An urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States. Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST - the directorial debut of Detropia cinematographer Craig Atkinson - offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action - from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team and inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of "righteous violence" to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments - before exploring where controversial new technologies including predictive policing algorithms could lead the field next.Written by
How can you expect people of color from that area to be kind to you, when you have drones watching over them, raid their homes with the slightest of evidence and have a dozen cops with military arsenal walking around them all the time?
You don't see doctors with syringes up in your face, just in case you'll need them or a firefighter with a hose pointed at you, in the eventuality that you'll be set on fire.
The government. should calm down from its obsession towards weapons if they want the citizens to give up theirs. I have a feeling that soon we'll watch another documentary from Ferguson called "Winter on Fire part 2".
The U.S. forfeited a long time ago from the race of 'the greatest country in the world', but won the 'we have a lot of weapons, though' race and this weird fetish will cost them in the long run.
