THE READER'S DIGEST
December 22,
1967
Dear Mayor Allen:
They're called "New York's Finest," but patrollnen in New
York are paid 50 percent less than carpenters. In Chicago,
electricians earn $1.85 more than the officer on the beat.
Seattle pays cable splicers $375 a month more than patrolmen.
As Mayor, you are of course acutely aware of the deplorable
financial status of most of the nation's policemen. You
know, too, that low pay is just one of a number of problems
-- public apathy and unrealistically restrictive court decisions are others -- facing the cop on the beat. The
lowered morale that results has contributed to police shortages and soaring crime rates.
Now millions of Americans will share your concern and your
knowledge, with publication of a January Reader's Digest
article calling for hi gher salaries and increased public
support for policemen.
We are enclosing an advance copy of "Our Alarming Police
Shortage"; we'd be happy to send you additional copies on
request.
Sincerely yours,

Vice President

CIVIL DISORDERS AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL
11
by
H. T. Jen kins
Atlanta, Georgia
During the past summer 52 American cities suffered civil disorders, street
fighting and riots that caused wide spread death and injuries to
the population and the police of these cities.
Looting and burning was responsible for property damages that caused many
millions of dollars.
The local police in most of these cities kept the situation under reasonable
control and he ld property damages to a minimum , but there
were many arrests and some deaths or injuries, and damages
in a ll of these cities.
The local police in s ome of these cities failed to maintain law and order ,
and when t h,: situation had gotten out of control, it was necessacy
to call on the State Police and the National Guard to restore
or der, a nd in one city it was necessary to ca ll on the U. S. Army
to come in and restore or der.
�- 2 -
There were other cities, where the local government did not believe they
had the necessary manpower and equipment in such an uprising
to maintain law and order, and called for assistance from the
National Guard before the situation had gotten out of control.
On July 27, 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson by executive order,
appointed a National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders.
The Commission consists of eleven members - a governor, a mayor,
four members of Congress, a business man, a labor leader,
a civil rights leader, a lady and a chief of police.
Governor Otto Kerner was appointed Chairman.
Mayor John B. Lindsey was appointed Vice Chairman.
Mr. David Ginsburg was appointed Executive Director.
This State of Kentucky is well represented on the Commission by the
distinguished Secretary of Commerce, the very able and
attractive Miss Katherine G. Peden.
I am deeply grateful and very humble for the opportunity to serve on such
a distinguished commission.
The Commission held its first meeting with President Johnson at the White
House 'on July 29, 1967.
�- 3 -
After administering the oath of office, President Johns o:r~ inJormed the
Commission of the seriousness of the civil disorders that
the cities of this nation had experienced in the last two years.
This was supported by all the information and reports that the President
had received.
The President said thi s commission was to take top priority over all
other commissions and that all the facilities and personnel
of the Federal Government would be made available to assist .
. The President also said that civil disorders can be stopped -they must be stopped - and they will be stopped.
The President instructed the commission to determine -what happened -why it happened -and what must be done to prevent it from happening
again and again - and to furni s h him an interim report by March 1st, 1968
and a final report by August 1, 1968.
I left t he White House with a very strong feeling that thi s nation is
'
ext remely fo r tunate in having Lyndon B. Johnson a s Commander
in Chief during the se ve r y t r ying time s.
�- 4 -
He is a very dedicated and able man, and tough enough to do the job.
Again this belief was confirmed when President Johnson made a very
fine and timely speech to the International Association of
Chiefs of Polic e in Kansas City on Sept ember 14th.
The Commission has been meeting about two days each week in
Washington and has visited several of the cities that
suffered th e greatest damages.
Mr. Ginsburg has established a very fine organization to do the staff
work.
Most of the staff p ersonnel was drafted from other agencies.
The full commi s sion has questioned more than 100 witnesses, that
included governors, mayors, chiefs of police, r ioters,
and everyone elese concerned with civil disor ders.
The C ommission will not wait for the March deadline, but will
present an interim report to the President just as soon
as we can get it ready.
