Yes Buju Sing because Jah Hears You Rastaman

Will The Babylon Judge Ever Come to his Right Mind and Stop this madness ?

His attorney has argued that the reggae artiste is under financial strain, having to pay US$20,000 a month to a 24-hour security detail that was a part of his bail conditions, as well as the cost of preparing for his retrial next February.

However, US Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli said the singer’s financial pressures do not outweigh the risk that he might flee, and refused the request.

Why do they think Buju is going to cause a fracas if he performs on Boxing Day ? that’s a traditional big show day for Jamaican Reggae Artists – and one of Buju’s highest earning concert days.

Usually the fall holiday season brings in most of the money in Reggae. Typically since people don’t traditionally go to shows in the summer. The Fall and Winter months are the largest earning months for performers; and by not permitting Buju to perform he is preventing him from even having money to live on.

Let us not forget that He (Buju) has to pay the courts $20,000.00 a month for his security detail.  So tell us now Logically  – How come he can’t work ?   He Has a Tether on and An Armed Guard Detail on Him 24 hrs a day.

Clealy he’s not a rich man like you Judge Porcelli.  (side-eye)

This man has not worked or earned income in more than a year and a half so why not Judge ?

Judge blanks Buju request to perform at concert

FLORIDA, United States, Friday November 26, 2010 – A Boxing Day concert in Miami will have to go on without drug-accused reggae singer Buju Banton, even though he’s been out on bail for the last two weeks.

That’s because a judge has turned down the Jamaican’s request to perform at the December 26th show.

His attorneys has argued that the reggae artiste is under financial strain, having to pay US$20,000 a month to a 24-hour security detail that was a part of his bail conditions, as well as the cost of preparing for his retrial next February.

However, US Magistrate Judge Anthony Porcelli said the singer’s financial pressures do not outweigh the risk that he might flee, and refused the request.

Buju, whose real name is Mark Myrie, was released on bail on November 10th, almost a year after being arrested on charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine and aiding and abetting two others in possessing a firearm during the course of distribution.

The 37-year-old faces life imprisonment and a fine of up to US$4 million if found guilty convicted.

His first trial, which lasted a week, ended with a hung jury in September.
