Band Vows to Defy Assisted Suicide Law - Sep. 29, 2003

Mitch Stacy of The Associated Press reports that the leader of the rock group HELL ON EARTH said an onstage suicide will happen during a private St. Petersburg concert this weekend in defiance of a new city law designed to stop it.

"The show will go on," Billy Tourtelot said Monday. "It will be available on the Internet, and it will be in the city limits [of St. Petersburg]."

Earlier Monday, the St. Petersburg City Council unanimously approved an emergency ordinance that makes it illegal in the city to conduct a suicide for commercial or entertainment purposes, and to host, promote and sell tickets for such an event.

"While I still think it's a publicity stunt, we still couldn't sit idly by and let somebody lose their life," council member Bill Foster said.

Al Galbraith, an assistant city attorney, said the city will also seek a court injunction against the band to keep them from advertising and allowing the suicide to occur.

Tourtelot, 33, says the suicide show will be played before a "a select few people" at an undisclosed location in St. Petersburg and be shown live on the band's web site, www.hellonearth.net. He wouldn't disclose any details about the terminally ill person or say how the person planned to kill himself.

The point, he said, is to raise awareness that physician-assisted suicide should be legalized in Florida. If the terminally ill person could find a physician to assist, then the person wouldn't be forced to do it himself, Tourtelot said.

"If you can die for your country, why can't you die for yourself?" he said.

Tourtelot said he's not worried about the legal ramifications. Violating the city ordinance is punishable with up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine. A Florida law already makes it manslaughter, a second-degree felony, to assist in a suicide, but he insists the band is not assisting the act.

"This person will be doing this self-deliverance totally by themselves, on their own accord," he said.

That is really sick! how could someone be so stupid and kill himself at an concert?!?!
I don't think it's good to make publicity to that... maybe an idiot reads it and also thinks: "Cool!!! When I kill myself on stage everyone will love me!!" or something like that...
Stupid People :behead:

Def 2003-10-01 11:22

yeah, I heard about it, sick shit, they want to broadcast it on internet too.

go ahead and kill yourself, but not in fucking public.

powersofterror 2003-10-01 11:30

People sell out..but selling out your soul...STUPID!
Suicide should be discrete if anything.

sanderinos 2003-10-01 13:23

Have some decency... fuck your self up at home.....

BassBehemoth 2003-10-01 15:36

I heard about this, and I think it's really fucking stupid...someone should shoot this guy outta spite.

OpethRules 2003-10-01 17:16

That's absolutely crazy! Who would even consider doing something like that in public. I can't believe what people are doing these days, it's just mind boggling!

CarnivorousWind 2003-10-01 17:34

I agree with you all. I think the band is stupid to even let the guy do it. I mean slaughtering a goat on stage i can handle but my God who wants to see a human commit suicde with a band? lol If you wanna see that go download or buy faces of Death

CannibalXampire 2003-10-02 09:57

Heh, I just came from Spanish and my teacher wouldn't say what was happening but that it made him sick. No one's going to kill themselves, Hell On Earth is a pussy band who wish they had shock value but just come out being stupid. In Metal Maniacs they have a picture of them all taking drugs and drinking. Ooooh so shocking. I haven't listened to them yet, but I have a feeling they'll suck.

Tattered 2003-10-02 14:27

yeh its stupid, its just like yeh, the concert will be ruined cos the atmosphere of someone dying there, isnt pleasant

I wonder if it's dawned on any of the band members that since it is i llegal , that they would all be accesssories to it. Hmm, maybe they're really trying to get jailed to make Bubba some new 'girl friends'. And I would be willing to bet their careers at much of anything would be down the tubes. Unless it was some perverted thing.

I'm not saying assisted suicides are wrong totally, but sometimes the reasoning is very wrong. My great aunt and uncle were very much debilitated and took their lives by asphixiation. But my cousin couldn't quite figure out how they got to the garage, started the car and did what they did in as bad of shape as they were. But they were together for 50 or 60 years and they died together.

powersofterror 2003-10-03 18:48

...A couple getting high together..for the last time. How sweet and sad.:( :rolleyes:
50 or 60 years!!! All kneel to the exalted ones.
