Behind The Blue Wall

New York City has enjoyed drastically reduced crime rates in the past decade. But there are those who say that this has come at a cost--that the police department is out of control. And a number of recent, high-profile cases lend credence to that claim. INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS uses one such incident--the brutal assault on Abner Louima--as a springboard to examine the often tenuous relationship between the police and the communities they serve in America today. BEHIND THE BLUE WALL follows the Louima story from its break on the national newsfront through the federal government's trial against the officers charged with violating Louima's civil rights. We'll also look at the case of Amadou Diallo, an unarmed African immigrant gunned down by four members of an elite NYPD squad. Among those interviewed are New York City Police Commissioner Howard Safir and Alton White, a victim of police misconduct. From New York's streets to the sense of outrage spreading across the nation, this is an unflinching look at police brutality today.
