Should Police Seize Equipments If Promoter Has No Permit?

I would love to get your honest answer to this question.

If a DJ, Sound System or Selector is playing at a party for which the promoter has no permit and law enforcement officers (police) came and shut it down, do you think he/she has the right to confiscate their equipment?.

I know one question you are going to ask is, did the DJ/Selector knew that the promoter did not have the permit? or on the other hand, he did know.

Let's play devils' advocate, and say he did not know? What do you think?.

I think they should prosecute the promotor of the event?. But don't take my words for it, what do you think, who is at fault here?.

We would love to get your feedback on this very touchy topic. Post your views/comments below.

Should Police Seize Equipments If Promoter Has No Permit?

It is stupid for the police to seize equipment. The offender is the Promoter, so the equipment has nothing to do with the offence. Should the police seize the car if you dont are not carrying a driving licence?

Police taking away Sound System Equipments
by: Shermaine

Am not really sure, but I knew of an incident in which a sound system equipment was taken by the police and the ower had to go to court and pay a fine of over $70,000JMD.

I think the party had gone pass permitted time.

That's my two cents on this issue.
