Storyline

In the wake of the 2015 death of Freddie Gray in police custody, Baltimore was a city on the edge. Peaceful protests and destructive riots erupted in the immediate aftermath of Gray's death, while the city waited to hear the fate of the six police officers involved in the incident, reflecting the deep divisions between authorities and the community -- and underscoring the urgent need for reconciliation.

Compelling and Well-Produced
25 November 2017 | by emperormarshmallowSee all my reviews

Ignore comments about this documentary being liberal bias and about "thugs" -- this film is a historical and situational look into the lives of the Baltimore community, both citizens, police officers, and everyone in between. This documentary seamlessly ties together everyone's competing realities over Baltimore and the 2015 riots and asks bigger questions about the effectiveness and accountability that exists (or lack thereof) within legal and judicial systems in the United States, particularly Baltimore.
