Steve JaymesThe Interrupters, which aired on Frontline last night, is currently streaming for free. It’s also on DVD/Bluray. It’s about violence prevention under the aegis of CeaseFire, a Chicago organization, and a portrait of three “violence interrupters” — Ameena Matthews, Cobe Williams, Eddie Bocanegra — trying to protect their Chicago neighborhoods from gunfire, beatdowns, chain-whippings and other bad stuff.

Imagine what this movie would be if Jerry Bruckheimer got hold of the material and turned it into a narrative.
