Let the police check him out!
We're just pointing the police in a direction.
We have a police force and a court system to apply the laws equally to all.
The police were treating the manner as abduction.
I was so frightened when the police called.
If the police investigated in an orderly way and took their time the victim would most likely be harmed or killed.
The police are getting wise and keeping their mouths shut.
Why, to the police, of course!
Now, if I was trying to hide my identity, the last thing I would want her to do would be to file a police report while she was living under my roof.
This man, an ex-captain of police, was saying angrily:
This letter requested the count to send police officers to guide the troops through the town, as the army was retreating to the Ryazan road beyond Moscow.
Giddon encouraged her to file a police report, and she refused.
The superintendent of police, who had gone that morning by Count Rostopchin's orders to burn the barges and had in connection with that matter acquired a large sum of money which was at that moment in his pocket, on seeing a crowd bearing down upon him told his coachman to stop.
She wasn't on my list, probably because the police considered the case closed.
The superintendent of police, whom the crowd had stopped, went in to see him at the same time as an adjutant who informed the count that the horses were harnessed.
Howard said the police wouldn't tell him anything about you.
"I want to stop him before he screws up a real missing person case by sending the police off on a snipe hunt," he snarled.
We learned later, at first the police were suspicious of the parents as they couldn't believe someone could enter a small house with sleeping adults and two boys in an adjoining room, and not be heard.
He didn't like a police officer there – or her leaving with him, but what could he say?
Three men talking to each other on a sidewalk certainly wasn't enough to tell the police – except Len.
Police dogs were seen combing the property.
I was dragged to my feet from behind by my captor as police burst through the door and the room ignited with the blinding glow of several flash lights.
A police car raced by with its siren screaming.
As he opened the door, a police car pulled up to the curb.
She searched out other tip line numbers and the Warwick Police as well.
No such system of laws controls relations among nations, no significant world police force exists, and the world court system is very weak.
He'll explain... voices in the rear of the crowd were suddenly heard saying, and the general attention turned to the police superintendent's trap which drove into the square attended by two mounted dragoons.
If he was concerned about the police, he gave no indication.
We're not dogs, said the ex-captain of police, and looking round he noticed Alpatych.
Police called it the work of one person, attributed to at least six earlier deaths.
On one occasion, while walking on the Common with her, I saw a police officer taking a man to the station-house.
This ought to help the credibility issue; there's more to some tips than the police know, but haven't made public because it would enforce credence in a psychic connection for the tip.
Fortunately, the boy ran off but the police, who were following Bryce based on our earlier tip, photographed his attempted abduction.
Prince Kutuzov's adjutant has brought me a letter in which he demands police officers to guide the army to the Ryazan road.
Why were the police tight lipped about him?
Lisa had time between when Howard left and Giddon arrived to call the police, but she didn't.
I mean, we're siccing the police after someone Howie saw in... a vision, for God's sake!
He was in the area and the police took a good look at him from the information I have but there wasn't enough evidence to charge him.
"Call a tip line, or the Warwick police," I said.
Following the superintendent of police and talking loudly the crowd went in the direction of the Lubyanka Street.
The police blamed street violence though the neighborhood was wrong and girl had no known gang involvement.
It seems the police are looking into the situation.
I don't know a whole lot Julie, but I understand the police at the time had a strong suspect but couldn't prove anything.
The superintendent of police turned round at that moment with a scared look, said something to his coachman, and his horses increased their speed.
They were both pale, and the superintendent of police, after reporting that he had executed the instructions he had received, informed the count that an immense crowd had collected in the courtyard and wished to see him.
The police detective helped us by perjuring himself.
Unknown to the police and the public, her prominent father was molesting her while her mother looked away.
Mr. Cooms didn't involve the police so I don't know how we'd check the area clinics or doctors.
"Bumpus and I got to ride in the back cage of the police car," Molly said as they met me in the driveway.
