Description

Illinois Times profiles Renatta Frazier, an African American police officer, who was accused of failing to prevent the rape of a white woman, daughter of a fellow officer, by several black men. "The Springfield Police Department drove Renatta Frazier off the force, and never let the truth get in the way," Rhodes writes. The story reveals that Frazier, who was accused of mishandling the 911 call about the rape, could not have prevented it, as the rape had already occurred.
