Just got done watching West of Memphis
I watched it yesterday. I thought it was okay as a documentary. I preferred the Paradise Lost series more overall.
I really don't see one shred of evidence that said these kids did it. Reminds me of pitchfork and torch mob justice. And the state knew they are wrong, closed their eyes and marched on.
I specifically enjoy the prosecutor introducing the knife, calling it the murder weapon, when he in fact knew the knife was discarded into the lake - where it was found - ONE YEAR BEFORE the murders were committed.
The only reason anyone knows about this case is Paradise Lost. Otherwise, the state would have gotten away with it - they still pretty much did - and chalked it up as another successful closed case.
