Weird Situation – President Trump Requests Consideration for U.S. Rapper A$AP Rocky Held in Stockholm…

At first blush this story is just odd.  A U.S. rap star has been held in prison for two weeks following a fight in Stockholm, Sweden.  Various people, including celebrities, have reached out to the White House and President Trump for help.  According to one report the administration was able to gain better holding conditions, but the entire story is weird.

Apparently the young American musician was stalked by a group prior to a concert, and a physical confrontation started.  Mr. Rocky’s (aka Rakim May) lawyers say the artist acted in self defense, apparently Swedish authorities consider the event very serious.

(Via Fox5) Urged on by the first lady and celebrities including Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, the president had said in a Friday tweet that he would intervene to try to free Rocky, whose real name is Rakim May.

[…] The Swedish prime minister issued a statement earlier Saturday saying he would be glad to speak with Trump about A$AP Rocky’s detention but that his government “cannot and will not attempt to influence prosecutors or courts.”

“I understand that President Trump has a personal interest in the case….He has expressed the desire for a conversation with me, which is certainly positive,” Lofven said. “I will explain that the Swedish judicial system is independent. In Sweden, everyone is equal before the law, and this includes visitors from other countries.”

Rocky has been behind bars while Swedish police investigate the fight in Stockholm he allegedly was in before appearing at a music festival. Videos published on social media appear to show a person being violently thrown onto the ground by Rocky. A defense lawyer has said it was self-defense. (read more)

According to Page Six: “The White House has secured better jailhouse conditions for A$AP Rocky, Page Six has learned. The Harlem hip-hop star has been locked up in a Swedish prison for more than two weeks after he got in a street fight with two men who had been tailing him and his entourage through the streets of Stockholm. (more)

The incarceration without bail seems excessive, but from the action by the Swedish authorities perhaps the events were a bit more serious than currently understood.  As typical for a caturday, suspicious cat is in a holding pattern for more details while remaining suspicious….

            #JusticeForRocky Demand that Rocky be released from Swedish Officials

            https://www.change.org/p/swedish-officials-justiceforrocky-demand-that-rocky-be-released-from-swedish-officials

            Sweden had committed a massive blunder. It’s like they arrested and detained Duke Ellington, or Dianna Ross, or Red Foxxx, or Josephine Baker and detained them for more than half a month.

              Ibib.

              Upon being detained, Rocky was denied his request to counsel which is in violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to which Sweden is a signatory.
              Everyone has the same rights to be treated fairly upon detainment and should be given fair and equal access to such rights. Since, he has been allowed to visit with a U.S. Embassy Consult and attorney, but only in the presence of Swedish officials. It is extremely troubling and worrisome that the laws are not being applied equally in these circumstances.
              On Monday, July 8th, we filed an appeal with the Swedish Supreme Court to have Rocky released from the inhumane conditions and the clear violation of human rights. They rejected the filing, which means Rocky will remain in prison for two weeks. The conditions of the facility are horrific. Some of the inhumane conditions Rocky and his colleagues are facing at the Stockholm Detention Center include 24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, access to palatable and life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions.
              The prosecutor on the case has further communicated that he is working to receive an additional two-week extension for a trial to begin in mid – to end of August. To keep Rocky and his colleagues in jail pending the lengthy trial proceedings is a punishment before the fact, with no due process.

      Sweden thanks to these muslims isn’t a nice play as it was before.

      The problem is that the muslims who attacked them were small overconfident guys who thought nothing will happen, like swedes backing down normally. Small scrawny guys facing a huge bodyguard ended bad for them.

Also suspect to me is why the guys aren’t in jail for attacking the bodyguard?

      This is exactly what I thought-it’s ok that Rocky is in jail as long as the other 2 perpetrators are too. But they aren’t. Definitely seems extremely suspicious and heavy handed. Sweden has extremely lax sentencing guidelines for their own criminals, interesting that they choose to imprison him for so long. Maybe Rocky needs a lawyer to appeal to the EU Human Rights Court for an emergency appeal – we all know they free and protect criminals all of the time, this time they might actually do something positive for a change. Also extremely interesting that Sweden can hold him in excess of 2 weeks without formal charges and this isn’t a terrorism case that would exempt that. In the UK I believe it’s a maximum of 2 days (similar to here) and then you need to present specific charges.

They don’t. And on occasion an American comes to the rude and abrupt realization of this fact, as A$AP just has. Welcome to reality.

    There is no habeas corpus, no freedom of speech, no right to bail, no Miranda, no right to an attorney, no right to speedy trial, and on and on and on. Not outside America.

    It’s a jungle out there. Some countries are more free than others, but NONE protect the rights we consider inalienable anywhere near as robustly and as steadfastly as America. And all the statistics rattled off to prove how bad America is came AFTER the looting of America by the globalists. So f*** you, Jeff.

