Re: “Petition drive started to convince Beebe to pardon the WM3

Ok Brian, you claim that

-Jessie Misskelley confessed to the murders numerous times throughout 1993-1994.
-Witnesses placed Damien Echols near the crime scene covered in mud on the night of the murders.
-The WM3 have no alibis.
-The WM3 were convicted by two separate juries in 1994.
-The Arkansas Supreme Court repeatedly upheld those convictions for nearly 20 years.
-The WM3 pled GUILTY in 2011 through an convoluted deal called an Alford Plea.
-The case has already been “re-opened” back in 2011. Instead of presenting evidence of innocence at an evidentiary hearing, the WM3 ASKED to plead guilty with an Alford Plea in exchange for time served.
-The prosecutor has said he would welcome any evidence of innocence presented by the WM3 at any time, but so far no compelling evidence has been presented to him.
-The WM3 have done nothing to “find the real killer” except point fingers at the innocent step-parents of the victims.
-The WM3 and their supporters continue to profit from the murders through the sales of books, movies, art, and other schemes.



1.) If you are mentally handicapped, tired, exhausted etc you can be tricked into doubting you're own memory. Given that this has happened with people smarter than Jesse it's not surprising.

2.) Actually they did have alibis. Jesse has friends placing him at wrestling practice. The Saunder's neighbors, the rest of the family, and the daughter of the saunders family place him with his family for thirty minutes at their house starting between 5:30 and 6:00. The prosecutors only focused on a small part of the testimony and ignored all else when they attacked it.

3.) At least one of those cases fell under fire after the jury foreman was accused of misconduct (leaking Jesse's confession when it was inadmissible)

4.) Doesn't mean shit; the state would want to protect it's reputation.

5.) There are other reasons they would plead alford besides being guilty. In any case why would the state accept it if they were absolutely convinced?

6.) Could be lying

7.) A lot of evidence does implicate Terry Hobbs (not least the fact that he abused his family, had a history of violence and no real alibi.)

8.) Conjecture
