"The enemy: rising crime in urban America, coupled with police brutality and corruption. The man with answer: a former Robert F. Kennedy aide who had turned crime crusader. Eventually heeding the constant lobbying of Adam Walinsky, Congress finally created the Police Corps training program to create an elite generation of sophisticated, college-educated officers. But with lax oversight at the U.S. Department of Justice, state and federal program administrators relied on Walinsky for guidance. The result: a rogue program that after $54 million had put only 246 cops on the street. What's more, Walinsky's influence took a controversial path of militaristic, boot-vamp style of training, including sleep deprivation, Hell Week endurance tests and live-fire over cadets' heads."
