"...serious situation I want to talk about. In all the things that Iíve done, obviously any of us, especially me could have been Damian Echols, but heís on death row in Arkansas for a crime he did not commit. Mostly because he dressed like we do, listened to music like we do, and acted like we do. And I think heís felt what we all feel now, what weíve always felt and kind of stayed out of, you know Iíve always been a big supporter of the cause. But I chose a long time ago not to be involved because I thought I would add to the problem, but now I think itís an important time to stand up and be part of the problem for me.
This is a person who was singled out in a small town in Arkansas with his friends Jason Baldwin, Jessie Misskelly and subjected to the basic Salem Witch Trial that everyone talks about. Their prosecution resulted in him being sentenced to death without any sort of evidence just basically prosecuted on the way he looks, the way we look, the way that we all feel. So for sixteen years, these guys who were teenagers at the time of their trial, things that we canít imagine that theyíve gone through for one minute. You know they stopped being a regular life and started being criminals when they werenít.
Itís kind of come down to this, itís basic, people have always prosecuted everyone like us, me, Iím not going to try to compare myself to Damian Echols. Although I wish that I had the strength that this guy had, because heís gone to trial and gone to prison for just looking and thinking the things he did, and thatís pretty much what all of us as a music community believe in and what we need to finally get behind. So Iím standing up today to say lets all get behind the West Memphis 3 and fix it. And thatís all Iíve go to say, lets fix this shit."
