Hi, Bryan Here….
Here is the trailer for the Peter Jackson produced documentary about the story of the West Memphis 3. The film centers on the private investigators and forensic testing financed by Jackson and Walsh. It has been one year since the three guys have been freed, however supporters are still trying to get an outright exoneration from the state of Arkansas, because Arkansas made the three guys take the Alford plea. The Alford plea made the three guys plead guilty while denying they committed the crime. This was so that Arkansas wouldn’t have to shell out money in lawsuits for 20 years of wrongful imprisonment.
I’m glad this is finally getting a wide release as this case is very near and dear to me. I first heard about this case much like most of you with the first HBO documentary ‘Paradise Lost’. I became heavily interested in the case and recently the three boys were finally released after serving 18 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit. Tons of celebrities got involved with this case including Peter Jackson, Johnny Depp, and Natalie Maines. Here is the trailer for your enjoyment.