    I don’t know how many of you know Tommy’s story, but he is the bravest man in the UK and a real journalist too, who is now is a Muslim controlled prison, solitary confinement for “contempt of court.” What he really did was to piss off the Establishment by reporting on the Muslim rape gangs that seem to be rampant in England.

    There is a good chance that Tommy may not survive his sentence-either getting “accidentally” murdered or PTSD from months of solitary confinement.

        Even though we are expected to obey the laws of a foreign jurisdiction, just as aliens are expected to obey ours, when that doesn’t happen, it’s our fed gov job to protect Americans from unequal and unfair treatment abroad.

      These two cases–Tommy Robinson and Rakim May–are completely different. Mr. May is one of our citizens. Mr. Robinson (actually Yaxley-Lennon) is obviously a U.K. citizen.

      I’m all for Tommy Robinson and believe his sentence was unjust and unnecessary. I pray he will survive his incarceration intact, physically and mentally.

      However, since political asylum cannot be applied for at an American embassy or consulate, how was the U.S. to gain custody of him? We could not spirit him out of the country. He could not use his passport. The logistics were impossible. If President Trump contacted the Brit P.M. Theresa May to discuss the situation, I’m sure she told him to not interfere in their internal affairs.

      Sweden will likely NOT do anything to fulfill President Trump’s request. If Rakim May is convicted along with his entourage, hopefully they will be simply deported and refused entry ever again into Sweden. But considering Sweden is in the mode of capitulation to foreign nationals that will not assimilate into Swedish society/culture since they don’t want to, I would imagine the Swedish government is more concerned about the possibility of displeasure by their “guests” than they are with justice for an American or granting any requests from the American government.

      Shariah has arrived in Sweden and Britain and neither government cares enough to put any stop to it.

That is the reason for his persecution and imprisonment. They are purposely inviting the practitioners of the religion of hate and rape to kill him.

      • Country- Thanks for your comment and glad that someone here knows a bit about Tommy’s history.
        Prior to his most recent imprisonment, he made a video imploring President Trump to give him political asylum which is what many of us had hoped would happen.
        Things are very bad for him in prison- they put him in one of the very worst ones. I wish he would have left the UK while he had the chance, even going to Poland or Hungary- anywhere else.

    • Many of the people Trump has rescued were saved with behind the scenes help. Robinson asked for asylum two days before he was due back with authorities, a time frame that likely would have hampered him from even being able to leave his home, let alone get into an embassy or on a plane, without jihadist mob attacks.

      Trump obeys our judges, even knowing that they are unjust and we are given to understand that his efforts to fix that are not done through his tweet methods.

      Tommy was convicted by a court legally, but not justly; but there is no means to intervene against the law open to the president.

      President Trump has to get leverage to help Tommy.

      Also, do not forget that only a few months ago, Tommy acknowledged the likelihood of his being martyred and it was not tongue in cheek.

      I suspect that with actual martyrdom now imminent Tommy’s very human side kicked in and a bid for self- preservation came out in his bid for asylum. He may also have expected an uprising to have blocked him from being incarcerated this time as people are well aware that his death is a likely outcome.

      Trump may still work on asylum for the family.

      but to expect him to just walk in, rebuke the legal system and waltz away with a convicted citizen is a bit much to expect of Trump.

      He does not tweet about things when it might make the subject of the tweet imperiled. His timing is uncanny and for hte present we are putting a giant microscope on this, now aware of exactly what happened last time.

      That judge is going to have hell to pay if he is killed and his martyrom, along with the Brexit betrayal, could provide a tinder for a conflagration. They will need that, as their passivity and negative replacement population made infiltration an easy win for Islam and its spawning of useful pawns (their children are not viewed as we view our children, they are resources for attack to be trained into hate, and abused savagely into dull eyed, hopeless submission).

      • As a non citizen, Robinson is entitled to ask for political asylum. Here are the US standards:
        You are unable or unwilling to return to your home country because you have been persecuted there in the past or have a well-founded fear that you will be persecuted if you go back.
        The reason you have been (or will be) persecuted is connected to one of five things: your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or your political opinion.

      Tommy Robinson is a hero and a patriot. Having said that,his last minute plea for asylum was inappropriate and is going nowhere. The way to do that would have been to somehow sneak out of the UK and then file for asylum immediately at airport in US. However, what is being done to him in UK is lawful there, since they have no first amendment. The burden would be on Tommy to show he’s being persecuted,, not merely prosecuted.

        Here are the standards for protection as an asylum seeker:
        You are unable or unwilling to return to your home country because you have been persecuted there in the past or have a well-founded fear that you will be persecuted if you go back.

