Interview with Herb Boyd
QUESTION 7
SAM POLLARD:

Herb include the big four.

HERB BOYD:

Yes the big the big four was what we recognize as being symbolic of the real terror in the intimidating aspects of the police department that would later on be followed up by the invasion of all of these uniformed officers. You see the big four was just one uniform cop in a car with three other plain clothes cops. They had a reputation of taking no crap from nobody. And when you said the big four was in the neighborhood everybody froze. Things were cooled out completely. They were like a harbinger of the kind of Garrison city occupied army that would take place later on in the middle sixties right down to the rebellion of '67.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, cut. We're going to try and do it again. One more time. Lets take a deep breath.
