The Colors of Crime: St. Louis Under Siege is a documentary short about the amount of crime in the city of St. Louis and why we continue to make the top of the list every year for most dangerous cities. Are we really the most dangerous city in the U.S.? Why is it that cities like Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles have their fair share of crime but St. Louis continues to top them every year in their numbers. Current and past events dealing with this issue will be included. Interviews include law enforcement, community leaders/pastor, lawyer, criminal justice specialist, journalist, and other citizens that have something to say. With all the programs, and law enforcement in this city, why is the crime rate still on the rise and how can we fix it?
