NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)
31st July, 1966 : America is scarred with racial unrest. The streets of Chicago and New York have seen deaths and injuries as black gangs and police have clashed. Over 4,000 National Guardsmen were called into Chicago to stop a persistent sniper campaign against the police. Two black were killed, and six policemen injured. The situation in Brooklyn, New York City, has become so ugly that 1,000 more policemen have been sent in.
