J The report suggests the ';" officers could be charged with a variety of crimes, in-: eluding kidnaping, extor- tion, robbery, rape and com-, mitting Unnatural sexual r acts.

The sources "said the officers then would release white prostitutes in seclud-, ed spots downtown but take-; black prostitutes to all-, white South Boston, put them out of the car and. honk to draw attention to '' the women.

The first two officers are known in the district as the "Golden Boys" the report says, because they "could do no wrong as far as the (area) deputy is concerned." The "Golden Boys" also are alleged to have taken part in the beating Of a patron o a gay bar, Jacques Lounge in the Bay Village, and in the beating of a passive drunk on Tremont street. According to the report, the "Golden Boys" have a district-wide reputation for brutality. j The report continues: "We have given much consideration to the illicit activities of the aforementioned two officers because of strong suspicions that an undetermined number of other police officers assigned to District 1 were and still are Similarly engaged in such practices. . . . "More pertinent to this report is the allegation that most police officers assigned to District 1 . . . had knowledge of such practices and did not report such practices to anyone in the departmental internal control units." ; i 1 The report states further 'that the "Golden Boys" appear to be most familiar with prostitutes working in .'.the Park8 Square area of the '.Combat Zone. Such officers "were observed in a marked police vehicle laughing and joking with known or suspected prostitutes who were standing or walking on the sidewalk."
