High School Rapper Charged With “Terrorist Threats” for Facebook Post Has Been RELEASED

Photo of Cam home with his SisterI was just informed by Cameron D’Ambrosio’s people that the young man calling himself “Cammy-D” has been released from jail. If you have not been following this story, read our previous reports on it below:

This is huge! Just yesterday Cameron D’Ambrosio’s sister, excitedly explained that they were in the car on their way to the jail to bring Cam home.

Thanks to all your support and the massive public pressure, a Grand Jury issued a “no bill” on Cam’s case, refusing to indict him on the charge of Communicating a Terrorist Threat for the rap lyrics that he posted on his Facebook page. The grand jury’s refusal to indict immediately triggered another bail review during which Cameron was released to his own recognizance.

Moments later, I got a call from Rolling Stone magazine, who were already working on a story about Cam’s case. Here’s the article they just posted about Cam’s release. This morning, the Boston Globe reported that the District Attorney has said they won’t be pursuing the case any further. We won!

This is a major victory for free speech, for Cam’s family, and for each and every one of you who took the time to speak out about the injustice of Cam’s case. Today we showed that when we stick together in the face of attacks on civil liberties, we can win. We didn’t just get Cam released, we sent a strong message that will protect the First Amendment.

The grand jury’s decision to refuse an indictment underscores what we’ve been saying all along: the prosecution never showed probable cause for Cam’s arrest, and his extended jailing was unconstitutional and unjust. Cam still has to appear in court on June 27th, at which point we assume the charges against him will be officially dismissed. We will be there every step of the way to support Cam and his family and make sure that the government drops this case once and for all.

We still plan to deliver the signatures from our petition to the District Attorney to send a strong message that attacks on the First Amendment will not be tolerated. Can you help us get to 100,000 signatures before we make our delivery? Forward this email and use the sharing buttons to spread the word!

    All these kids nowadays that wanna try and act like a gangster, should be treated like one. You want to talk lightly and joke around about violence? Then you shall face the consequences. It’s his own dumbass fault
