Crime + Punishment

Stranger Says:

Are you aware of the number of people in prison for crimes they did not commit, or else crimes that are so minor that white people would not even be arrested for them? Would you be shocked to learn that all of them are people of color? Would you be shocked to learn that the New York City Police Department continued to demand that officers arrest a certain number of people per day, even when the officers had found no criminals, and even after the courts specifically prohibited NYPD from having these quotas? This documentary tells the stories of such “criminals,” and also the good officers trying to fight against the quotas scandal. Their stories are intercut with gorgeous bird’s-eye views of the city’s exteriors in various seasons.
