An egregious case of American news media's attempt to push a narrative and destroy someone.

Thank you Clint Eastwood and WB for having the balls to make this movie. This was a disgusting display of power of government and the media.

I believe he did, but he died back in 2007 when he was 44 years old. He lived long enough to see himself vindicated at least. He became a household name for all the wrong reasons, but I think most people who remember it remember him being railroaded too.

Yes, at least $500,000. There may have been more that were quietly settled.
