About The Book
Chicana culture/politics. On March 23, 1979, journalist Roberto Rodriguez was taking photographs of Rasa cruising on Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles. Among the scenes he was recording was the senseless beating of an innocent and defenseless man by members of the sheriff’s department. These officers then turned on Rodriguez, confiscated his camera and film and beat him so badly that he spent three days in the Los Angeles County Hospital. He was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and assault and battery on a peace officer. This work details Rodriguez’s struggle to come to terms with the traumatic experience and to bring a civil suit against the officers involved. Combining material written before and after the trial, “Justice: A Question of Race” is an indictment of a society that sanctions police brutality against minorities and a testament to human courage and perseverance in the pursuit of justice.
