The Thin Blue Line
Randall Dale Adams was convicted for murder and was about to be sentenced with the death penalty. The only thing was, he claimed innocence for the crime.
The victim was a Dallas police officer named Robert W. Wood, who was killed by the real murderer during a traffic altercation.The force failed to immediately make an arrest, and relied on a lead by someone who claimed to be a witness. David Ray Harris identified Randall Dale Adams as the culprit.
Was the witness saying the truth?
This documentary explores the claims with interviews and reenactment. It also outlines testimonies from Harris, Adams and the detectives who were working the case. Adams attorneys also present the facts and suggested the lack of evidence by the prosecution, as well as the veracity of the claims by their primary witness. The reenactments done were of several versions, but the one that actually had Harris (the witness) shooting the victim was not included.
Adams case was reviewed following an appeal and at the time this film was released, he also earned his freedom.
Presented by Errol Morris, this film was originally set to be about the psychiatrist of the prosecution panel, who counselled countless of prisoners who were sentenced with the death penalty.
