Un coupable idéal

In May 2000, a tourist from Georgia was shot and killed by a black assailant in Jacksonville, FL. The police picked up the first black “suspect” who happened to be available. This Oscar-winner documents one of the more appalling miscarriages of justice in recent American history.
