Not by the cops, but by their underworld rivals who abused the trust all members of society, including criminals, place in the badge and the uniform…Continue

With the McClellan hearings spearheaded by Robert Kennedy came a daily dose of shocking disclosures that organized crime had crept into the very inner circles of the labor movement.
