Following the 9/11 attack by Muslims in the nation illegally, Congress and President Bush tightened the law against terrorism.
Now the Los Angeles police departmet is abusing that law by charging rapper P. Diddy with TERRORISM after an altercation with a UCLA coach who apparently was terrorizing P. Diddy's son.
From Fox News:
LOS ANGELES – Rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs was released from a Los Angeles jail late Monday, hours after he was arrested following a fight with a football coach at UCLA, where his son, Justin Combs, plays as a defensive back.
A representative for Combs' company said the hip hop mogul was defending himself in the fight.
"The various accounts of the event and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate," Nathalie Moar, a rep for Combs Enterprises, said in a statement to The Associated Press. "What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son."
Jail records showed that Combs was released after posting bail. The records showed that Combs' bail was $160,000, but sheriff's officials reached by phone said he posted $50,000. The reason for the discrepancy wasn't clear.
A rep from UCLA confirmed to Fox News that Combs, 45, was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, which was a kettlebell. Later Monday, Los Angeles police updated the charges to three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, one count of making terrorist threats and one count of battery.This is an abuse that should cost the lawyer who OK'd this his law license. I understand loading up charges to get a plea bargain. But I do not get the Los Angeles Police Department making a mockery of the war on terrorism by charging him with terrorism. Frankly, it is time to repeal laws.
In fact, P. Diddy should use citizen's arrest to file counter-charges of terrorism against the authorities who are trying to make him out to be Osama bin Diddy.