If you do and injure the criminal you will be charged with assault yourself. This will come to you in the US if you keep electing left wing Democrats.

    The Swedish vid I saw shows ONLY the fight, not how it started and *who* started it. The “fight only” portion is pretty brutal cuz the “swedes” were absolutely no match for the Americans, so were very easily tossed about. hehe.

    Apparently, this is a common scam in Sweden right now: the new Swedes follow and harass tourists, get money, cameras, etc. off of them then split. No fear, cuz the Euro tourists and silly Swedes won’t call the cops or complain.

    Those a$$es just never tried this sh*t on an American, or if they did, it was an SJW from Portland.

      If you’re traveling the world, you learn about the old adage, “When in Rome, do as the Romans.” His team was not prepared. They were patient, but not prepared. It’s not about who’s right or wrong. Again, how’s that working for them?

    A$AP Rocky and his 3-4 man “entourage” are walking on the street, trying to mind their own business, all the while being accosted by a group of several Muslim youths who appear to be teenagers.

    The bodyguard very patiently tells the boys to quit following us, quit touching us, go away. The boys won’t leave and are trying to shakedown the Americans for the cost of a headset broken when the boy used it to attack the bodyguard. The Americans remain calm throughout, at one point A$AP Rocky looks into the camera and explains they don’t want any trouble, they don’t want to fight these guys, but they won’t stop following them and touching them.

    Then the video cuts and resumes showing the Americans beating the crap out of the boys.

    And the Americans are in jail.

                And there are many other options, each with different possible outcomes.

                When faced with uncertainty (a situation where there are POSITIVE or NEGATIVE possible outcomes) do NOT allow your emotions to determine your actions, or you will most likely end up with a negative outcome.
                Instead, disregard your emotions, evaluate the situation, and detirmine what actions will most likely give you a POSITIVE outcome.
                Given that the rapper is in jail, facing potentially serious charges, I doubt he did that.

                Again, I point out that from what I could see in the video, he gave those punks a pretty good beat down. Plenty of opportunities for one of the thugs to die, as a result of a kick to the head, or hitting head on curb.
                In which case he would be charged with murder, even in U.S.
                He may be said to have excercised poor judgement.

Look at the position he has put our President in. This is truly a one-man show. Congress is worthless except for the handful of Patriots we all know. Disgusting.

    FTA: The Swedish foreign ministry has said it looks forward to eventually welcoming a new US ambassador to Stockholm after 28 months without anyone in the spot.

    The role has been empty since January 2017 when President Donald Trump took office. It’s already made the history books: not in the last century has Sweden gone this long without a US ambassador.

    Seven months ago, Trump nominated Ken Howery – an entrepreneur and venture capitalist from Texas, who co-founded Paypal with Elon Musk – for the role, as The Local reported at the time.

    Howery’s appointment is not yet official though, as he must first be approved by the US Senate.

    In a speech to the US Senate at his nomination hearing last week, Howery highlighted the long-standing relationship between his country and Sweden, one of the first countries to formally recognize the US.

    “If confirmed, I will devote myself to deepening that legacy, emphasizing economic and security partnerships. American-Swedish trade already encompasses everything from medicines and machine parts to clothing and furniture; you can find iPhones in H&M pockets, and Ikea desks in American homes,” he said, also highlighting Sweden’s role in the tech and startup industries.

They use ridiculous terms such as “asians”, “young men” and “prayer robes” when referring to its practitioners. Sweden is overrun by violent gangs – they are not young, white, blue eyed or of Swedish descent.

    From wikipedia:

    Legal incidents
    In 2004, Mayers served two weeks in Rikers Island for drug dealing, where he shared a cell with future rapper Casanova.

    On July 19, 2012, he was arrested after an alleged involvement in a brawl, with 21-year-old artist iRome in downtown Manhattan.

    On August 31, 2013, Mayers allegedly slapped a woman during the Budweiser Made in America Festival. He was charged “with misdemeanor simple assault, a class two misdemeanor”. The case was dismissed after a witness failed to appear to court. The woman later filed a lawsuit in July 2014, stating that she still suffered certain conditions following the alleged assault. Mayers stated that he never touched the woman, and that she “should have known that there could be trouble in place with so many people”. The lawsuit was settled between the two in April 2015.

    He’s a dumb thug and probably all of the people around him are dumb thugs. They apparently act in other countries like their on their home turf ghetto wastelands. I’m not sure he even ever attended school. wikipedia says he was selling crack at age 15. I wish Trump had not intervened, and I certainly don’t waht Kim and Kanye to think they can just call Trump up any time one of their pals are in legal trouble UNLESS they are planning to campaign for Trump this year and next.

