As other reviewers have stated, this documentary treats everyone with compassion and respect--the gentlemen who are homeless, the officers trying their best to help with what resources they have, non-profit workers, attorneys and judges. It makes me truly proud to live in Milwaukee--and proud of our police. There are a lot of bad things going on, but those often overshadow the good, and I really appreciated this filmmaker's holding up a mirror to unflinchingly reflect both the darkness and the light--and taking pains to show that the police are not all bad.
The only thing that I really wish they'd addressed are issues around people panhandling who will turn down food or other assistance offered by passersby. The other elephant in the room is the fact that some people panhandle without actually being in need of the money, or being in need but consciously choosing to manipulate others; research has been done that shows a large segment of the panhandling population are intentional vagrants who move from town to town and are often guilty of committing violent crimes. I'd be very curious to hear how the gentlemen of Milwaukee feel about this, and what they'd want the public to know before giving someone change.
I also wish they'd interviewed more than one judge and perhaps some of the folks who run The Guest House or other missions / shelters.
Still--all-in-all--generally well-rounded, and definitely a compassionate look at the people whom most folks tend to not want to see.
