Thanks Chef, good pics
Posted these at on HKPRO earlier and thought some of you might find them interesting as well.
Is it in Uppsalla (considering the URL stamped on the pics) or what? When, where?
I think they busted the guy for selling pirated cd's.
Thanks guys .
ShadowCrow, the pic's are from April 17th 2004 and were taken in Gottsunda in Uppsala.
Edit: Some more, non HK related pic's from the same incident:

Who is Pic?
Excellent non HK pics, Chef!
nice pictures chef, thanks for sharing
Pics like these are great, that punk doesn´t look so tough now without his trucker hat, piece and his friends. What did he do anyway? I suppose the police considered him to be armed and dangerous to call in Piketen equipped like that.
Piketen for you non-Swedes. Units in larger cities with ordinary police officers patrolling, usually in squads and they are specially trained to handle a little more demanding situations than ordinary police officers. I guess they could be called SWAT simply. Piketen was formed in 1979 after a hostage situation when the West-german embassy in Stockholm was attacked by Palestinian gunmen.
Their equipment vest. Comfortable and made by... Blackhawk I think it was?
Some of their toys
Some Swedish police videos
Glad you like them .
Kekkonen, thanks for the pic's, and sorry, I have no more info relating to the pic's.
A few more:
Rigorous saftey measures during football game in Malmö. The Israeli team Maccabi Haifa met Malmö FF at Malmö Stadium. Maccabi Haifa stayed at the Hilton in central Malmö and the whole area was cordoned off by heavily armed police. When the team had boarded the bus they were escorted by a large number of police vehicles. Photos by: Jens C Hilner, Mats Hansson 20050727.
An armed man was arrested around 18:00 on Hallingsgatan in Malmö. The man had barricaded himself in a flat and threatened to shoot anyone who came close. The police was sent to the scene in force including Piketen [SWAT equivalent]. After negotiations with the police the man could be arrested. Photos by: Mats Hansson, Jens C Hilner 20050514.
Thanks for the info Kekkonen, and to you Chef for more pics!
Looks like the arrested guy was a gangmember and they can be pretty dangrous.
Nice to see that Sthlm's piketen/swat gets some credit for once.
Usually Nationella insatsstyrkan/ National SWAT gets all credit.
Uhmm NI doesn't get all the credit... Piketen gets a fair amount of credit as well.Originally Posted by Parzival
