I fear Dubai is never going to be a global city of sin only because they are relaxed, but they aren't THAT relaxed.

I expect tons of stories like this if we make it to a Qatar World Cup.

Oh make light of it, but he will have to survive a month locked up with a bunch of hardened middle-finger raising, Islam-insulting, alcohol-drinking criminals.

How did they handcuff a one-armed drummer?

I'm raising both of my middle fingers to Islam right now.

Come and get me you misogynistic inbred camel-farkers.

When you get thrown into that sort of prison, just ululate the Imam you see.

Sweet symbolism Brosephine, May have to fly out to Dubai and drink your face off to get an actual reaction.

Oh stop hiding behind the "Islamophobia" card. Everyone is rational to have a phobia of hardcore religionists, whether they be Muslims, Christians or Jews.

So... He gets out Friday or Saturday.

I doubt the Dubai jail for westerners is much worse than a Holiday Inn without a TV. Most rockers would pay a thousand dollars a day to get that sober.
 
2014-04-29 11:06:58 PM  
When you travel to countries controlled by evil zealous regime, you have to expect shiat like this.

Just because they're playing with the notion of being modern and forward-looking, doesn't mean they actually are.

He had to spend another four months in the detention centre where he spent his time reading books and playing chess in conditions he described as "appalling".
"They don't have toilets, they have holes in the ground. There's eight people to a cell and they do treat you alright don't get me wrong but it's just horrible seeing so many people come in for nothing," he admitted.

You just described the Orthodox ruling class of Israel, save for the bestiality.

But I think demanding other people's children fight your wars for you while your own are exempt from service is lower than quadruped-humping.

The issue here would be that this guy was intolerant, disturbed the peace and didn't love coexistence with other folks in the airport.

I'm usually of the opinion that you need to familiarize yourself with the laws of any foreign country you plan to visit and act accordingly, but these guys seem to take things a bit too far.

He probably forgot he had the cannabis on his person.

Now that I am familiar with the laws of UAE, I won't be visiting any time soon... Why go there when there's France, Iran, UK, Canada, Syria, etc...

Yeah, this?  I thought they had a big farewell tour a couple of years ago? Did someone in Dubai offer them a dump truck full of money?

Dubai is what you get when you combine arab/islamic culture and mentality with raging capitalism.
It ain't pretty.
