Mos Def Getting Arrested at the VMA Awards

It’s one thing to read about this incident in the news, but its another thing to see live video of it. The news reports made it seem like Mos Def was performing on the side of the street with a boombox, but actually the dude had a pretty elaborate setup for a street perormance. Not only that, but they had a performance permit, so of course, the cops had no right to shove him the the way that they did. But hey, they’re the NYPD…nothing changes.
