Growing up in a small town in Upstate New York, police brutality and misconduct was something I had never personally experienced. The Rodney King beating and riots were basically on another planet as far as our town was concerned. After moving to Los Angeles and having multiple run-ins with power hungry Deputy Sheriffs, I realized that the problem was very real.
