AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Arrested in New Zealand for Attempting to Arrange a Murder, Threatening to Murder and Drug Possession (Update: Tauranga Crown Solicitor Withdraws Attempt to Procure Murder Charge)

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap …

60 year old Phil Rudd, the longtime drummer of AC/DC, has been arrested in New Zealand for allegedly trying to have two men killed and charged with attempting to “procure” a murder. Rudd was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and threatening to kill. According to the charges by police, Rudd had tried to get two men killed,  their names and that of the intended hitman were all suppressed by the judge. Rudd has yet to enter a plea and is due back in court again on November 27.

AC/DC – Guns For Hire

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested in New Zealand on Thursday morning local time and charged with attempting to procure a murder, as first reported by Stuff.co.nz. A member of the Tauranga Central division of New Zealand Police confirmed Rudd’s arrest to Rolling Stone, but did not provide any additional details. According to Stuff, Rudd allegedly tried to have two as-yet-unidentified men killed and was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.

The longtime drummer appeared in Tauranga District Court on Thursday afternoon local time and was released on bail. He is due back for his next hearing on November 27th and faces up to 10 years in prison on the murder-for-hire charge if convicted. New Zealand police have yet to reveal any details behind Rudd’s arrest or who were the intended victims. According to New Zealand news outlet The Sun, Rudd was “accused of procuring murder” between September 25th and 26th.

The drug charges pertain to a raid on the 60-year-old drummer’s house conducted by police on Thursday.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on New Zealand murder plot charge, Band comments:

AC/DC are due to release a new album later this year.

A statement on the band’s website said: “We’ve only become aware of Phil’s arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment.

“Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.”

UPDATE I: Phil Rudd, AC/DC drummer, has most serious charge in alleged New Zealand murder-for-hire plot withdrawn.

A New Zealand crown solicitor withdrew the most serious charge against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on Thursday, dropping the attempting to procure murder charge in an alleged murder plot involving “working girls.”

A disheveled Rudd, 60, appeared “thunderstruck” in Tauranga District Court on Wednesday, hours after his waterfront mansion was raided by police and faced several charges, including threatening to kill as well as possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.

Paul Mabey, Rudd’s attorney, said in a statement that an overzealous New Zealand police investigation pushed their case without consulting Tauranga Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones, who agreed Thursday to strike the attempting to procure murder charge.

“The charge alleging an Attempt to Procure Murder should never have been laid,” Mabey said. “The Crown Solicitors opinion was not sought. The charge is now withdrawn — within 24 hours of Mr. Rudd’s first appearance in court.”

Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder Endorses Shorter Prison Sentences for Certain Nonviolent Drug Traffickers

Eric Holder’s Department of Injustice: Are you kidding, are they trying to completely destroy America?

Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder now wants to propose shorter prison sentences for certain nonviolent drug traffickers. Not non-violent drug users, but drug dealers. So as long as you are not violent, you have the green light to traffic and deal drugs, according to Holder.  The U.S. Sentencing Commission proposed in January to modifying the guideline penalties so that many drug trafficking crimes would be tied to shorter sentencing ranges. The Justice Department says the effect would be to reduce by 11 months the average sentence of a drug trafficking offender and would trim the federal prison population by roughly 6,550 inmates over the next five years. GREAT … and we can have 6,550 formerly imprisoned drug dealers out on the streets to traffic in drugs again. BRILLIANT!!!

Drug Deal

Last night Bill O’Reilly had two Democrats on The Factor last night, Patrick Fennedy and Christopher Kennedy Lawford, discussing the ills of the legalization of marijuana. This is just the legalization of pot, Holder wants to set drug dealers free earlier who traffic in even worse things like heroin, crack, etc. Just curious, is Obama and Holder trying to destroy America entirely?

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), a former prescription drug addict who has been one of the most prominent anti-pot voices in America of late, railed against the nascent marijuana industry for targeting teenagers… some time in the future. “They are going to make their money off of people like myself who are addicts and I just don’t think this is the kind of thing that makes our country stronger, families stronger and of course jeopardizes the public health at large.”

Just when viewers may have thought O’Reilly’s next guest would argue the other side of the issue, Christopher Kennedy Lawford came on even stronger against legalization. “The two most damaging drugs on the planet are legal alcohol and nicotine, we don’t need another legal drug,” he said. “Legalization will increase prevalence. Our youth are at risk.”

ABC News:

Attorney General Eric Holder is endorsing a proposal that would result in shorter prison sentences for certain nonviolent drug traffickers, saying the change would rein in bloated federal prison costs and create a fairer criminal justice system.

Holder was to appear Thursday before the U.S. Sentencing Commission, where he was scheduled to announce his support for a commission proposal to lower the guideline penalties for certain drug crimes.

“This overreliance on incarceration is not just financially unsustainable, it comes with human and moral costs that are impossible to calculate,” Holder said in excerpts of his testimony, obtained by The Associated Press in advance.

The harshest penalties, he said, should be reserved for “dangerous and violent drug traffickers.”

CBS – San Francisco: 3rd-Graders Caught Smoking Pot In Sonora School Bathroom.

It used to be if you got caught, ‘Smokin’ in the Boy’s Room’, it was cigarettes and it was high school. However, not these days. It is the 3rd grade and POT!!! But wait, I thought so many are saying that pot is okay, it was those dastardly cigarettes that were evil. As Dana says in his commentary, be careful of what you wish for, you might just get it. So what band will be doing the next cover of The Brownville Station’s classic song and what will it be titled, ‘Tokin’ in the Elementary School Boy’s Room’?

Three third-grade students at a Sonora elementary school were busted for smoking pot in the school’s bathroom last week.

Two 8-year-olds and a 9-year-old were caught by another student, who immediately informed school administrators.  Those officials then alerted local police.

The students were questioned by officers, and later released to their parents on February 27th.
