Abstract:

In October 1967, the seven children of James and Annie Mae Richardson were poisoned. Mr. Richardson, a poor, African-American farmer, demanded justice, but ended up convicted of the murders and sentenced to death. This video presents proof that the case was manipulated by the prosecutors' office. A less clear-cut case concerns two men charged with murdering a hot dog vendor and one of his customers. The main witness was a known prostitute whose testimony was fraught with inconsistencies. Key players help detail the series of investigations, trials and legal wrangling that led the men to be tried more often for the same crime than anyone else in U.S. history. Both stories show how easy it is for the justice system to fail, even when there is a life on the line.
