By the late 1960's, the anger in the poorer urban areas over charges of police brutality was smoldering. "A nation of law" explores the activites and deaths of Black Panther Party activists Fred Hampton and Mark Clark at the hands of Chicago police, while the deaths of both inmates and guards in quelling the prison riots at Attica prison in upstate New York symbolized for many the brutality of a hardened political regime.
