Inmate Charged In Beating of Peter Tosh's Son


Earlier this month reggae icon Peter Tosh's son, Jawara McIntosh, was beaten into a coma while serving a six month jail sentence for marijuana possession in New Jersey [click here if you missed that].

A fellow inmate has been indicted...

According to reports Kyrie Baum, who was being held at the Bergen County Jail on robbery and gun charges, has been charged with aggravated assault.

McIntosh remains hospitalized and unresponsive after suffering serious brain damage.

Not familiar with Peter Tosh but this is fucked up. Maybe a guy serving time for marijuana possession shouldn't be serving time with people who have nothing to lose🤷🏿‍♂️ Maybe a guy shouldn't be serving time at all for marijuana possession🤷🏿‍♂️ Hopefully the Tosh family bankrupts the state of New Jersey...

And true Rastafari don't let anyone mess with their camp

Damn that's a shame, I hope he recovers his dad was a true reggae legend, part of the wailers who sang with Bob Marley. As for this dude that did this he's as good as dead, dead man walking.

Peter Tosh was down with Bob Marley back in the the day very instrumental in reggae music, in fact he stepped out on his own, and I believe Mick Jagger tried to look out for him. Mick let Peter stay at his house while he was on your. Peter lost it while he was there,realizing how much money Mick had, and tore Micks house up while house up! Peter is responsible for one of the hottest reggae jawns back in the day. look up "legalize it" "legalize it yeah, yeah and I will advertise it" Basically Peter was the "Lisa left eye lopes" of the Wailers back in the day. he did what he wanted to do. And Bob kicked him out the group for that.

That was very dumb and ungrateful of Peter Tosh.

On topic, any type of normalcy of life after brain damage isn't very promising. It's all in God's hands.

I agree with @9:17 AM. The prison system needs to be restructured for inmates. Prisoners should be placed in areas according to the crime committed. Guards should be held accountable and prisoners who attack other prisoners (with the exception of self defense) should be double charged and put in solitary confinement for the duration of their sentence.

Marijuana is still illegal whether your state legalized it or not. Meaning you can't just fire up a blunt anywhere and start smoking. Either way this young man shouldn't have been locked up with this hardened criminal A hole.

^^^ 3:38pm...Peter was always kinda ignorant but helpful to others like that...His dad was killed violently when he was a little boy due to hanging with people he was warned about and the held him hostage with other people in his home and shot the place up killing him and (I think) one or two people ,wounding the rest...
