A Must See

Very well written, acted and directed. Gave the needed human touch to a tragedy. I only gave it 3 versus 4 stars because the shooting in the film depicts the film more accidental than does actual live footage. The actual footage shows the four steps the officer took including stepping back to aim before murdering the young man.
