I have watched many trials on Court T.V. (Tru T.V) and follow Nancy Grace, and watch "Investigative Discovery", and many crime programs. I am a bit of an armchair detective, and this story caught my eye; as I had graduated back in 1990, and was not aware of the case at that time. I have read the story and at first thought it was possible that the boys were likely guilty; however, in the back of my mind, I kept thinking about Christopher Buyers step dad. These men, should no way in hell be in that prison; let alone, Damien... who is in solitary confinement and awaiting a "LETHAL INJECTION"...not to mention the coerced confession of Jessie, who is mentally handicapped, unlawfully.... I'm just sick to my stomach how botched up this case was and that these men have to sit in prison for a crime they did not commit.
I have been following this case for years. I am outraged that someone is on death row for having black hair and dressing differently, That would have been me and most of my friends in the early 80's. The system works, but when it fails, it is almost impossible to get anything overturned. Shame on Politicians and the D.A. for allowing it to go on this long. They shouldn't have been convicted in the first place. But for anyone in Government to admit they made a mistake? Well. That just might make them look human. God forbid! If you can donate, buy merchandise, or even a song (Eddie Vedder with The Supersuckers called "Free the West Memphis 3". It rocks!!) you would help in the Defense of these three men.

I saw this story on 48 hours just the other day, I then rented Paradise Lost. I am sad for the families of the 3 young boys who where murdered, but I am also sad for the 3 young men that have been imprisoned for this crime that they so obviously did not commit. I have read every website I could find regardging this and watch many clips and am in absolute shock that these men have spent half their lives in prison. In my heart after reading and watching what I have so far I am 100% certain these men are NOT GUILTY of these crimes. GET THEM OUT OF JAIL!!! Then put the real killer(s) in prison and serve those three young boys the justice they have been denied!!
