I can't believe the racist people that are writing reviews here. Regardless, this movie will truly open your eyes.
5 March 2018 | by deelish-23399See all my reviews

I've only really heard about the problems black people face when dealing with the police and from a few videos of police shootings that were completely uncalled for. This gave me a much better perspective of what is actually happening. The movie was filmed as you would see on an hour long special on the history channel. It's a bit above average production. I don't generally watch these types of films but the trailer for this movie intrigued me enough and the source material is something that I feel everyone should know more about including myself. And after reading these other reviews, do you guys have family in the LAPD or something?
