. Stevenson insinuates that because McMillian was a respected black business man who had been having an affair with a white women exposed him to undue prosecution.
There were many inconsistencies in the McMillian case such as; made up eye witness accounts and testimonies by those placing and accompanying McMillian as he committed the crime. Also ignoring eyewitnesses who placed McMillian at a church function at time of the murder. Those actors within this legal system were determined to find someone to convict for this murder, and because of McMillian’s affair with a white women had already been established, he was the main target. What is an eye opener, within this story, is the fact that police and prosecutors had legal immunity, together they suppressed evidence and witnesses were bribed to give false testimonies. They blatantly did considerable damage to McMillian when they were on their hunt for so called justice.
