Movies that Matter Beacon: The Newburgh Sting

When: Fri., March 25, 7:30-10 p.m. 2016

Tells the story of four men that were lured into a plot to bomb Jewish centers in the Bronx. The directors make extensive use of government surveillance video shot during the year in which an informant, Shahed Hussain, presented the plot to the Newburgh men, offered them $250,000 and supplied them with the weapons to carry it out. The film builds a credible circumstantial case for the entrapment defense.
