Excerpt from The American Review of Reviews, 1913, Vol. 47
Last summer it was shown in a startling way that the New York police were in collusion with ille gal gambling resorts, were protecting them for pay on a regular system, and were ready to resort to any means to save themselves and their graft. A gambler, threatening to tell tales, was murdered by direct instigation of a high police oﬂicer. An energetic District Attorney secured the conviction not only of the unfortunate gangsmen who 'shot the gambler, but also of the official who em ployed them. The protection of gambling by policemen in New York is as old as the State laws that make gambling places illegal.
