After twenty-two years working in precincts like Fort Apache in the Bronx, I decided to write some stories that relate to my experiences in these locations. The stories are unique in that they deal with subjects and material that are not common to police procedurals. For example, "The King Cole Trio" is about three black officers working in Harlem in the '40s, '50s, and '60s. These officers were so beloved by the neighborhood for taking not only on the Mafia but also the local black gangs in the area and accomplishing such feats as preventing the assassination of Olympic champion Jesse Owens. Each of these eighteen stories has their special insights into the conditions that the police are confronted with.

More than thirty years ago, Tom Walker published Fort Apache: New Yorks Most Violent Precinct, introducing the world to the 4-1, a South Bronx precinct that was home to more murders than the entire city of San Francisco. To this day, his story about life as police lieutenant in the 4-1 precinct remains the definitive account of the vicious cycle of violence that griped urban America in the late twentieth century. The battle between criminals and law enforcement did not end in 1971, but massive controversy over the books publication precluded the release of a sequeluntil now. With Return to Fort Apache: Memoir of an NYPD Captain, Walker finally tells the rest of his fascinating life story. Return to Fort Apache was written to counter the prevailing politically correct opinion that the officers in Fort Apache used their weapons first and their wits last. In addition, Walker hopes to memorialize the courageous officers he served with in the 4-1, to remember forever their sacrifices, their courage, and their daily brushes with death and violence.

Why Blacks Fear America S Mayor

They call him "America's Mayor." But to blacks that title sugarcoats Rudy Giuliani's real reputation as one of the most racially divisive leaders in the nation. Peter Noel's book puts Giuliani's often-ignored record of oppressing the "other New York" front and center in the 2008 presidential race. Noel was a witness to "Giuliani time" in New York. As the race beat journalist for The Village Voice, he reported exclusively on the police brutality that rained down on blacks, and the denigration of black leadership by Giuliani. In this collection of his exposés, Noel provides stunning insights into the most notorious events of Giuliani's tenure, including the execution-style killing of Amadou Diallo and the sadistic torture of Abner Louima. Both men-like many black victims of Giuliani's stop-and-frisk policing-were innocent of any wrongdoing. This brutality sparked a new black activist movement. Scores, including Jesse Jackson, were arrested-and Peter Noel was there to cover it. No journalist was more insightful about the rise of Al Sharpton, Khallid Muhammad's "Million Youth March," and Giuliani's demonization of David Dinkins, the city's first black mayor. There are interviews with major political players, inside accounts of the shifting alliances and violent conflicts between ethnic groups, and a stinging critique of the white-dominated media. And then there is Peter Noel's interview with Giuliani, which took the form of a street fight in Harlem. In these eloquent, often searing pieces, written in an outraged and authentic voice, Peter Noel spoke truth to the power of an "Afriphobic" mayor. In this revealing book, he still does.
