Son of Baldwin – **********SIGNAL BOOST! PLEASE...
@MichaelAWoodJr details "policing that is corrupt, intentional or not"

sonofbaldwin: "When good cops go to their superiors with what they’ve seen, their superiors retaliate by suppressing the truth and leaking to the entire department that the officer is a 'snitch' (police officers are the originators of snitch culture).... In turn, the other police officers take revenge by not responding to the 'good' cop’s calls for help when they are out in the field. They alienate and abuse 'good' cops until they have no choice but to leave the force–that is, if they aren’t set up to be murdered."

Jill Godmilow: The “pornography of the real” involves the highly suspect, psychic pleasure of viewing “the moving picture real” … a powerful pornographic interest in real people, real death, real destruction and real suffering, especially of “others”, commodities in film. These “pleasures” are not brought to our attention...

P. Harrill: "I think of storytelling as a kind of citizenship, so I don’t blame people for wanting to know the stories unfolding in Blacksburg, nor do I blame journalists for telling those stories. Still, how one gathers the facts, why you gather them, and the way you tell them can’t be separated from the story you’re telling."
