Documentary: Church of Felons

This is a good documentary on the drug crisis in rural America– specifically a particular county in Ohio. It explores the history and current situation of four addicts struggling to stay clean, the role of the criminal justice system, and responses of the victims– one of whom opposes incarceration because “jail is too easy” and offenders should have to live in the world knowing what they’ve done. At the center of the documentary is a church who welcomes the broken and seeks change.

While short on solutions and occasionally playing on emotion, this documentary is well worth watching. It’s available on Amazon Prime.
