Description

Marvin Booker, a homeless street preacher, while being booked into the Denver Detention Center, was beaten to death by five jail guards. The event was caught on tape, and witnessed by more than 20 people. Yet, the city of Denver never indicted, nor reprimanded any of the deputies involved. Because the Booker family never settled with city administrators, the case found its way to a stunning federal civil trial. The case of Marvin Booker vs. the City of Denver, reveals how a City participated in a cover-up in which it failed to properly investigate those involved, and chose to protect The Thin Blue Line, instead of a citizen's constitutional rights.
