A long-established community anti-crime group in Kansas City, spawned by concern over alleged police indifference to the black community, finds police allies in its efforts to shut down "crack houses." But can the Ad Hoc Group Against Crime maintain its independence--and credibility--by working with the authorities? This case examines the relationship between government and community organizations in the context of the anti-drug effort.
