Dixie Chick Maines Fights For Justice
Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie Maines has started a defense fund for three Arkansas men that she (and many others) believe were wrongly convicted of killing three children in 1993. On the group's website, Maines encourages fans to watch the HBO documentaries, Paradise Lost and Paradise Lost 2 to get the whole history of the case that sent teenagers Damien Echols, Jesse Misskelley and Jason Baldwin to jail. While Misskelley and Baldwin received life without parole, Echols continues to sit on Death Row. Maines is directing her supporters to the website, wm3.org, where they can donate money to the West Memphis 3.
