“There is no way you can watch this documentary and not come away feeling something. In a lesser film, by a lesser director, the already volatile subject of police brutality could easily be presented as a one-sided, the directors agenda is to get people thinking about the subject matter in ways they may have never considered before.

“A thought-provoking documentary highlighting the human suffering which radiates like ripples on a pond in the wake of criminal behavior not only by racist police with itchy trigger fingers but by cop killers to boot. Cleverly juxtaposes the plight of these two different groups of victims, primarily by showing how the loss of loved ones forever affects their wives, children, parents and friends.”
Kam Williams, Philadelphia News Observer
“…this is a must see film. A film that challenges you to think a lot and come up with your own feelings. A thought-provoking and intelligent film that is as shocking as it is important.”
