The New York Times and the team behind “The Daily” present a five-part series about the life and death of a Baltimore teenager known as Nook, who was fatally shot by a police officer a year after the killing of Freddie Gray. Nook’s family is searching for truth from the streets where he died, the police who took his life and the city that won’t give them answers.

Well Done and Fair

This felt very well done and fair. It never made it seem like one side was entirely innocent, which sometimes happens.

Very humanizing

Thank you for mostly remaining objective. This is not just a black issue. That city could have stayed great but went another way for all of its residents. Watch some of the la gauge that could be seen as glamorizing “the game” or perpetuating stereotypes.

It tells the story of a dead drug dealer

There is a lot to the story but it is a story of a violent youth with a gun who sold drugs to support himself despite other opportunities. The family apologizes for his behavior which was explored in a bigger context but the bottom line is that the series seeks to excuse his behavior and explain away a criminal lifestyle he chose. The youth, Nook, lived by the gun (to "protect his own") and was shot a police officer who the criminal youth aimed his gun at. His own behavior led to his own demise.

Tears at your heart

This whole series is brilliant! We see the full consequences of Baltimore's Zero Tolerance on crime combined with police corruption and brutality. This shouldn't happen here or anywhere. Infuriating!!
