Lamb of God’s frontman Randy Blythe is still being held in a jail in Prague, Czech Republic on a count of manslaughter, even after he posted the bail of $200 000! Apparently and unfortunately, bails are subject to appeal in that country, which was the case here.
Friends and fans of Randy have launched an online petition via the “We The People” forum on the White House’s website in order to get Washington’s attention. The goal is to get 25,000 signatures before August 4th 2012 (the count is currently around 20 000).
Here’s the text of the petition:
“This petition is so it can be brought to the attention of the white house that one of our citizens is in need of help. His name is D. Randall Blythe. He was doing what he loves to do bring his music along with the rest of the band LAMB OF GOD. During one of the dates he was taken into custody in Prague and was extorted for money after posting bail he was not released which is a direct violation of his civil rights. This petition will show that the people of the united states will not stand for this outrage and hope you and the us state department will do something about this travesty.”
For those who are able to sign this petition, go here.
