Thin Blue Line

 I thoroughly enjoyed watching Thin Blue Line. I enjoyed the repetitious illustration of the events of the night of the murder. Like we discussed in class today, the story left me wary of the judicial system and wondering how many people have gone through that same experience, yet they were never proven innocent. Subsequently, I looked up a list of exonerated death row inmates and it saddens me that years of these people's lives were stolen and they will more than likely never be the same. They were exposed to the horrible things in prison and that leads me to think, even if the person did not commit a crime and is in jail wrongfully, if he/she is released from jail yet was exposed to the horrors of prison and was changed by the experience and committed a crime, whose fault would it be? (Something I saw on Law and Order: SVU)
