Host and executive producer Keith Beauchamp of The Injustice Files is in Houston this week to host a premiere.
The latest episode to air February 13th on Investigation Discovery channel takes a look at racial profiling and stand your ground.
If you want to see the episode keep reading below for the free premiere in Houston Friday night:
Exclusive screening and meet & greet with filmmaker and racial profiling victim in ID’s newest documentary – THE INJUSTICE FILES: HOOD OF SUSPICION.
On December 31, 2008 Robbie Tolan was shot in front of his own Bellaire, TX home after a Bellaire police officer suspected him of driving a stolen car. That car turned out to be Tolan’s.
Less than one year ago, 15-year old Trayvon Martin was killed while walking to his father’s home in Sanford, Florida.
These two incidents sparked a nationwide dialog on racial profiling practices, including “stand-your-ground” laws, which state that a person may justifiably use force in self-defense when there is reasonable belief of an unlawful threat.
These laws, which on their face may seem fair, have often been used to discriminate against, intimidate and even murder innocent minorities.
ID goes on an in-depth investigation of modern day racial profiling practices in the next installment of THE INJUSTICE FILES series from Emmy-nominated filmmaker Keith Beauchamp.
Looking at three distinct cases that illustrate how self-defense practices discriminate against African Americans, THE INJUSTICE FILES: HOOD OF SUSPICION make its world premiere Wednesday, February 13 at 7 PM (CTL) on ID.
