Those sentences will run concurrently. My point is... even if they didn't all plead guilty they were all charged on the 2 counts of kidnapping and one count of theft....I don't know how you are family but if you are immediate ( mom, dad, brother, sister) I sympathize for you, but that doesn't change the facts.
Something to think about here. I think we can agree that within the course of this thread you have learned that you were mistaken about more than a few facts of the case, can't we? Can we just concede that one fact? That's not a rub-in, just an observation. So, that being the case, it may be a good thing for everyone to consider that there may be other important facts that they aren't aware of. Facts that may (or may not) exonerate some of these individuals of murder.

Like Family stated, the West Memphis 3 case is very relevant here. If you were around then and listened to all the crazed, fear-driven news stories you would have believed without a shadow of a doubt that those 3 guys were guilty as sin and deserved to die a slow death. Heck, even after watching the first hour or so of the documentary "Paradise Lost" you're howling for their blood. But as the story unfolds you begin to see how wrong you were in thinking that.

The media is a powerful distortion tool.

And you seem to miss the point.

to Family....all 6 of these kids should have been raised differently. Their parents should have taken a care to raise them. You can't just have sex, produce a child and then expect he/she to know right from wrong. YOU have to TEACH them. Obviously you ALL failed as parents. All 6 of them POS's should and hopefully will rot in jail before ever seeing freedom.

I believe the six freaks should all be hung but I do agree they had a rough start in life. shitty parents. that's no excuse for what they did of course. they still deserve to die because other people have been through much worse and didn't end up killing innocent children.

bryant has a shitty family of druggies and whores that raised him up. they're still trash to this day. he killed a family and they went right on living like shit and didn't learn anything.

karen had a crazy mother that was totally bizzare and abusive in a religious way.

natasha's mother was trash that loved her men more than her kid and was caught up in her own drama to care and sturgill's family was so bad that they actually turned on her in favor of some stepdad that molested her.

... and nobody gave a fuck or stepped in.

I can see where they started to not care about a world that obviously didn't care about them or their terrible circumstances but they took it out on the wrong people. they should have did the right thing and killed their own shitty parents instead of those people with the van and their kids.

I know that Karen Howell just did a phone interview for it. Hopefully the director will be granted an in-person interview soon. Karen is the only one who hasn't done an on camera interview.

I heard the interview. It's fascinating. There is so much that the public doesn't know. I think people are going to be pretty shocked at how badly the prosecution and the media misrepresented the facts to the public.

A rough cut of the documentary is in the works and will be submitted for film festivals shortly. I'll keep you posted.

It goes to show how important active/good parenting and a meaningful home life can make a difference in a child's life. I have relatives, that but for the grace of God aren't in jail for being involved in something horrible. They didn't stand a chance, they practically raised them selves.......

Still a few things pending. The prison is making it difficult for her to get in and interview Karen. Not sure why since they let her interview all the others. I just saw the latest cut and it looks great. I suspect it shall be done by the Fall.

Nothing great about that gross act of man's inhumanity to man.

I agree. But there is something great in seeing an injustice set right (see: West Memphis 3, etc).

Are you trying to suggest that these young people from Pike County didn't commit those murders?

I suggest you actually read this thread.....LMAO

Roman, please accept my apologies on behalf of some of my fellow East Kentukians. This ignorance is just astounding, and you have handled it gracefully. Sorry you have to put up with it. Believe me, we aren't ALL like that. Heck, the majority isn't like that! Just a loud mouth few that make it seem as if it is.

I am proclaiming that ONE of them did. And that he was the only one who wanted anyone to die that day.

What are you suggesting exactly (in detail)?
