The regular second Tuesday of the month meeting of South Dakota Peace and Justice will meet on July 10 and investigate the long-term corporate propaganda campaign to convince Americans that they should give up their constitutional rights in the name of tort reform. With three hundred and twelve million citizens in our country, it is easy for vested financial interests to find an occasional case where the system has been abused. The case of the elderly woman who spilled scalding McDonalds’ coffee in her lap was not such an incident!
The multiple film festival winning documentary, Hot Coffee: Is Justice Being Served? will be shown. This film looks at numerous cases that have been totally distorted, and the subsequent atmosphere thus created, which prevents our system of justice from redressing egregious damage to our citizens. Local defense attorneys Mike Wilson and Jim Leach will lead a discussion following the documentary.
The general public is always encouraged to attend our free presentations. We meet at the St. Isaac Joques Church, adjacent to the Mother Butler Center. The church is located at 221 Knollwood , across the street from the Carmike 10 Theater. The meeting starts at 7 PM and usually lasts about two hours. Coffee and light refreshment are served. Please encourage anyone you know who is concerned about the continued erosion of our civil right by the emerging oligarchy in our country to attend.
