Show Summary Details


The scene at 248 Fourth Avenue was an ordinary one where the crisis seemed to extend for hours. The cops on the scene were busy working sniper details, searching for other terrorist suspects, evacuating buildings, and dealing with possible bombs. The interrogation that deputy inspector Francis Clinton conducted of Ryan and Dolan was a GO-15. This refers to general order 15, a section in the old Patrol Guide, which stipulates the rights of police officers questioned in departmental proceedings. The author of this book visited the Methodist Hospital to try to gain an understanding of the layout and atmosphere in the waiting room at the same time of day that Ryan and Dolan were there and toured the 8-8 Precinct around the same time of day as the debriefing occurred to reconstruct relevant scenes. Records indicate that the majority of arrests in the Crown Heights riots were made in Brooklyn North by other commanders at the scene.
