Probing Police Brutality in Argentina
Robert Manzanares spent an eye-opening summer in Argentina last year. In a country where brutal repression, storm trooper tactics, and whitewashing investigations were once common practice, Robert was on hand to witness a major breakthrough in the government response to police wrongdoing.

The government acknowledged blame in the death of a young bystander in a police shootout with robbers. The confession led to hearings on reparations before a three-judge panel.

"That was the first time that kind of arbitration ever happened in the country, so I was pretty honored to be there," says Robert. "It was quite the learning experience."
