Rick Rowley said : “I was in Chicago filming another project several years ago, and I met (journalist) Jamie Kalven. It was soon after the video (of McDonald’s killing) had been released, and he unwound for me the story of how this whole cover-up and all of the aftermath unfolded, and it was clear immediately that it was an incredible story,” External link

Rick Rowley said : “When we originally started this, we didn’t have any clarity on how the judicial process would unfold. We jumped in, and we’re going to finish a film in a year or so. And we came out with the film, and it was great, and it was polished. It ended before we knew anything about how the trial was going to unfold,” “But then, once it was done, and we showed it to Showtime, and Showtime was excited about it, finally we had clarity on when the trial was going to happen. So we asked to hold on to it, open it back up again and keep shooting so that we could include the entire scope of the story” External link

Rick Rowley said : “He never made himself available to respond, to talk about this case or what it meant or his role in it all,” “We spent a year it feels like waiting around in his office, talking to his press people. Not only that he wouldn’t talk to us, even his press spokesman refused to speak to us — a person whose literal job it is to speak to journalists about important issues of the city at the time, refused to do exactly that” External link

Rick Rowley said ( about Van Dyke ) : “We obviously interviewed his lawyer multiple times, and we were talking to the people who were handling press for Van Dyke, and there was interest and it seemed like there was possibility in getting an interview after the trial happened. But then once the sentencing happened, and it was clear they were no longer going to appeal the verdict, they were no longer interested in speaking,” External link

Rick Rowley said : “What becomes visible here is just this whole machinery that makes these cases disappear and that includes hundreds of people who all, in their small ways, believe that they are just doing their job. Not just in the police department, but in the prosecutor’s office, in the mayor’s office, in the media, itself, in the general public. And it’s only at the end (of the film) when you’re able to step back and see … this totality that we all realize that we participated in some way in the atrocity,” “Being able to see the whole sweep of this is an amazing thing that this case allows me to do. I just hope that when people, after watching this, when people read the next article in the police blotter in the back of the paper about a police shooting in Chicago, or anywhere else in this country, that they will take another second before they turn the page” External link
