Charging laxity on the part of f
the officials of the Metropolitan
Police Department in the handling?
of traffic violators, and urging j
Commissioner Oyster to better enforce
the laws were made Friday |
by Judge John I\ McMahon. of the
District Police Court, in a reply!
to Commissioner Oyster's recent declaration
that the police were not
rt-ceiYing the proper co-operation
from the court. Judge McMahfa
asks the Commissioner why some
effort is not being made to bring
the violators to court, either by
Increasing the amount of reqijired
collateral, or by other means.
Judge McMahon explains that of
the 1,439 speeders arrested Vf the
police during May and June, only
67, or less than 5 per cent, appeared
In commenting on the failure of
the other 1,372 speeders to appear
before the Police Court, Judge McMahon
says:* "The only plausible
reason I can assign is that they
deem it more advisable to forfeit
the cash collaterals which they deposited
tft the various police stations
to which they were taken or
to which they were directed to report
by the arresting officer."
Should Deposit More.
After suggesting that the collateral
demanded from traffic offenders
be substantially increased,
Judge McMahon calls to the attention
of Commissioner Oyster that
the Commissioner has the right to
pursue the offenders who forfeit
their Collaterals further, by requesting
the corporation counsel to
apply to the Police Court judges
for writs of attachment* which
would compel their appearance in^
court for trial.
Judge McMahon cites the present
law, which provides a fine of from
$5 to $50 for the first offense; a fine
of fro m$10 to $100 or imprisonment
of from five days to thirty
days on conviction of the second
offense within one year from the
commission of the first offense, and
a fine of from $50 to $250 and imprisonment
in the workhouse for
from thirty days to six months,
upon conviction for the third offense
within a year* from comrais-,
slon of, the first offense.
Text of Letter.
The judge's response to Commissioner
"On July 12, 1921, The Washington
Herald published an article on
traffic conditions in the District of
Columbia, setting for*h a letter
written by Commissioner James F.
Oyster to Senator Underwood, of
Alabama, lit which it is stated that
In the months of May and June,
1921, 4,702 offenders against the
traffic laws were arrested. 1,439 of
them being speeders. Commissioner
Oyster charges in his letter
that the Police Court has failed to
support the Commissioners in their
efforts to clean up traffic conditions,
and that the action of the Police
Court is very discouraging to him
because his men are held all day in
court and deprived of their rest,
and that these thousands of
offenders against tho traffic laws
are partly encouraged by the small
penalties imposed upon them and
by the consideration they receive
"The effect of Commissioner Oyster's
letter, whether so Intended or
not, was to create the impression
that the police department, in an
effort to clean up traffic conditions
and put a stop to the reckless driv-^
ing which has been indulged in for
so long a time upon our streets,
acting under the orders and direc*
tions of Commissioner Oyster, has
been waging a war upon traffic violators:
that during the months of
May and June they arrested almost
1,000 of these offenders. 1,4*9 of
whom were speeders, and vigorously
prosecuted them in the Police Court,
and that Commissioner Oyster's offorts
were rewarded by having the
Police Court judges keep his men
all day in court, and that the judges
imposed such small penalties upon
Jhese flagrant violators of the law
and extended them such consideration
in cburt that they were partly
encouraged in tHeir disregard for
? ? ' and that the lce Court
judges are, therefore, responsible
for the oonditiona existing from