What I say to you today are my personal beliefs and does not necessarily
reflect the views of any of the people that I work for or
work with.
When some civil right leaders abandoned their non-violent approach and
became "Black Power" advocates of force and violence,
�- 5 -
most of the white population was shocked and frightened,
but this was the motive behind the Black Power movement,
to achieve their goals through fear, intimidation, and force.
It was designed for shock treatment.
Most of the Negro population did not approve or disapprove this
approach at that time, but took a "wait and see" attitude.
But, today I believe a great majority of the white and Negro population
recognizes "black power" as a reality , but believes its
strength lies at the ballot box and in the courts, and not
in the streets and alleys.
The motives supporting the black power militant movement is almost
identical to the motives supporti:1g the old Ku Klux Klan.
I believe the police have the best public support today that we have
ever had.
But let me warn you not to be deceived by this support.
The people have been frightened by civil disorders and r i ots and they
are looking to the police to stop it now.
And, if it demands - a tooth for a tooth, and
an eye for an eye -the local police must be prepared to make law and or der thel:r
first order of business.
�- 6 -
Dr. Kennet. C :.ark, author of "Dark Ghetto - - Dilemma of Social Power"
reoently said, "police brutality was not a problem, or at
least it was not a seriqus problem, the real problem," he
said, "was police \n~fficiency and police corruption."
I do not know how much of that statement is true.
It would depend on the city and ttie persons involved.
But, I do know that these are the problems that every chief of police
tn this natiott ntu~t give his immediate attention and best
efforts if we are going to accept all of our responsibility
and furnish the kihd of police service that every American
citizen has ever right to eXl'ect.
The Mayor and the Chief of Police h,as the sole respon~ibility to protect
life and p;roperty, to maintain law and order in their
respective cities.
Every city must hav~ the necessary cpmmunication and reports from all
segments of the population to determine what the problems
are, an(i when and where civ~l disorders are likely to occur.
They must have thf;! necessary equJprnent and trained personnel to solve
thes~ problems and if street fighting starts - - to move in
immediately with sufficient force to stop it before it gets out
of control.
�- 7 -
If t hey cannot do that, the mayor has t he responsibility to ask the governor
to furnish the National Guard, and if this is not sufficient, the
Governor has the responsibility to ask the President of the
United States to order the U. S. Army to come in and restore
orde;r, or even to prevent civil disorders.
Now, as I understand the laws and ordinances of the many citie s and states
in this nation, the Mayor and the Chief of Police are the
commanding officers of their re spective police dep artments,
but once the Natio:qal Guard is or dered in, the Gover nor and
the Adjutant General becomes the commanding officer of that
city or state, and once the U. S. Army is ordered in, the
highest ranktng officer designated by the President, becomes
the commandfng officer of all armed personnel in that a r ea.
The P resident of the United States is the Commander- in Chief of all ar med
per so11n.el in this nation, and that include s ever y poli ce officer
in a poli~e department.
As I also under stand the law in the var ious states, the governor might order
t he National Guar d to go into a city at the request of the mayor - or the gover nor might or der the guards to go in on hi s own
iniative and judgment.
The same thing is true of the U. S. Army .
�- 8 -
The President might order the army to go into a city or state at the
request of the governor, or the President might order the
army to restore law and order and to protect the C onstitutional Rights of American citizens in any state, with or
without a request from the governor.
The United States President has found it necessary to take such action
many times in the last 17 5 years.
I recall two such occasions very well - -
l.
President Eisenhower ordered Federal troops into Little Rock,
Arkansas, without a request from Governor Faubus.
(EXPLAIN)
2.
President Johnson ordered Federal troops into Detroit, Michigan,
last summer on the request of Governor Romney.
The U. S. Attorney General , Mr. Ramsey Clark, recently issued written
instructions to all Governors on the procedure to follow
"SHOULD A GOVERNOR FIND IT NECESSARY TO REQUEST
THE ASSISTANCE OF FEDERAL TROOPS. "
These are very important things that should be considered and included
in all police training and police planning in the next few
m onths.
