Utdrag
1. Quite early in the film, there is a scene where Starr’s father teaches his children how to act if they are stopped by a police officer. What does he tell them to do?:

He tells them how to act if they were to be pulled over by the police. This is explained to be quite an important “lesson” as is easily understood later in the movie.

Part of what he explains is how they should put their hands on the dashboard of the car and stay calm, listen to the officer, and do as instructed at all times. Starr and the rest of the family take this very seriously, whilst other characters in the movie like Khalil do not.

2. At the police station, Starr gives a detailed explanation of what happened before the shooting, but then the detective shifts her focus to Khalil’s past. Why do you think she does this, and how does Starr react?:

She probably has gotten a script to follow and the reason why they would want to look at that side of the story would be because it is somewhat difficult to go against something like a police officer.

The reason for this is because he works for the people, meaning that a lot of people will take his side even if he wasn’t doing his job correctly. The media will also nearly always choose to take information like this into consideration when discussing a case.

It is clear that they are discriminating against him to some extent just by doing this. The reason for Starr’s reaction is because she is baffled by the fact that they choose to talk about Khalil selling drugs.

It simply doesn’t make sense to talk about a dead person’s drug case when they could be talking about a living man’s murder case.
