    ok, so everyone is up in arms about Grooverider being in prison for getting caught with an almost non-exestant amount of weed and a lil porn. Now, dotn get me wrong the laws out there are so ridiculous, but its still the law. People know this and therefore should not take weed out with them. i know what ya gonna say, he didnt know it was on him!! SO!!

    i went to Dubai 3 yeasr ago and i am quite a heavy smoker, therefore before i went i double checked everyhting makin sure i havd no weed on me. i also know someone who has been in prison over there for the same offense, dont remember facebook groups/ internet petitions / forum posts being set up demanding his release.


    As i have already said, yes i think the rules are very harsh, but they are still the rules. maybe if this country became a bit more sturn with their laws the place wouldn't be such a f**k up


    rant over.

    Welcome to the world Tony...

    If you're a bit famous and something happens to you then it's facebook groups, media campaigns and petitions... If you're a nobody then nothing happens, that's how the media works and social networking works...

    Look at the case of Ben Kinsella - killed by some Thug with a knife and you get loads of publicity, campaign in the mirror etc, why? Because his sister was in Eastenders for a bit...

    What was he, the 18th killed this year or something like that, can anyone even name any of the others?

    Media campaigns love to focus around somebody in the public eye, otherwise nobody would care, that's just the way thing are man, it's just how it works... Unless you know someone personally, they have to be famous for you to take notice...

    shit man....... well........ sorry to say.... but your mate isnt one of the logest running DJs d'nb has ever seen....... nor is he an iconic figure in the music industry....... so....... i doubt he'll get a f/b group done.......or forum threads.........

    and as for the sentance..... yeh fair enough.... he should have checked...... but you and i know that if your rollin with as much money as Rider has....... 10bag of weed could quite easily be mislayed and forgotten about...... especially if its in a pair of jeans that you may have worn out a few days ago and have rushed to get your shit together....... i know he was rushin to get his stuff...... as i had spoken to him on AIM , literally a few hours before he had to leave......


    Everyone makes mistakes...... rider has made a pretty big one to be fair and is paying the price..... i dont think that 3years is a suitable term when there are far more public effecting crimes in this world that get less terms..... he didnt harm anyone nor did he intend to..... probably wanted to get to his hotel..... smoke a joint and have a wank before hitting the sack......??...... dont know..... but to me the evidence points to that...... hahaha

    nah not saying he shouldn't follow the rules...... youve mixed together two different points........

    point. one..... your mates not famous.... so he wont get a facebook group...


    point two..... yeh he made a mistake..... and esy one when you have that sort of money.... not like us were we know exactly where our 5's of draw is located on our body.... and it never leaves our sides....... but the sentance is abit harsh...... but yeh like you said thats the rules...... and he payin for it....

    Were you born in a cave last year by any chance tony...? I do agree this topic is rinsed and Grooverider should deal with it, but it's quite a big thing so people will carrying on debating it...

    you don't know how funny this comment is...

    And not in the way you're thinking...

    You know what's really weird - I had already started to write my "welcome to the world..." post before the welcome to 8 months post came up...

    Welcome to world of the strange
