10/10/2014: New Gary Webb movie, Kill The Messenger

I hope this is showing in theaters in my area. The movie has an awesome cast with Jeremy Renner, Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia and more legit actors. Looks like a decent portrayal of Gary Webb, who blew the whistle on CIA-cocaine trafficking schemes and may have been "suicided" to silence him. He published a book based on his explosive work, it is called Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion. It appears that is a link to his book on Scribd,if you happen to have a subscription.

Here is a trailer for the film. The crack epidemic seems to have been a major factor in destroying the civil rights movement radicalized in the form of the Black Panthers.
