Residents are hostile to the police initially. When one bereaved mother tells Russert that she had called 911 and half an hour passed before help arrived, they find there was a beat cop just a few blocks away. He admits he waited because he was in fear of his safety. Internal Affairs gets involved when the autopsy shows one of the boys bled to death over a period of about 20 minutes. Lewis and Kellerman are alienated over the racial issues. Written by jeaneva See less
