I just finished watching this excellent Frontline doc by Jelani Cobb called Policing the Police. I think it’s one of the most interesting and even handed overview of race and policing in the United States that I’ve ever seen. It’s got a very strong thesis, but I think it provides a very evenhanded view of the situation from all sides.
Cobb goes on the streets in Newark with the police and with activists and you get to see through the camera what the situation looks like for many parties.
It’s one of the best episodes of Frontline I’ve seen in a while and definitely worth watching. Best of all it’s not geofenced in Canada!
