Do Not Resist

The Detroit Institute of Arts Film Theatre (DIAFT)
is currently showing "Do Not Resist", a film by Detroiter Craig Atkinson. I will see it tomorrow and hope to write a review here. In the meantime, here is what the DIAFT says about the film:

The directorial debut of Detroiter Craig Atkinson (cinematographer of Detropia) opens on the streets of Ferguson, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown. Step by step, the filmmakers reveal an underpublicized phenomenon: how and why small American communities are acquiring technologies, tactical weapons and training originally developed for use in the War on Terror. Do Not Resist―filmed in 11 states over two years―finally brings us into a charged congressional hearing investigating the not-so-simple facts behind the flood of military equipment into small-town police departments.
