Trump Documentary about Chicago Riots

After being at the Trump rally for over 8 hours and seeing everything that led to the chaos, we’ve decided to turn our footage into a documentary.  At this event I was actually spit on by a trump supporter.  The supporter was  on top of a parking structure.  And I was below getting footage of all the protesters.  In the documentary we tried to explore why people support Trump and why people don’t like him.  You can see the escalation of the events that led up to the riots.

One of the main causes of the chaos was tensions between protesters and police.  Before Donald Trump even announce his candidacy there was protesting going on in Chicago.  The Magnificent Mile in downtown Chicago with shut down twice. Once on Black Friday one of the most profitable days for retailers.  The Chicago police shot Laquan McDonald 16 times and it was suspected that the mayor of Chicago buried the story until he won the election. Protesters called for Rahm Emanuel the mayor of Chicago and Anita Alvarez the state’s attorney for Cook County Illinois to resign.  Organizers celebrated the defeat of Anita Alvarez who was defeated by Kim Foxx.

Mr. Trump isn’t completely in the clear of this situation.  In the Southern states Mr. Trump rallies, have had several racial incidents. Donald Trump has talked about how great it would be to beat people up at his rallies and saying “I would like to punch him in the face.”  Mr. Trump even said he would pay the legal fees if a supporter beat up somebody on his behalf.  So when his supporters actually start exhibiting some of that behavior it shouldn’t be a surprise.

In the film we explore: What caused the riot?  Whose fault was it?  What can we do to make sure this never happens again? Was this another case of police brutality from the Chicago Police Department?  All these questions and more will be answered  as we take the journey of 3 film makers that experienced it live.
