Mike Capps delivers an update in the federal trial of Walter Plaster and John Stephen White, two former Houston police officers accused of violating the civil rights of Billy Keith Joyvies. On July 11, 1975, Plaster and White responded to a report that Joyvies had stolen a toolbox from a parked truck. Following a 30-mile, high-speed chase, the officers fatally shot Joyvies. Prosecutors argued that Plaster and White planted a gun in Joyvies' car to justify the shooting and make it appear as if he were armed and had fired at police. An internal police investigation traced the gun found in Joyvies's car to an officer who had earlier been killed in the line of duty. Judge John Singleton condemned the actions of Plaster and White as "improper and shocking," but acquitted the defendants on July 25, 1979, ruling that the government failed to prove specific intent.
