If you have not seen it, the three parts to a Paradise lost, you must. It is a documentary documenting 18 years with 4 separate films on the real case that took place in the state of Arkansas that begun on May 5 1993 . I watched all 4 films, the three parts of paradise lost and West of Memphis.
This documentary, the time invested, all the professionals from camera crew to attorneys who donated their time freely for the last 18 years to stand up for human rights, god bless all of you. They felt it was paramount to stand up for the three boys who were unjustly, corruptly sentenced to jail for a crime they may or may not have committed. From the arrest to the trial it was all botched,made up, nothing was researched, forensics, interviews, It had many holes, and stunk like swiss cheese. Why did Hollywood get involved ?
Thank you HBO, thank you, for reminding us that we have a horrible legal system and that most citizens do not get media worthy attention. Citizens in the U.S. can face horrible injustice, many real people do all the time . We need to be reminded that not everyone will walk away, people will stand and come together, and reason, logic, truth can or should prevail in the end. They want people across the world to invoke critical thinking, the media as well. as our justice system distorts legal rights.
How many times have you seen, heard about new DNA testing that exonerated wrongful guilty sentencing for many innocent people who have served many years in prison needlessly.
