Crime Watch Daily's Chris Hansen appears in the new documentary "White Boy," which is about as Richard Wershe Jr., also known as "White Boy Rick." Rick was a teenage drug dealer who went to prison for life. "White Boy" filmmaker Shawn Rech ponders why White Boy Rick is really behind bars: for having drugs, or taking down public officials? Full story:


meganjerai : This is going to be a good ass movie.

Miguel Alvarez : "pretty soon little Rick was going to be peddling more than his bike". 😂😂😂

SkyNova : So this is how detroit ended up this way... The government ran it into the ground. SMH

Dawson Brown : So dude was a double agent slanging dope and working wit the feds and at 14 damn

First last : The "funny" thing about this, Is the Detroit police are incredibly corrupt. I live in a suburb of Detroit, I'm white, work a regular job, don't break the law. An even I am TERRIFIED of Detroit police. They are all corrupt and drug dealers, They will flat out murder you and get away with it. I feel safer around gang members and drug dealers because I know they won't bother me unless I bother them. Detroit police will beat anyone's ass, Or just straight up kill you or rob you.

K D : 14 that’s wild. 14 is a child

Justice Williams : So much corruption on both sides.

Mako Reactor : It's so cold in the D

Nona Yabizness : My dad had a bad drug problem for years and he went to the same dealer in Detroit the police never bothered this dealer because they were in his pocket , all the Detroit police are corrupt . I have no doubt the same thing is going on even now , they got paid for leaving the drug dealers alone and looking the other way. Anyone remember how many gold Krugerand's Coleman Young had after Detroit was so broke the school kids had to have their toilet paper rationed ? Sad.

Melvin Lewis : I've seen the Movie and I'm just gonna say this: It doesn't matter what color you are, if you run the streets and the law knows of you! Then you better believe that they will do their best ,to make you a statistic of some kind. Usally turn out ,that its a bad statistic! Don't get caught up in those streets! For it is you that the Streets will eat!! And the crooked law dogs will always devour and ruin a young soul!
