End of Watch(2012)

Best propaganda film I have seen in recent memory. Movie convincingly establishes:
1) events depicted are realistic, Mexican drug cartels are ruthless,
2) if events in movie are realistic, LAPD is not enough,
3) if LAPD is not enough, an alternative is to continue letting the Fed army depicted in the film operate on American soil against citizens of the several states without their expressed consent or any accountability to us.

Yet, it is also true that the "War on Drugs" created power enjoyed by the Mexican drug cartels in the first place, thereby producing blowback necessary to keep the cycle of violence growing. If drugs were legalized and regulated like alcohol, there would be no need for any of the three propaganda points depicted in the movie.
