Are the West Memphis 3 guilty or innocent?

I still believe they're guilty.
I used to think they were guilty, but now I'm not so sure.
I have no idea/I don't care.
They are innocent. Free the 3!

In the past year, there has been been a lot evidence uncovered helping to clear them of their convictions.
After watching the video, let me know what you think.

    First time I heard about this. It's probably a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. That's my guess anyway. If I'm wrong, oh well. They seem to be very sincere about the events and whats going on now. I think they're innocent and somebody else was there to commit the crime.

    I lived in Memphis at the time & remember this very well,but if these guys are not guilty then all involved need to find the killer, who may be right under there nose. It appears that a lot went wrong in this case, plus a lot of people got consideration that they didn't deserve.

    Cops put their focus on a certain person and listen to no-one else as long as they have some one in Jail they do not care...I know first had that police do this first hand. These kids never should have been allowed to speak tp cops without parents. they were scared boys their selves. thinking that he would be let go. I do not believe they are guilty..

    I watched the 48 Hours with this case; and I can feel that they truly are innocent. They have no supporting evidence to say that they were guilty. Damien was arrested "because he looked like he could be in a cult". I think it's pathetic how cops are just like "Your guilty. We know it. You're going to jail." without even really investigating. Its truly sad and I hope that for the sake of the children's families and these men that the truth is revealed and justice is served.

    Whenever Hollywood gets involved, you know they're guilty. The vid is from a bunch of defense lawyers, what do ya expect. These MF should have hanged. Our tax dollars should not have been used to keep them scummy buts alive

    "Narrowmindedness" Isn't that why this story is a story?

    If you were to use hypothetical reasoning, would you continue to be close minded to new facts and biased towards those footing the bill so that these facts see the day of light?

    Usually in a case like this one of them would squeal on the other two til get a lighter sentance. but no1 has squealed on anyone in 16 years, maybe they are innocent. In the UK they probably would have been released by now. In America once you go to jail you usually stay there. i think they desearve a hearing and/or a retrial.

    Didn't like your choices.
    Didn't watch the video, no sound...but, I did research the case a bit.
    Sounds like the cops were worse than the keystone kops. They seriously mishandled the evidence, the crime scene in general, the bodies, the interviews, the polygraphs, and pretty much anything else you can screw up.
    The cops say Echols failed the polygraph...but oh, neither the examiner nor the tester kept a record of it. The Cops say he confessed...but, oh yeah, They forgot they were supposed to be taping it.
    The cops questioned Misskelly for over 12 hrs, but only have the 45 minutes of him confessing details about the crime recorded. Oh, one more thing, the details he gave are inconsistent with the evidence...and he's border line mentally retarded.
    The cops refused an unsolicited offer of help from the Arkansas State Police Violent Crimes section...critics suggested this was due to the WMPD being investigated by the Arkansas State Police for suspected theft from the Crittenden County drug task force.
    The cops couldn't be much more unprofessional. They used paper sacks from the local grocery store for crime scene containers.
    I don't know who is guilty...but there is no way they should've ever been convicted.

    I could see that an appeal would free them on many legal grounds....
    the religious rite is mostly to blame and the politics sorrounding it.... whats worse is that the real killers are free...

    If people can help clear the names of innocent people then they should be doing what they can to help...

    otherwise, three people are in jail for a crime, and the system feels that this is good enough...

    personally, i have no interest in the case, nor the video, i'm only answering because it was in my shared folder, and there's a not care option........

    How did they arrest them in the first place if there was no physical evidence? I think it was Satanic Panic.

    I do care but I do not know the whole story so I have no idea. Seems like this video is one sided though. Perhaps there is other things that the prosecution has that points to their guilt. After all why were they even questioned to begin with.

    I read about this in Revolver. The only think the perscution had to go on was one of them had long black hair, wore black t shirts and listened to Metallica....oh yeah that's logical evidence right there. Plus there's no evidence to say that they did it.

    Ever since the begining these 3 guys were free....
    before any of this evidence came to be seen by the world....

    come to think of all the things that the presecutor was using against the three was incoherent, i knew that they only based their reasoning just b/c all of these 3 were different from everyone else.

    FREE THE MEMPHIS THREE!!!!!!

    WE ALL CAN SEE THAT JUSTICE IS BLIND..

    AND FOR HOW LONG?????

    HOW LONG WILL THIS BE GOING ON????

    CORRUPTION WITHIN THE SYTEM WILL ALWAYS WEIGHT MORE THAN THE TRUTH OF THE VICTIMS.........

    HERE IN THIS SUPPOSE GREAT COUNTRY OF DEMOCRACY, WHERE IS THIS JUSTICE THAT ONE TALKS ABOUT WHEN INCRIMINATED THESE 3 PERSONS?????

    WHEN WILL IT ALL END???

    Since when is being Goth or listening to gothic/rock music a crime? So because three boys dress a certain way or act a certain way, they should be doomed? That is some straight up bullshit! There is not a single shed of evidence that links these boys to this crime. Why they are still in prison is unexplainable to me. What kind of hillbilly jury convicted these children?!?! They have lost almost half of their lives on something that they had nothing to do with. What kind of blind justice is that?

    I only hope that when, not if, WHEN Damien Echols is freed, I hope he sues to the everloving dog shit out of the justice system in West Memphis, Arkansas!! That man should never have to work another day in his life as far as I am concerned. FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS 3!!!!!!

    this case is a perfect in the light example of our justice and political system fucking up and then instead of making things right, they go and try to cover it up. they would rather ruin peoples lives than admit they are wrong.
