It could be the first of its kind, at least at the Kirseberg Prison in Malmo.
“I have worked within the prisons and probation service since 1986 and I have never experienced a situation where behavior of this sort has led to punishment,” said Anders Ericksson, in an article in The Local
The guards caught on to the wordless protest a few weeks ago, during a card game between inmates. Apparently the inmate felt the gas pressure building, and rather than offending the other inmates, he decided to relieve the pressure elsewhere – next to the guards.
“I had an upset stomach while I was playing cards but did not want to fart there. So I went over to the guards instead,” the 21-year-old convict said.
This was not the first time he’d acted in such a manner, but guards are hoping it’s the last. The inmate was brought in for questioning, and was warned against any future similar behavior.