Retired United States Brigadier Gene ral William R . Woodward is also
director of Atlanta's Civil Defense.
�- 9 He and General George J. Hearn, the Adjutant General of Georgia have
completed a very fine plan to coordinate the action of the
police and the National Guard if it ever becomes necessary
or desireable for the City of Atlanta to request the assistance
of the National Guard.
The National Guard is already receiving special training to control civil
disorders.
I understand that this training is very special.
Th~ Guard is told that this is not ordinary combat.
In ordinary combat everyone out in front of you is your deadly enemy,
and you shoot everything that moves.
In this kind of combat everyone out in front of you is not your enemy,
in fact, most of them are your friends.
Your only enemy is the snipers and the brick throwers, and when it is
ncessary to use firearms, you must be very careful to
shoot only your enemy.
The Atlanta Police Department continues to st:t engthen and expand its
training program, with special training for our Crime
Prevention Bureau officers and our Task Force and Riot
Squad.
These are very important things that should be considered and included
in all police t raining and police planning in the next few
months.
�- 10 -
In any eme:rgen c.,v th.2 Atlanta Police Department will cancel all leaves and
off days and go on 12 hour shifts, seven days per week.
This act alone will more than double the police personnel available for
street duty.
Police officers would be working 84 hours per week instead of 40 hours
per week.
Every officer below the rank of Capta in would receive time and half for
overtime pay.
This means that the number of officers a s signed to the trouble area
would equal the total number of police personnel in the
department, leaving an equal number of officers to patrol
the other parts of the city not involved in the civil disorder.
(You will find most citizens very much interested in this part of the
program.)
A city ordinance authorizes the Mayor to define the boundaries and
identify the area where civil disorders are occurring or
expected, and to request the assistance of the National Guard
when needed.
The Mayor has full autho rity and r esponsibility to ma ke thi s
determination.
When the Guard arrive s on the s cene , p olice offi ce rs will be assigne d
to accompany the Guard on their mission.
�- 11 -
The police will take into custody and detain all persons that shoµld be
arli"ested.
The police will process and present all prisoners and witnesses to
the courts.
The Guard will deliver all injured persons to the medical center.
Additional action taken by the police
01·
Guard will be subject to orders
issued on the scene by the Adjutant General or his
subordinate officer.
Incidentally the subordinate officer ln this case happens to be a police
lieutenant in the TraJnlng Division of the Atlanta Police
Department.
The hlgh crime r ate - The continued increase in crime - ..
Civil disorders -And poverty, are so closely r elate~ in my opinion, that they cannot be
·s eparated.
I agaiJi wish to remind you that lt w;ts the conclusion of the Atlanta
Com mission on Crime and Juvenile Delinquency , and the
President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Adm\nistration of Justice - that ~rime and poverty were twin~ tlult could not be separat~d, and one
could not be improved without improving the other.
�- 12 -
l
dq nQt belleve that I can over-emphasize the need for police training
-.
and police planning for the pol~ce of this nation, to succes~-
fully meet the challenge that we will face in the next
twelve mo~ths,

25 Oc t ober 1967
Mayor Ivan Allen , Jr.,
City Ha ll
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
I hesitate to inter rupt your busy day, but feel tha t you would
like to know wha t goes on wi t hin you r Police and Parks Dep ar t ments .
Firs t , let me s a y t hat I am a t ax paye r .
and pai d taxes f or twenty-one ye ars.
Have owned my home
Recen t l y , t wo t hings have occurred which have caused me mu ch
di s tress and inconve n ience, and which I f eel de fin ite l y are pol i ce
matters and which al so concerns the Parks ·Depar t ment . The pol i ce have
taken no ac tion othe r than t o come ou t and look the si tuation over .
I would like to know if a tax payer i s entitled t o pro t ec tion for I
need help very badly . I am a widow and live alone .
