Riotsville

By David Swanson https://davidswanson.org/riotsville/ A preview of the film “Riotsville” is here. There’s a good review of the film here, and another here. In the late 1960s, the U.S. military built a fake town called Riotsville (or a fake “inner city” actually) on the Fort Belvoir base in Virginia, and then another at Fort Gordon in Georgia — the same state where the Atlanta police are now working on the construction of an enlarged, updated, high-tech Riotsville commonly called “Cop City.”
