Police Harrasment

1950

ďWe used to get considerable harassment; the police would leave us alone for a period and then visit the bars. They would come in plain clothes, clear everyone out, and for a while that bar would be dead as we would find another bar to go to.
They didnít arrest people, but let it be known they were there to clear the place. I donít remember them saying anything, it was a strange situation, you would know they were plain-clothes policemen and everyone would drift out, I donít remember them harassing anyone.Ē
