Rastafarians Disrupt Court Proceedings

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (PANA) - Chaos broke
out in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate's Court
on Thursday afternoon, when a group of rastafarians
stripped naked, hurled abuse at court officials
and threatened to urinate in the court.

Just sounds like a typical City Council Meeting in Dallas to me.

"The group were dressed in plastic bags and blankets, and were carrying marijuana plants which they said they were permitted to own.

According to the Natal Mercury newspaper, leader Peter Tosh, his wife Mystic Tosh, and their children Jeffrey Tosh, Herbalist Tosh and Prince Tosh had been charged for possessing marijuana which is a criminal offence in South Africa.

The group earlier informed the magistrate that they rejected the notion that marijuana is an illegal substance and demanded their release.

They demanded to be released and then jumped onto the seats in the dock when court officials attempted to subdue them.

The children in the group were released but they refused to go home. The case was postponed and the entire group is in custody. "

A few people go looney toons in a court and you put up the "headline" R2P chaos in South Africa.

Gads how pitiful can you get?

No wonder this forum is considered the biggest joke on the web.
