219: High Speed Chase


Host Ira Glass talks to Cory Simmons and Dominique Mapp, who were driving home one night and were followed by a group of rowdy men in an SUV. The men tailed them for miles and then started firing a gun at them. When Cory and Dominique finally made it to a police station, it turned out that the men in the car were all drunk, white, off-duty policemen. Cory and Dominique are black. When the case came to trial, the cops weren't convicted of anything—not assault, not attempted murder, not even disorderly conduct. (9 minutes)
