Yesterday (February 4), the State Attorney’s Office in Prague, Czech Republic, began the trial of Lamb Of God's David Randall Blythe. Blythe is being accused of manslaughter following the death of Daniel Nosek, a 19 years old fan of the band. Full details HERE!
Following the respond from the public regarding his trial, Randy decided to take matters into his own hands via his Instagram and post the following images and words in order to discuss the incorrectness of the information shared this far regarding his trial.
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."
you ever looked down on the ancient rooftops of Prague from the clock
tower in Old Town Square? Have you ever seen the snow falling on the
people below? It is a magical sight, for Prague is a magic place. While I
am not happy to be here for the reason I am, I am not a blind man, nor
am I a fool. Only a blind fool would not bother to see these things. It
is quiet high above the city, and it is beautiful in a different way
than the many other places I have been around the world. Prague has a
long, complicated history. In many ways, I feel what is happening in my
life right now could not happen anywhere else. I roam through the
streets, asking myself questions, and there are quiet echoes of the city
answering back. I have been here over two weeks now, preparing for this
trial. I have walked many miles at night here. I am looking for life
lessons in the snow."
