I have been watching this case for over a decade. Honestly I feel that these kids were railroaded. Particularly Damien Echols... Damien was "Goth" before Goth became the uniform for millions of American Teenagers. He read pagan books and had a dark demeanor as do a lot of rebellious teenagers. But because he was "different" they pinned this terrible murder of 3 Cub Scouts on Damien as the leader. After reading alot books, tv shows, and stories online, I feel like I know these kids. The 3 had a lot of celebrity support including Johnny Depp. I am glad they are free.

WM3 left prison with all belongings; source says they are not expected back
by Mara Leveritt on August 18, 2011
Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, Jr. have been taken from their cells in the Arkansas Department of Correction and are being transported to Jonesboro, for tomorrow’s hearing. An official of the ADC reported that they left with all their belongings, which is unusual and suggests that they are not expected back. This is the first time all three have left prison together.
