"An injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere"




If you're interested in law and obvious miscarriages of justice, please rent Murder On a Sunday Morning.






Murder On A Sunday Morning

Directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade
Beating out some of the most poignant and powerful films of the last decade, this gripping, edge-of-your-seat whodunit catapulted to the top of “must see” lists everywhere when it emerged to win the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A mesmerizing thrill ride, MURDER ON A SUNDAY MORNING is invigorating and heart-wrenching at the same time--the stuff suspense novelists only dream of writing.Jacksonville, Florida, May 2000. Mary Ann Stephens is shot in the head at point blank range in front of her husband. Two hours later, Brenton Butler, a 15 year old black male, is arrested walking down a nearby street. Mr. Stephens identifies him. Butler signs a confession.Everyone involved with the case, from investigators to journalists, is ready to condemn Butler, except his lawyer, Patrick McGuiness. A dazzling and magnetic presence of Hollywood proportions, McGuiness reopens the inquiry, and in a dramatic and absolutely spine-tingling sequence of events, he and his team discover a slew of shocking and troubling elements about the case. Did Brenton write his own confession? Where is the concrete evidence? And most importantly, can the police be lying?

What I like about this film is how it proves people can go on the stand and lie about something that could ruin another person's life. And smile through it and then go on with their lives. This film proves that.

I think his lawyer loved the camera tho..lol but he did a great job, especially with the cross-examination of the cop who took Butler's "confession." It had to be the best cross-examination, I've ever seen. However, I think Tom Meserau's cross-examination of Star Arvizo was almost perfect.

Come on IM ME Amorfati00

you think I care that you got my IM and my e-mail? Obviously this blog has hit a nerve that some of you are dying to find out who I am. The blog bothers you that much. Go ahead, keep digging.

If you're somewhere on the eastcoast how come your blog's time is Pacific Time? You in San Fran? Did BLOGGER lay off your blog (and also give you advice on how to keep it up)because David Bowman did the redesign on Blogger?

Is it cool being two peeps at once?

Blogger Anton Jackson said...

LOL You're not that intelligent. Go to any other blogger and with the same black design and they will have the same designer smarty pants. And I live in Alamitos, California, you know my dad is in the marines, a government area. You would be shocked to find out who I am.

I'm leaving. Louise's blog is more interesting than yours and hers has a lot more people flocking to it.

your blog is about as interesting as luke warm water.

keep telling yourself that nobody knows who you are.

One thing is for sure, you came here alone. Nobody forced you. And go ahead with that information you believe you have on me...do something with it. Come on. Go ahead. Let's see what will happen to the blog if you find out who I am.

Actually I really live on the East Coast in New York, City. Or maybe in New Jersey, or perhaps in Philadelphia. Or in los Alamitos California near the Army Airfield. You choose.

Gavin and Star fear the ghost of false allegations. That's why they acted like that when Walt confronted them.

when there's not enuf evidence to find ANYONE guilty, that means they're innocent!

there wasn't ANY evidence that leaned towards guilt. and when reading transcripts, try reading the cross examination and not just direct of the state's case

Blogger pyt in nyc said...

the state's case came forth from tom "maddog" sneddon. he's been after michael for years, he has an uncontrolable obsession. the defense's case was much more reasonable and any person with sense can see that, michael fan or not.
