"An in-depth examination of Johnstown, Pa., Police Department, including drug abuse by officers, payroll records, morale issues, claims of police brutality and racial profiling." The story centers on Robert Hayes, a 13-year-veteran of the police force who overdosed on drugs. Sources in the police department claim the police department knew of Hayes' unfit conduct but failed to investigate. A young woman, rumored to be his girlfriend, committed suicide shortly after the overdose incident.
