15,000 Unlawful Arrests at Issue

Somebody at the New York City Police Department should probably be appointed to monitor the appellate courts so that somebody can tell the officers in the front ranks when to desist from enforcing unconstitutional laws.

The State Legislature has never revised them to conform them to those rulings. Comment
