Randy Blythe Comments On Manslaughter Trial In The Czech Republic

As was reported yesterday, Randy Blythe from Lamb of God's manslaughter trial in the Czech Republic has now begun.

The charges of manslaughter come from a 2010 incident when a fan was allegedly pushed off the stage and subsequently died several weeks later.

Randy Blythe has also now checked in with the following comments on the trial and online reports:

I have read a few news reports of the progress of my case, and trust me - many things are incorrect. But this is the Internet, and of course things are half-baked anyway. Keep in mind that translation is difficult, and many things can be lost, for Czech is a VERY DIFFICULT language. So wait and see, as I am. It is all I can do, except be honest & fight for my freedom in my own way.

I also have heard of some people (not on here) talking smack about the Czech Republic, saying "Fuck the Czech Republic", etc. This not how it should be. This is a very sad case, not something to rage at people you do not know over. I am not angry with the Czechs at all. A fan of my band is dead - what do I have to be angry about? I am an INNOCENT man, but I am also a very sad man right now. To not be sad in this instance would be inhuman. But mad at the Czech people? Why would I be mad at them?

Here, look at this picture - a mother watches her baby. The child reaches out for something new, laughing and chasing a pretty picture in the air. It is the same here as everywhere else. Do you see?!?!? Life is beautiful. I hope to see y'all soon.

Several websites are also now reporting that the trial has been postponed and will resume next month, although nothing official has come from the band or its representatives at this point. A (Czech language) news video has also been posted online about the trial beginning, which is available below.

Agreed cbella. It must be incredibly frustrating to prepare for this trial and be postponed. Good to see Randy is keeping his attitude in check and focusing on what's important.
