I was poking around for something else to watch nd came across the doc called the Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain on HBO Max so I gave it a watch.
I say its a doc, it isnt but its based on a true story.
68 year old black man accidentally triggers his med alert while sleeping and the service gets no response so they send cops out, white cops.
The film covers about an hour and a half to two hours of Mr. Chamberlains life, from 5:30 am until his death around 7am.
What begins as a wellness check ends up, well, you know.
Obviously dramatized but tragic nonetheless.
Seriously depressing and offputting but I also think people need to be continue to be made aware of these instances.