      I think it’s a much bigger issue than the individual. I think POTUS wants a US citizen to be treated with the same respect he expects the USA to be treated worldwide. WRote more on this upthread.

      He’s an American citizen who defended himself against muslims – which is not allowed in Sweden. Sweden kidnaps Christian children and gives them to muslims. Sweden allows their women an children to be raped by muslims and not only won’t stop the crime in progress they won’t prosecute or jail the muslim rapists when they are forced to arrest them.

      Sweden is dying and evil – I want any American citizen subjected to their idea of justice to have the US stand for them.

        Did he defend himself? I only saw a video of he and his people slamming the Sweden guy to the pavement and beating him. If I saw more footage I could easily change my mind.

          See my post and video link up thread. The fight is preceded by several minutes of the Muslims following the Americans, who are trying to mind their own business. The one Muslim hits the big guy with his headset, then demands money for the headset he broke. The Americans repeatedly tell the boys to go away, quit following us, quit touching us.

          The Americans were very clear about the hazards of getting into a fight in a foreign country, and exercised tremendous restraint.

          It looks like this might have been a scam, the kid wanted a new headset (or more likely to buy drugs) and decided to shake down some tourists for money.

      covfefe… “I’m not sure he even ever attended school…” with all respect, please take a look at some videos of what goes on in our “schools”. That’s where this rapper would have first learned to fight…that’s why I pulled my kids out of urban public school, the assaults were unacceptable to me. (Particularly bathroom assaults and vandalism, but it happens in classrooms and hallways and busses also)

      If we’re going to “socialize” the younger generation and “educate” them, we need to pay attention to the details of what exactly the students are being “educated” in. A lot of adults have refused to look at this, and I refuse to condemn kids for the failings of the adults who were paid and delegated to look after their interests (but didn’t)

      Covfefe – if you didn’t come from that world, its hard to understand. Life can be really difficult living in some of these places.

      But please don’t assume dumb thug. What is in wikipedia may be true – but you could put the name of many a hollywood star or musician in lieu of A$AP’s.

    Brilliance by our VSG. Many wins without cost to him. Chronologically, I think ASAP before his AOC/squad commentary? I would not be at all surprised if he did not know about ASAP before his AOC (Ilhan) comments. Demographically, ASAP an obvious win. He drew all the left in, even doubled down to bring them in closer, kept it up. Sweden is (was) a very liberal dream place. Then he dropped it on everyone to see what Sweden has become. He knew what the video showed. Face it, without Trumps bringing it up, no one would know a thing about it.

    I’m sure Kanye heard about this as soon as it happened and saw a great opportunity. This proves his value to Trump and his “woke” status.

    Brilliance by Trump. The left now won’t know what he will do next.

    I came here to crack a joke about “Stockholm syndrome” but after reading more, I don’t see this as so funny any longer. What I see now is a pack of Muslims who are offended at the existence of a successful entertainer from the USA. And while “investigations” should have already revealed this guy and his group are innocent of any western law violation, it’s pretty clear there is another “independent judiciary” at work here.

    The unspoken law broken is offending Muslims by being one’s own self.

    I think “Stockholm syndrome” as a name for a psychological condition or state may change meaning.

        It’s not like we don’t get that. But European culture and law is the source of culture, law and political process here in the United States. We inherently expect certain things which are presently being denied in the UK and in Europe.

        It is why I am 110% with Trump as he “re-evaluates” our political allegiances with Europe and other countries. The way the UK is treating Tommy Robinson is horrifying. The way Sweden is treating A$AP is also horrible. They aren’t just in violation of “our standards.” They are in violation of their own long standing standards and traditions.

    He hit a muslim migrant. In Sweden they hand over their children to be raped by muslims there’s no such thing as defending oneself against a muslim.

    Remember when the muslim beheaded that woman and her son in a Swedish Ikea – Sweden locked up kitchen knives because knitchen utensils were the problem.

    There are also stories of women trying to report their rapes by muslims and the Swedish authorities threatening them with hate crime charges.

    Remember that Russian father had to flee Sweden with his three little girls because the Swedish government had taken his three very young Christian daughters and given them to a muslim family that apparently were terrifying them on top of the government kidnapping Christian children and giving them to muslim migrants to do with as they please. (thing about what was probably happening to those girls).

    Sweden is insane, No free or moral person should have anything to do with them.

    I expect justice will be expedite henceforth.

    “Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative….

    “….Our teams will be talking further, and we agreed to speak again in the next 48 hours!”

    Sweden, however, does not have a bail system, unlike the US.

    More than 600,000 people have signed a #JusticeforRocky petitioncalling for the release of the Grammy-nominated rapper, alleging that he is being kept at a prison with “horrific” conditions.
