Executive Producer Sean Penn presents "Witch Hunt," a gripping indictment of the American justice system told through the lens of one small town. Voters in Bakersfield, California elected a tough on crime district attorney into office for more than 25 years. During his tenure he convicted dozens of innocent working class moms and dads. They went to prison, some for decades, before being exonerated. He remains in office today. This story on a micro level mirrors what the US has experienced over the last eight years. When power is allowed to exist without oversight civil rights are in jeopardy. Written by

You will have read other comments, obviously this was a travesty on every front for each family and everyone affected.
I was disappointed that it did not go in to any detail as to WHY the police just knocked on their doors with warrants and took their children away.
Who made the decision to just arrest these people and on what grounds - I think that's a question anyone would ask after watching it. People somewhere should have been bought to justice, surely!? You would certainly hope so.
Regardless this takes nothing away from a very interesting and shocking insight in to so called justice - replicated all around the world of course.
I would highly recommend watching Witch Hunt. I can only hope these poor people were given millions in compensation and can find some forgiveness.
Bless your souls!
