POLICEMEN AND TH.E LAW
Judge Sullivan of the Superior
Court gave some good advice to a
policeman when he said:
"A policeman should obey the law
before expecting anybody else to.
This is a nation of laws, not of men.
A police officer has no right to arrest
a man and cart him around at his
own sweet will, neither is it right
to keep a man, without booking him.
I have found in my experience that is
why we do not get convictions in the
criminal court. The average jury is
in favor of a square deal, and if the
policeman refuses to give it, no mat
ter what the crime is, they will."
All of which speaks well for juries.
And it would be a good thing if all
judges would insist on-olicemen
obeying the law. It is a commpn oc
currence in Chicago for people to be
arrested without warrant and locked
up without booking.
But how about the policeman who
shoots a man who runs away from
A policeman may arrest a man for
an offense that at worst is punishable
only by imprisonment, yet if the
prisoner attempts to run away the
cop may pull out his gun and kill the
In that way the cop imposes a
death sentence when the law imposes
only imprisonment; and the only
"crime the prisoner is committing
is in trying to escape. That isn't an
offense punishable by death, and the
policeman should not be permitted to
take life except in defense of his own.
A night school for the education of
policemen in their rights and duties
under the law might be a good thing
for both policemen and the public.
