The Legacy: Murder and Media, Politics and Prisons

From murders to manhunts to a win-at-all-costs political campaign, this riveting exposé presents the disturbing story behind the passage of California’s stringent "Three Strikes" law. Through candid interviews and news footage, Mike Reynolds and Marc Klaas—brothers-in-arms turned bitter opponents—and other key players including judges, legal analysts, and state officials illuminate both sides of this heated issue, revealing in stark terms how criminal justice policy is debated and promoted in today’s media-saturated political climate—particularly in a state where more money is spent on building prisons than on education. (77 minutes)
