no chance to stop the nazis from attacking the manifestation.
Joel and the other antifascists saved the manifestation that day and we mean that they all should be free from all prosecution.

One by one, five police officers took the witness stand at the Skokie courthouse late last month for what would typically be a routine hearing on whether evidence in a drug case was properly obtained.
But in a “Perry Mason” moment rarely seen inside an actual courtroom, the inquiry took a surprising turn when the suspect’s lawyer played a police video that contradicted the sworn testimony of the five officers — three from Chicago and two from Glenview, a furious judge found.
Cook County Circuit Judge Catherine Haberkorn suppressed the search and arrest, leading prosecutors to quickly dismiss the felony charges. All five officers were later stripped of their police powers and put on desk duty pending internal investigations. And the state’s attorney’s office is looking into possible criminal violations, according to spokeswoman Sally Daly.
"Obviously, this is very outrageous conduct," a transcript of the March 31 hearing quoted the judge, a former county prosecutor, as saying. "All officers lied on the stand today. … All their testimony was a lie. So there’s strong evidence it was conspiracy to lie in this case, for everyone to come up with the same lie. … Many, many, many, many times they all lied."
All five are veteran officers. Glenview Officer Jim Horn declined to comment Monday, while the other four — Sgt. James Padar and Officers Vince Morgan and William Pruente, all assigned to narcotics for Chicago police, and Glenview Sgt. Theresa Urbanowski — could not be reached for comment.
Legal experts in Cook County differ on how much of a problem perjury by police officers represents.
"Police officers are just like anybody — just because they’re wearing a badge and carrying a gun does not give them more credibility," said Cook County Public Defender Abishi Cunningham Jr., a former Chicago prosecutor, defense attorney and judge. "Some officers approach it as a game of cops and robbers," he said. "This is anything but a game."
"I’ve heard some police officers say in a social setting, ‘If (the defendant’s) going to lie to beat the case, why can’t I lie too?’" Cunningham said.
But Pat Camden, spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police, the union representing rank-and-file officers, said the overwhelming majority of officers are truthful.
"Obviously perjury isn’t something that is condoned by the FOP or anybody in the Police Department," Camden said. "These are allegations, and an investigation is taking place."
County prosecutors said judges occasionally don’t believe an officer’s version of events, but it’s rare for a cop to be called out for lying on the stand.
A University of Chicago law student in the late 1980s and early 1990s studied police perjury in the Cook County system, interviewing dozens of courtroom veterans as well as narcotics officers. Myron Orfield, now a University of Minnesota law professor, found that most police officers, judges and public defenders believed officers at least shaded the facts to support their arrest.
"Sometimes the officers were just lazy," Orfield said last week in an interview. "Sometimes they stretched things to get the bad guy."
