JUSTICE FOR THE COP
American* generally (Jo not have a very good opinion of
Part of tilIh is due to the prevalence of crime in large
cities, which has led to a fairly widespread belief—some-
times justified and «ometimes not—that thfe policc arc in-
efficient and corrupt, unable to copc with gang leaders
even if they wished to.
Part of it, too, probably comes from th& fact that the
ordinary citizen's chief contact with the police comes
through this tr&ffic officer. This functionary is usually
overworked and harassed, and his temper, quite naturally,
tends to be a short one. Mr. Average American, then, ruf-
fled at getting scolded sharply for violating some traffic
rule, judges the whole force by the officer who has re-
buked him, and sets all policemen down as rude and un-
However, this isn't quite the whole story; and it is worth
remembering that the ordinary cop is ready and willing
to risk his.life against long odds for the protection of the
public. He does it repeatedly, and gets little credit for it.
There is, for instance, Patrolman Ernest Staab of Cleve-
land, who suffers from intermittent spells of sickness and
labors against a curse of ill health that may eventually
cut short his life because of his self-sacrifice and devotion
to duty at the terrible Cleveland, clinic fire two years ago.
Newspaper readers will remember that fire. The hos-
pital building filled with deadly gas, and more than 100
people lost their lives. Patrolman Staab was one of the
first.officers to reach the scene. Again and again he went
into the gas-filled building. Before he himself finally col-
lapsed, he had saved 21 lives.
For weeks Staab was at. the point of death. Finally he
recovered—partially. He still has spells of painful sick-
ness. He still does not know when one of these spells is
going to carry him off. But he simply sa/s, "It was my
job," and auks no sympathy.
There is an example of the way the "ordinary cop" rises
to the emergency.
There are plenty more like him. There is. for instance,
Patrolman Charles E. Ripley—promoted now, to a ser-
geant—of Dover, N, J., who by his nerve and quickness was
able to arrest James Nannery, a dangerous young thug for
whom police of half a dozen states were hunting.
Staab and Ripley are not uncommon characters. They
are fairly representative of the average policeman through-
out the United States. They seldom get much credit. The
ordinary citizen finds it easy to criticize thcni. But they
are there when the emergency arises.
