Major stupidity
7 March 2002 | by kelkel75See all my reviews

I had never heard of this story until I watched this movie just about a year ago.. I HOPE that they were thrown in jail.. If they weren't, this justice system sucks... Just shows what a bunch of stupid bible-beating hillbillies some people are. It is a good movie, though.
