The "blue wall" of silence surrounding New York police brutality allegations is starting to give way, a prosecutor said. Queens Dist. Atty. John Santucci said that he intends to bring allegations of police brutality before a grand jury Tuesday. He said he hopes to get more police officers to cooperate, but added: "I believe I have enough (evidence) to go now." Four officers in the 106th Precinct in Queens were arrested and a fifth was suspended after four men complained that they had been beaten and tortured by officers.
