FIGHTING IT OUT IN BOULDER

STREET PEOPLE IN THE COLLEGE TOWN ENLIST HELP IN THEIR BATTLE AGAINST THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

"It's a patsy review board," agrees Selby. "If Koby sets up his own group and chooses to call it a civilian review panel, he can set it up any way he wants. But it's not independent."

Beckner, who helped set up the department's review panel, contends that critics already have made up their minds about it.

"It's only been in place ten months," he says. "Anyone who says it is failing loses credibility with me, because they haven't even given it a chance. From my perspective, it works quite well."

How well it works can't be determined. Police won't reveal what advice the review panel has offered to Chief Koby.
