Has anyone seen/heard of this film and/or original case? http://www.southwestofsalem.com

Several Latina lesbian women in Texas were wrongly convicted of "satanic ritual abuse" during the "Satanic Panic" of the 80s and 90s...

They're still trying to be fully exonerated after recanted testimony, etc, while serving their sentences of decades.

Unfortunately stories like this don't surprise me. I have absolutely no faith in the justice system, it is archaic, corrupt and built to take advantage of the power over the weak and the vulnerable. If you are rich and "powerful" there is no such thing as a fair trial.

 

Thanks for sharing IB
