First off, I have to point out this article from KATV in Little Rock is labeled as ‘Special Advertiser Content’. That explains why it reads more like a press release than an actual news article.
In the wake of Damien Echols’ melodramatic return to Arkansas to protest the state’s death penalty, the one where Johnny Deep said he would catch Damien’s heart, Echols is back in the Arkansas ‘news’ spewing his usual story about how poorly he was treated on death row. He’s claimed in the past he needs to wear his special dark glasses everywhere he goes because being in prison hurt his eyes. Now he’s claiming he suffered an unspecified head injury while in prison.
“Ten years was spent in solitary torture. The brain injury I sustained will always plague me.”
Of course there was no elaboration on his supposed injury. Since he was in solitary, is he saying he gave the injury to himself? I’m sure the Chalupas will be more than happy to explain it to me how the child murderer was victimized by the guards or something.
The ‘article’ then goes on to parrot the official WM3 party line of how the supposed DNA evidence implicates Terry Hobbs, which it doesn’t.
It must be nice to be triple-convicted child killer and have the media at your beck and call.