The article listed past instances of use, admitting on rare occasions the psychic proved helpful to police investigations.
The fiend who did that is still out there; the one who killed those children and police officer and God knows who else!
The higher authorities and the police organized the distribution of goods left behind by the French.
The police sometimes don't even hear the entire tip... just enough to lead them in the right direction, and find the person.
I didn't know what to think when that police car rolled up with its lights blazing.
Meanwhile he went himself to the police authorities.
When he awoke next morning the major-domo came to inform him that a special messenger, a police officer, had come from Count Rostopchin to know whether Count Bezukhov had left or was leaving the town.
The club is closed and the police are leaving.
It's so nice not to listen to police sirens and taxies honking their horns but I'm afraid we might have woken Howie up earlier.
Even the police, who see the aftermath of terrible, gut-wrenching crimes, aren't forced to watch them actually happening.
But in spite of this he continued to struggle desperately forward, and from between the backs of those in front he caught glimpses of an open space with a strip of red cloth spread out on it; but just then the crowd swayed back--the police in front were pushing back those who had pressed too close to the procession: the Emperor was passing from the palace to the Cathedral of the Assumption--and Petya unexpectedly received such a blow on his side and ribs and was squeezed so hard that suddenly everything grew dim before his eyes and he lost consciousness.
The problem is her abductor is the revered local police chief!
The local police think it's tied into the kidnapping he 'solved'.
I listed three facts conveyed to three different police agencies that she could call and confirm.
The police responded and I was taken to a hospital where proper care was being given.
In the distance and getting closer I heard the sound of police sirens and in minutes two cruisers pulled into the driveway.
Knowing the local police included Detective Jackson, I suggested he contact the Simi Valley attorney first to find out if the vehicle I saw was in fact his.
If I was stopped by the police I could have used the escort.
If I hadn't taken time to apply my sleeping solution to the rag, I'd have been in the process of taking them just as that police car with its flashing lights came rolling up!
I'll go to the police officer, and you tell them so, and that they must stop this and the carts must be got ready.
He was willing to personally alert the local police and have them check out the vehicle even without clear cut identification.
"That's lying to the police," Quinn cautioned but no one paid him heed.
Didn't the police set up road blocks?
Martha was angry, certainly at the perpetrator but also at the Warwick police for not summarily arresting the man and rescuing the boy.
Police were stationed at the brightly lit entrance which was carpeted with red baize, and not only gendarmes but dozens of police officers and even the police master himself stood at the porch.
But first, I must protect myself from the worthless snapping hounds of police before I search out this mystery clairvoyant.
The city police is established on its former footing, and better order already prevails in consequence of its activity.
I bet that will be as popular with the police as internal affairs or stale donuts.
The Police didn't buy it and both were arrested, thereby renewing Howie's credibility.
They abused the police and bribed them, made out estimates at ten times their value for government stores that had perished in the fire, and demanded relief.
On the same day the Chief of Police came to Pierre, inviting him to send a representative to the Faceted Palace to recover things that were to be returned to their owners that day.
How I love the open country, away from city police and cameras at every intersection.
I knew no human saw me that night and yet the dogs of police received information on me and began snapping at my heels!
Any police officer would have done as much!
A painstaking police officer, considering the presence of a corpse in his excellency's courtyard unseemly, told the dragoons to take it away.
I should be leaving for the police station in a few minutes.
Then came the arrest, and with it the fear of being questioned by the police.
Now go away or I'll call the police.
He remained content to leave such criminal havoc in the hands of the police.
I filled him in on the details; skirting the reason Merrill Cooms didn't report the break-in to the police.
Howie, you have to talk to the Keene police.
Like that's going to satisfy the police...
I really don't want to lie outright to the police.
But what made the police seek out the woman and child and drive directly to them?
What do the police know?
If I can't today have this child so abruptly placed in police care, I shall drive down the road and find another.
We alerted the state police down there and now that the FBI is excited, there are a lot more eyes looking for him.
