Inspired by the slaying of Amadou Diallo -- the African immigrant who was unjustifiably murdered by four New York City police officers in 1999 -- this stirring documentary explores the disturbing history of police brutality in America. Drawing upon a wealth of interviews and personal accounts from police officials, activists and victims, among others, this penetrating film examines the complexity of the abuse of authority from numerous angles.
