A true hero
25 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching this documentary and I am in tears. This is a must see. It's heartbreaking to see how our justice system failed Kalief. This is still happening to thousands of black men but no one hears about it because most just plead guilty to crimes they did not commit. Kalief did not give up, he fought the justice system head on. I am heartbroken with how this documentary ends but I will not spoil it for you. Please watch this, hopefully it opens at least one person's eyes to the injustice of our system.
