Greetings again from the darkness. 80% of women in US prisons are
survivors of domestic violence, rape and/or abuse. This statistic is
crucial to understanding not just the story in this documentary, but
moreso, the underlying issue that is screaming for attention. Wrongful
incarcerations have a disproportionate impact on poverty-stricken
families and communities.
This film focuses on the story of Deborath Peagler. Her charismatic,
drug-dealing boyfriend violently abused her, forced her into
prostitution and abused her daughters. At her mother's suggestion, she
asked a couple of crips' gang members to convince her boyfriend to
leave her alone. The convincing got out of hand and Deborah was
The Los Angeles District Attorney office threatened Deborah with the
death penalty if she didn't confess to planning the murder. See, there
was a $17,000 life insurance on her boyfriend and they were sure they
could pin a murder-for-profit scheme on her. Deborah believed the DA
and chose not to die. Her confession got her a 25 year to life
sentence. This was 1983.
While in prison, Deborah earned two associates degrees, held a top
prison job and was a social leader amongst the women prisoners. A model
prisoner by any standard. In 2002, California passed a law allowing
courts to reconsider decisions when evidence of physical abuse had been
withheld from the original trial. Enter two young pro-bono attorneys,
Joshua Safran and Nadia Costa.
I won't go into detail with all of the corruption and cover-up and
injustice that occurred over those next 7 years, but clearly it is a
disheartening story that sheds light on the downside of a political
office being responsible for justice. The Los Angeles District
Attorney, Steve Cooley, is exposed for his power hungry ways and need
to avoid scandal regarding poor law work from his office.
The film is both inspirational and motivational. Witnessing the spirit
of Deborah Peagler over the years gives you hope for humanity, while
also acting as expose' on a system that has many problems.
Look, I am no bleeding-heart liberal, but I do recognize injustice when
it slaps me upside the head. I firmly believe justice is compromised
given the politicized system we now have. District Attorneys campaign
based on their conviction rate ... their ability to be tough on crime.
Is it possible that corners are cut and poor judgement supersedes
compassion and doing what's right - all for the sake of a high
After the film, there was a panel discussion that included attorney
Alan Bean from friendsofjustice.net and Reverand Gerald Britt from
CitySquare (CitySq.org). Both of these men, and their many associates
are fighting daily for JUSTICE over procedure. I am not pushing any
agenda or any specific organization, but I do believe more conversation
and insight is needed to ensure our Justice system is actually
providing justice, and not just a system to serve those running for
