This documentary is an excellent insight into what goes on behind the scene for all parties involved. Until all lives are valued as equal, and people are not acting out of bias and fear, these stories must continue to be told.
This brought to tears! It's so powerful! These crooked cops must be held accountable! Black lives DO MATTER!!
I am sorry to the family of Dontre, b
heartbreaking and sad what this family is going through , there is no justice so by the end of watching this you feel a bit hopelessly sad.
