Armored tanks. Automatic weapons. Tear gas. In small towns across America. When did we all become the potential target of hostile military-police aggression?
Brave new films examines how the federal government decided to arm local police like an occupation force in hostile communities. Why are police forces militarized against the people of their own cities and towns? With little or no protocol or training on when such force and intimidation may be justified.
