Important Piece of New Orleans History
The lynched were likely innocent of the crime. I have read most of the secondary writings about this event, and this is a fairly balanced movie. One should not be so quick to state that the movie is biased. Richard Gambino might have added a little to the police chief's character, but the chief was an ambitious man. A lot happened before this incident. Also, the drive-by shooting happened in reverse. The real shooting involved people driving by and shooting into a building and not the other way around. The earliest writers made the lynched out to be mafia men and black hand men, but since the 1970s... writers have changed their opinion based on better research.
