How did I miss this dead-on column?!
Truth, Bound And Gagged by Jimmy Breslin
You have a black man in Brooklyn sodomized with a broken broomstick by white police while handcuffed in the rear. The case should be tried 35 times if you have to.
What happened on Saturday night was that a new United States attorney in Brooklyn, Roslynn R. Mauskopf, a white, right-wing Republican whose background suggests a house closing in Troy, either used her own prejudice or took directions from above to settle the case.
Deny it if you can.
