CAPE MAY COUNTY, NJ--My name is Joe Berg, and I am the President and State Delegate of Cape May County PBA Local 401, representing the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office. I wanted to reach out and let your readers know about an upcoming event hosted by Local 401. It is a discussion of the film Dinkheller.
Below you will find some brief information on the film, Dinkheller
Twenty years ago, Georgia Deputy Kyle Dinkheller was brutally murdered along a cold stretch of highway in rural Georgia in what has become the most infamous police dash cam video ever captured. The footage itself has been seen around the world millions of times, often attached to false stories and rumors. In 2017, one police officer sought to understand who that deputy was outside of one bad day and, in doing so, found a seed of truth that turned a short film into a feature-length investigation.
Patrick W. Shaver is an award-winning filmmaker, writer, and police instructor. A former Atlanta Police Officer, his film work focuses on the lesser seen side of law enforcement and has been shown around the country. His groundbreaking documentary 'Officer Involved' has been used for training around the world. He has a master's degree in Conflict Management and serves as a reserve Deputy with Tazewell County Sheriff's Office in Tazewell, VA. Through his company, Indieclever Media, he creates independent short and feature film works.
I thank you for the time and consideration. I’m hoping this film, and discussion will help open up some dialogue, and minds, regarding use of force. If you choose to share, please encourage all to share with their families, in that this evening is for anyone who is interested.
