POLICE BRUTALITY SUMMARY and MOVIE SUGGESTIONS are: Rampart (2011) has department and retiree guilt and incriminating statements, confessions by a Rampart Division cop with family problems. Police abuse is common partly because the job is frustrating because they do not tend to know where to look or what to focus on, and juries tend to allow persons to go free. Safe (2012); The Raid: Redemption (2012); The Raven (2012); Sleepless Night (2012) a corrupt police officer must return the cocaine he took from a vicious dealer to release his son from the dealer! Fast Five (2011) has drug cartel money kept in the police department safe by a foreign police force that is almost completely owned by the cartel boss! The Son of No One (2011) is a a police corruption drama. Most persons in local law enforcement may go out on disability. Harry Brown, Brooklyn's Finest, Cop Out (2010) show that the police often are not as competent as non-police or civilians. 2009 movies showing police corruption or incompetence in Sherlock Holmes, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans (2009), District 9, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Fast & Furious, Public Enemies, Taken, and Police, Adjective aka Politist, adj. Traitor (2008); Surveillance (2008) has a trick in its plot that may make it not seem to be about law enforcement abuse by law enforcement, but it is brillaint at emphasizing not getting stupid while travelling, be careful of authorities, avoid isolation and pay attention to the concerns of childern or animals. Serpico (1973) is a true story about corruption in NYPD should be compared with American Gangster (there have been allegations that the rate of corrupt is false in the so-called true story), and the fictional Training Day, Street Kings, Team America: World Police Movie, Dark Blue, Hot Fuzz.

The comedic Police Academy franchise shows bungling police. The Choirboys (1977) is an older movie, but it is about a Joseph Wambaugh book and may be more factual than fiction because it is set in Rampart Division prior to the Rampart Division scandals that happened after the Los Angeles Riots of 1992 that caused about $4 Billion in property damage; prior to those riots the Watts riots in Los Angeles were perhaps partly caused or mishandled by the same persons in command in 1965! Los Angeles Police Department was accused of spying of persons in the entertainment industry, and the ACLU filed a lawsuit. Both the shooting of Officer Rothmiller and spying on persons in the entertainment industry may have been done to benefit the oil indusrty.
