The militarization of police forces has progressed significantly over the past two decades, with a dramatic increase after September 11th, 2001. The result has been an accelerated systematic abuse of power and racial injustice. Over the past several years, high profile cases of unarmed civilians of color being murdered by police using unwarranted and excessive force, including Michael Brown, Sandra Bland, Alex Nieto (59 bullets are shown in the video for the 59 shots fired at Alex Nieto), Mario Woods, and hundreds more, has inspired communities to organize and demand justice and accountability. Nationally there has been the formation of Black Lives Matters and locally, within the Sunsets’ home city of San Francisco, there has been Justice For Alex and most recently The Frisco5. Speaking out in solidarity of these movements with the video for White Cops on Trial, The Sunsets’ hope to expand awareness and engage audiences to take action.

The video was created by Christopher Statton, an artist, arts administrator, and community organizer. Special thank you to José Guerra Awe (Rise In Power lettering from his mural “Rise In Power’ on Clarion Alley), Shawn Connelly (Super 8 footage), Piggy (in action!), Megan Wilson (Art Strikes Back footage, support), 14 Black Poppies (messaging), and Sonny Smith (artistic direction).
