Following the stories of Bruce Lisker and Reggie Cole who spent year after year in prison for murders they didn't commit - audiences get a harrowing look at how barbaric the US justice system is. The film ultimately asks how we can survive the prison model at all, and looks at better solutions for conflict resolution, harm reduction, crime and more. Hosted by filmmaker Matthew Cooke and guest hosting representatives from the massive range of Americans joining forces to change this broken system.Written by
A few more facts that would have been good in this film !
I wish the documentary would have expanded more on the following :
Most people serving time.. Put themselves in situations to go there or associate with those who help them to get there ..
There are a million others things in life to do than sitting behind bars .
If you do become incarcerated in the US ... You have free and better access to healthcare, dental care, mental healthcare ,legal aid and free educational opportunities more than the average working American on the outside.
If you find yourself incarcerated , take full advantage of all of the above mentioned benefits while you, particularly health and educational .
A lot of people go to prison and prefer go BACK to prison because they actually make more money being incarcerated then being on the outside
People tend to get more charges inside than what they originally went in for in the first place .
Youth prisons tend to be worse than adult prisons..much worse !
If you are not educated on the above mentioned when you go in , you will have a Ph.D. On criminal enterprises by the time you get out ..
Most importantly. nothing and no one is worth your freedom !!!
If you are not about " that life"... Do whatever you can to stay out !
Good job with this film !!
