| Thought Provoking drama about capital punishment
I think this is a decent and entertaining TV film from 92. It is based on true events in the life of a former police officer turned technical adviser, Jurgenson. Deseret News article written by Scott D. Pierce in April of 92 has a good article detailing Jurgenson's involvement. IMDb doesn't want us to post URLs, but I found the article in a 5 minute search. I've watched it twice and was engrossed each time with different details which I won't give away. I would recommend it to anyone interested in police stories, or reflection on capital punishment. I would agree with a previous reviewer that the church does not support capital punishment.
