Criminal Justice :
Without a shred of evidence, the Cobb County Police arrest Justin Ross Harris immediately following the tragic death of his toddler son. In order to obtain search warrants the police lie and the prosecution uses those lies to concoct a salacious motive for murder. The press feed the lies to the public who viciously pass judgment on social media without fear of consequence. Fatal Distraction shows how the cumulative distortion of the truth destroys a father’s chance of a fair trial.
FATAL DISTRACTION has two goals:
1- To help pass the HOTCARS Act through the Senate requiring all cars to have sensors to warn parents when a child is left behind.
