||Synopsis: In 1999, just hours before his scheduled execution, convicted killer Anthony Porter's life was saved by a journalism class from Northwestern University, led by renowned Innocence Project pioneer, Professor David Protess. The class seemingly found the real killer, Alstory Simon. Porter was released, becoming the poster boy of the anti-death penalty movement. Because of his case, Illinois eventually abolished the death penalty. The filmmakers present strong evidence that Northwestern's investigation led to the release of the real killer, and imprisoned an innocent man. In October 2013, due in part to this film's investigation, the Cook County State's Attorney's office reopened this case. Written by Anonymous

Greetings again from the darkness. The concept of "the scales of
justice" refers to what is right and just. It's a lofty and worthy
goal, and one that we U.S. citizens grow up learning is the foundation
of our legal system. Sometimes, however, the wheels fall off and the
system gets off-track. Co-directors Shawn Rech and Brandon Kinder
explore one such quite infamous case.
Here's a quick synopsis: Cops arrest suspect for a double murder
(1982). Suspect found guilty and sentenced to death (1983). Just prior
to execution, additional information is submitted and the suspect is
freed (1999). Another suspect is charged, found guilty and sent to
prison. Fifteen years later, charges against the second man are dropped
and he is released from prison. Evidence points to original suspect,
who has been pardoned and cannot be re-tried.
The above phrase "additional information" is the key to the film.
Northwestern University Professor David Protess and a group of his
journalism students, working under the auspice of the "Innocence
Project", set out to cast doubt on the guilt of Anthony Porter the
prisoner just days from execution. The students' work with Private
Investigator Paul Ciolini yields contradictory witnesses and a
confession from another man, Alstory Simon. The result of their
findings gets Porter released and turns him and themselves into media
stars, while also leading to the state of Illinois banning the death
The film is exceedingly well documented and researched, and provides
interviews from detectives, lawyers and Mr. Simon, among others. It's a
procedural documentary that questions the very procedures of the
shooting holes and raising red flags on the steps and
a multitude of people involved with the cases over the years.
Unfortunately, we don't get any account directly from Professor Protess
(since released by Northwestern), but that's likely due to the
inexcusably shoddy work from his group and his endless grandstanding
since getting Porter released.
We all know there are truth-minded journalists, but it's quite
frightening when those on the other end of the spectrum can so easily
gain power and influence
especially when teamed up with a
less-than-scrupulous private investigator who proudly spouts that the
rules don't apply to him.
This is a very interesting and detailed look at different personality
types, legal procedures, media influence and the role of truth and
justice. The film begins with a very unusual disclaimer stating the
film studio "does not guarantee the accuracy of the content". The name
of the studio? Whole Truth Films.
