The State Bar of Nevada filed a disciplinary action against Gentile for his comments, which resulted in a reprimand. The case ultimately reached the Supreme Court and became a landmark First Amendment case on lawyer speech. The story is told through interviews with Gentile (including excerpts from the actual press conference) and his attorney Michael Tigar; the Chair of the Disciplinary Committee Dennis Kennedy and the State Bar's attorney Robert Klonoff; and Las Vegas reporter Al Tobin and Ed Koch, who covered the underlying crime."

This disc is a recorded DVD and may not play on all DVD players or drives.
Originally produced as a motion picture in 2012.

CREDITS: Director, Kelly Anderson; producers, Allison Lirish Dean and Kelly Anderson; editor, Kathryn Barnier; photographer, Jamel Shabazz; original score, Benjamin Fries and Simon Beins.

SUMMARY: "My Brooklyn follows director Kelly Anderson's journey, as a Brooklyn gentrifier, to understand the forces reshaping her neighborhood. The film documents the redevelopment of Fulton Mall, a bustling African-American and Caribbean commercial district that - despite its status as the third most profitable shopping area in New York City - is maligned for its inability to appeal to the affluent residents who have come to live around it. As a hundred small businesses are replaced by high rise luxury housing and chain retail, Anderson uncovers the web of global corporations, politicians and secretive public-private partnerships that drive seemingly natural neighborhood change. The film's ultimate question is increasingly relevant on a global scale: who has a right to live in cities and determine their future?"--Publisher's website.

No Way Out But One (DVD). 90 min.

CAST: Narrated by Barry Nolan.

CREDITS: Produced and directed by Garland Waller and Barry Nolan, written by Barry Nolan and Garland Waller.

SUMMARY: A documentary which presents the story of Holly Collins, who, in 1994, became an international fugitive when she grabbed her three children and went on the run. It all happened because a family court had ignored Holly's charges, the children's pleas, Holly's broken nose, Zackary's fractured skull, and other medical evidence of domestic violence. The family court gave full custody of Zackary and Jennifer to Holly's ex-husband. It was at that point that Holly came to believe she and the children had No Way Out But One. In what has become an incredible saga, Holly eventually fled the United States. For a while, she lived beneath the radar, hiding on Indian reservations, in Mexico and Guatemala. With three children and no passports, incredibly, she made it to Amsterdam where she blurted out a plea for asylum. The fact that she was fleeing domestic violence and would not be protected if she were returned to the US, seemed ridiculous at first. But Holly had come armed with legal and medical documents. At first, she and her children were treated as refugees, living in a refugee center with others fleeing violence from around the world. Living shoulder to shoulder with people learning to use indoor plumbing for the first time in their lives, Holly and her kids made the best of it. At least they were safe. Holly became the first US citizen to be granted asylum by the government of the Netherlands. She lived a quiet, low profile life for the next 14 years, until FBI agents came calling. Hoping to return Holly to the US to face kidnapping charges, they interviewed her now grown children. Jennifer and Zackary told the agents that far from being their kidnapper, their mother was their savior and their hero. Eventually, all charges against Holly were dropped, save one: contempt of court. In September of 2011, Holly and her children returned to the US.

Nearly 95 percent of all cases resulting in felony convictions never reach a jury, but instead are settled through plea bargains, in which a defendant agrees to plead guilty in exchange for a reduced sentence. Critics contend that the push to resolve cases through plea bargains jeopardizes the constitutional rights of defendants, who may be pressured to admit their guilt whether they are guilty or not.
