In the 1960s in Harlem, NYC street crime on all levels were rampant. To most of the city's 2 million blacks and Histpanics, conditions were worse than ever. They existed due to white racism over the years that was entangled with political and social greed. The political powers were to hold a meeting in city hall. Included in this meetings were the mayor, police commissioner, and the then congressman of Harlem. As a result of that unprecedented meeting, they reached out for volunteers from very young black and Hispanic officers in search of motivated, dedicated, committed, aggressive, and fearless officers, letting them be aware that there will be a high probability that some may be killed due to their all-out approach in eliminating gun runners and street narcotics conditions. Of 383 volunteered, 20 were handpicked and called the New York City Police Department PEP Squad. Bennett Hinds was one of the members of this elite group. Three were killed and one crippled for life. None of the 17 survivors were ever promoted. The validity of many events can be verified by the NYPD operational files as well as the New York Daily NEWS, New York Amsterdam News, and Channel 7 Eyewitness news.
