This thesis aims to analyze some of the methods used by the Swedish police. The thesis is based on news and debate articles. From a sociology of law perspective, the climate of opinion can have an effect on the methods used by the legal authorities. The conclusion points towards the notion that discrimination on an institutional level upholds the image of "the othe"’ within the Swedish justice system and on a societal level. (Less)
