Murder, Suicide, Music And Drugs

Escape The Fate's singer involved in murder and drugs (reason why he left the band).

1
Punishment issued in a sad case involving a popular local band member Ceda Freeman has been waiting for this day for two years. As the mother of Michael Cook, the one and only fatality in a brawl gone bad in a desert lot near Shadow Ridge High School in May of 2006, Freeman has searched long and hard for justice. At least he admitted that he set it up, Freeman says. But still, nobody has been charged with [murder]. She's talking about former Escape the Fate lead singer Ronnie Radke, the only person to be sentenced for involvement in the brawl that left Cook dead and one other young man injured. Radke, 24, pleaded guilty January 18 to one charge of battery with substantial bodily harm. He was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to pay $92,372 in restitution to Freeman.

    but ronnie didn't go back. i think its rediculous that no one else got charged and now everyone sees americas justice system and the greed within humans she charged the one guy she knew had money. just so she can benifit from her sons death. i think everyone should've been charged ronnie was guilty. but so was everyone else even the kid who died. that kid did not have to show up nor pull out a gun. its his fault.

    Freeman seems like she's blaming Ronnie for killing her son, but he didn't do it. And Ronnie shouldn't pay what he didn't do. [/u]

    I agree that what they play is pretty poppy. But it's no simple plan. Also, there's no rule which states what guitar you have to play in each genre. Everyone is entitled to like who they want. I am playing in a radio rock band at the moment, but one of my biggest infuences is pantera.

    Yea that band had potential to actually make some good music. Never even heard about this, but it explains why i haven't heard anything from them in a while...

    Shouldn't the others be charged? I mean, both sides had guns, and Radke didn't shoot anyone.
