ABC's 20/20 covers the tragic death of 23-year-old Florida girl, Rachel Hoffman. Caught with what the Tallahassee police chief described as "about a baggie" of marijuana, she was tricked/blackmailed/threatened/coerced into becoming a police informant, and it cost her her life.
The chief blames Rachel for her death, repeatedly calling her a drug criminal. But it is clear that he is a scoundrel defending incompetent, callous officers who sent a sheep into the lion's den.
As I think of Rachel, I can't shake the terrible thought that a little "Know My Rights" education could have saved her life.
Watch the video, Parts 1 & 2...
