Last night Larry King spoke with Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks about the wrongful convictions of the West Memphis Three. Damien Echols, one of the three, is on death row in Arkansas. Watch a clip of the show.
It is so great to see some attention being paid to this case, especially just days before the Arkansas Supreme Court is set to hold a hearing on Echols' case.
Last month, supporters sent Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe 4462 printed postcards and 4515
email-cards pleading for him to support a new trial
for Damien Echols.
I'll be posting updates about Damien's case as new developments occur.
