The WM3 are three men who were railroaded by a corrupt and incompetent justice system in Arkansas in 1994 for the gruesome slayings of three eight-year-old boys. The men, then in their teens, were social misfits in their Bible-saturated town of West Memphis. Because the only physical evidence used to convict them were possessions such as black concert t-shirts, heavy-metal tapes, and song lyrics, many believe that satanic panic overcame reason in the town’s need to blame someone for the senseless crimes. June 3rd, 2006 marks the 13th anniversary of Damien Echols’ incarceration. The thirty-one year old awaits execution by lethal injection on Death Row. Each year on June 3rd, supporters who believe in the Three’s innocence make a special effort to raise funds and awareness about the unbelievable miscarriage of justice that ruined the lives of Echols, Jason Baldwin, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and their families.
