John Walker is white supremacist. Now after hearing his speech, four boys go out and kill a young Hispanic. The Prestons are hired to defend one of them, who is the grandson of an old friend of the Prestons. They convince their client to testify against the others, which he does. The Hispanic's brother, a law student, feels that getting the ones who killed his brother is not enough. He wants to file a wrongful death suit against Walker, cause he incited those four men to kill someone who wasn't white and his brother was the first one they came across. While the Prestons agree to do it, they receive harsh criticism that they are attacking the First Ammendment but nevertheless they persevere. Written by
Could have been made about Matthew Shepard's Murder !
This was a very good movie on its own. I liked it even more in that it coincidentally so closely parallels the real life gay hate crime murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming, and how it is believed that anti gay messages and TV commercials from various groups are responsible for this and for provoking anti gay hatred.