For many weeks now I have been the victim of vandalism. I have
had some construction work , under contrac t, and redecoration done on
my house . The painter did not return my key, even when asked to do so.
I understand that the contractor did no t pay him f o r his work, and so
he has evidently been trying t o destroy the work and me along with it .
One afternoon I c ame home from my o ffice to find that some sort
of substance had been sprayed on the bathroom walls and the tub was completely covered with it . I felt it and it seemed to be a substance very
like shellac with oil and a white substance added. I was distressed and
called the police department. An officer arrived, saw the condition of
things and called the Crime Prevention Department. Officer B. R. Owens
then came out. He told me to wash the substance out of the tub with
soap and water, made a few notes regarding some items that were missing
from the house, and departed. He did not even examine the storm door
through which the vandals had to enter, even though they had a key to
the door leading into the house. The storm door was locked and I told
the officer that it appeared to have been tampered with as there were
scratches on the lock. He said I might have done it, which I did not.
It was a new lock. He then said he felt the matter was not one the
police should handle, but that he would send me a report on his findings. That was around the 22 of September and to this date I have not
had a report from Officer Owens, which I need for insurance purposes.
However, I washed the tub out with soap and water , as advised,
�,- -
and took a bath. Irrnnediately my s kin burned like fire and became ver y
red. After the redness disappeare d , I bec ame aware that my fa ce and
entire body was covered with a coating of shellac or plastic-like substance, which has entirely c losed the p©res of the skin. This substance
wont come off and my dermatologist has pres cribed many treatments to no
avail so far. It is making me ill. My face feels as thought it was covered
with a mud pack, which had dried, then could not be removed.
The painter, whom I sus pe c t of cormnitting this atroc ity, is free,
and no one has even bothered to i nvestigate him. I ' ve had no police protec tion at all and not even the courtesy of a report s o I could file my
c laim with the insurance company fo r the missing items taken from my home.
I have called the policenany times, request i ng this report and all I get
is a promise or am told Officer Owens is off-duty. Will you please try
to help me?
I can't remove the substance from my bath tub , lavatory or kitchen
sink either . I have even tried varnish remover. The substance has been
sprayed on the drape s, upholstering , bed spreads, furniture, walls and
woodwork . They also sprayed my new wall-to-wall carpeting and some carpet i ng exi sting on the floors. The pile is s t uck to gether .
It seems that I have fallen into the hands of crooks . The contracto r
did not complete his contract, rior pay some of his workmen, so t hey have
f i led l i ens against my house. He brought the painters to the job and this
work the contractor wa s supposed to have paid for as a part o f the contrac t .
I t l ooks as though an owner ha s no r ight s, by law , a t a l l , no t even t he
right of police pro t ecti on . I have retained an at to r ne y who has filed
su it agains t the contractor f or default of contrac t . But that will take
time and I nee d imme diate ass i stance.
The second matte r concerns both t he Pol i ce Dep artment and t he Parks
Department .
I live across the street from Chastain Memor ial Park on Lake Forrest
Drive , N.W. Before we pur chased our l o t , we were to l d by some members of
Mr . Chastain ' s family t hat he had bequeathe d the acreage on whi ch the park
is located t o; I believe , Fulton County , as the prope rty at that time was
loca t ed outside the c ity limits, wi th the stipulation that a golf course
be built on it and that the park be kept be autiful in order to be an asset
to that section of the county. After this park was incorporated into the
City of Atlanta , the connnissioners began letting the park run down. It
has been very shabbily kept and the connnissioners have even tried to give
a concession to a company to ins tall amus ement-type equ ipment in the park.
The people in my sec tion have been forced constantly , over the yea rs, to
fight this sort of thing. as all of us have quite a bit of money tied up
in our property and the area is restricted. This undesirable use of the
park would completely ruin a nice neighborhood, one that has always been
quiet and beautiful, and it would at the same time greatly devaluate our
property.
2
�Within the past five years or so the Parks Connnissioner has done
several things cl andestine ly , so that we did not learn abou t it in time
to prates t .
