who do you call for help
when you can't call the police?
"In Lakeview Terrace, a young couple Chris Mattson (Patrick Wilson) and Lisa Mattson (Kerry Washington) has just moved into their California dream home when they become the target of their next-door neighbor, who disapproves of their interracial relationship. A stern, single father, this tightly wound LAPD officer Abel Turner (Samuel L. Jackson) has appointed himself the watchdog of the neighborhood. His nightly foot patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort to some, but he becomes increasingly harassing to the newlyweds. These persistent intrusions into their lives ultimately turn tragic when the couple decides to fight back" (Source: Wikipedia)
The movie Lakeview Terrace besides the neighborhood problem raises an interesting issue: our society cannot live without police unfortunately but what happens when an element of the police abuses of his position?
In case you're readying for moving check that Samuel L. Jackson won't be your new neighbor as in Lakeview Terrace.
