The West Memphis Three

Been following and reading up on this case for a few years now, ever since seeing the Paradise Lost documentaries. Doesn't take a smart mind to know they were innocent all along. And I couldn't be more overjoyed that these men are finally out, having been in jail for the past 18 years. It's mindblowing just thinking about it. But I admire their true courage and discipline in staying strong and fighting for their freedoms. I wish Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley well and may they find peace and comfort for the rest of their lives. Bear in mind though, this case is not over yet, and let's hope they can all be fully exonerated eventually.
