Hold Your Fire

.

In 1973 Brooklyn, Shu’aib Raheem and three other young African-American men stealing guns for self-defense were cornered for 47 hours by the NYPD, the longest siege in its history. Could visionary police psychologist Harvey Schlossberg convince his superiors to do the unthinkable – negotiate with “criminals” – and save a dozen hostages from a violent bloodbath? In never-before-seen film and eye-opening interviews, HOLD YOUR FIRE has the potential to revolutionize American policing, saving lives using words, not guns.
