Beyond the Classroom presents "Better This World"

Description:
How did two boyhood friends from Midland, Texas wind up arrested on terrorism charges at the 2008 Republican Convention? Better This World follows the journey of David McKay and Bradley Crowder from political neophytes to accused domestic terrorists with a particular focus on the relationship they develop with a radical activist mentor in the six months leading to their arrests. A dramatic story of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal, Better This World goes to the heart of the War on Terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America. &A terrific case study of the ethical, policy and legal dimensions of the use of government informants and the resulting entrapment defense. [The film] encapsulates well the ongoing tensions in our society between ensuring our security and liberties. This is a real winner.  Professor William C. Banks, Syracuse University. {Will appear in FYI on May 2, 2012
