May 12, 1993 | RHONDA HILLBERY, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
One night last September, Minneapolis traffic cop Jerome Haaf, 53, sat completing some paperwork and reading a newspaper at the Pizza Shack, a well-known police hangout in the south part of town. About 1:45 a.m, two men entered the restaurant and shot Haaf in the back. He died a few hours later. Beginning as early as today, prosecutors will present a case charging that Haaf was assassinated by members of the Vice Lords street gang in an act of retribution against police in general.

Hundreds of people burned temporary housing and overturned cars Saturday in a protest against the hiring of non-union construction labor at a Boise Cascade paper mill. Gov. Rudy Perpich put the National Guard on alert for possible duty in the usually peaceful town on the Canadian border. But the crowd, estimated at 400 in the morning, dwindled by afternoon and city officials said the violence had ended.

The black man had a gun. No, he didn't have a gun. He was shot in the chest. He was shot in the back. He was trying to escape. He was going to shoot. All that is known for sure is that the black man is dead, shot--it is now clear, in the back--by a white policeman. It is a street-corner tableau played out with chilling frequency in city after city, often with the predictable results: controversy, protests, calls for investigations.
