Greenville County interim Sheriff Johnny Mack Brown is taking a hands-off approach to a law enforcement documentary because of its political overtones, though a foundation affiliated with his office will accept donations from the film’s premiere.
Kevin Jackson, a conservative political commentator who hosts a radio program that airs on 15 stations, produced the film, “Bleeding Blue: Behind the Badge. Under the Gun.”
Jackson, who is black, said “Bleeding Blue” seeks to dispel the fantasy that blood-thirsty law enforcement officers are preying on black Americans. A trailer for the film posted on YouTube.com includes four separate scenes of gunmen shooting at law enforcement officers.
“For the most part, blacks are guilty and police are not hunting us,” Jackson said of their encounters.
