Sales of Ice-T's "Body Count" album surged dramatically last week in Texas and Southern California after law enforcement agencies and political candidates in those areas called for a ban of the rapper's controversial "Cop Killer" song. Ice-T's sales jumped an estimated 60% in Los Angeles, where Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores and the Los Angeles Police Protective League had urged Time Warner, the distributor, to stop selling the album.

It's not an easy situation to evaluate: A junkie is arrested, tossed into jail and then begins complaining about the physical pain of heroin withdrawal. They can experience nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, even violent convulsions. The nurse or doctor on duty must determine whether the prisoner should be given medical treatment, transferred to the medical ward or whether they can be left to endure their withdrawal in their cell.

Re "I'd Done Nothing Wrong and Yet I Felt Criminal" (Aug. 13): I understand Rhonda McClain's anger at being searched by Drug Enforcement Administration agents at LAX. In 1986, I was detained in the Fort Lauderdale [Fla.] airport by two local undercover narcotics agents. In full view of other passengers, my baggage was searched and I was patted down. McClain's article implies that race was the reason she was stopped and searched. While this is certainly possible, my experience indicates other factors predominate.
