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
Worth watching. There has been a militarisation of the US police no doubt. The problem lies in the biase of the film makers. This is not a journalistic documentary, but a propaganda documentary. They have clearly misrepresented their intentions when filming Police. They clearly have an anti-white racist agenda towards Police. They targeted small town USA, where most folk and Police are White Americans. and the militarisation of the Police in these areas is unnecessary. Conveniently ignored the real problems of Policing. They have produced a documentary that is typically liberal. Focused on the exceptions to the rule, and not the rule. Blatantly anti-white racist. I wouldn't be surprised if George Soros was the money behind this circus.