The police were desperate to find her.
He didn't come back until morning and there were police cars all over the place.
You said there were others the police should have questioned.
I explained to Howie as I dialed the police officer's number.
The description of that vehicle is plastered at every toll booth, state police barracks and wire service from here to California and back.
As we made the turn into the mall I could see at least half dozen police cruisers, some with lights still spinning, parked helter-skelter near the entrance.
I closed my eyes and swallowed my sobs on the short trip to the police facility.
The entire area was swarming with people in all manners of attire from combat ready armament to business suits to uniformed police.
I turned off the recorder and left to drive to police headquarters.
The scene was defined by a cluster of police cars and fire engines bathed in rotating lights.
We should just call the police.
If I'm not back in twenty minutes, go someplace safe and call the police, okay? she said, placing it on the dashboard.
"The police are on their way!" she cried.
Clad in the dark blue uniform of the police, Travis gave a nod of recognition as he passed him.
Father, couldn't you just call the police?
The scent of the ocean was on the air, and the area in front of them was guarded by tourist police while tourists camped out in small tents up and down the road.
Doubtful, she winced as they approached tourists and police alike, waiting for someone to stop them, and fearful of what her father would do if someone did.
You don't suppose he has a police record, do you?
Couldn't the police track him down?
In our house, we didn't call the police.
I've chased more bad guys running Bird Song bed and breakfast than when I was a Parkside, Pennsylvania police detective.
He could lie and tell them he was a police officer or sheriff and maybe squeeze some tidbit of information about recently released mom Patsy, but surely Fitzgerald would find out and tank his election ambitions, if those aspirations weren't already six feet under.
That subjected them to all kinds of trouble—not just a spanking, but police involvement, assuming they were older.
It wasn't a new sight—he'd spent far too many years as a police officer not to have seen it, uncounted but never forgotten times.
Dean "attended" college, served in the military, and was employed by the Parkside, Pennsylvania Police Department for fifteen years.
"I'm much more comfortable telling you why I feel capable of performing the duties than picking apart Mr. Fitzgerald," Dean said as he detailed his duties in direct police work and the experience he'd gained from them.
It's not as if I wasn't in police work long enough to know that, but Billy's death was such a god-awful waste of a young life.
His story checked out, and after extensive questioning, the police released him.
Wherever she is, I'd be more comfortable if she were in police hands.
"Police hands didn't stop her mother from kidnapping her," Cynthia grumbled as the two made their way to the porch.
"I'll call the police department," Dean said, "then an ambulance."
"Look," he said, "we have to call the police.
David Dean harbored serious doubts about leaving Lydia Larkin's apartment without either contacting the police or calling an ambulance—or maybe a lawyer.
You should have called the police.
That's assault of a police officer!
The yard was filling up with vehicles as two police cars and finally an ambulance arrived.
You need to tell the police where to find him.
Lori shook her head, still obviously reluctant to talk to the police.
Lori, you might be able to convince the police that you didn't intend for him to hurt anyone, physically.
The police arrived as they were finishing supper.
But surely he knew by now that the police were after him.
Maybe she should tell the police.
Her thoughts clearing, she realized she needed to call the police about the body she found.
She never did call the police about the body she found.
Relief flooded her as she saw the police tape around the area where she'd found the body.
If anything weird happens, please walk or run away or call the police or something.
There were three then five voices with a sixth calling the police and the seventh hugging the sobbing kid.
She protested until the cops came and took them both to a police station.
Too surprised to understand what exactly was happening, she obeyed the police officer's instructions to sit down and shut up and sat in the quiet police station reception area.
It resembled a doctor's waiting room rather than any police station she'd seen.
She'd never been in a police station, but she didn't think they'd be this different from the police shows on television!
She'd not thought twice about their lack of police uniforms but was now struck by it.
This wasn't a police station.
