Crap Arrest of the Week

For being into Heavy Metal!

14 'devil worshippers' in Morocco received jail sentences ranging from three months to one year for 'undermining the
Muslim faith' and 'possessing objects contrary to good morals'. Nine of the men, belonged to local heavy metal bands and the rest were fans. Among the objects exhibited in court to show they were in league with the devil was a black T-shirt with heavy metal symbols on it. This prompted the judge to comment that 'normal people go to concerts in a
suit and tie'.
