The West Memphis Three

I just read on, that hearings scheduled for early September may be postponed. This is so frustrating. Fifteen years has been plenty long enough. I have a child that is about the age of the children murdered in this case, so I understand people having strong feelings on both sides. I don't hop on many "innocence" bandwagons. For example, Jeffrey MacDonald is guilty as hell. I don't care how many floppy hatted hippies were running around Fayetville on February 17, 1970. In this case though, I don't believe these boys, now men, murdered anyone. Even if I did believe in their guilt, the evidence at the Echols/Baldwin trial would be hilarious material for a mockumentary were it not all to real (for months after I saw PL, I actually thought it was a mockumentary about the justice system).

If you don't know about the case, you should do some searches and get a sense of the case. Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills is a great documentary to start with. There are a couple of books devoted to the case from different perspectives.
