DO NOT RESIST (Documentary Screening)
Start Date: 9/19/2016Start Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:

The Institute for Criminal Justice Ethics invites you to a screening of DO NOT RESIST

DO NOT RESIST asks:  Do we want our local police departments to be “gifted” with  military vehicles and combat equipment – at the risk that they will perhaps become quasi-military in their attitudes and operations?  TRAILER > http://www.donotresistfilm.com/

Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST– the directorial debut of cinematographer Craig Atkinson – offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. The film puts viewers in the center of the action – from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team and inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments – before exploring where controversial new technologies including predictive policing algorithms could lead the field next.
