LOCAL HEROES: MARRIED TO JUSTICE AND EACH OTHER

WASHINGTON POST - They won a battle to have a Trinidad neighborhood police checkpoint program struck down as illegal and forced D.C. police to release thousands of documents detailing internal policies on high-speed chases, recording interrogations and other use of police powers.
