Free Austin Jones

This petition had 56 supporters

Austin Jones is an alternative pop vocalist, showing off his talent on YouTube and formerly posting six second videos on Vine. He also was arrested at the Chicago O'Hare Airport after returning from his tour, due to child pornography.

Flashback two years ago, Austin Jones released an apology video about asking his young fans for explicit twerking videos. Two years later, he was caught asking his fans for the same thing. Again.

Now that we all know Austin has done the same mistake twice, we are sure he needs mental help, rather than jail. Jail time would make him worse than he already is. We could give him the help he needs.

If you had fully watched his apology video back in 2015, he mentioned his suicidal thoughts, the multiple deaths he experienced as a young child, his father experimenting with alcoholism and drugs, which resulted in Austin self-harming. He said he was hospitalized and put into rehab because of this. He also claimed he asked fans for explicit videos because he wanted attention.

It's very possible he could be feeling the same way again: depressed, and wanting even more than before, especially if he's doing the same thing he apologized for two years ago. He needs mental help, not a prison.
