Witch Hunt In Kern County

On Tuesday April 28, 2009 MSNBC aired a documentary entitled: Witch Hunt in Kern County.

The purpose of this documentary was to chronicle the unraveling of a small town's justice system. The main characters in this film were working class moms and dads who all were wrongly convicted of child molestation. They served lengthy prison time and were ultimately exonerated. All of the convicted were recklessly pursued by the same District Attorney, Edward R. Jagels.

This documentary was produced by KTF Films. Click here for more information and to view this documentary.  

Unfortunately this story is being experienced all over the country with different villains. Innocent persons are being relentlessly pursued and convicted of crimes they did not commit. For what reason? It is very evident that prejudice, which comes in many forms; both social and ethnic, money and politics play a vital role.
