In 1989, after nearly three years of working undercover in the shadowy world of junkies and drug dealers, Chula Vista Police Officer George Hart found himself in the middle of a drug cop's darkest nightmare: He was addicted to rock cocaine. For Hart, a 16-year police veteran, the addiction was insatiable. Another narcotics officer said Hart routinely carried a glass pipe and up to 50 screen filters, which were used to hold a lighted "rock," and smoked crack while on duty.

Dr. George Hart is a retired Navy physician who makes his living operating on people's hearts and lungs. Twelve years ago, as he lay in the emergency room at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center after suffering a heart attack while driving to work, the cardiovascular surgeon took his treatment into his own hands. He ordered his nurse to put him in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber--the kind used to treat deep sea divers who suffer from decompression illness, known as "the bends."

March 2, 2003 | Richard A. Serrano is a Times staff writer. He last wrote for the magazine about U.S. government mistreatment of mothers of black servicemen killed in World War I.
Finally released after spending half of his life in prison, and still he had to wait. So Christopher Boyce hung around the prison parking lot, rubbernecking, taking in the fresh air around Sheridan, Ore., unsure what to make of freedom. A half hour went by before the big Suburban at last came lumbering up the driveway, carrying his father, a former FBI agent, and his mother, once a Catholic nun.

December 1, 1989 | From Times Staff and Wire Reports
Oakland Police Chief George Hart promised a full investigation after a swastika and the letters "KKK" were found painted on a garage door at the headquarters of the Oakland Black Firefighters Assn. Officials said the graffiti may have been connected to the upcoming training of the first group of firefighters recruited under a 1985 court order requiring the adoption of equal-opportunity hiring procedures.

The Police Department should have investigated 90% of the sexual assault reports it ignored in 1989 and 1990, an internal investigation has concluded. Since reopening the reports, police have gathered enough new evidence to arrest one man, present two cases to the district attorney and prosecute another man on an unrelated charge, the department said. "The fault was ours--it's that simple," Oakland Police Chief George Hart said. He will present the results to the City Council.

Oakland Police Chief George Hart said he will ask the city for $8 million to hire 99 more police officers to help combat drug-related crimes. The chief told the Oakland Tribune that the federal government must start imposing economic sanctions on drug-producing foreign countries in order for the United States to win the war against drugs. He also said putting more officers on the street would be only a temporary relief, unless community and family morals were strengthened.
