ATTICA

AtticaNo justice 'till Brooklyn.

When Al Pacino’s Sonny Wortzik walks from the bank shouting “Attica, Attica!” at the gathered throng in Sidney Lumet’s “Dog Day Afternoon,” it was powerful code that the crowd and cops understood.

Those citizens knew the atrocities committed by a racist American authoritarian militia willing to kill its own members so long as they got to savor an orgy of killing black prisoners like shooting pickles in a barrel.
