Description

CBS News 60 minutes reports on the tragedy of lieutenant Joe Stenukinis who "investigated some of the most notorious cases of police and municipal corruption" in Edison, New Jersey. The report describes how the lieutenant's "efforts to expose widespread corruption came back to haunt him one night when his stepdaughter was assaulted, and his daughter was arrested at the scene." The story uncovers the report of an investigator for the prosecutor's office, who "concluded that an Edison police officer had committed the assault." The story questions the decision of a grand jury which has exonerated the alleged retaliator, but has found the lieutenant and his family guilty.
