1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In late January 1989, a network news crew videotaped a Long Beach police officer apparently pushing a black man into a store window. The videotape made national headlines and raised questions about police brutality and racism in Long Beach. But the questions were nearly buried in controversy. The Long Beach Police Officers [Association] pointed out that the black man was a known crusader against police racism. The [Association] accused him and the network news crew of unfairly 'setting up' the police officers. Within days the story was dropped. News organizations throughout Los Angeles ... were distracted by the controversy, and forgot the questions it raised. KCBS ... decided the questions raised about racism and brutality had to be investigated."--1989 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt. This program includes investigations into accusations of police brutality and even murder by officers of the Long Beach Police Department. William and Pamela Powell, an African-American couple, and William and Diana Westland, a white couple, describe the beatings inflicted in separate incidents by Long Beach police upon Mr. Powell and Mr. Westland. Marshall Funkhouser recounts his calling the police to help subdue his mentally ill son, Arnold. Arnold was apparently beaten to death enroute to the police station.
