Too fit to be legal

According to Svenska Dagbladet, a female police officer in central Stockholm thought that a man she met at late night could possibly not have acquired his very fit muscles without using illegal substances. The suspect denied any wrong doing saying that the muscles were a result of his hard training. The officer took him to a medical expertise whereby the tests returned negative.

The wrongful suspect subsequently filed a complaint against the officer but the prosecutor closed the case. Janne Magnusson, another officer at Stockholm’s narcotic police says he would have regarded a late night intervention under similar circumstances as “somewhat ambitious”.

Maybe the Swedish legislature should specify how fit a citizen is allowed to be to fit in the legal framework. On the other hand, the politicians could also specify the concept of reasonable suspicion and probable cause for search and arrest.
