Any fan of documentary or seeing how 'a' justice system works and fails... look no further to see it basically play with an innocent man's life. A harrowing film with engaging characters and story that stays with you.

If you're poor and black in the US, the "Justice" system is just one of the many humiliations you face. This documentary provides ample evidence of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, 7 May 2011
By

This is a riveting documentary which I cannot recommend highly enough. It simply shows the events that transpired following the murder of a tourist in Florida and the subsequent trial and incarceration of what was clearly an innocent 15 year old boy. The fact that the local Police simply arrested a random black child, beat a confession out of him and then tried to send him to the electric chair without a shred of evidence is a depressing indictment of the depths to which the US legal system has plunged.

*** Spoilers ahead ***

By the end of the film I was pleased to see justice finally served but was left wondering how many aren't so lucky.

I was also fascinated by the fact that the family seemed to attribute their son's aquittal to God's munificence rather than to the brilliance of the public defender. Depressing but fascinating.
