Description

The York Daily Record looks back at the race riots of 1969 and the two unsolved murders they created -- one a young black woman who made a wrong turn into a white neighborhood, the other a white police officer patrolling the streets in an armored van. In 2001, after digging into the story for a year, authorities charged 9 white men in the death of the black woman, including the city's mayor. Authorities later charged two black men in the death of the police officer. Ineptitude and wrongdoing emerged on every level -- "then and now" -- among prosecutors, police officers, judges, and others.
