Clueless Canadian Cops Give Dude Ticket for Singing Along With His Jam: Video

“St-Laurent man`s love of music is proving costly after he said he was given a $149 ticket for singing `Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)` while driving.

On Sept. 27, Taoufik Moalla was on his way to get a bottle of water from Provigo. He was headed down St. Croix, cheerfully singing along to the 1990 C+C Music Factory hit, when he heard a police siren behind him.

`I was thinking they wanted to pass, but they called on the speaker `Please go to the right side,` said Moalla. `I stopped and four police came, two on each side, and checked the inside of the car. Then they asked me if I screamed. I said no, I was just singing.`

Police checked his license and registration and came back with the ticket for screaming in his car.”

Y`all know what happens when your jam comes on the radio, you get jiggy with it, and while the music is on you are oblivious to your surroundings.

I can`t dance worth a lick, but when my jam comes on (Bob Marley`s Jammin) I`m going to dance like a mother regardless if I`m in my shower, cubicle at work, or in my ride.

Trying to stop a person from grooving when his jam comes on is like trying to stop one of Pavolv`s dogs from salivating when he sees his bowl brimming with food.

Those clueless Canadian cops need to chill the hell out, smoke some weed and listen to Bob Marley, how dare they give Moalla a ticket for singing along with his jam.

New Study: Dogs Love Reggae

“The Scottish SPCA and the University of Glasgow have published a paper which suggests music affects dogs` behaviour.

Researchers played a variety of music to dogs at a rehoming centre in Dumbarton and assessed physiological and behavioural changes.

Prof Neil Evans said the most positive behaviour changes were seen when the dogs were played reggae and soft rock.

All though these genres stood out, he said the study suggested each dog had its own music tastes.

The study suggested that dogs spent significantly more time lying and significantly less time standing when music was played, regardless of genre.”


I always have music playing whether I`m at work, on the road or at home, sometimes I even let music lull me to sleep. My pooch, Mandy, seems to approve of my musical tastes, she`s never barked in disapproval even when I indulge in a guilty pleasure like Abba. Although I suspect she may draw the line at soft rock, fortunately that genre is anathema in my home.

I have a library of hundreds of CD`s, my dog is used to an eclectic mix of music, but Bob Marley`s Greatest Hits is one of my favorite albums, and I play it at least once a week.

Catching some rays in my backyard while Bob Marley blares from my stereo with Mandy chilling by my side, that`s as close to heaven as I`ll get this side of eternity. Surrounded by empty bags of Doritos, the music transports us to a higher plane.

With a decent sound system, a loyal reggae loving pooch, and a stash you can survive a Zombie Apocalypse or the Trump administration.
