Do Not Resist



Do Not Resist - SC posterThis urgent documentary explores the militarization of local police departments—in their tactics, training, and acquisition of equipment—since 9/11. With unprecedented access to police conventions, equipment expos, and officers themselves, filmmaker Craig Atkinson (the son of a SWAT team member) presents an eye-popping nonpartisan look at the changing face of law enforcement in America.
