Lil’ Boosie Will Make You Ass Catch A Case

A 19-year-old man was arrested in Brookville, Florida on Sunday (February 3) for singing a Lil Boosie song with explicit lyrics in the presence of children. According to Tampa Bay’s News 10, Amy Churchill, the children’s mother, called the police to report that Christopher Holder was yelling out profanities a he walked with two younger kids on Brookville’s Gordon Loop. An offense report notes that Churchill explained that she did not think her children should have to hear that sort of language.

When deputies arrived, Holder explained that he was just singing a song by Baton Rouge artist Lil Boosie. The report revealed that Holder himself told the deputies that he didn’t believe that children should have to hear profanity either. Nonetheless, he was taken to the Hernando County jail and charged with disorderly conduct. It is unclear which Boosie track Holder was singing. [source]

It’s just that easy huh? Well, I want to file an offense report on my cousin for rapping Shawty Lo’s “Dunn Dunn” in my car.

Ethiopian Students Hunger Strike Over Politics, Beyonce

Ethiopian Students Hunger Strike Over Politics, Beyonce

Why must I cry?!

Students at Ethiopia’s top religious college are protesting the close ties between the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and the government, alleged restictions on their speech — and American singer Beyonce’s recent meeting with their patriarch.

The 26-year-old performer met with the Ethiopian patriarch, Abune Paulos, before performing in skimpy sequined outfits as part of celebrations of the country’s millennium, which fell in September according to the church’s calendar.

Daniel Techale, a 28-year-old Theological College of the Holy Trinity alumnus who lives at the college, said he was not protesting but that around 30 of his friends had been hospitalized after a hunger strike they began on Sunday. He said students were upset by the church’s closeness to the ruling party and restrictions on their speech, but that they also were upset over the Beyonce-Paulos meeting.

“She provoked the whole situation,” he said, accusing the patriarch of “practically a non-religious act. It’s unacceptable, or inappropriate, to say the least.”

Authorities were trying to persuade the students to end their hunger strike, he said…

Not all the students were concerned with the singer, or even politics. Student Kinetibebeu Assefa, 25, said that he had joined the protest to demand an improvement in cafeteria food and demand the firing of some college officials.

“There is no problem with Beyonce,” he said. “But the (cafeteria) food is poisoned.”

College official Bedilu Assefa confirmed that students had complained, but said: “What they have done is they have raised some administrative issues regarding food and clinical facilities. Nobody has protested against Beyonce. Never.” (continue)
