This chapter deals with the selective public outcry over the use of torture in the case of Quintar South. The abuse of Quintar South was one of the few cases in which the torture practices of law enforcement officials captured the attention of the white population in the South. A reporter to the white press of Atlanta, C.E. Harrison supported directing a number of readers to speak up against police misconduct and brutality. Breaking conventional representational practices of the American Press, Atlanta Constitution and Atlanta Daily published brutal images, which showed blacks as passive victims of racial violence.
