AFTER KILLING BOY
Moved by Thought of Ow n
Son, Manahan Quits Force
For nine hours, until '.' o'clock this
morning, a Jury wrestled uitli tho
problem of the guilt or Innocence of
Orrln L. Munahan, pollccmun, and
reached a verdict of not guilty.
Hut for almost four months Mana
han himself had wrestled with the
same problem, and he too had
reached a verdict which was not
that of tho Jury. He pronounced a
sentence upon h'mself this morning
before Justice Cropsey In the Hu
preme Court, Brooklyn, after the
other verdict had bren read.
Manahan shot and killed a boy.
Frank Varley. seventeen yeurs olJ. of
No. 770 Franklin Avenue, lust July,
and he answered lo a charge of homi
cide. "There was a crap game." Manahan
suid on the witness tand. "It was '
my duty to atop It. I went toward a)
group of boys in a vacant lot, They
ran and I chased liiein. I had n.y
revolver In my hand and when I 1
tumbled over the rough ground I j
must have pulled the trigger, thoiiifh
I didn't mean to. The bullet killed ,
the boy. It was an accident."
There was a hard look In the face
Of Manahan when the verdict of not
t)ullty was read, and It was a look
that Justice Cropsey mlsreud. He de
cided to aupplemoni the verdict with
a reprimand, Calling Manahun before
him, the Justice said : a
"Let tins be a lesson to you to be
more careful with your revolve:."
Manahan replied simply: " I shall
never carry a revolver again "
"Bui," said .luetics Cropsey, "the
rules of the Police Department com
pel you to carry one."
Thon Manahan delivered his own
"I am not going back to the Police
Department," he said. "I havo a son.
He Is of the age of the Varley boy."
