Go inside the Newark Police Department—one of many in America ordered by the federal government to institute reforms due to patterns of civil rights abuses against black residents. Journalist and historian Jelani Cobb rides along with two of the department’s officers, and his cameras document raw footage from arrests, conversations with police as they conduct routine stop-and-frisks, an interview with Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, and more, to offer a broad look at the issue. As the debate over race, law enforcement, and civil rights continues to unfold, this thought-provoking documentary provides a balanced examination of the mutual mistrust between the police and the community, and the difficulty of fixing this broken relationship.
