Description

The series exposed a shocking pattern of injustice in law enforcement's pursuit of drug crimes in Massachusetts. It revealed that hundreds of first time drug offenders routinely get much longer prisoner terms than do violent criminals, who have actually had their typical sentences reduced in the past te years to make jail space available for lower level inmates. It also disclosed that drug dealers are able to buy their way out of long mandatory terms. (Sept. 24 - 27, 1995) Supplemental information includes police stealing drug money from crime scenes. (Feb. 10, 17, 1996)
