Johnny Depp is going to bat for the Memphis 3. Great cause, I hope the publicity that he can bring to the case does some good.
This case clearly reveals the inferior, unprofessional and narrow-minded hayseed police force and prosecutors that took "the easy (and corrupt) route" towards "solving" a crime that they were CLEARLY incapable of handling. This was nothing more than "Keystone Cops get a wink from Judge Good Ol' Boy" - NO MATTER HOW YOU SLICE IT. And now three innocent youths' lives are totally destroyed - not to mention that there is STILL NO JUSTICE for the murdered boys and their families.
So finally - SIXTEEN YEARS LATER - Depp and his fellow "Beautiful People" jump on the bandwagon of social justice and hip-ness (between all of their other photo-op's) to call attention to the injustice. Good timing, folks! Better late than never, I guess... The defense team (and the people that organized and tirelessly assisted them) deserve all of the credit for this cause - NOT the terminally hip "movie stars" and "rock celebrities." They've contributed very little (i.e. their faces), overall.
