I’ve become personally involved with this case, trying to do anything I can to help. I believe that those kids are victims who need help instead of being locked in jail.
There are just so many things wrong with this case that demonstrate almost everything that can go wrong with our legal system. The biggest outrage is that these boys, who were 12 and 13, were allowed to waive their Miranda rights and gave their confessions without an attorney present.
Furthermore, they were tried as adults with a 6 person jury to save time & money instead of being heard by a full 12 person jury.
Evidence was tampered with and not fully investigated, and there were many conflicting details in their confessions and testimony.
