THE MAUI NEWS-
Police Without While we Wlieve the police of this County hold
Clubs record unsurpassed by the police force of any Coun
ty in the group, an innovation has Wen introduced in police methods in
Toledo, Ohio, which may well he emulated hy all police Wdies every
where with profit. The Christian Science Monitor says editorially:
Of late there have Wen numerous complaint of clubbing hy the polic'
of some eastern cities. They do things differently in the Ohio city of
Toledo. There the itolice have no clubs. The Toledo ollicers are in
structed if thev see an intoxicated man where thoy can assist him to his
home without leaving their Wat to do so rather fain to take him to the
police station. Rrand Whitloek, the mayor, was formerly a newspaper
man. When he took control at Toledo the policemen carried canes;
"Ool.len Rule" Jones had substituted these for the clubs. Mayor Whit-
lock took away the canes and sent the men out without any kind of
result nolxulv irets beaten. The jniavor says the Toledo
plan has given the policeman a new conception of their duties and im
pressed them with the fact that they are not there to hurt ieople but to
Policemen sometimes entertain incorrect ideas as to their duties. One
might infer from their actions in occasional instances that it was within
lu.ir nrovince to imnish neonle for violations of the law. Rut the stick
is not infrequently used when there is no call for it. It is the part
the policeman to guard, restrain and arrest; he has a right to use his
club only in emergencies and in self-defense. Mayor Gaynor has Wen
looking into this matter in New York, where two policemen have Wen
removed and four others were under charges of cruelty. The mayor re
marked that clubs had I men taken from the police in Inspector Byrnes'
time and he could not understand why they had Wen given back.
Tlie Toledo idea is spreading to other cities. In Detroit the traflic
squad has Wen disarmed of its cluW. The movement is in keeping with
the English theory that a policeman should control a prisoner by the
use of his hands. It might W added that persuasion will at times pre
vail where other means would W worse than useless. If more policemen
would War this in mind it would make easier their exacting task of aid
ing and maintaining the law and preserving peace.
Criminal The report of the County Attorney which appeared
Prosecutions, last week shows a record of unsurpassed efficiency on
the part of those responsible for the prosecution of those charged with
crime, and is a striking contrast to the methods employed here up to a few
In former years, it was the rule that almost any one could apply for
and receive a warrant for the arrest of any one on any charged whether
there were sufficient ground? or not.
Of course, there were many acquittals and fat fees for the attorneys.
But not all of the innocent men were acquitted, and as the attitude of
the prosecutor was strictly partisan, it is safe to say, that more innocent
men were fined or imprisoned in Hawaii than m any state or territory oi
the United States. This was especially true when the police received a
part of the fines imposed.
All of this barbaric custom is at an end. The County Attorney's office
and the Sheriff's Department now make a careful investigation of the.'charge
Wfore a warrant is issued. Not only are the witnesses for the complain
" ing witness examined, but those who might establish the innocence o;
tbe accused are examined, anil, if the officer Wlieves the accused would
not be found guilty no charge is brought.
This accounts for the high percentage of convictions and means that
innocent parties are seldom if ever subjected to the humiliation of an ar
rest and criminal prosecution.
The course is not profitable to the shyster lawyer, who profited by the
wrongful arrest and iroseeution of innocent citizens, but no reputable
attorney would want the recurrence of such conditions as once prevailed
