A superbly done Documentary, that couldn't be written this well.
16 December 2009 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent series I heard about on the Sundance channel & rented this 5 part mini-series as I could get my hands on it. This shows all of the hope, despair, loss, bangers, gov't issues, & the plain absurdity of parts of the running of a city. This shows the difference in the issues in a city of people who seem to have all of the problems you can imagine. Cory Booker the Mayor of Newark is a quite intelligent articulate Man who will be a force in larger politics in the future. He seems to really have the drive of personality and intelligence & know how to get things done. This follows both him, the Director of the Police, a woman named Jayda & her husband who wrote a book called "Bloods." I don't want to sound too cliché' but the political infighting & tough streets are too real to bear sometimes. I recommend everyone to see this absolutely fantastic series. My only complaint is that I wish it was a couple episodes longer. What this most reminds me of is the Brilliant show "The Wire" except everything about this is real. So if you like "The Wire" you are bound to like this. Thank you Forest Whitaker for getting this done. Drew
