The other day I posted Strange Corners of Privacy Law, in which Ohio sheriff’s deputies brought suit about music videos featuring their fruitless search of a rapper’s house, after which $400 appears to have somehow vanished (details, alas, hard to find as the deputies turned off their body cams). Here now is one of the allegedly offending videos in question by Afroman, “Will You Help Me Repair My Door”,
Not exactly breaking new ground musically, but a mellow accompaniment to to the footage of a failed search. Apparently, the warrant was not just for drugs, but also kidnapping!
If you’re hungry for more where that came from, there’s also Lemon Pound Cake…
As noted in the comment to the earlier post, I found a link to the text of the complaint. Yes, a real lawyer signed this.
