‘The Interrupters’ takes new approach to stopping violence
The documentary “The Interrupters” focuses on the Violence Interrupters, a group of former criminals-turned-community protectors in Chicago, and their method of confronting crime directly at the source of the conflict in order to “interrupt” violence before it escalates. Violence Interrupter Ameena Matthews and filmmaker Steve James discuss the documentary and this hot-spotting approach to combatting crime.
