I am so glad that I did not listen to the nay-sayers. This was a fact based film about police abuse of power. Personally I am a supporter of the boys in blue. However we all know about facts being tainted by higher ups who want to win to advance careers. I don't trust prosecutors who encourage planted evidence and evidence hidden to advance their personal careers , regardless of what is right Look at Steven Avery. Set up in every way maybe to avoid a hugh payout and maybe vengeance after such a long time. This film however true, seeks to show that power, can indeed be corrupted. It may or may not be factual but it shows that we must all be vigilant.
