17 Stories of Injustice to Watch After When They See Us
The Green Mile
The Green Mile is in many ways, a fantasy film. Its central character is a death row inmate who was wrongfully accused of raping and murdering two white girls. Not only was he wrongfully accused, the inmate has supernatural abilities that allow him to heal the sick and grant people with unnaturally long lives.
In spite of these gifts and his innocence, he’s still executed. His death serves as a reminder of the cruelty of our criminal justice system, and the death penalty itself. To take a man’s life is a decision no person should have the ability to make.
