The Situation of “Justice” in Tulia Texas

Posted by The Situationist Staff on February 10, 2009

From PBS’s Independent Lens:

A lone undercover cop moves into a small farming town. By the end of the blazing summer of 1999, 46 people are arrested for selling cocaine—nearly all of them African American. It was heralded as one of the biggest drug busts in Texas history, until a team of lawyers set out to uncover the truth.

TULIA, TEXAS premieres Tuesday, February 10 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Here’s the trailer.
