    Better This World

    The story of Bradley Crowder and David McKay, who were accused of intending to firebomb the 2008 Republican National Convention, is a dramatic tale of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal. Better This World follows the radicalization of these boyhood friends from Midland, Texas, under the tutelage of revolutionary activist Brandon Darby (who snitched them out). The results: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges and a high-stakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant. Better This World goes to the heart of the war on terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America.

    almost one and a half year ago Lisa Fithian wrote a good article about the background of the story, on her "Rag Blog" she deals extensively with the case:
    A great deal has been written about the case of the Texas 2 and can be found at http://www.freethetexas2.org

    brandon darby made it into the wickedpedias too, the article is interesting because of the many links at it's end:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brandon_Darby

    on mother jones are another article about the case and an interview with the makers of "better this world"
