Ark. AG says WM3 DNA campaign is misleading

Ark. AG slams ‘misleading’ campaign on DNA evidence in 1993 West Memphis slayings:

Arkansas’ Attorney General, Dustin McDaniel, says that the campaign that the West Memphis 3 cultists are waging about the new DNA evidence is misleading at best.

“I’m growing increasingly frustrated by what I see as a misleading press campaign to suggest that there’s new DNA evidence that in some way exonerates these boys that a jury found guilty and whose appeals they all lost. There is no new DNA evidence that exonerates these boys at all,” McDaniel told reporters.

“If there was any new evidence that exonerated the defendants, I would be the first one to start approaching the governor on options on bringing justice to the matter. But I’ve seen nothing, at this point, that leads me to believe that Judge (David) Burnett should on the basis of newly discovered scientific evidence grant a new trial,” McDaniel said.

You don’t have to be an AG to realize that since this is exactly what I said back in July.

Then again you can’t bring facts into a discussion with zealots.
