Title Should Be Self Defense While Being Mugged
4 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title of this movie, if based on real events, should be: Self Defense While Being Mugged.

How can you possibly say there was no motive, when the evidence clearly showed Officer Van Hooten was MUGGED by Edmund Perry, who was shot in self defense.

This IMDb Summary of the plot is the most laughable: "The Edmund Perry Story (TV) Edmund Perry appears to have things all going his way when he graduates from Phillips Exeter Academy with a scholarship to Stanford U. when an unfortunate meeting with a police officer ends his life."

That "unfortunate meeting with a police officer" was Perry Mugging the police officer!

Get the facts.
