Synopsis
The untold story of the longest hostage siege in NYPD history and the birth of modern hostage negotiation. In 1973 in Brooklyn, four young African-American men stealing guns for self-defense were cornered by the NYPD. Could visionary police psychologist Harvey Schlossberg convince his superiors to do the unthinkable – negotiate with “criminals” – and save twelve hostages from a violent bloodbath? Schlossberg fought to reform police use of violence and save lives by using words, not guns.
