A warning to some viewers, as pointed out by others who have seen this documentary. Throughout the documentary it shows DEA raids of family homes where the family dog is shot upon entry, multiple instances of it play throughout. At one point a guy in the house says “You shot my dog! why did you shoot my dog!” as the big men with guns go looking for a few baggies of weed. In most clips the dog can be heard yelping or whining as it lays on the ground.
