Is Justice Being Served?
Everyone knows the McDonald’s coffee case. It has been routinely cited as an example of how citizens have taken advantage of America’s corporations and legal system, but is that a fair rendition of the facts?
Hot Coffee reveals what really happened to Stella Liebeck, the 81-year-old Albuquerque woman who spilled scalding coffee on herself and sued McDonald’s, while exploring how and why the case garnered so much media attention, who funded the effort, and to what end.
How corporate America destroyed our rights in court
[Hint: Corporations fabricated AstroTurf organizations to undermine our legal standing against them in court whenever they are liable for anything from irresponsibility, to criminal negligence, to rape. Yes, rape. KBR/Halliburton got a case against them redirected to private arbitration in the case of the group rape of Jamie Leigh Jones.] See the film, and decide who really profited from spilling hot coffee.
“Stunning debut … Sends audiences out of the theater thinking in a brand new way.”
“Entertaining, informative…vividly illuminating.”

Why was Pfc. Jamie Jones gang raped so badly by US soldiers ahd Halliburton/KBR contractors that she needed reconstructive surgery? Rape is a perk for our troops in Iraq -- homosexual sodomy of fellow US soldiers, sexual assault of nearly all female troops and support staff, rape and murder of Iraqi girls (maybe boys and prisoners, too). Don't ask, don't tell. It's torture, it puts people (prisoners as well as soldiers) in their place, keeps the hierarchy/patriarchy and our culture of violence alive. It's CIA policy.
