WM3 supporters laud ruling

Posted By on Thu, Nov 4, 2010 at 3:18 PM

At a press conference held this afternoon, Lorri Davis, wife of Damien Echols, along with Capi Peck, Brent Peterson and John Hardin of Arkansas Take Action, held a press conference to laud the state Supreme Court’s decision to order new circuit court evidentiary hearings for Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, three men now known as the West Memphis Three.

Davis said she spoke with Echols earlier and told him, “This is the beginning.” She said Echols then replied, “No, honey, it’s the end.”

“This is huge for Arkansas,” Peck said. “We’ve finally done the right thing.” Hardin says the group will be meeting soon to talk about efforts to raise public awareness of the case as the new hearings approach.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
