The West Memphis Three
- Hello, friends
Most of you are aware of the case of the three young men in Arkansas known as the West Memphis Three. They are young men today, but were children when they were railroaded into prison for the murder of three little boys.
Their trial was a witch hunt predicated on the fact that they didn't "fit in" with their Arkansas community.
Damien Echols is sentenced to death;
Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, Jr. are serving life in AR where there is no possibility of parole on any life sentences.
All are innocent.
The TRUE STORY of this atrocity is documented in a newly-released book which was written by Arkansas' most outstanding investigative journalist, Mara Leveritt.
The name of the book is "The Devil's Knot - the True Story of the West Memphis Three"
This is one of the best books I've ever read. Whether you're a staunch supporter of the WM3, or are just hearing of them for the first time, you NEED to read this book. It's so excellent I couldn't stand to put it down.
Please obtain a copy of this book, and add your voice to those demanding a re-trial and exoneration of these innocent young men. If you can't afford to buy it, please ask your library to order it. It's a MUST-READ for everyone who truly cares about JUSTICE IN AMERICA!
Peace and blessings,
LINDA TANT MILLER
