Interview with Ed Marciniak
QUESTION 23
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

But was this stretch- was the protection of marches stretching the police force?

ED MARCINIAK:

Sure it would. Because it meant you had to take police away from other sections of the city to protect the marchers and to prevent, ah, major violence, ah, when they marched in the neighborhood. And so there were hundreds of police being taken away from neighborhoods to concentrate on this particular issue.
