True crime documentaries are always interesting...especially with the cussing not cut out.

An interesting documentary that details a decade-long tale of police-corruption in NYC, as told to the filmmakers in amiable interviews. What I felt to be lacking was if cops truly felt remorse for all the poverty and killing they contributed to society.

This is the kind of true story that fictional movies about "dirty cops" are based on. Makes you wonder how many corrupt cops there are in this country as well as other countries in the world.

I thought this was really well done, it flowed well & to hear it from the actual officers/ex-officers made it very captivating. I was expecting a mediocre movie based/inspired by the true events, but this was so much better.
The sentences each officer got seemed pretty lacking.

Highly recommend.

I'd heard a few things about the rampant corruption of the NYPD in the 80’s & seeing this gave me a snipet of what it was like & justhow far the corruption went.

However, it also makes me wonder if its truly not happening anymore, not just in those precincts but any country where the police are respected (not feared). I know theres the odd case but I mean to the same extent. Seems to me they still have that "good cop" "bad cop" mentality.

The Seven Five refers to the 75th precinct located in Brooklyn New York which was the location of extraordinary police corruption back in the 1980's. About Ken Eurell and partner Michael Dowd. Amazing that this is what it was and across other NYPD precincts. Nice documentary!
