A righteous cop silenced

On this week's episode of This American Life is the harrowing, deeply disquieting story of Adrian  Schoolcraft, a NYC cop who secretly recorded his supervisors instructing him to manipulate crime statistics and make illegal arrests.  When his secret came out, his supervisors labelled him mentally ill and had him involuntarily committed.   The audio is here; Schoolcraft's story begins at around 17 minutes in.  The Village Voice investigative report that broke the story is here.
