Even Hank Cousine admits that he's not the sort of fellow you would expect to find suing the Los Angeles Police Department for excessive force. On the other hand, having been labeled as one of the department's 44 "problem" officers by the Christopher Commission several years ago, perhaps he is something of an expert on the topic. "I've never been on this side of the table before," Cousine said in an interview this week, noting the irony in his status as victim and plaintiff.

Pirjo Haggman, 47, one of the first women to become an IOC member and a track champion so beloved in Finland that she has been depicted on a postage stamp, delivered her resignation to IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Somehow, somewhere along the line, connections had been frayed and confidence lost. Conceived in the ashes of Watts, this was supposed to be a municipal administration built to absorb ethnic shocks. In a city of so many colors, of so much wealth and poverty, it was expected to keep the peace. But on a single evening in late April, the flames that lighted the Los Angeles sky revealed that despite its multiracial hues, Mayor Tom Bradley's model City Hall was powerless to keep the lid on.

After flat-lining twice on the operating table, Pastor Joe Sabolick figured the worst chapter of his life was over. But when he returned to his office at Calvary Chapel of Laguna Beach a few weeks later, the locks had been changed -- and his handpicked church board, including his older brother, had fired him amid allegations that he embezzled money and was "fixated" on the wife and daughter of an assistant pastor.

The nation's home healthcare aides are not entitled to minimum wages or overtime pay under federal law, even if they work for private employers, the Supreme Court ruled Monday. The 9-0 decision, which keeps in place a long-standing rule that denies minimum wages and overtime pay to those who provide "companionship services" at home, could trigger a move in Congress to amend the law.

From the eager anticipation and lively conversations emanating from the crowd in Anaheim's Marriott Hotel ballroom, it seemed like a rock star was en route. But when a side door opened, controversial TV real estate investment adviser Tom Vu bounded toward the podium. "Hi! You ready to make big money?" Vu, 34, asked as the crowd of about 1,000 people leapt to their feet in applause. "Motivating folks is in my blood. You wanna be rich don't you? Well if you make no money with me, you a loser!"

A Torrance gynecologist faces a disciplinary hearing because he allegedly used a sexually stimulating massage to treat a woman's ovarian cysts. An accusation filed by the state attorney general's office against Hector H. Arnazzi, 40, charges the doctor with gross negligence for using "a method which more closely resembled simulated sexual intercourse than any type of ovarian massage." John Rhode, an attorney for Arnazzi, said his client "flatly denies" any sexual misconduct.

Shirley Cabey saved all the letters--the ones that called her son a "nigger," that wished the boy had died, that threatened his life if he survived the gunshot that sliced through his spine. Each note, with its ugly words and racial venom, sits pressed today inside the Cabey family's Bible. The Good Book, like Shirley and her son Darrell, remains where it was when the letters arrived 10 years ago--in an apartment in a South Bronx housing project.
