It was bad then, but not any worse than it is today
11/15/17. This was actually a good documentary about a decade of unrest and chaos. Both sides get to tell their story, the black community that felt put upon by the police, and the police trying to do its job without offending the black community and the politicians. It was a sad time, but no sadder than it is today.