The first thing was the erec tion of poorly cons truc ted shacks on
the ball field at the co rner of Wieuca and Lake Forres t Drive to house
the Little League's ball equipment . They had alre ady graded the land,
installed s torm sewers for drainage and erec ted tal l bright lights so
games could be played at night as well as during the day . They also installe d loud speakers, whi c h they turne d up so high that the s ound has
just about shattered our ear drums. We cannot sit in our living rooms
without c l osing the windows and drawing the blinds bec aus e of the noise
and the blinding lights . We can't even hear our t e l evisions. This fie l d
is us ed f or bo th baseball and fo o tbal l, whi ch means that this a c tivity
goes on most of the year .
We have just learned that the Parks Commi s sion i s getting ready to
build a stadium on the park site just across from my home, s outh of the
one on the corner of Wieuc a and Lake Forrest Drive . Grading has already
been done and probably the drainage sys t em. Thi s work has also been done
c landestinely . The portion of the park neare r the street ac r oss from me
is already being used for baseball and football prac ti ce. This we do not
object to. It is the ball park and the inconsideration of the people
using the facilities whi ch is objec tionable.
At the present time, the nice, considerate mammas and pappas of these
practicing ball players come out in droves, park their cars on both sides
of Lake Forrest Drive covering a two block ar~a. The street is a two lane
street only, and there is posted on the park side of the street signs denoting "No Parking at Any Time" . In spite of this, these nice people ignore the parking rules, the rights of others and park anywhere they please.
Consequently, the late afternoon, heavy traffic (and our street accomroodates
heavy traffic) has only one lane left on which to travel. This creates a
traffic jam every afternoon, which lasts for alroost two hours. Poor working people, like myself, after having worked all day, fought the heavy
traffic through the city, arrive near home to find tha t they can't get
through. So we sit and wait for the traffic to clea~ the one lane before we are able to drive into our own driveways. But, many times lately,
even the privilege of driving into our driveways has been denied us, for
junior's nice considerate parents are now parking across our driveways.
This has happened time after time. I have called the police and so have
my neighbors. They come out and politely request these people to move their
cars. In the meantime, my car sits in the one lane, blocking traffic for
blocks behind me until the officer can find the lawbreaker and get the car
out of the way. He doesn't even give the person a ticket. Across the street
in the "No Parking" zone sits a long row of cars, parked illegally. The
officer does not even say a word to them, just ignores it. He gives me a
line about trying to do something for the kids to cut down on delinquency.
Right here, may I make a suggestion? Why doesn't someone do something
about the delinquent parents? After all, junior's trouble boils down to
3
�the fact that mannna and pappa ei the r ·don't care or are too ignorant to do
anything about controlling Junior. They have found an eas y solution just dump Juni or into the hands of a coach and t hen that leaves them free
to go on t heir merry way unhampered. So, these delinquent parents, because of their inability t o shoulder their own responsibilities, are al lowed to inconveni ence and annoy law-abiding tax payers, even though -;:
these same parents are members of a minority group whose boys are interested in baseball or football. Do we have no righ t s at all?
The straw that broke the camels back occurred last Saturday morning, Oc t ober 21st 1967. Ar ound 8 :00 A. M. I had occasion to l eave my home
on a very important errand . Whe n I was ready to leave, I f oun d my driveway blocked again . I c alled the po lice, waited 40 minutes but if they
came, I did not see them. While I was looking for the police car , the
car b lock ing my drive drove off. I gathered up my things t o leave again
and found that another car had jus t driven up and parked in my driveway,
partially blo cking it. Yes, I was f urious! I again called the po lice
and told them that if they didn't get out there in a hurry, I would take
mat ters into my own hands. They came, but the offi cer began giving me
more talk about entertaining the children . I demanded that he give the
person blocking my driveway a ticket and remove the cars from a cross the
street in the "No Parking" zone also . He called his Lieutenant . I waited.
