"EXTREMIST"
In 2002 Denver Copwatch (a police monitoring group) and several other human rights organizations became of aware that they were the subject of police intelligence operations. What was more disturbing was the label "Criminal Extremist" in their files. In 2004 Jacob Crawford interviewed 31 people from different organizations all baring the label "criminal extremist". The stories unveil disturbing revelations of how and who police have maintained files on since "cointelpro" and at what extent they must be spying on people today with the Patriot Act as a legal justification. "Extremist" shows how intelligence gathering has been used for decades to criminalize populations who are not status quo, people who are poor, people who think differently. This documentary draws the parallels between the criminalization of youth of color and activist communities through surveillance and the distortion of intelligence.
