White Boy Rick – Official Trailer

Even with revitalization underway, there is no denying that parts of Detroit still show the remanence of a time when drug kingpins and gangsters ruled swaths of the Motor City. Of all the stories of the past, one story continues to make headlines every few years. The story of White Boy Rick is a complicated one, his entangled relationships with gangs, drug dealers, and the FBI leave some to think that he knows too much to be back amongst the general population. He received a life sentence for drug possession at just 17 years old – after assisting the FBI from the age of 14 as an informant. While the new movie might help with some speculations, it may also divide many on one of Detroit’s long-kept secrets – the incarceration of Richard Wershe Jr.
