If this is not evil, nothing is.
16 November 2001 | by (Warminster, PA) – See all my reviews

I felt nothing but loathing for the rape victim in this film. Just because a crime was committed against her, cannot justify her act of deliberate false accusation of an innocent man. And the fact that the prosecutor (clearly) knowingly went along with it is worse. The evidence was all there right from the beginning -- everyone KNEW that they had an innocent man. All of the evidence and witnesses refuted the victim's claims (lies) the he was her attacker. When 1 person says to me "this is so" and a dozen people say "this is NOT so" it is clear who is lying and who is telling the truth. What is really sickening is that everybody clearly knew they had an innocent man. But they didn't care -- they just wanted their pound of flesh -- and didn't care who's hide it came out of. The prosecutor, the police, the judge; EVEN THE COLD-BLOODED JURY THAT CONVICTED HIM! It was only after the real rapist voluntarily turned himself in that the truth came out. The prosecutor, when confronted with the irrefutable, said, "I am not an evil man." If this is not evil, nothing ever was. What is sad is that this is a fact-based story. It really happened and does happen. I had the utmost respect for our nation's system of justice. Never in my life, until after having seen the chronicle of events told in this film, would I have believed our county's justice system to actually be capable of UGLINESS.
