America Gone - 18 Yr Old Rapper
There but by the whim of the State goes YOU
|He's 18 and lives in a small town outside Boston. He wants
to be a rapper and calls himself "Cammy Dee" in his YouTube videos.
He has been locked up without bail for weeks -- facing terrorismcharges
and 20 years in prison -- all for lyrics he posted on Facebook calling the
Whitehouse a "federal house of horror." The Marathon Bombing was merely
mentioned. Shortly after that he was arrested and charged with Communicating
a Terrorist Threat, a felony that carries 20 years in prison.
The post contained no specific threat of violence against any person or group of people, and in the context of the rest of the lyrics and Cams' rap persona, it was clearly nothing more than a metaphor. A search of Cam's house found NO evidence that he was planning any violence, but a judge still ordered him held without bail for the next 3 months, pending trial.
A search of Cam's house found no explosives, weapons, or ANY evidence that he was planning anything other than becoming the next Eminem.
Take a minute to watch the video of one of Cam's songs http://youtu.be/-wbJTHkdBMc and decide for yourself whether you think he's a threat to public safety, or just a teenager speaking his mind.
Cam is locked up right now and he needs your help. Civil liberties groups haven't jumped in to help. The judge has shown severe bias already. Cam's best shot at justice is to make sure that Authorities in this small town know that the rest of the country is watching, and that we won't let them set a precedent of arresting teenagers for angsty lyrics.
