Synopsis

On the night of November 29, 2012, two black drivers, Melissa Williams and Timothy Russell, were chased by 62 police vehicles for 23 minutes around Cleveland. The chase ended in a barrage of stray bullets, fired from 13 law enforcement officers’ firearms. Williams and Russell died at the scene. In the face of a tragic case of mass hysteria and abuse of power these numbers remain incomprehensible and these grave injustices irremediable.
