Who was Bob Leuci?

Every year an average of one thousand American police officers are arrested for misconduct or corruption, and the abuse of power is a legacy that stretches back to the dawn of US policing. BLUE CODE OF SILENCE tells the true story about a crooked police officer in 1970s New York who brought down the most corrupt police unit in American history. Who was detective Bob Leuci? A whistleblower who stood up against corruption and an American hero? Or just a rat who betrayed his friends and colleagues to save his own skin?
