HBO does the best Documentaries!

This was a great documentary. But people should realize that everything that goes on in any community will eventually leak over into other communities. People would say; "Oh that only goes on in the black or Hispanic community". This is America! We may not all be of the same race, creed or religion but we're all Americans. When Black people scream out the white community HAS to listen! Blacks & Hispanics have been telling whites for years about police abuse, until "Rampart" in Los Angeles no one was listening. If you take care of EVERY community you take care of the country.
