PSA Blog Post: Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story On Netflix.com
This is PSA (Public Service Announcement) blog post to inform all domestic violence victims and survivors to join us in the Purple Vision Blog Community and watch the true crime documentary movie premier entitled “Murder to Mercy” The Cyntoia Brown Story” on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 on Netflix. This movie is about Cyntoia Brown who at the age of 16 years old is sentenced to life in prison. Questions about her past, physiology and the law itself call Cyntoia Brown guilt into question when she was convicted of the murder and robbery of Johnny Mitchell Allen. Cyntoia claimed that Allen had paid her $150 to have sex with him, and that she feared for her life during their encounter, leading her to shoot him. Prosecutors argued that Brown killed Allen while he was sleeping in order to rob him. Brown was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. After renewed interest in Cyntoia Brown case in 2017, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam commuted her original sentence to 15 years, and Brown was released on August 7, 2019. Her story is detailed in the 2011 documentary “Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story and in her memoir “Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System.
