Seattle Times, Sunday September 1, 1958 





Editor, The Times:

I have been the witness of a most brutal example of unwarranted use of force. I have seen youths clubbed to the ground, and then kicked by three and four men.

I have seen young women kicked and dragged by the hair across pavement and tossed into trucks.

I have not just returned from Czechoslovakia, I have been watching the Democratic convention on television.

I am not questioning the rightness or wrongness of these young peopleís actions. I only know that what I have seen constitutes the most outrageous behavior on the part of public law enforcement people that this nation has ever witnessed.
