St. Louis Post-Dispatch reviews the scandal within the Missouri State Highway Patrol, which involved officers tapping the phone of a black patrolman for several years; once it was discovered, the two officers directly responsible for the bugging died--one by a heart attack, and another by suicide; a coverup was attempted by the patrol's officers, March 29 - 30, 1992.
