Description

Reporter Carl Prine "uncovered corrupt city scheme to seize property owned by mostly poor, elderly African-Americans in the hardscrabble Hill District and give it to private developers. Key findings include: The city hypocritically owns nearly a dozen drug dens, gang lairs and houses of prostitution in the neighborhood, buildings that became crime magnets after they were acquired, not before." - excerpt from IRE Contest entry questionnaire.
