Jello Biafra of Alternative Tentacles Records, Dead Kennedys and most recently, The Guantanamo School of Medicine, has weighed in on the recent freeing of the West Memphis Three:
Wow, some good news for once! I'm very happy and more than a little moved. We need to give them support and space right now. Since they were wrongfully locked up as teenagers, this is basically the beginning of their free adult lives. What I still can't get over is how the prosecutors and police have let the real murderer of innocent young children run free all these years just so they would not have to admit they were wrong. The same goes for Mumia Abu-Jamal. Wouldn't they rather catch the real killer?
