Super Cops (2014)
1h 30min · Documentary, Crime, Drama · 1 January 2014
Cities across the US have been looking toward New York and its aggressive, 'preemptive' policing - which features the controversial stop and frisk program - as a panacea for their own law enforcement challenges. The Big Apple boasts shrinking rates of violent crime and increased quality of life. But a darker side to this success story is emerging - it involves police assaults, corruption, racial profiling, statistics fixing and abuse. Is this the best model for 21st Century policing? The feature documentary Super Cops presents an intimate and complex portrait of various stakeholders grappling with this unfolding conflict. With unprecedented access to whistleblower cops, progressive precincts, embattled policy-shapers, and young minorities with hidden cameras, Super Cops will present unexpected stories that reference the larger social issues revolving around America's cities today.
