When a New York senator was issued a traffic ticket by a New York City cop, his call to a top-ranking member of the NYPD for a favor started a chain of events that resulted in the horrific murder of an innocent young woman, Bliss Verdon. Police Sergeant Charles Castro was singled out to be the scapegoat in the cover-up of the NYPD's role in the events that led to the murder. But, as a tough-as-nails cop, he had other ideas and was not about to roll over for the police brass.
the revolution of the mind continues... "The stark reality is that crime happens in communities of color, About 70% to 75% of the people described as committing violent crimes — assault, robbery, shootings, grand larceny — are described as being African-American.
