Well, it does not surprise me that he is praying to get out of this jam. However, Haile Selassie (i.e. Jesus) would not be there, he is dead. This guys have spread enough hate through their music, no amount of calling upon a sky daddy or on a dead man can help; however, he is forwarding (going) to jail. That is a reality; scene.

He still going to prison though which means all the prayers were in vain. Sad.
