Swedish policeman drops groping case because victim had 'gigantic breasts' (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/08/24/swedish-policeman-drops-groping-case-because-victim-had-gigantic/)

A Swedish police investigator reportedly dropped a sexual assault charge because the two alleged victims had “gigantic breasts”.

Two women reported a professional ice hockey player to police after he allegedly grabbed their breasts at the Marité nightclub in Ostersund, northern Sweden. But on Tuesday the lead investigator Mikael Lundberg reportedly said there was no proof the player had assaulted the women, or that the man had touched them intentionally.

“It’s pertinent in this case that the women had gigantic breasts,” he told reporters from Expressen newspaper. “It wasn’t hard to brush up against them. If you’re drunk and draping yourself over someone, well, you can see how it might have happened.”

Swedish broadcaster SVT also reported that Mr Lundberg had told them that one of the girls had "very large breasts and it was hard not to brush against them.

Sweden’s former chief prosecutor Sven-Erik Alhem condemned Mr Lundberg for his “totally idiotic” statements. “It is absolutely disgusting. It is a sensational statement, I would say. Totally indiscriminate and unlawful,” he told Expressen. “You do not come up with your own speculations about how easy it might have been to touch someone.”

Elisabeth Massi Fritz, a Stockholm lawyer and campaigner for rape victims, told the newspaper that breast size should never be a mitigating factor in sexual assault cases. “A woman should not have to take the blame for a sexual assault simply because she has big breasts,” she said.

Stephen Jerand, police chief for the Jamtland region, disowned his investigator’s “unfortunate” statement. “The decision relates to the perpetrator’s subjective intent. The fact that he was very drunk and couldn’t control his own body; that can happen. But breast size shouldn’t influence a decision regarding intent.”

Mr Lundberg on Wednesday said he was “extremely sorry for the whole development”, telling the Aftonbladet tabloid that he had been “completely misquoted and misunderstood”.

“I never said that breast size had any significance,” he told Aftonbladet. “Never.”

Speak for yourself, buddy. :=

Anyway, this thread has gone tits-up.
Sadly, there are no pics of those either. What a bummer.

It's good to stay abreast of current events, but this story just sucks. I think it's being milked and pumped for everything they can get out of it and was written to the normal formula. I'm surprised that they could burp out this nonsense. It's just wet; nurse it back to life I say. The ice hockey player was probably just reaching for his jugs of beer and probably feels udderly embarrassed now. The woman has a lot of bottle for complaining and expressed her opinion as fact. Some people lack grace, and some lack tate and lyle - yes they could be a lot sweeter rather than nursing their bile. it drives me hm ... bananas!

“I never said that breast size had any significance,” he told Aftonbladet. “Never.”This man either lies through his teeth, or he's gay. As all red-blooded, hetero men know, breast size is particularly significant.

Apparently I once commented on the size of a lady's boobs, right in front of the lady herself.. I barely knew her, but had seen her around a fair bit. I was admiring a couple of freshly poured pints. I do not know my actual language/words.
A friend of mine told me about this over 40 years later. Apparently she still looks for my wise words on fartbook. Thankfully, she now lives on another Continent.

AO - You didn't say something like, "they're nice big jugs!", when admiring the freshly-poured pints, did you?

The big question is: have they weighed up all the evidence?

I got into trouble with my new wife when I started to talk about greasing nipples (the topic was purely about car maintenance, but she thought that I was being 'fruity').
Later on I was able to refer to Bristol Cream and threpenny bits.
