We paid for a movie showing in the theatre in our university center of DO NOT RESIST. The movie has won many awards as it powerfully documents the recent militarization of the nation’s local police forces. This film highlights the disturbing trend that has started after 9/11. Many local police forces have requested and received vehicles used, or new, from the ongoing conflicts in the middle east. It also makes note of the increased surveillance from police both on the ground and from the sky. It was astounding to learn how much of our tax dollars go towards these activities and how the police are not even trained to properly operate the military vehicles they receive. The film is definitely worth seeing and we were happy to show it for free for all who came to watch it.
