Goofs

The movie is set in Oklahoma. Several references are made to execution in the gas chamber. Oklahoma has never used the gas chamber for executions. Electrocution was used from statehood (the first in 1915) until 1966, using an electric chair, "Old Sparky". Since 1977, the prescribed method is lethal injection. See more »

She was a Puppet on a string
23 October 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

If this movie was true to fact, Well then the people who were on the jury was very blind. This poor girl was a puppet on a string, Form the way I got it is the dead beat she was with influenced her with drugs,fear, and a misguided sense of the word Love. Pumping her up with drugs then pumping her up with words to do something that with out the drugs she wouldn't even think of doing. full grown adults can be influenced with the help of drugs, and we're talking about a 15 year old child with a want to be needed and a place too call home. They had a chance too help this little girl, But instead they influenced one another too kill her. Did this happen during an election year? I don't know but it's very wrong when WE stop helping kids when they get into trouble, Ain't that what kids do?
