Creep with me as I crawl through the hood…

Rapper DMX was arrested again this weekend. This time, the rapper, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was nabbed mid-concert Saturday night in Trinidad, where police officers accused him of using profane language. According to the Associated Press, the 28-year-old performer was taken from the stage because public use of obscene language is illegal in Trinidad (Foxy Brown’s July 3 concert was stopped for similar allegations). DMX spent the night in jail and is scheduled for a court appearance today…(source)

A Jamaican artiste was actually arrested recently for using obscene language while performing on stage. However, there are many people who believe that freedom of expression gives artistes the right to use obscene language and satanic lyrics in songs. No wonder our society continues to decay.

IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE OBSCENE LANGUAGE IN PUBLIC IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

another law first instituted by British colonial authorities and upheld by successive post-independence regimes (and how suitable post-independence is here).

Similar laws were promulgated late into colonial rule, to prohibit DRUMMING and banning participation in SHOUTER BAPTIST practices: “It shall be an offence for any person to hold or to take part in or to attend any Shouters’ meeting or for any Shouters’ meeting to be held in any part of the Colony indoors or in the open air at any time of the day or night.”

Now, about that Internet thing…is it public or private in Trinidad? Because we would not want some anti-colonialist business causing moral degeneration, and if China can censor the Internet and if Saudi Arabia can censor the Internet, and if Brazil can ban YouTube and WordPress…then maybe we should ban…

DEM MUDDER CUNT WHO ABUSIN’ WE FUCKIN’ LAWS TROUGH DE INTERNET
