degree any of these men I will take
steps not usually attempted in reply
to police third degree work," said
Cunnea. "I was told by Iieut Mike
Loftis of the 33d precinct that the
prisoners who are supposed to be
witnesses of the Guszkowski killing
would be at the inquest The police
failed to bring them.
"It is contrary to everything in
law and it is against every principle
of personal liberty for the police to
refuse an arrested man the right of
an interview with his attorney."
