“Better This World” is a good documentary for those interested in seeing how the “justice” system really works in this country.

Excellent. Absolutely mind boggling. I shudder to think such a travesty as what's shown here could be possible in Canada. Wish I could be sure that it couldn't.

Well-done documentary about an incident I hadn't heard too much about. Despite the subject matter, the director manages to maintain objectivity.
