Re: “UPDATE II: Echols blasts Baldwin in new book

Wow...how sad. I have followed this case since the release of the first documentary, and I've supported these three men throughout the entirety of their wrongful convictions/incarcerations. I would never dare to go so far as to pass judgment on Damien's statements or his behavior regarding Jason, because I can't begin to imagine what he went through all of those years, but I will admit to being very disappointed that it came to this.

I had a bad feeling a long time ago about all of the attention that was focused - seemingly - solely on Damien, although I somewhat understood it. He was, after all, the only one of the three who stood to lose his very life. I think the involvement of "Hollywood types" worked in the WM3's favor, absolutely, but I also think that book deals, movie deals, etc. - all of that sudden fame and attention, combined with sudden freedom and re-entry into a world you've been completely separated from for nearly two decades - can mess with someone's head, especially if they're on somewhat unsteady ground, to begin with. I just had a bad feeling something like this was going to happen when the books and films started being released.
