CAPT. WESTBROOK SAYS ALL
PETTY GRAFT MUST GO
For the past week Capt Wesley
Westbrook has been walking around
the Maxwell sL police station with
his nose in the air and his 6ar to the
ground. He was only transferred
there last Saturday.
This morning he asked Chief
Healey for some policemen he could
trust to stop the petty grafts which
are going on around the station.
According to the captain, shyster
lawyers, professional fixers and shark
bondsmen make the station an un
safe place for the ignorant and un
educated poor who live in the dis
trict Shortly after a prisoner is put in
a cell he has a caller. The caller is
usually a bondsman or a lawyer.
"They scare the life out of him
also about $20," said Westbrook.
"And when his case is called in court
he is discharged on the trivial of
fense usually placed against him."
Hereafter no attorneys, bondsmen
or fixers will be allowed to infest the
station, says Capt. Westbrook.
The conditions surrounding the
Maxwell st station may be found in
other1 stations where court is held.
The East Chicago, Hyde Park, Stock
yards and Desplaines street stations
measure up to the standard set by the
present Maxwell st. station.
