The Seven Five
This riveting film examines the case of Mike Dowd, a corrupt Brooklyn cop who became dirtier than the drug dealers he was supposed to be policing.
During the crack cocaine explosion of the late 1980s and early 90s, one man -- a New York City police officer -- brazenly led a crew of crooked cops to build his own empire in East New York. Michael Dowd, labelled "The Dirtiest Cop Ever," turned the department's 75th Precinct into the dirtiest ever, both protecting and robbing drug dealers and lining his own pockets. His arrest in 1992 led to the largest police corruption scandal in New York City history.
