Episode Involving Gross Injustice!!
9 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The opening part of the episode started with Ben Justin being sentenced for horse stealing. Judge Booker was reluctant to impose the sentence for Ben Justin's crime; nevertheless, he had no redress but to impose life imprisonment for the crime. Deputy Festus Haggen and Marshal Matt Dillion were sure Ben Justin did not commit horse stealing. Garth Brantley and his son set him up to nail Ben Justin on this trumped-up charge -- all in order to pay off his son's gambling debts and keep him quiet to law school. His wife had a baby girl while in the custody of the Kansas State Penitentary for the rest of his natural life. The warden made life so miserable for Ben Justin; moreover, brutality and exploitation had been the better part of Ben Justin's stint in prison.

Later in the episode, an old man had stabbed the guard with the knife. The prison officials claimed Ben Justin killed him. He escaped and headed on to hold Festus at gun point. Him, his wife, and the baby headed to Colorado; they had been targets of a serious miscarriage of justice. The reality: The Justins headed for Colorado because of the nightmare they endured from the almighty Brantley Family -- full of corruptness and revenge. The end grade: An "A!!"
