"We Stand Corrected: Dannemora," a film by Richie Elson

When Richard Matt and David Sweat escaped from Clinton Correctional Facility in 2015 it shook the state of New York and the prison system as they knew it. The investigation into the escape left no stone unturned and as blame was being placed it seemed to rest on the heads of the Corrections Officers (C.O) and the Superintendent. What the state seemed to forget was the budget cuts, policy changes, and the denied request for lockdown that had all happened previous to the escape and made Clinton the scapegoat. But, as we all know, there are always two sides to every story, and this film sets out to tell the other side and give the C.O.’s a voice. This is We Stand Corrected: Dannemora.Cast of Characters:Richie Elson………Producer, DirectorDavid Elson……….Richie’s Father, Retired C.O., Former Clinton EmployeeGene Palmer…...Former C.O., Aided in Matt & Sweat’s Escape Learn more about your ad choices.
