Yesterday Reggae/Dancehall artist Sizzla Kalonji was charged for using expletives during a performance at the Falmouth Police Station. The artist who was invited by the police to perform at an event they were doing in aid of community safety and security apparently began his performance by completely berating the police. The police officers did not take kindly to his opening remarks and immediately charged him.
There was mix reaction from the patrons that were in attendance. Some felt that Sizzla was out of line for saying the things he did knowing that he was invited by the police department. Others however, believed that the police were wrong to invite him in the first place because they were fully aware of what a Sizzla Kalonji show is all about. There are still others who take the view that Sizzla Kalonji was set up by the police because they knew that he would use expletives.
The entire incident is very unfortunate!
