The narrative of this film is just full of contradictions. From the beginning until the end, it is pushed that the reason that this crime (and others) are unsolved is because the police do not care, because they are black. Yet, the film also pushes the narrative that the police want any reason to lock up black people. The film only spends one line talking about how witnesses and the community don't want to "snitch". The people who do eventually talk, all give conflicting information. Also, they try to claim the police could just look at cameras in the area and zoom in at the license plate. This was 2002. It isn't like every building has HD cameras like it does today. The film ends with the conclusion that police don't care about solving murders of black rappers, when just recently XXXTentacion and Nipsey Hussle's killers were caught. Too much assuming and conspiracy against the police department, and not much new information on who actually murdered Jam Master Jay.
