The New Times investigates corruption in the Los Angeles Police Department Rampart CRASH unit, a special, anti-gang task force. In 1995, "one of the CRASH cops had his tires slashed and the entire anti-gang unit went on a rampage in the neighborhood trying to find out who vandalized the car. Numerous gang members were beaten up and then stripped. Two of those gang members who were assaulted filed a formal complaint against the cops involved. The first story uncovered how Rampart CRASH cops had one of the complainants deported and appeared to have planted a drug case on another in order to get rid of the victims. "
