Documentary: “The Gang Crackdown”

The Social Justice Ministry is sponsoring two showings of “The Gang Crackdown,” a documentary from PBS’ award-winning series, Frontline. With “The Gang Crackdown” we see how Long Island has become the forefront of this administration’s policing and immigration policies. We see the history of gangs on LI and the Suffolk County Police Department’s response. For the first time the public is presented the effect of these policies on teens of color. The actions of the School Resource Officer in Huntington High School illustrate how teens are being unlawfully detained, and the reality of the school-to-prison and school-to-detention pipeline.

Bring your youth and let us discuss together what is really happening in our schools.

Be informed. Please share this with others interested in public safety and criminal justice.
