White House Inter-Scandinavian-American Beer Summit

Jeff Swanson shares the story of his egregious arrest in Chapel Hill, NC, by a Norwegian-American police officer, Sgt. Sigurd Bjornstad. He calls upon President Obama to hold a Scandinavian-American beer summit at the White House. "If this happened to me right here in my home town, while I was breaking into my own minivan, it could happen to any other Swedish-American academic in the United States," Swanson says.

UPDATE! Sgt. Bjornstad has posted his own video disputing Swanson's version of the arrest and suggesting a Lutefisk Summit to address inter-Scandinavian hostilities.
