Excellent documentary film "The Interrupters - How To Stop A Riot".
Tells the surprising story of three dedicated individuals who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once perpetrated. These 'interrupters' intervene in conflicts before the incidents explode into violence. Their work and their insights are closely entwined with their own personal journeys, which, as each of them points out, defy easy characterisation.
Shot over the course of a year by acclaimed filmmaker Steve James, it is a vivid portrayal of a city under siege from spiralling violence, including the brutal murder of Derrion Albert, a Chicago high-school student whose death was caught on videotape.
These wonderful human beings, part of the CeaseFire campaign, are truly extraordinary. They deserve as much support as you can give them.

the wonderful actor Tom Hardy in an astonishing role.
Stuart: A Life Backwards.
This is my favorite Sunday morning show. Fareed's got cojones and is not afraid to ask the tough questions of whatever person or situation. Plus, he is bit younger than most of the bloated talking-heads from the networks.
Last Sunday he has Israeli Defense Min. Barach Ehud on who has no comment about nuking Iran. Within three years Barach said Iran would have nuclear weapons. (The Israelis have vowed to stop any Iranian missile program).
Several commentators on the Euro crisis did not sound upbeat. Italy and Spain are in the contagion zone and only at least 5 years of austerity measures there and in Greece can stop the contagion. The German and the French combined could bail-out the affected countries but they want austerity measures.
If the weaker countries do not adhere, the Euro is sure to fall.
