Injustice is served for West Memphis Three

This is today’s most heart-wrenching news.

A circuit judge has denied requests by the attorneys for Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie MIsskelley for a new trial.

These three men — who have been in prison for more than a decade for crimes they did not commit — were jailed for the murder of three boys and were convicted on nothing more than fear and scare tactics.

They didn’t use DNA evidence. They used crap “experts.”

This just – really pisses me off to no end, and I really don’t know how to react to this. But what a sad freaking week.

    I remember watching the documentary when it first aired on HBO..and even then I was like WTF…they seriously convicted those boys with THAT evidence?

    I know! It’s just crazy. I just don’t know what to say.

    Jason’s rule 37 hearings are Sept 24 through 26 and Jessie’s are
    Sept 29 through Oct 1 in Jonesboro. Damien would never have gotten a fair trial in East Arkansas anyway. It is best that he gets to move on faster on appeal to federal court in Little Rock.

    Saw the title of this and almost didn’t want to even read it.

    It makes my heart feel heavy.
