Former L.A. Police Chief Daryl Gates and the author of the landmark book PRINCE OF THE CITY share their thoughts in this expose of corruption and crime among police.
They are charged with protecting society and preventing crime. But what happens when cops turn bad? And what happens when corruption and criminality among the police becomes endemic?
AMERICAN JUSTICE® tackles this difficult issue with help from numerous experts, including prosecutors in police brutality and corruption cases, former L.A. Police Chief Daryl Gates and Bob Leuci, author of Prince of the City. Chronicling some of the most famous of all these controversial cases, including the Rodney King beating trial and the corruption cases that resulted from Frank Serpico's investigations in New York City, COPS ON TRIAL shows that justice does indeed work differently when the ""boys in blue"" are involved. But what is the best way to proceed in these tricky, charged situations? Legal experts debate that and other issues in this gripping program.
COPS ON TRIAL is a must-see for anyone interested in justice in America.
