The seven five

book cover image: the seven five

The New York City Police Department's 75th Precinct or "The seven five" was itself policed for rampant corruption in the '80's and '90's.  In particular one officer named Michael Dowd received a sixteen year prison sentence for drug-related offenses.  This film will keep you spell bound and leave you speechless.  It shows what happened and tells why.  A great documentary about some of the darkest times in Brooklyn's history.  Could it happen here?
