ፍርድ በግጥም


ታዋቂው የራፕ ሙዚቃ አቀንቃኝ ኤሚነም እኤአ በ1999 ዓ ም The Slim Shady LP በሚል ባወጣው አልበም ላይ Brain Damage የምትለው ዘፈኑ ፍርድ ቤት እንዲገተር ምክንያት ሆና ነበር በዚች ዘፈን ላይ ኤሚነም ተማሪ በነበረበት ወቅት አብሮት የሚማረው ደ አንጀሎ ቤሊ የተባለ ግለሰብ  ያዋርደው ይሰድበውና ይመታው እንደነበር በራፕ እያቀነቀነ የደረሰበትን በደል ይገልጻል ግለሰቡ ግን ‘ኤሚነም ጫፉ ላይ ደርሼ አላውቅም! በፍጹም ነክቼው አላውቅም’ ባይ ነው   ደ አንጀሎ ቤሊ ነገሩን በመካድ ብቻ አላበቃም  የኤሚነም ዘፈን መልካም ስምና ዝናዬን አጉድፏል በሚል ለደረሰበት ጉዳት ካሳ እንዲከፈለው በኤሚነም ላይ ክስ አቀረበበት

ክሱ የቀረበው በአሜሪካ ሚቺጋን ፍርድ ቤት ውስጥ ሲሆን ውሳኔውን የሰጡት ዳኛ ዲቦራ  ሰርቪቶ ይባላሉ  እኝህ ዳኛ የቀረበውን የስም ማጥፋት ክስ ውድቅ አድርገውታል  ታዲያ ይሄ ምኑ ይገርማል?

የሚገርመው የፍርድ ቤቱ ውሳኔ የተሰጠው በራፕ መሆኑ ነው በራፕ የተሰጠው ውሳኔ በተፃፈበት ቋንቋ እንደወረደ እንዲህ ይነበባል

 

Mr. Bailey complains that his rap is trash
So he’s seeking compensation in the form of cash
Bailey thinks he’s entitled to some monetary gain
Because Eminem used his name in vain

Eminem says Bailey used to throw him around
Beat him up in the john, shoved his face in the ground
Eminem contends that his rap is protected
By the rights guaranteed by the first amendment

Eminem maintains that the story is true
And that Bailey beat him black and blue
In the alternative he states that the story is phony
And a reasonable person would think it’s baloney

The Court must always balance the rights
Of a defendant and one placed in a false light
If the plaintiff presents no question of fact
To dismiss is the only acceptable act

If the language used is anything but pleasin’
It must be highly objectionable to a person of reason
Even if objectionable and causing offense
Self-help is the first line of defense

Yet when Bailey actually spoke to the press
What do you think he didn’t address?
Those false light charges that so disturbed
Prompted from Bailey not a single word.

So highly objectionable it could not be
–Bailey was happy to hear his name on a CD
Bailey also admitted he was a bully in youth
Which makes what Marshall said substantial truth
This doctrine is a defense well known
And renders Bailey’s case substantially blown

The lyrics are stories no one would take as fact
They’re an exaggeration of a childish fact
Any reasonable person could clearly see
That the lyrics could only be hyperbole

It is therefore this Court’s ultimate position
That Eminem is entitled to summary disposition
