Petition The Whitehouse
25 December 2015 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I am writing this review to encourage members to petition the White House to bring visibility to the injustice within the Judiciary.

Please Visit: http://wh.gov/iw3Po

As for the review, I just finished watching this Netflix special. It was the single best piece of work Netflix has put out yet. I was watching this series by the seat of my pants. My girlfriend and I kept turning to each other asking ourselves "is this real?!" We felt as if we knew the defendants personally, and were so impressed by their story that we decided to make a petition on Whitehouse.gov. Please, watch the documentary and consider signing the petition! //s// C. Payne
