One charming motherfucker: Stockholm syndrome Jan Erik “Janne” Olsso

28 Jul

The term “stockholm syndrome” was coined after the Norrmalmstorg robbery which occurred in Stockholm, Sweden in 1973.

Basically, after the 5-day hostage situation in the bank, the hostages demonstrated loyalty to their captors and even defended them.

The leader of the robbery was Jan Erik “Janne” Olsso. He served 10 years for his robbery. He was in the news recently, and this is why I bring it up. He decided to turn himself in for other crimes he had been wanted for after being released from jail. He had been on the run for 10 years. This is ONE CHARMING motherfucker:

“Olsson decided to turn himself in. “I said that now I want to get rid of this baggage I’ve carried for almost 15 years.”

The guilt-ridden thief found needn’t have worried. Upon arriving at the police station on the west coast of Sweden, Olsson was at first encouraged to stay on the run by a policeman.”

Then after he managed to turn himself in, the prosecutor dropped all charges.
