For many Americans, it is hard to believe that police brutality is an issue that needs serious attention. But the reality is police officers across the country are not always there to "serve and protect." Law enforcement is known for abusing power and preying on civilians. "The Seven Five" and "Crime + Punishment" are two explosive documentaries that give an inside look into the world of the boys in blue, and the lengths some officers will go to protect their own even when they are committing heinous crimes. Which film left you in complete awe?

"The Seven Five" is a story about the crimes of Michael Dowd, a former New York police officer of the 75th precinct. Dowd candidly speaks about running a cocaine ring while on the force and the violence he inflicted on civilians to maintain his power. Dowd didn’t act alone; not only did other officers work overtime to cover up his illegal activity, but he also recruited some to help support his drug operation.
