Plot – Spoilers:
LAPD officer Abel Turner has worked his ass off to afford the gated community home where he lives with his two kids. And he’s pretty proud about it. He’s also big on race and well-defined racial genres. So when an interracial couple move in next-door, Abel disapproves and tries his best to be a nuisance.

At the end of the day, Abel’s just a bitter man who can’t stand others moving out of the predefined zones that he’s sketched out for them and uses race to silence and embarrass them.

What’s effed up about this is that it’s based on a true story with the officer in question, Irsie Henry losing his job eventually after multiple cases and several years of harassment accusations.
