The truth sometimes is hard
25 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The truth does hurt and it is ashame that these boys where in fact railroaded. Everybody involved(in the film) was given the opportunity to speak and show(there side) and I feel the director did his share with offering the sides of the 4 people involved in the persecution of these boys. Let's see. One child stabbed the victim and yet all 4 get life sentences. Charles Manson did A lot more and did not get life without a chance of parole. It was truly unjust and I hope that they get a better and fairer trail in their appeal. I do feel for the family of the victim, but to portray him as an innocent by stander (I mean his good friend did sell drugs) while his family tore apart the parents of the other children. His father was a detective and his son was involved in drugs. The one child who stabbed (and admitted it) the victim should do time and there is no hesitation in that. However the other's did not deserve such harsh sentences. Just my opinion. I found this movie very invigorating and eye opening.
