Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brian Tyree Henry, and RJ Cyler co-star.~Kaitlin Elise Miller
Rick is by no means a saint but being locked up as long as he has is just one more example of system wide corruption. Guys the longest serving non violent offender in Michigan history only potentially getting out in 2020. Makes you wonder how many people have been rail roaded due to corruption.
