Earth Crisis Comments On Walter Edmund Bond's Arrest On Charges Of Burning Down A Building

Vegan, straight-edge band Earth Crsis wrote the song "To Ashes" about Walter Edmund Bond, who has now been arrested and charged with burning down a sheepskin factory. Guitarist Scott Crouse further has commented on the situation:

"Recently Walter, the man whose actions inspired our song ‘To Ashes,’ has been arrested on alleged arson charges. Our motivation behind writing the song ‘To Ashes’ was to show the passion and frustration of a man who reached his boiling point. The extremes that Walter went to save his brother’s life we find inspiring, mainly because they were acts of property destruction against his adversaries, not acts of violence. We wanted to simply document what many in the straight edge community already deemed as a heroic and selfless action. Regarding Walters current arrest, we don't have much to say since right now they are merely accusations until he is proven guilty.

"We were also beyond disappointed that we didn't get a chance to play last Sunday at The Sound and Fury Festival. It was a weekend of canceled flights, wondering if all the members would even make it out here and three trips to LAX. Hey, at least we can all say we saw a motorcycle in the pit right?

"So far we have about four new songs written and are hoping to start working on vocals this fall. The plan is to have 10 new songs and re-record a few older songs that are live set staples. We are hoping to start recording in January 2011 with an as of yet undetermined producer."

Here's a link to what this dude looks like LMAO. LOOSERRRRRR!!!!

As for Earth Crisis, never listened to them and now, never will. By mentioning this guy's brother, were they talking about an acutal sibling or are the sheep his brother? I couldn't find anything on google about his "brother". If these losers are talking about the sheep. OMG...pass the beef you leftist hippy dirt bags.
As if Rage Against the law in AZ weren't bad enough, now we have psycho vegetable eaters going bezerk. What the hell is the matter with the world today? What happened to the good old wholesome days when bands screamed about killing God and worshipping Satan? Now all these doped up weirdo's have to have an agenda.
Varg......calling Varg......
Calling Ted Nugent.........
Destroy the vegetable hippys.
Veges are gross anyway.
Unite, eat meat.

OOPS, looks like no one cares enough to post on this so I don't know why I'm bothering, but it appears the guy burnt down a meth lab that was selling to his brother.
My bad, that I'll support.
But burning down a sheepskin factory?
