Week 5

Analyzing The Thin Blue Line

After the film

After The Thin Blue Line was released, Randall Adams was finally granted a new trial and was exonerated. He was no longer in jail, and was no longer identified as the killer of officer Robert Wood. Adams is not the only person who has gone through this ordeal.

This week we will be looking at the aftermath of the film, what happened to Adams and Harris, and examining the issue of innocents incarcerated.
