Peter Tosh Son Beat while serving time for Ganja

in Reggae News by
The family of Peter Tosh have recently filed a civil rights suit against the U.S. Department of Justice after the son of the legendary Wailer, 37 year-old Jawara McIntosh was beaten into a coma while serving time in a New Jersey jailΒ on a ganja possession charge.
The February 21st assault resulted in severe head injuries and has since left McIntosh in a coma(now 4 months).
Attorney Jasmine Rand has represented the families of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown and is now representing the Tosh family.
They are also seeking the immediate release of additional information and evidence from the incident, and have sent a request to the Department of Justice, asking for an impartial investigation into what transpired at the jail.

Have the prison authorities become so emboldened after the recent flare up of attacks against young men of color in the streets?

Does this have anything to do with the new administrations hard left stance on immigration? Since the proliferation of legalized ganja in US states it is sickening to believe that young men of color continue to be picked up, charged, convicted and sent to prison for possession of marijuana which is now being used in global pharmaceuticals.
I think its a good time to review one of Tosh’s most recognized anthems Legalize It.
