Not even close to a documentary!

Don't kid yourself. This isn't even close to a documentary. This is a one sided TALE of a person who is trying to push his own agenda. If you watched any of the news videos or youtube videos when these riots took place, you could easily tell the videos in this so called movie were edited to show a specific side of events. I really expected some truth to come from this movie but I found very few actual facts being portrayed. Watching this was literally a waste of time unfortunately.
