Interview with Sheriff James Clark
QUESTION 37
INTERVIEWER:

I'M SORRY, CAN YOU BACK UP, AND JUST START MENTIONING THE WORD, THE PETTUS BRIDGE, OR THAT DAY, OR WHATEVER IT WAS, SO WE KNOW WHERE WE ARE.

Sheriff James Clark:

Oh, on the day of the Pettus Bridge incident the headlines the next morning said that there were seventeen broken legs, plus other injuries. And we made a survey of all the hospitals in the area, all the clinics, and all the doctors ,and the only broken bone we could find in any, any hospital there was a com—incident that happened completely on the other side of town and was just a private altercation. That was the only broken bone.
