Swastika Cartoon

April 13, 1993

Conrad's cartoon should cause readers to take the thought a couple of steps further. Whom did we hang at Nuremberg? It was the leadership, not the front-line soldiers and their sergeants.

Noticeably absent at the defendants' table at the King federal civil rights trial are the city councilmen and Bradley-appointed police commissioners of the early 1980s who forced the poor policy of using nightsticks instead of chokeholds, knowing full well that broken bones and brutal scenes of the kind seen in the King video would be the result.
