Re: “WM3 supporters rally at State Capitol, call for case to be reopened.

I just reread my post and noticed an error. I was really hungover when i wrote it. I referred to Jesse's confession when you were clearly talking of the Alford guilty plea, not the original trial. That's not a proper guilty plea coz its a weird thing where you plead guilty in the interest of the state whilst still maintaining your innocence. They would only offer them it if all 3 agreed to do it. Jason didn't want to and wanted to stay in prison and prove his innocence, but he reluctantly entered into the Alford guilty plea for Damien whose health was deteriorating in death row and wanted to be out of prison to be with his wife.

Re: “WM3 supporters rally at State Capitol, call for case to be reopened.

WMTwo, I just trudged through your lengthy tirade and was surprised by how few points you actually had to make in your long-winded, uninsightful, repetitive rants. At least it shouldn't take me too long to make my counter-argument though.

"They were found guilty, IN A COURT OF LAW"
And the courts are infallible? No ones ever wrongfully imprisoned? If you believe that you're a Muppet. The trial was bodged, they were convicted on the flimsiest of "evidence", and the media had already decided they were guilty before it went to court and influenced the jury.

" They pled guilty, IN A COURT OF LAW"
No THEY didn't. Only one of them did and experts believe it to be a false confession, which is common with people of such low IQ, who will say what the interviewer wants them to say just to shut them up and end the unpleasant situation, without thinking of the long term consequences. The police interrogated him for twelve hours and we only recorded the final 40 minutes. In that recording the police ask leading questions and when he gets details wrong they prompt him to change those details. Even still, the final "confession" is Full of inaccuracies.

'...just because someone has an IQ of, 72, certainly does not mean that a person - "for that reason", "didn't" do it.'
Of course it doesn't. Nobody has claimed such a thing to my knowledge. An expert on false confessions did, however, say that people of such low IQ are known to sometimes make false confessions just to stop the incessant questioning. Also, an FBI criminal profiler said that these killings seemed to be done by an intelligent killer who knew how to clean up a crime scene without leaving evidence.

'Now, they are "trying" to say, it was the "other" father, who, must of done it.'
Whilst West of Memphis made a pretty convincing case for Terry Hobbs being the killer, and I do believe he is, I did at one time think Byers had done it, and it was perhaps irresponsible for the documentary to point the finger at someone else. They presented far more evidence against Terry Hobbs than there ever was against the WM3, but still not enough to conclusively prove his guilt in a fair trial (as opposed to the sham of a trial the WM3 were put through). I have to say, though, that I thought Terry Hobbs looked shifty when I first saw him at the start of the first Paradise Lost documentary, and had a gut feeling he'd done it, but I quickly forgot my suspicions as Byers stole the limelight and my focus and suspicion was drawn to him. Now I think my first intuition was right but II could be wrong. Whoever did it, I hope they get brought to justice soon and we all get to find out what really happened once and for all.
