True Crime

Two young gang bangers ride up to a couple of teens ask where they’re from, and when they don’t get the right answer they pull out guns and start shooting. One teen is killed and the other gets away. Johnny Sanchez is a 14-year old kid who lives in the neighborhood and he happens to match the description of one of the shooters, and because Johnny has a friend from school who is in the gang, the police consider him a suspect. Although Johnny had never been in trouble before, they put his picture in a lineup and he is identified as the killer. The only problem is, the lineup was obviously suggestive.
