How are American police forces becoming more militarized? In the documentary Do Not Resist, director Craig Atkinson travels the country from Ferguson, Missouri to Washington, D.C., to observe the rise of armored equipment, SWAT teams, aerial surveillance and tracking technology. The film forces us to think harder about the costs of our mistakes.
