Surviving Justice: America's Wrongfully Convicted and Exonerated

Surviving Justice is both illuminating and terrifying as it retells the experiences of 13 people from all walks of life; how they dealt with being innocent and trapped in a system intent on conviction instead of the pursuit of truth; how they finally won their freedom; and how they are adjusting to life post exoneration.

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.

Conviction Movie

The movie, Conviction, is based on the true story of Kenny Waters who was wrongfully convicted for a heinous murder in Massachusetts. Betty Ann Waters, Kenny's sister, believed her brother was innocent and never gave up on him.  Betty Ann puts herself through law school to fight for her brother and eventually gets the Innocence Project involved.

I would highly recommend this movie. Conviction gives a realistic portrayal  of the frustrations and emotional upheaval felt by those that are affected by a wrongful conviction, and illustrates what is necessary to overturn a wrongful conviction within our legal system.

    Find movies and documentaries centered around injustices that have happened in the United States. Injustice is a world wide problem. However in the United States we are all taught to believe that our system of justice has checks and balances so that people don't slide through the cracks. While this was the goal of the founding fathers, it has not held true in practice. More people have slipped through the cracks then is acceptable.
