As Maryland legislators debate the repeal of the state's death penalty, everyone should go to see an excellent documentary,
I greatly appreciated the interview related to the movie ("Q&A: Freed Damian Echols," Feb. 8). Mr. Echols was the only one of the three who wound up on death row.

Second, Mr. Phillips wrote this, "I bought Berg's perspective, though, I wonder if her film appears weaker because of her chosen collaborators [the esteemed director
Consider the fact that a jury convicted the West Memphis Three without any evidence. This is an injustice exposed very skillfully in the documentary. And Mr. Echols, for example, is fortunate to have even survived death row. In the next few weeks, Maryland legislators will repeal the death penalty. When will the legislators in Arkansas do the same?
