'What Happened in Vegas?' Shocking and heart-breaking. It's A Question Of Balance with Ruth Copland

Ruth Copland has been out and about covering the 2017 Cinequest Film Festival in Silicon Valley. This week she is featuring guests from What Happened In Vegas, a shocking and heartbreaking documentary about three murder cases where all the victims were shot by the police. The film had its world premiere at Cinequest and reveals a police department seemingly willing to go to any lengths to protect its image and hide its crimes. The film also features good cops trying to act with integrity within a broken system, and considers what has gone wrong and how it might be fixed. Listen here What Happened in Vegas? | It's A Question of Balance (broadcast 11 March).

Ramsey Denison, the director, producer and editor of the film decided to make the film after he witnessed police brutality, called 911 to report it and then was beaten up by police and arrested himself for doing so. He covers this story in the film as well as several cases including the police killing of West Point graduate Erik Scott. Ruth Copland interviews the father of this young man Bill Scott, the director Ramsey Denison, and editor Doug Blush, renowned for his work on Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated documentaries, including The Invisible War and The Hunting Ground.

How Can We Unite? On It's A Question of Balance

Would you like to see the USA more united? Unity ‘is the state of different areas or groups being joined together to form a single country or organization.’ We have the United States. The dictionary also says ‘When there is unity, people are in agreement and act together for a particular purpose.’ Is there a shared goal big enough the American people can unite behind to make us overlook our differences? Listen here How Can We Unite? | It's A Question of Balance (broadcast 25 Feb).

Ruth Copland goes Out and About to get opinions on the street. Are we all in this together to solve our problems, is the answer in working collaboratively - or do you think it’s more a case of the ones who have it ‘right’ finally convincing the ones who don’t? Is part of why we are not united because we don’t see our interdependence? Or that we’ve stopped giving respect to our idealogical adversaries? What do you think? Listen to the conversations and decide!