By this time I was an hour late. The Lieutenant finally came and I asked
him to do the same thing. He told the officer to find the owners of the
cars a nd ask them to repark their cars and to ask the owner of the car
blocking me to move the ca r. This took time. No ticket was given anyone e xcept one car whose owner di d not seem to be present .
So wha t happened! The very considera te mammas and pappas were
back Monday afternoon, a ll of them par ked along the " No Pa r kin g" zone
and in front of drivewa ys again. The y know, o f course, that the y wi ll
never get a t i cke t , but wil l jus t be as ked oh, so poli tely , t o 100ve thei r
cars . I s this the way the Poli ce Depa r tment is supposed to f u lfil l their
du tie s? Ar e we , the tax payi ng , l aw- abi ding citi zens s upposed t o be happy
and e ndure this tre atment?
I would l ike t o ask and have answe r ed t wo ques tions , Mr. Alle n.
No . 1 : Who pays f o r a ll o f thi s deve l opment o f ba ll par ks , grand stands ,
lighting systems , gradi ng , drainage sys tems , loud speakers , etc. ? I t
must take quite a slice of the tax payer ' s 100ney to do this .
No. 2: How long does the City of At l anta expec t their burdened tax payers
to stand for s uch treatment an d at the same time be pena l ize d by having
their property , for which taxes are high , devaluated by such action on the
part of the Parks Connnission, as well as having their privacy invaded and
being inconvenienced all of the time?
Mr. Mayor, I am not only asking, but I am demanding that my driveway be kept clear. If the police department cannot or will not do this,
I am taking the right to clear it whenever I find it blocked. I know that
blocking of an individual driveway is illegal and I defy aoyone to deny me
the privilege of right-of-way into my own property.

attention to Superintendent Chafin, Lt. B obby Moore ,

coor dination with this Headq uarters , the FBI, and other

grateful for these officer .

Dear Captain Royal:
I would like to express my gr atitude f or your personal assistance
when my s ec r et ary's automobile was impounded . Needles s to say she was
delighted t o, as she put it , 11 to see a smi l i ng f ace at t he door of t he
Police Station 11 • The whole i ncident wa s r egre t abl e, a nd I a ssure you
i t will not happen agai n .
The r e is one comment I wo uld l ike t o make regarding t he traff i c
officer involved in the i ncident. Officer Penrod was very courte ous
and rather apologetic that it was necessary to take such acti on, but
a s I mentioned before, he was only doing his sworn duty . Thi s offi cer
is i ndeed a gentl eman and a credi t to his department . I cannot say it
has been a pleasure doing business with him, however, s i nce he has
ticketed me several times for ove r time parking, and each time I have
been guil ty . But, it i s gratifying to know that this officer is so
conscientious .
If there is any need of our assistance for you or your personnel
for air travel plans, please feel free to call on us at your convenience.

Dear Richard:
Elliott Goldstein is at home 111 and has asked me to
contaet you concerning the following matter in his absence.
As Elliott discussed with you previously, we are quite concerned
by the manner in which the liquor license in conneetion with
the Racquet Club has been handled . It appears to us that this
1s truly an excellent illustration of being "guilty by association. 11
Therefore, e feel that our clients are entitled to have the facts
presented, rather than to be denied their rights based on rumors.
Therefore, we suggest tbat you select an investigator,
acceptable to us, and we will pay the reasonable expenses of a
thorough and complete investigation, so that the facts may be
available to your committee and to the appropriate authorities.
Al.so, Mr . Cerami would like to have the opportunity of discussing
this matter with you personally, at your convenience . In the
meantime, should you agree to this investigation, e would
suggest that the bar facilities at the Racquet Club would be
re-leased to Mr. Jack Rice and operated by him independent of
the owners or the Racquet Club. ·
I have tried to reach you by telephone, but I understand
that you are quite busy. Therefore, I have taken the liberty of
writing you so that you may consider this proposal as soon as
possible.
I would appreciate it if you ould call
you have given this matter further thought.
e as soon as
Very truly yours,
