Referred to as "The Film the Police Arrested," Broomfield's scathing account of the Lancashire Police Force Liaison Division's handling of young, sometimes pre-teen, petty offenders is both devastating and deeply moving. The film was banned for 15 years.

This documentary was filmed in Blackburn, England in 1975 and was then deemed too controversial for public viewing until years later. The presentation was good and I watched it yesterday, then wrote my review. I kept waiting for my assessment to show here but it did not. A few minutes ago, it suddenly dawned on me that iTunes did not appreciate my comments, LOL, even though I expressed my point of view politely. Therefore, I don't know what to tell you now, except for this: Read my title and maybe it will inform you that this is an interesting movie to see. (I thought it was.)
PS. You may also wish to see the follow-up documentary of these people fifteen years later (Juvenile Liaison 2).
