Description

Amidst a landmark class action lawsuit over illegal policing quotas, "Crime + Punishment" intimately observes the real lives and struggles of a group of black and Latino whistleblower cops known as “The NYPD 12” and the young minorities they are pressured to arrest and summons in New York City. Over four years of unprecedented access, the film cinematically exposes the interconnected stories of systemic injustice in New York City policing through the bold efforts of a group of active duty officers, an innocent young man stuck in Rikers and one unforgettable private investigator. They bravely risk their safety, careers and livelihoods to bring light to harmful policing practices which have plagued the precincts and streets of New York City for decades.
