Marty Tankleff, Jeffrey Deskovic finally exonerated after years of imprisonment, had confessed to a crime they did NOT commit.

It is imperative to get educated and involved in juvenile law reform. Learn and know the miranda rights. Justice must be tempered with compassion and mercy. Far too many shattered lives, broken hearts and years in prison, when "innocent", a travesty of injustice upon these children. The physical and emotional trauma experienced will last a life time. Society cannot begin to understand or comprehend the devastation and struggles children are forced to bear, even after they were released. For the West Memphis 3, justice has been/is long overdue.
