Paintball Enthusiasts Arrested

God bless the lawyers called upon to defend the indefensible.

As 17 men were arrested today for plotting a terrorist attack on Australian soil, defense solicitors for the men arrested in Melbourne have come up with a novel excuse for the illegal arms they carried:

Defence lawyers suggested the men were paintball enthusiasts and that jihad did not include military action but a spiritual struggle for religious purity.
Ah, that would explain the holy hell their supporters were raising outside the court.

The court was told security officials wanted the Magistrate to know about an incident outside court between a group of the men's supporters and the media where a cameraman was assaulted by four men.
Be warned. The above link is rated M - for violence, coarse language, adult themes and violent Muslims.
