This story was featured in two documentaries and is hard to read because of the utter stupidity of cops, Evangelical Christians and the American public at large. Three kids are railroaded into confessing to brutal murders that they probably did not commit in Arkansas back in the '90s. The record of police incompetence and malfeasance is enough to cause one to run out into the street and start knocking down mailboxes.
