Willie Nelson To Sing For His Freedom

Hudspeth County Attorney Kit Bramblett has come up with a novel way to punish famed country singer and marijuana legalisation advocate Willie Nelson.

Nelson was arrested last November after police officers smelt dagga from within his tour bus as it entered Hudspeth County, Texas.

Six ounces of the holy herb were confiscated from the bus and Nelson, who claimed the marijuana as his, had to post a $2, 500 bail before being let on his way.

He had just returned from Mexico.

Mr Bramblett told the press : “I’m gonna let him plead, pay a small fine and he’s gotta sing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” with his guitar right there in the courtroom.

“You bet your a** I ain’t gonna be mean to Willie Nelson”.

He later joked : “Between me and the sheriff, we threw out enough of it or smoked enough so that there’s only three ounces, which is within my jurisdiction”.

County Judge Becky Walker’s has Nelson called to her desk when the case file reached her.

Nelson has been in trouble with the law over his love for marijuana before and was again arrested in January this year with members of his band in North Carolina.

    ‘Jury Nullification’ folks! The jury is the 4th branch of government. The jury is for more than just determining whether or not a person is guilty or innocent, it is also where we the people get to decide if we agree with a law or not. During prohibition, 60% of the charges for violating the anti-alcohol legislation were thrown out by juries. That is why they ultimately repealed the law.
    The government is trying to push ‘We The People’ into a revolution so that they can institute martial law and worse on us, don’t give in. Educate yourselves as to what the law really is. If you are called to jury duty, and it is not a capital case, rule not guilty if you don’t think the law should exist, you have that right.
    Stop participating in the annual tax scam. In approx. 1996, the IRS said that there were approx. 10,000,000 non-filers! Become one of them! If everyone quit participating in it, you can believe the criminals in Washington would take notice. We don’t need another revolution, we need to start doing what is right and quit submitting, unless of course, you like to be a slave.
