Bruce Sinofsky…hero

He died of complications of diabetes on Feb.21.

He and Joe Berlinger made a documentary film about the West Memphis Three.

These tennagers were railroaded by the justice (sic) system in West Memphis, Arkansas for killing some young boys in a ritualistic murder. The authorities were pressured by the public into ignoring any other suspects and the three teens spent 18 years in prison before The Paradise Lost Trilogy helped clear them.

It is not that simple but we should recognize when unpopular causes bear fruit for us all.
