It's thought provoking for sure, how far would you go if a supposed 'authority of the law' told you to do things that are vile, violating, and crosses inappropriate boundaries. If this had been a fictional tale, it would be easy to write off due to it's credibility. But since what happens in the film has happened 70 or more times in 30 states, makes it absolutely sickening and ridiculous. I was infuriated and squirming in my seat the entire time.
