    it is powerful filmmaking.

    I saw it on opening weekend; the day before the Zimmerman verdict was announced. Ugh. So sad.

    Global warming & smoking cigarettes = Nothing to worry about? Those who deny climate science are ignorant, evil or worse. Google Fred Singer.

    •  My husband and I will try to go tonight (5+ / 0-)

      It seems like the right time to go and it's still playing here.

      I've read people comment how this case reminds them of Zimmerman/Martin, but to me those cases are totally different.

      Maybe I'll changed my mind after we see the movie.

        I was going to ask you to explain this:

        I haven’t seen the movie yet. I already know the story. I lived it, sort of, in real time. I still don’t know what to make of it, not the trial, not the verdict, not the new possible “shift in blame.” I just know that I would not feel safe traveling on BART without the BART Police. Yes I hate they are armed; sometimes it seems excessive. But I know what they face and since I don’t carry a gun I’m glad they do.
        Maybe I should still wait for the explanation.

        A well written diary. The community spotlight people must think so, too. I just want to make sure I'm not misunderstanding.
