    Pam, the former prostitute that does the ride alongs is amazing, and a better co-host than Robin.

    nick broomfield is a good filmmaker but he kinda makes the films more about him than the subject matter and his conclusions and facts are extremely dubious

    That the LAPD allowed a serial killer to carry on for 22 years and not tell anyone in the community was a story I wanted to learn more about.

    We learn about the use of the slang phrase, NHI, which stands for “No Human Involved,” and which the LAPD used to describe the victims in this case. The existence of such a phrase seems like a scandal in itself. We could all easily have been born into the same circumstances as those victims. Nightmare - no way out.

    In one of the most compelling, anger-inducing documentaries of recent years, director Nick Broomfield (Biggie and Tupac) delves into the case of Lonnie Franklin, the alleged serial killer called the Grim Sleeper, who was arrested in 2010 on multiple murder charges. The film isn’t about Franklin’s guilt or innocence, but instead the community of South Central Los Angeles where the killings took place. And where for more than 20 years, the local police lacked the sense of urgency to stop it.

    Not a single person from the LAPD would speak to Broomfield for the film—which both justifies and energizes the movie’s sense of outrage—though he recalls a conversation with the lead detective on the case at the film’s Los Angeles premiere. And he gives an update on the remarkable Pam Brooks (pictured, above, with Broomfield), a woman who narrowly avoided becoming one of the Grim Sleeper’s victims.

    Tales of the Grim Sleeper premieres tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

    yeah it was good.

    I just liked the vibe of riding around South Central in their car talking to all different people. That alone was entertaining.

    Thanks for the heads up. It was very disturbing to watch his neighborhood buddies talk about trading pictures. They really opened up, and probably said too much. Pretty sure at least one of them was at least present when murders took place, if not directly responsible. They talked about witnessing having screwdrivers jammed in asses, cleaning blood, being high out of their minds. Very fucked up.

    I think I got the gist. White man is evil. Allows oppressed black man to be killed at will by serial killer. Hipster filmmaker uncovers conspiracy. White man once again proven to be the devil.

    Well a black man is the serial killer and much of the LAPD isn't white, but other than that - solid theory.

    Watched it yesterday - kinda thought it was boring. I really liked Broomfields Aileen Wournous documentaries, but this just wasn't interesting for me.

    Watched this last night finally and found it fascinating. I really liked the former hooker/crack ho who helped them track down some of the girls. It's a shame how the L.A.P.D. continue to treat hookers and addicts like they don't matter. I understand that it is a massive problem for them, but basically ignoring that a serial killer had been active for years and not warning the citizens is fucking despicable.
