A Murder in the Park Reviews:

Highly suggested — this is one of the most fascinating and disturbing documentaries I have ever seen. It shows what happens when a seemingly civic-minded professor of journalism sets out under the banner of the Innocence Project to see that justice is done in a murder case. In reality, the professor is a sociopathic media huckster with a ebook deal and Hollywood film in mind. He is eventually revealed as a finished fraud, and his useful student volunteers as a package of unprincipled idiots, but not before they have collectively succeeded in getting the guilty boy released from prison, and framing an innocent boy for the crime. The twists and turns in this poor tale are too convoluted to receive into here. Suffice it to say, this is an astonishing, meticulously documented and brilliantly crafted documentary about what happens when an uncritical media, disinterested justice system, and different conscienceless manipulators receive together and turn justice on its head. Filmmaking at its most brilliant and most effective.


Greetings again from the darkness. The idea of "the scales of justice" refers to what is right and just. It's a lofty and worthy goal, and one that we U.S. citizens grow up learning is the foundation of our legal system. Sometimes, however, the wheels fall off and the system gets off-track. Co-directors Shawn Rech and Brandon Kinder discover one such quite infamous case.Here's a fast synopsis: Cops arrest suspect for a double murder (1982). Suspect found guilty and sentenced to death (1983). Just prior to execution, extra notification is submitted and the suspect is freed (1999). Other suspect is charged, found guilty and sent to prison. Fifteen years later, charges vs the second boy are dropped and he is released from prison. Evidence points to original suspect, who has been pardoned and cannot be re-tried.The above phrase "additional information" is the key to the film. Northwestern University Professor David Protess and a group of his journalism students, working under the auspice of the "Innocence Project", set out to cast doubt on the guilt of Anthony Porter – the prisoner just days from execution. The students' work with Personal Investigator Paul Ciolini yields contradictory witnesses and a confession from other man, Alstory Simon. The effect of their findings gets Porter released and turns him and themselves into media stars, while also leading to the state of Illinois banning the death penalty.The movie is exceedingly well documented and researched, and provides interviews from detectives, lawyers and Mr. Simon, among others. It's a procedural documentary that questions the very procedures of the justice system … shooting holes and raising red flags on the steps and a multitude of folks involved with the situations over the years. Unfortunately, we don't receive any acc directly from Professor Protess (since released by Northwestern), but that's likely due to the inexcusably shoddy work from his group and his unlimited grandstanding since getting Porter released.We all know there are truth-minded journalists, but it's quite frightening when those on the another end of the spectrum can so easy gain power and influence … especially when teamed up with a less-than-scrupulous personal investigator who proudly spouts that the guidelines don't apply to him.This is a very interesting and detailed look at various personality types, legal procedures, media influence and the role of truth and justice. The movie starts with a very unusual dmca stating the movie studio "does not guarantee the precision of the content". The name of the studio? Entire Truth Films.


This stunning and mind-boggling documentary, directed by Shawn Rech and Brandon Kimber, and inspired by " A Miscarriage of Justice" by William Crawford, made my "blood boil" and my "skin crawl".The movie initially focuses on a squad of "concerned" citizens and professionals, in conjunction with the media, who have worked successfully to receive the release of a death row inmate (Anthony Porter), just 48 hours before his scheduled execution. However, there's a major twist to this movie, as we search out that this same squad appears to have coerced and used intimidation to elicit a false confession from other innocent boy (Alstory Simon), regarding a double murder in Chicago's Washington Park.This squad would consist of, at the time, Northwestern Journalism Professor David Protess, his Innocence Project along with a group of overly zealous but terribly naïve journalism students, Personal Investigator Paul Ciolino, and attorney Jack Rimland. How this squad reportedly used the media, state officials, and the courts to pull this off was absolutely amazing.The consequences of all this would prove to be dire as Simon would sit in jail for years. Thank goodness for attorneys James Sotos and Terry Skl, who took Simon's situation and had to war the system to test and receive some sort of justice for him.Overall, this documentary can receive somewhat confusing as so many names and cases are involved, but, for me, it was definitely worth the time, as the film just astounded me. Just when you think you've seen it all, you realize you haven't.
