Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated at the age of thirty-nine on April 4, 1968 at 6:01 p.m.
Rookie Cop Marvin Levey had his whole life-changing experience with only one day on the job as a New York City police officer. When crowds of over one hundred thousand rioters overwhelmed the police force. New York City had no choice; they needed every able body police officer to maintain law and order. They needed much more law enforcement. That meant that the April 3, 1968 police academy class was ordered out on the means streets of New York City to quell riots, make arrests, and literally fight for their lives without any police training.
