  • Randy Blythe indicted. I. Am. So. Pissed.

    After a terrific amount of international legal B.S., Randy Blythe of Lamb of God has been indicted in the Czech Republic on a manslaughter charge.



    "Blythe is facing the possibility of conviction and a long-term jail sentence after a 2010 incident in which a fan attending a LAMB OF GOD show died almost a month later, allegedly from injuries sustained when he was thrown off the stage. Blythe's predicament has galvanized the heavy rock community, with artists across the hard rock genre pledging their support."



    This has me beyond livid... anyone who has access to YouTube can see he never even touched the kid. An accident is just that

    I think the premise might be that it's someone's responsibility to keep the fans OFF the stage, thus making someone responsible, although I would agree with you that they have chosen the wrong person to blame.



    Where I live, you can't get anywhere near the stage, much less on it, even with 'opening' acts.

      Sounds like politics more than anything. I highly doubt the U.S will extradite him and as long as he stays the hell away from the Czech Republic, he should be okay.

        Is the Czech Republic part of the European Union?

            He has publicly said in interviews that if he is required to go back, he'll go back.



            We'll see if that actually happens now.

              He said he'd face it head on...I think I remember him saying something like "like a man".



              If he does, he's ****************ed.

                  I know you're just being a jabber, but there's a sincere point going on here: this dude fronts a band. Many people here do. Some guy pushed past security and jumped on the stage. The kid got pushed off the stage, and now the singer is being charged with his murder.



                  That's messed up.

                    What's really messed up is that the local gov't and/or venue didn't have clearly marked signage noting that moshing, slam dancing, stage diving, etc. was forbidden, and one that does so risks ejection and takes all responsibility for any injury like has pretty much been the standard practice in the US for any venue that wants to keep their doors open for the past few decades...



                    What is it there, the 1980's or something?

                    Oh wait...never mind.





                    It sucks that he wasn't found innocent, but thems the risks one takes plaing in foreign lands.

                    He's foolish to go back; bravado don't mean squat when you're in a cell.

                      Well, ya gotta figure that if the EU honors this indictment, his band won't be able to tour Europe anymore. That would probably be career-ending for a metal band. So he probably figures he's got nothing to lose by going to the mat.

                        I'm sure this will go to appeals court.

                          Is there a such thing in Czechoslovakia?

                            who knows.. but I'm sure that since they have electricity and toilets, that some form of law and appeals exists.

                              Not sure how it works in Czech, but an indictment doesn't necessarily mean innocent or guilty, only that a trial will be held.
