Reckless indifference( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reckless Indifference began as a classic American suburban nightmare of teens, drugs, parents and prison. It has become a compelling story of obfuscation, betrayal, and preferential justice. The film tells the true story of how a backyard brawl at the home of a teenaged drug dealer resulted in the death of the drug dealer's best friend, who by coincidence was the son of a Los Angeles Police Department officer. The ensuing trial sent four teenage boys to prison for life without parole, notwithstanding that only one of the four teenage boys wielded a pocket knife to protect his younger brother, and willingly confessed to his crime. Reckless Indifference also reveals the naivete, guilt and denial of middle class families caught up in the criminal justice system, and chronicles how an overzealous prosecutorial team propelled by the vengeful and grief-stricken LAPD officer's family eagerly abuse an obscure law to their advantage. The Felony Murder Rule states that anyone present during the commission of a felony where death occurs is automatically liable for First Degree Murder. Four teenage boys, only one of whom wielded a weapon (ostensibly in self-defense), now sit in Level IV Maximum Security State Prisons for the rest of their lives. They will never see freedom again
