The Movie "SNITCH"

Next week, a new movie entitled "Snitch" opens in theaters. It's based on a true story described in a 1999 Frontline documentary of the same name, in which a father becomes an informant to work off his son's mandatory drug sentence. Here's a link to the trailer.

Participant Media has created a great public information site to accompany the movie, with stats and stories about the drug war, mandatory minimums, and informants. Check it out: www.TakePart.com/SNITCH. They've also made a hilarious mini-video about the crazy world of the war on drugs. Watch it here: SNITCH: Lock it Down America!
