Police brutality is an epidemic that is affecting POC across the country, and the number of deaths due to police brutality is still rising. Our video aims to enlighten people about the conditions that POC face from police while also providing a solution-oriented view about how police should actually act toward the public. Through satire and exposing the racism that permeates the system, we hope to communicate how unwarranted cases of police brutality can be. We used actors from Real Chi Youth as well as a script and Final Cut Pro in order to bring these issues to light. We used recent events, such as the use of excessive force on unarmed teens in bathing suits during the pool party incident in McKinney, Texas, in order to bolster our argument.