She'd been too flustered to pay attention to the trip to the police station and looked around, not recognizing the area.
"At a police station?" she asked skeptically.
She attached the prescriptions to the fridge with another cartoon magnet and smoothed out the paperwork she'd been given from the police station.
Aside from the birth certificate, there was no way the rest were official police papers!
Gio had the police looking everywhere for you!
She'd had an impending sense of doom since meeting Gabriel on the street outside the faux police station, but this feeling was…defined.
The two had shared Dean's bachelorhood for fifteen years until Dean, an ex-Pennsylvania police detective married Cynthia Byrne seven months earlier.
He used to be a police detective, back in Pennsylvania.
Dean explained to his wife the number of times in his police career he'd seen battered women refuse to follow through when confronted by their abusive mate.
Riding in a police car is the next best thing to a fire engine.
Dean considered calling the City of Ouray Police but realized they too could be of little help unless Shipton did something against the law.
Sheriff Weller or the police chief would jump all over you.
Enforcement of all rules will apply appropriately by the Ouray County Sheriff, the Ouray Police or by any board member of the Ouray Ice Park, Inc.
"I think we'd better call the police department," Dean said.
Until he does something to warrant police action, I'd say he has every right to stay.
If you don't come up with some answers, you're going to find the police at our door, asking you some pretty pointed questions.
And when I say police, I don't just mean Jake Weller.
A yellow police tape blocked off the area where Shipton had belayed for his ill-fated drop.
As Dean and his stepfather neared the bridge, they looked up to see a uniformed City of Ouray police man pointing at him.
Do you always provide a police escort?
We're here at the invitation of the Ouray Police Department, Fitzgerald said, not even attempting to hide the chill in his voice.
The police spoke to Fred next, while Dean strolled back toward his quarters, with Corday's question concerning his wife's return echoing in his mind.
The police haven't even informed his wife if her husband is dead or alive!
"That's what the police are supposed to be doing," Dean said, his voice heavy with sarcasm.
By my read, all the police are doing is making a case against David Dean.
I guess she was afraid the police might search their stuff.
He crossed his fingers that he was ahead of the police, and his wife would be there to answer.
Dean told her the police wanted to question her.
If you ain't here, Corday and the police can't ask you questions you might not want to answer, like what's Cynthia's Indiana address.
You were a police officer yourself.
The police are already investigating Jerome Shipton's accident and—" "Accident?
He didn't tell the police he had the knife 'cause he thought he'd get in trouble over it.
Bird Song was as quiet as an empty church with none of the remaining guests in evidence, nor was there any sign the police had returned.
"The police know about us," she whispered.
Are the police still there?
Even Sheriff Jake Weller was there, and the city police chief and, in various costumes of night-wear, Fred, the Quincy sisters and Gladys Turnbull who'd let out a banshee scream that woke everyone but poor Edith Shipton, who'd never wake again.
The last thing he wanted now was for the police to interview his wife so soon after she'd hung up on him as he lay in bed with the now-dead Edith Shipton.
The police are still here, but I haven't told them.
Maybe the police took it.
He could feel her tense against him as he explained in detail the late night suicide and the termination of the police investigation.
"That's what the police believe," Dean answered, surprising himself with so qualified an answer.
Why were you avoiding the police?
I was frightened to death to talk to the police.
And a little while later the police were all over the place.
Call the City Police, too.
A police guard blocked Dean's door for the first twenty-four hours, precluding visitors.
It's possible he waited around hours, until the afternoon when the police had left and it was quiet.
Wouldn't the police have examined the rope after Shipton fell?
Remember, the police were sure the rope was cut when Shipton was part way down.
The upside for him was they never involved the police.
I couldn't come up with an explanation that would keep him from notifying the police.
Detective David Dean sat in the Parkside Pennsylvania Police Headquarters with his feet in his lower desk drawer.
The first word on the case Sackler and DeLeo were arguing about had come by way of a call from the Norfolk, Virginia Police Department the prior afternoon, Dean's day off.
