    Enjoyed the documentary and speakers...wish we had time to meet after to discuss as this is an issue that will hopefully get a positive response. Does anyone remember the name of the former inmate who attended Loyola Marymount in LA??

      What a great detective you are! I should have remembered his name, too! I am interested because 2 of my children attended LMU and my son is active in the alum group. I sent the link to him. I am wondering if LMU has a program to help former inmates who are trying to turn their lives around. Looks like the other speaker on the right is attending also per your research!

      Yes, you could be right about the former inmates thing. LMU has a Law School, a thing called the "Center of Restorative Justice," and who knows what else. They've got a good film school - LMU was our daughter's second choice if she didn't get accepted at Chapman's Film School.

    Thanks for the invite. Powerful film. A friend had recommended I see the film, glad I did. Apologies, I could not stay through the entire panel discussion. Would enjoy another documentary. See you later.

    My apologies to anyone who looked for us and couldn't find us. It was kind of crowded and chaotic. Normally we meet 15 minutes before the show time and go in together about 5 min before the show. Then after the end credits roll, we meet again in the lobby for discussion. There were so many people there that many of us went in and got seats early. And since there was a panel discussion with the filmmaker afterwards, we didn't have our usual meeting. (Actually, a few of us did stay after the panel to talk.) Anyway, your best bet is to look at the web site and look at the picture of the host (the person who scheduled the meetup) and look for them. Sorry if we missed you - this wasn't a typical meetup!

    Looked for someone I knew but didn't find anyone - maybe we need airport signs (joke). The numbers are alarming & the facts of how many, who they are, where they are & the history of the political rhetoric that fuels each onslaught all very interesting & well put together. I know the filmmaker's quest was bringing this travesty to public attention but there is so much more to this issue. Like alternative solutions to jailing the users & sellers! I'm all for separating them from violent offenders who commit a crime - on drugs or not - with equal sentencing but FIRST we need REAL PROGRAMS IN PLACE & FUNDING FOR THEM or they'll be dropped right back into the problem areas with the same lack of purpose & hope that got them into drugs. I know of too many families victimized by people on drugs & I can't think of one issue without the other. My best friend was murdered in his home by a repeat female drug offender he mentored w/her mother & gave his life trying to help kids on drugs in S. Sac.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
