The Trench Reynolds Report

Without truth there is no justice

Hey look, REM is in town.

Hey look, REM is in town.

I almost wasn’t going to post about this but it’s so comical I just had to comment.

Apparently an online petition has been started at change.org to pardon the West Memphis 3. The petition is directed at current Arkansas Governor Mike Bebee asking him to pardon the three calling their convictions a “travesty of justice” and “a sham”. By now you should know that I think the real travesty of justice is that these child killers are walking free.

Some of my fellow ‘nons’ have been up in arms about this but they really shouldn’t be worried at all. Firstly Gov. Bebee has said that “the appropriate place to seek exoneration of the men is the court system.” Secondly at the time the article from the Times Record was posted they only had 800 signatures. A week later they have about 1800. How many of those people do you think are even residents of Arkansas. If only a small minority of them are actually Arkansas voters than this isn’t even a blip on the Governor’s radar. The Last reason is that online petitions are a joke and no one takes them seriously. For all we know they could have been ‘signed’ all by the same person or bot. Considering the most successful online petition I can think of was the White House petition seeking the construction of the Death Star you can see how seriously they’re taken and that one had 25,000 signatures.

So good luck with that petition, you’re going to need it.

    Now WHY would they need a “pardon” if they are innocent. The Gov is right, they need to take their “proof” to the courts. I am so tired of the kool-aid drinkers that follow these 3 like what they say is the word of God. UGH!
