Smart ass kid goes looking for fun and adventure
11 May 2000 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

A psychologically abused teen, unable to settle down, goes to another city and gets himself bumped off by the local law. His distraught parents then spend several years trying to prove the police had no business shooting the boy, who the police said had a gun at the time of his death. Good drama about a pair of parents who were unfit for their role as childraisers, but who cared enough to seek justice for their child's death. Really gives the law a black eye.
