There was recently an article in the Village Voice about Mr. Douche Goggles himself, triple convicted child murderer Damien Echols. I was going to let this one go by since it was talking about his and his crazy wife’s new book. That was until I read the first line of the article.
Damien Echols doesn’t want to talk about the West Memphis 3 anymore.
You’re kidding me right? He doesn’t want to talk about the think that’s kept him marginally in the public eye for the past 20 years and has gotten him his celebrity buddies? Of course this is nothing more than classic Echols attention whoring except now it’s reverse attention whoring. The ‘don’t look at me/look at me’ kind of attention whoring. An attention whoring reach around if you will.
Echols really wants to talk about his tarot card classes which is just more of him fleecing his gullible Echolytes. However I do want to take issue with the closing paragraph of the article.
“The things they tried to murder me for — my love of witchcraft, the tarot, my spirituality, these are the things I never changed about myself during all the years in prison,” he says. “The guards couldn’t beat it out of me. People thought I was crazy. But what can I say?”
Wrong again Mikey. They tried to execute you because you brutally murdered three children.
The only thing about cards that Echols truly understands is playing the victim card.
