We're not going to hold our breath waiting for Jamaica to do anything about hate dancehall - the courts seem pretty powerless to take action against the sort of things they actually care about. Sizzla had been convicted of swearing on stage, but failed to turn up for the community service ordered by the court. As a result, he was sentenced to 15 days in prison, but on appeal this was reduced to a fine of USD32.79. However, Sizzla may yet get his chance to find out what it's like sharing a cramped cell with other guys - the police are still investigating a bunch of guns they found on his property.
