IOKI, Harry Truman
(21 Jump Street)
Harry Truman "H.T." Ioki is a young Japanese-American police officer (with
erratic driving skills) who was assigned to an elite squad of baby-faced cops
posing as high school students to battle juvenile crime. (A sort of Mod Squad of
the 1980's.) His parents moved to the U.S.A. after World War II. Once Ioki
commented he was "named after the guy who dropped an atom bomb on my house". He
learned to speak English by watching old Dragnet reruns and once thought a
"Stake-out" was what you did to get a "Sirloin-to-go." Later in the series
(12/20/87 episode) it was revealed that Ioki was actually a Vietnamese refugee.
