Oinking at Officers leads to Prosecution

Saying ”oink oink” to the police can lead straight to court. A fifteen year old boy in Sweden will be prosecuted for insulting two police officers, according to Swedish newspaper Metro.

Unprovoked, the boy called the officers pigs and oinked at them repeatedly. Before that he had been telling passers by that he didn’t like the police and that he had seen them act like “pigs” on several occasions.  Despite admitting he was wrong straight after and apologising to the officers, it was not enough to appease the officers and avoid being taken to court.  If found guilty, the fifteen year old will be given both a heavy fine and a criminal record.
