Most recently the country has been up in arms around the case following the deceased young teen, Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman , the man responsible for taking his life. When cases involve murder one would think the case might be a little more cut and dry than this current one is turning out to be. Many attribute this to race, the fact that Trayvon’s killer was is a white man and if thing were to be switched and it was white child gunned down by a black man he would be in jail. The taste of injustice fills the mouths of many minorities and this may change or solidify the views that they have towards the justice system, all of it, especially the part people are closer to the police.
This makes a good documentary because the relationship between the community and its civil servants is always relevant. It can change the entire atmosphere of a neighbor hood. Do people feel safe, threatened or a little bit of both? The subjects would be everyday pedestrians of different races, age groups, and areas around New York trying for variety. I would like to question officers themselves. Due to the fact that people are everywhere and active all times of the day and armed with opinions the topic would be very accessible.
