Police Tape

In Detroit, an officer shot and killed a 7-year-old girl during a police raid that was captured on camera by a reality television crew. But the footage remains hidden from the public, and the officer involved continues to collect a pay check from the city.

Police Tape is a half-hour film that examines the impact of police recordings over the past two decades. The film features a ride-along with one of the first Oakland police officers to test out the new cameras, the story of an artist facing up to fifteen years in prison for recording his own civil disobedience, and the Aiyana Jones tragedy, in which the hunt for a murder suspect led the death of a 7-year-old girl.
