The west Memphis three

quote:
Shortly after three eight-year-old boys were found mutilated and murdered in West Memphis, Arkansas, local newspapers stated the killers had been caught. The police assured the public that the three teenagers in custody were definitely responsible for these horrible crimes. Evidence?

The same police officers coerced an error-filled "confession" from Jessie Misskelley Jr., who is mentally handicapped. They subjected him to hours of questioning without counsel or parental consent, audio-taping only two fragments totaling 46 minutes. Jessie recanted it that evening, but it was too late— Misskelley, Jason Baldwin and Damien Echols were all arrested on June 3, 1993, and convicted of murder in early 1994.

Although there was no physical evidence, murder weapon, motive, or connection to the victims, the prosecution pathetically resorted to presenting black hair and clothing, heavy metal t-shirts, and Stephen King novels as proof that the boys were sacrificed in a satanic cult ritual. Unfathomably, Echols was sentenced to death, Baldwin received life without parole, and Misskelley got life plus 40.

In the years since the convictions of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley for a crime they did not commit, their cause has gained support from all over the world, and these men have become known as the West Memphis Three. The story of the injustice they have endured at the hands of the state of Arkansas has never lost momentum, and in recent months, the evidence in their favor has grown to the point where it's nearly impossible to view this case as anything other than a miscarriage of justice.

I don't have any way of knowing if these kids were actually innocent. I lean towards yes. But for anyone who has seen the movie made about it "Pradise Lost" their trial was fucking horrible. They actually used Metallica music and black T shirts as evidence that they were "satanist ". They should have a new trial at the least.

Quick snap judgement? I agree with you. Sounds like part of the "Satanic Witchunt" crap I recall being pushed around back then.

You guys should pick up the movie. The trial if you could call it that was a joke or would be if it weren't for the lives of three kids being ruined by it.

It was actually allowed into evidence in open court that Damein Echols liked wearing black T shirts ,listened to metal and read about Alister Crowley. It was during the tail end of the Satanic ritual abuse scam that the FBI later investigated and debunked.

I've seen enough on the local Memphis news about that case over the years that I don't really want watch an movie on it. I agree that they probably did get shafted but like I said, it's West Memphis so it's not that much of a surprise.

Hell the judge could have not allowed the nonsense in court. He's to blame too.

If they convict about another 860,348 innocent white folks, things should just about even out there.

I doubt that. This happened in the early 90's. It's funny to argue with yourselves. If someone doesn't say what you want them to say you come in and set up a strawman to chant slogans at. No one said anything about Obama.

And if anyone can find posts from me blaming Obama for whatever I would like to see them.

Obama framed the West Memphis Three because they were getting too close to finding his REAL birth certificate.
