And one that stuns. One of many questions to brood on here is that of what we should most fear. Is it the possibility of the from-nowhere violence that stole the lives of the three young boys in 1993? Or the possibility that everything that we should be able to trust in this society might be mobilized to take away innocent lives in retaliation — in this case, in a monolithic effort involving law enforcement, the courts, a grieving community and TV vultures like Geraldo Rivera, who had for years made a profitable racket out of warning Americans that satanists were after its babies? What is more terrifying: killers or accusers?

Hobbs didn't do it.  There is no legit evidence showing he did. And he had no motive to do it. This is just more finger pointing to distract attention away from those found guilty, the West Memphis Three. 

The movies only present one side of the case, that of the defense and the West Memphis Three.  The case against the West Memphis Three was a strong one.  They were found guilty by a unanimous jury the first time and plead guilty last year (Alford Plea) instead of waiting for a trial to exonerate themselves.

Misskelley (one of the 3) confessed FIVE times, three times to the detectives, once to his lawyers and once to the police.  Both Echols and Baldwin (one of the 3) told others they committed the crimes.  Echols had a long history of violence, threats of violence and psychotic behavior (see Exhibit 500).

Police took a necklace from Echols when he was arrested. An outside crime lab later found blood from two distinct DNA sources on the necklace. One source was consistent with Echols, the other with Baldwin and one of the victims. A car load of people saw Echols in muddy clothes near the crime scene.  Be sure to read alternative sources about the case like wm3truth . com and westmemphisthreefacts . com and not just the movies.
