I try not give triple convicted child murderer Damien Echols any more attention than he deserves because it’s what he thrives on. To that end he must be trolling everyone by posting the following on his Twitter account…
Today was my original execution date, in 1994. If it would have been carried out, I would have been dead 21 years today.

So what’s wrong with that you may ask? Why shouldn’t a man celebrate the fact that he’s alive? It’s because today also happens to be the 22nd anniversary of the day that he and his cohorts, Jessie Misskelley Jr. and Jason Baldwin, brutally murdered 8-year-old Cub Scouts Michael Moore, Chris Byers and Steve Branch. I’m sure this date is not lost on him. This is nothing more than Echols flaunting that he got away with triple murder more or less.
Not surprisingly, the Rolling Stone article I got his tweet from gets some information wrong.
Amid new DNA evidence, legal teams for the three men were able to secure their release from prison after changing their pleas from not guilty to guilty.
The ‘DNA evidence’ is no such thing because it does not implicate anyone else for the crime as much as the chalupas would like to think it does. Then again what do you expect from a widely discredited outlet like Rolling Stone.
