BREAKING -- Buju Banton Mistrial!

Here it is kids:
A Florida judge has declared a mistrial for the Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton, who was accused of conspiring to buy cocaine from an undercover police officer last year. U.S. District Judge James Moody declared a mistrial after the 12-person jury sent him a second note on Monday saying they couldn't reach a verdict. They had been deliberating since Thursday afternoon after a four-day trial.
In other news, federal prosecutor Sean Cronin decides to go swimming in Boston.

I thought this guy was finished already, the illegal wire taps weren't enough for him to lose his job let alone get disbarred? WTF?! Florida Bar, ANYONE HOME??

That concept -- that the U.S. Government should not be monitoring, surveilling and collecting data on individuals who are not under criminal investigation -- was once the hallmark of basic American liberty, so uncontroversial as to require no defense. But decades of effective fear-mongering over everything from Communists to drug kingpins -- and particularly the last decade of invoking the all-justifying, Scary mantra of Terrorism -- has reduced much of the American citizenry into a frightened and meek puddle of acquiescence which not only tolerates, but craves, a complete deprivation of privacy.

Don’t like the guy but to quote Cronin's lawyer, Joel Denaro, the charges are ``beyond absurd.''

he was swimming in a pool down by the river, not in Boston

True, but his mind was in the Charles.

who is stoopid enough to enter that e coli dripping petri dish they call a pool at finnegans? between my guatemalan lawn guy and his five gang banging jort wearing friends jumping in and peeing to the diaperless brown babies held by cinnamon mamacitas you would need a full blown hazmat scrubdown.

also, i'm calling bullshit on the mother covering the daughters eyes. notice how the victim has no age listed . . . i bet the "daughter" was 16 with a fake ID and the mother 30 both doing tequila shots at the bar.

if you ever have been to finnegans on a weekend afternoon you would know its not child friendly when the van full of club pink pussycat strippers rolls in for their paid appearances. hell the place is just like the mondrian, only with the sabor of hialeah gardens
