    I'm pretty sure I'm right. It's been a long time since I've seen the 2nd documentary, but I'm pretty sure they mentioned the AIDs thing. By all means, check it out. Like I said, it's been quite a while.

    I read their wiki pages and it didn't say any of them were infected in prison... not saying it didn't happen, but there is no info on wiki about it. I would hope that isn't the case though.

    Damien was the one they put on death row. I think they targeted him because he was Wiccan and looked kind of strange, which is really ****ed up.

    I guess I'll just have to watch the second documentary. I never watched any of them but I am familiar with this case, because my best friend used to watch the documentaries and she kept me informed. Since they out of prison and a third documentary is in the makes, I'll make time to watch the previous ones.

    Mark Gardner (who was since been executed for the murder of 3 people including raping one of them), confessed to repeatedly raping and beating Damien Echols over an extended period of time.

    i have watched all the documentaries in the past and there wasn't any mention of Damien contracting aids and can't find a reliable source so not sure on that.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    The death row/sentencing system is broken. As we speak hundreds have been freed thanks to new evidence. What's sad is that there are probably dozens/hundreds more who've been executed with little chance to clear their names.
    It doesn't seem right to say the current system is broken because the current system is freeing hundreds of innocent people.

    I think you mean the old system was broken, and the new system is able to free them given DNA.

    You start by setting up, the system. Everyone should have, the same legal defense that OJ Simpson had access to. Despite everyone's wish to the contrary, "justice" is expensive in this country.

    The reason most of these people are being wrongly convicted in the first place is that they don't have the resources to properly defend themselves legally.

    This is true and therefor their quilt or not is never proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Our laws and those who practice it have made it what it is today, a fine chess game for gentleman at the expense of the accused.

    Is he the guy that fell down and lost all his teeth, after experts said the boy's bodies had bite marks?
