The Informer

The Informer (w/t)  

Synopsis

There’s a saying in the DEA: “Good informant, good case. Bad informant, bad case. No informant, no case.” Lifting the lid on a deadly, secretive and increasingly unregulated practice, this timely feature documentary examines the growing dependence of US law enforcement on confidential informants and asks if the practice of using them is eroding American justice.

The Informer (w/t) highlights the secretive dynamics, systematic failings and deadly consequences of this clandestine practice, one which has quietly become a bedrock of law enforcement whilst claiming the lives of innocent Americans.
