West Memphis 3 may be freed today!

In 1993, 3 kids were convicted of murder because they listened to Metallica. Sincerely. The prosecution presented one of their Metallica posters as evidence. 18 years in prison.. Sadly it looks like they’ll have to enter an Alford plea to get released which means that the DA won’t make any attempts to find the actual murderer and they’ll be unable to sue for wrongful imprisonment. That said, a lot of amazing people have worked for years to get their case to this point and any chance for them to walk free is a victory. CNN
