Description

This file contains the results of five years of coverage reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune on the story of the convictions in a cop killing trial. "Even as gang members were being sentenced for killing a police office, Hasemyer and Cantlupe were raising questions about how authorities won those convictions...Their 1994 articles,"Pursuit of Justice," suggested the case against the gang members was marred by the questionable conduct of authorities who rushed to justice at the expense of constitutionally guaranteed rights to a fair trial... In March 1997 they revealed prosecutors gave extraordinary privileges to the key informant and witness against the convicted gang members... In a June 1997 series, "An Informant's Story," Cantlupe and Hasemyer went on to explain the significance of the informant's role in convicting the gang members three years earlier... In March 1998 ..."Secret Allies"..a series that revealed that in their zeal to fight crime, police and prosecutors not only bent, broke and ignored their own policies but also broke the law."
