I decided to learn about Fracking when I was driving down a road near where I live and wanted to know more about the water tanks that were being stored on a normally empty lot.

Hydraulic Fracturing (also called Fracking) is ... well, it's bad.

Paradise Lost

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0117293/ Today I watched part 1 of this documentary called Paradise Lost. I wish I had easy access to parts 2 and 3, but all I've seen is the first. I was appalled at the lack of evidence. I know that the reviews and synopsis say "questionable evidence", but no, there was zero evidence. None. They had an incomplete recording of an interview that never should have happened, hearsay and an "expert" who got a PhD in the mail without ever taking a class. How was this ever allowed in court to begin with? And why did 12 people not do their jobs as jurors when they chose to find these 3 boys guilty "beyond any reasonable doubt" with zero evidence supporting they were even at the crime scene let alone indicating they had committed murder? I was very embarrassed for our judicial system after seeing this documentary
