John Goodman has finally gained some much-needed momentum with the filming and imminent release of “Collusion to Convict – The True Story Behind the John Goodman Trial.”
While John Goodman’s appeal regarding blood draws in criminal cases was recently denied at the state level, the Florida Supreme Court has agreed to consider whether Florida’s rules are adequate to ensure proper blood draws in cases like Goodman’s. Essentially, the Court will determine if current rules are sufficient regarding the screening of blood samples, documenting irregularities and the process for rejecting faulty samples. This could be a big victory for justice advocates who agree that current law is not adequate.
Goodman’s first trial was thrown out over juror misconduct. He was subsequently convicted in 2014. Mainstream media, along with Government and the second largest Automobile Corporation in the world have done everything necessary to secure Goodman’s conviction. The question raised in Goodman’s new documentary: Does he deserve a new trial? Having been convicted for DUI Manslaughter, Vehicular Homicide and Failure to Render Aid, one might ask: How could anyone be innocent of such crimes?
“This case is one of the most shocking cases I’ve ever investigated,” said Investigative Reporter Joseph Snook. The perception of guilt by simply being charged with crimes like John was is nearly impossible to overcome. Add hate fueled mainstream media reports and John was convicted before ever stepping foot inside a courthouse.
Snook continued, “Once I started looking at the evidence, I was literally taken back. The only question for me was: ‘How do we share this with the public.'” Although John’s case is legal in nature, the public outcry against him had to have an impact on Jurors. Seeing how political John’s case was, there was only one answer. Make a film.
It is the US~Observer’s stance that no matter what, the Government should never win at all costs. It is the Government’s job to serve justice, by honoring the oath to uphold law. Breaking the law to win a conviction leaves each and every citizen at risk. If we can’t trust the Government, then how can there ever be true justice?
Goodman’s film asks: Should he receive a new trial? We will let you be the judge!
