Can Buju Banton's legal team establish reasonable doubt in the face of the damning evidence presented in a Tampa court yesterday?

 

 

That is the question on the lips of most industry insiders as the reggae music icon's trial moved into a second day.

Prosecutors presented video of a government informant Alexander Johnson, the Grammy nominated singer and Ian Thomas entering a warehouse in Sarasota, Fla. The video
depicts a telling scene where Thomas cuts a kilo open whereupon the rastafarian approaches, takes the knife, wipes it and tastes his finger.

Another video shows Thomas and co-defendant James Mack being arrested while attempting to purchase cocaine at the warehouse two days later. Banton was arrested later that day at his South Florida home. Buju's lawyer cross-examined Alexander Johnson, the government informer, and tried to punch holes in his arguments.

The trial continues today.
