    It is apparently Sweden's dirty little secret.


    A$AP Rocky proves that Donald Trump was right about Sweden | Ronie

    It should be noted also that A$ap Rocky went to the police station voluntarily to explain what happened and was immediately arrested.
    The jail conditions he was subjected to were inhumane and filthy. Supposedly he's been moved to a decent cell now. He's still being unlawfully detained.
    Pray for A$ap. This is injustice.

    Trump has advisers and lawyers they should have told him what to expect. If he thought that US citizen was treated unfairly, US authorities should have officially protested, Imo.

    I'm sure there is things going on behind closed doors we are unaware of as well. I don't expect these young american men to be jailed for much longer.

    Are you actually asking why the leader of the USA got involved when a foreign nation imprisoned a US citizen

    Yeah I am. US citizens get arrested in foreign countries all the time when they break laws. You break a law, you get arrested and go to jail. Do I have to explain the dynamics to you?

    Lol Sweden doesn’t even have “bail.” They probably told him to negotiate further just to troll him. The international press are having a field day with this story lol
    And yes we are all laughing at the Orange. No offence. But I guess it was a nice gesture :shrug:

    There is no right to bail in Sweden although individuals who are released without detention may have their travel restricted by court order.

    What happened before hand? Why were the guys upset? We don't know and the video doesn't show that.

    This is true. Still one would expect the leader of the free world to understand that it’s pointless to offer to pay bail in a country without a bail system. Hence all the pointing and laughing.
    Leaders only really interfere in citizens being arrested internationally if there are human rights abuses or citizens are being condemned to die.
    So if there are such abuses occurring, then I guess it’s understandable why the Orange is interfering. If not, then it just belies his own arrogance. Or is merely a political stunt.

    IMO that is thanks to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian for talking to Trump. Trump was out of line stepping in and playing favoritism. It's not a national problem or emergency.
    If Trump does that for one American, he should do it for all Americans, but we know he won't do that.

    It's irrelevant. The video shows the rappers trying to de-esculate the situation by telling those guys to "walk away, we don't want to fight you". But the other guys kept pushing and pushing and pushing. It's obvious who the aggressors were.

    It is relevant. They could have started/provoked it then backed down. How do you know the rapper and his crew didn't start it by harassing them, then tried to back down when they saw those guys weren't going to stand for it?

    Because if that were true the other guys would have been visibly more upset. Watch the video listen to the voices. You can hear the rapper and his crew are genuinely trying just get these guys to back off, and they wouldn't.
