Re: “Who are the West Memphis Three?

My thoughts: The investigation was corrupt from the start. Damien was honest when questioned by authorities in regards to his lifestyle. His views and interests served as a convienent focal point for a grieving and fearful community. Damiens rights in regards to freedom of religious beliefs and freedom of speech were not so free after all. The "confession" received by Misskelley was also a convenient tool for the angry. An abusive tool as far as I'm concerned. They took a young mentally challenged man / boy and manipulated him. The way this interrogation was handled is, in my opionon, the very reason the real murderer was never found. Human fear hurts... People wanted a bandaid. And so... Three disliked juveniles paid the price for being "different". I tend to believe they're innocent. I wasn't there and won't pretend to know for certain, one way or the other. What I do know is... The probation officer was very quick to judge the three boys. He fueled the community with talk of hate and fear. When I watch or read his interviews &/or comments I find myself thinking... Why on earth was this man NOT considered as a possible suspect? Or at the very least, questioned further. The investigation of this case was based etirely on stereotypes and hype. Yet, the probation officer's display of sociopathic tendancies don't seem to be seen or noticed by anyone. Clearly, the handling of this case resulted in nothing more than opinion. Those Three 8 year old boys deserved to have their murders properly investigated. Instead, they have nothing. To those of you who are so quick to judge these 3 .... What is it you're hiding? The naive confindence is transparent and, much like the three accused of this crime, your views and beliefs may someday be used against you by others.
