HEROES BEHIND THE BADGE Screening in Washington, DC





 

 

 

 

 

Meet Vincent D'Onofrio, the film's narrator, at the May 14th screening!

Heroes Behind The Badge: Sacrifice & Survival recounts the harrowing stories of law enforcement officers who were caught in the line of fire and survived, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

WE WILL BE SCREENING HEROES BEHIND THE BADGE 1 AND 2. (THERE ARE TWO FILMS)
One of the film’s producers, Bill Erfurth, is a retired Lieutenant of the Miami-Dade Police Department and a 25-year law enforcement veteran.

I was just wondering: Is there as much support for those wrongfully accused or victimized by the police?

Regina Caschetto said...

Dear Claire-
I had to respond to your comment. There is a lot of crime, & I am happy to have police forces who try & protect us from criminals. Many times risking their lives for us. There is a bad apple in every bunch. Yes, some police officers overstep their boundaries of authority. I believe they are in the minority. Who protects people victimized by the police? I would have to answer a free press. Given this type of story, the media is usually responsible for getting the story out, & once that happens, these officers are punished by their superiors.
Thanks.
Regina

Saw a story today where the NYPD asked people to post stories on twitter with hashtag myNYDP. It back fired badly with people posting unfavorable pics and stories. I will say however that when I was the victim of a crime I was so relived when the police showed up. They have a difficult job protecting the public. The majority of them deserve respect and praise in my opinion.

Regina,

I absolutely get your point. But as far as I'm concerned where there's a lot of light there's always some shadow as well, be it abuse of authority, excessive brutality, false accusations, you name it ... and I sometimes wish the 'other part' I was referring to would get the same amount of attention.

Moreover I'm generally not a big fan of 'imposed authority' ;-) Nonetheless I sure do appreciate and respect the work of those putting there life on the line every single day which sure isn't always an easy task ;-)
