A little West Memphis Three news:
I am so glad they walked out. John Fogleman is the last person who should be seeking an office like this.
From the Arkansas News:
More than a dozen protesters, unhappy with the way John Fogleman prosecuted three men for the 1993 murders of three West Memphis 8-year-olds walked out of a news conference Tuesday in which the Crittenden County circuit judge announced his candidacy for the state Supreme Court.
Fogleman made his announcement in the Old Supreme Court chambers at the state Capitol.
Fogleman announced to a crowd of about 50 that he plans to run in the May 2010 election to fill the seat of Justice Tom Glaze, who retired last year. Arkansas Appeals Court Judge Courtney Henry is also running for the seat.
The protesters, who took off their shirts to reveal T-shirts that read â€œAbuse of Powerâ€ or â€œWest Memphis Three,â€Â silently walked out of the room while Fogleman was discussing his candidacy and reasons for seeking the office.
