Film showing at Blue Hill Library

BLUE HILL — On Friday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. at the Blue Hill Public Library, Peninsula Peace & Justice will show “Do Not Resist,” a 72-minute film on the rapid integration of military-style vehicles, weapons and personnel training into the nation’s domestic law enforcement.

This documentary examines the implications of police departments acquiring armored vehicles and other weaponry that has been typically used in battle.

Director Craig Atkinson questions whether this nationwide trend truly serves the goal of protecting the public or is intended more for controlling local populations.

After the screening, Dud Hendrick of Deer Isle, a member of Veterans for Peace, will facilitate a discussion for those interested.
