The Force Is With Him

In a department once noted for its cruelty toward the homeless, Santa Ana cop Randy Beckx produced a revolution

Inside another folder was a photograph of a homeless woman who didn't make it. Monica Williams, who went by the nickname "Indiana," lived near Santa Ana's rail tracks. One day, Beckx and his partner begged her to let them take her to a hospital. She refused. In retrospect, Beckx wishes he had been more persistent. The following day, a passenger train struck her while she was pushing her shopping cart across the tracks. She died instantly.

"If I knew then what I know now," he said ruefully while gazing at her photograph, "I could have saved her life."
