Working to be seen as a hero in order to cover up their criminal activity is a major motivating factor for some people to become a police officer, especially in some of America’s most dangerous cities. In order to do so, those people often take full advantage of the power given to them when they join special police task forces that aren’t placed under the correct supervision. That abuse of power is highlighted in the upcoming crime documentary, ‘I Got A Monster.’
Greenwich Entertainment is set to distribute the film in theaters and on VOD on March 10. In honor of the film’s release, the distributor has unveiled the feature’s new trailer.
The movie was directed by Kevin Abrams. ‘I Got A Monster’ is based on true events, as well as the highly acclaimed 2020 book of he same name by Baynard Woods and Brandon Soderberg.
‘I Got A Monster’ follows the explosive true story of the Federal indictment of Wayne Jenkins and the Gun Trace Task Force in Baltimore. In a city plagued by racial tension and violence, plain-clothes detectives from the Gun Trace Task Force had been celebrated for holding the Thin Blue Line, but in fact were really terrorizing Baltimore’s Black community.
These dirty cops were stealing and reselling millions of dollars of drugs while brazenly planting evidence and falsifying police reports. However, they didn’t plan for a campaigning defense attorney or a secret FBI wiretap operation to end their crime spree and expose decades of criminality inside the police department.
