Jason over at The Gauntlet missed his true calling. He should have gotten a job with the FBI analyzing crime videos.
Since this Randy Blythe arrest story broke, Jason has gone over and over video shot at the club when Lamb of God performed in 2010, and where it is alleged a fan sustained a serious head injury when tossed off the stage, which he allegedly died from two weeks later.
One video he’s been keen on is one depicting a security guard throwing that fan — identified as Daniel Nosek — into the crowd and onto the floor.
After Daniel gets up, Jason noticed the security guard shouted something at him. Following the security guards words, Daniel head-bangs for a few seconds, then wanders to the back of the club.
The Gauntlet isolated the security guard’s voice in the audio and dropped the background noise levels (the band playing). That cleaned-up footage was passed along to people who can speak the language, and it appears the guard said “do not go up there, calm down.”
This directly conflicts reports that the venue — the Abaton in Prague — is a stage dive-friendly venue.
But obviously, the security guard was annoyed by this kid. He tells Daniel that he needs to stay off the stage and not to go back up there. The security guards job is there to protect the band, the venue, and the fans. That is what he was trying to do in warning Daniel he was getting a bit out of control and to stay off the stage.
This kid was repeatedly warned to stay off the stage. He didn’t. If someone warned me not to piss on an electric fence, but I did anyway and burned my pecker off, would it not be my own fault for not heeding that warning?
The fact that Randy remains in jail is making me furious at this point. Is there no accountability anymore? The kid was being dumb, and he ultimately paid for it.
Blythe needs to be freed already. Enough is enough.
