The case of Christopher Dorner has raised some questions about the LAPD and its treatment of black officers. It's a subject that Connie Rice knows very well. 

The L.A.-based civil rights attorney has represented dozens of black officers over the course of the past two decades, and she has interviewed hundreds of cops about race relations within the force.

Rice is currently the co-director of the Advancement Project, a non-profit group focused on racial justice and she's also a member of Southern California Public Radio's board.