Traffic cases are tried in the District
of Columbia branch of the
Police Court. As I was prseiding in
this court all during the month of
May and a portion of the month of
June I addressed a letter to Com- ,
missioner Oyster on July 13 1921.
asking if he was correctly quoted
Id the above-mentioned article and
requesting that he furnish me wftli
any facts within his knowledge
which would support the charge#
containled in his letter to Senator
Underwood. Commissioner Oyster
admits that he was correctly quoted
but his letter to me i? very unsatisfactory
in that it contains suggestions
and not facts. I, therefore,
deem it nt and proper that
the public be advised as to the real
facts connected with the arrests of
the 1,439 speeders taken Into custody
by Commissioner Oyster's j
! men during the months of May and
June, in order that the public may
decide where the responsibility lies.
"I shall confine my discussion to
these speed cases because In the
limited time at my disposal I have
not had an opportunity to check up
on the Police Court dockets the
cases other than speed cases spoken
of by Commissioner Oyster.
Fire Per Cent Come ?o Court.
"An examination of the public
records of the Police Court discloses
that of the 1.439 arrests for
speeding, which Commissioner Oyster
states were made by his men
in the months of May and June,
only 67 of these offenders, or les?
than 5 per cent, actually came before
the Police Cpurt Judges for
trial, and the penalties Imposed in
these 67 cases are open to the Inspection
of the general public.
What became of the remaining 1.37S
speeders against whom Commissioner
Oyster and his men directed
such a vigorous campaign to teach
them to respect the law? They did
not appear in court for trial and
Commissioner Oyster's m?<n certainly
were not held all day in court
and deprived of their rest In prosecuting
Why did these 1,372 speeders remain
away from court? Commissioner
Oyster may be able to answ-*
this question, but the only plausible
reason I can assign Is that thay
deemed It more advisable to forfeit
'the cash collaterals which they deposited
at the various police stations
to which they were taken or
to which they were directed to report
by the arresting officers. Here
the question naturally arises, "who
fixed the amounts of the cash collaterals
deposited in these cases?"
They were fixed by the Police Department
under and by virtue of
the authority conferred by section
48 of the code of laws for the District
of Columbia, which provides
that every person charged with an
offense triable in the Police Court
may give securitp for his appearand
for trial by depositing money
as collateral security with the station
keeper of the police precinct
within which such person may be
apprehended. The purpose of this
law being that persons charged
with offenses triable in the PMIce
Court may give cash security for
their appearance in court for trial,
why is It that the Police eDnartment.
which Is under the direct supervision
of Commissioner Oyster,
did not reuire these 1.J72 speders
to deposit rash collaterals* sufficient
in amount to ccuye their appearance
in court for trial?
l*ft <o Oim?' Dlwrellm.
."Another question here arises and
that Is whether or not there Is any
official of the Police Department
charged with the duty of determining
the amounts of cash collaterals
demanded of these 1,371 speeders
who failed to appear in court. Cm*
would naturally suppose that Commissioner
Oyster, who has super- i
vision of the Police Department,
being so determined to cleaii up
traffic conditions, would see to It
that these offenders were .required
to deposit a sufficient amount of
cash collateral to secure their appearance
In court. So far as 1 am
aware there Is no official of the Police
Department charged with this
uly. nor aire there rule? 0r regulaons
governing these speed esses.
ut the matter seems to be left enrely
to the discretion of the arjsting
officer or the station keeper
r the various police stations.
"My understanding Is that when
cltisen is arrested and hss a
barge of Intoxication lodged
jainst him, no matter what the deree
of intoxication may be, every
taflon house In the District of Coimtla
has orders to demand a
ilnimum cash collateral of $2S as
scurlty for the appearance of the
Itlsen in couri for trial and If ttie
Itixen Is unabll 'to produce this
mount, he Is held In custody In the
ollce Htation until he Is sent to
ourt for trial. Which Is the
reater menace to the community,
fie intoxicated citisen or the oprator
of art automobtH who speeds
[trough our streets at all hours of
He day and night In such reckless
irtfiner as to jeopardise the Uvea
hd limbe of men, women al^d chllren?
"If of the 1,439 speeders arretted
uring the months of May and June,
nly 67 appeared in court for trial,
'hy haa the Police Department,
rhich la under the supervision of
ommiaaioncr Oyster, permitted the
rreating' officer or station keepra,
to exercise their dlacretion-in
Ma class of ra*^ aa to what
mounts of collaterala shall be deoalted

while in cases of Intoxicated
itiscHs the arresting officers, or
La t ion keepers, are not only not
ermitted to exercise any dlacreion
whatever, but specific orders
ave been iasued' to all police ataiona
that a cash collateral of 925
:i each case shall be demanded?
MIf Commissioner Oyster's men
rreated 1,439 apeeders in the montha
f May and June, and 1,372 of these
ffonders failed to appear In court
i?r trial because they were not reuired
at the time of their arrests
0 deposit sufficient money as coliteral
security for their sppearance ,

lyater pursue them further, aa he '

pply to the police oourt judges to
?atie writs of attachment for theae
.372 vlolsters of the law, which
kould have compelled their appear- '
.nee In court for trial.
"If thia courae had been followed

A Matter sf Record.
"Commissioner Oyster's letter to.
Senator Underwood Indicates that
voluminous records are being kept
jy the Police Department, containng
a the number of arrests for
traffic violations made from day
0 day and the particular regulaions
violated. I assume these
'ecords also contain the names of
the offenders and* show whether or
not they have previously been convicted
of violating the speed law.
[f this be so. and Commissioner
3yster will compel the appearance
In court for trial of all offenders
Mtainst the speed laws and direct
tils men to (lie charges of second
ind third offenses of speeding where
the records show prior conviction
r>r convictions. 1 Incline to think
that the speeding of automobiles
aver our streets would shortly be
1 thing of the past.
"If it be that the records of the
Police Department do not contain
the names of traffic violators and do
riot sho whether or not they have
[*rcviout!y been convicted of speeding,
U would be a very easy matter
for Commissioner Oyster'* not,
either directly or through the corporation
counsel, to obtain these
facts from the dockets of the Police
L'ourt. It is not the duty of the
judges to prepare and file charges
against violators of the traffic lawn.
