Breaking News: A mob of angry zebra protesters have broken into riot outside the crystal castle playset tonight following the announcement that Discord will not be banished for his violent actions last season. A grand jury of 9 ponies and 3 zebras decided to not banish the draconequus after months of heated deliberations.
Officer Discord, seen here in this file photo, was brought up on allegations of having destroyed the home of local zebra Zecora Rangi on basis of racial prejudice, using chaos seeds. Discord has been on record showing disdain for Princess Sparkles "Zebra Friend" shortly after the attack.
The grand jury evaluated all of the evidence presented to them by the White Flashback Potion, and despite the Zebra's viral chanting of "Our hooves up, please don't shoot, lock him up, we won't loot" decided not to banish Discord, who many claim has a history of abusing his powers maliciously.
Many have been critical of the official response of leaving Zecora "out in the woods" for several hours after the attack began, before doing anything to assist her.
Many of the members of the grand jury, including Coco Pommel, Aryanne, Surprise, Bulk Biceps, Vinyl Scratch, Rarity, and Princess Celestia, have come under fire for believing that Officer Discord's actions were "justifiable".
Royal guards have been dispatched to Ponyville to quell the unrest, and have barricaded the crystal palace where the zebras have gathered to protest the decision. At press time, the zebras have begun lobbing moltov potions at the armed guards. More on this story as it develops.