The uniformed guys downstairs had drawn lots to see who got stuck informing the next of kin, and since that time, speculation on the disappearance of Jeffrey Byrne had been the chief topic of conversation at the Parkside Police Department.
According to Detective Norman Hunter of the Norfolk Police Department, Byrne's bed had not been slept in.
Police are continuing to investigate while a search for the body is underway.
Police Headquarters was located in the center of town between the City Hall and the library, across from a well-kept park that contained the obligatory statue of a civil war hero.
She had received notice from Parkside's police officer McCarthy the prior day, Tuesday, late in the afternoon.
When the police appeared at the door the next day, she was sure something had happened to her son, not her husband.
Later she received a telephone call from the Norfolk Police Department, but it only confirmed what Officer McCarthy had already told her.
Phil Riley said the Norfolk police suggested Jeff was drunk.
She named a salary figure close to the small amount Dean drew from the Parkside Police Department.
The vehicle was in police custody in Norfolk but the authorities there said it would be released to the World Wide local office shortly.
From a pay phone in the lobby of the large building, he placed a call to the Parkside Police Department.
I'm going down to Norfolk Friday to talk to the local police, but so far, there isn't a thing to point to the guy skipping.
While the pair was a definite annoyance to the Parkside police, the two were seldom a serious problem...
The young attorney was always well prepared, and the police appreciated how tenaciously he pursued his cases.
Detective Hunter pointed out the sights as they left the airport and drove toward the center city police headquarters.
The level of activity at Norfolk Police Headquarters made Parkside's much smaller operation look like the front porch of an old folk home.
She wrote a cover story about how the police force is sitting around on their thumbs while the poor widow's little twin darlings remain missing.
The story of the inefficiencies of the Parkside Police caught his attention.
Vinnie claimed to be able to show the police where Billie and Willie had been hiding and continued to brag that he had enough information to make headlines and sink half the Philadelphia mobsters.
He then told her the Parkside Police Department would close the investigation from this end unless something new came to light.
Dean took his sweet time before explaining it was police business.
The 'case' is a police matter if it's a case at all.
Dean laughed and told her his visit was neither social nor to perform mayhem—it was police business, sort of.
Dean tucked the list in his pocket and walked the short distance around the corner to Police Headquarters.
It was shortly before 11:00 when the federal visitor from Philadelphia arrived, heralding Dean's return to legitimate police work.
The principal located the boy, who willingly answered Dean's questions once he learned his own activities were of no interest to the police.
"We've closed the police investigation," Dean interjected.
If you're an honest, law-abiding guy, like everyone says Jeffrey Byrne was or is, why don't you just turn it in to the closest police station?
There's a State Police Barracks somewhere along that Interstate.
The last thing you want to do is walk into a police station with a couple of suitcases of what's most likely stolen money.
"Police business," Fred said before Dean could answer.
Denise—one of the girls in the file room—said the police were doing a check on Jeff.
He parked in a no-parking zone, figuring even the police wouldn't be out on a night like this.
The police figured you weren't coming, with the storm and all.
Dean left word with the attendant that he would phone the coroner and the Norfolk police in the morning.
Before, it was just police business.
After showering and dressing, he wrote a short note explaining he would be at police headquarters until midmorning and slipped it under her door.
He was clearly embarrassed and apologized to Dean on behalf of everyone in the Norfolk Police Department, the City of Norfolk and the entire south.
Dean called the Parkside Police Department and caught hell from Leland for not keeping him posted on the Wasserman autopsy and current details.
Dean didn't go into any detail explaining why he had not gone to the Norfolk Police Station the prior evening—he just mumbled that he had a very distraught widow on his hands.
Dean filled in to his lieutenant the details of the Norfolk trip, leaving out what he felt wasn't police business—a surprisingly large portion.
The Ice Lady, Linda Segal, was going full bore at the Sentinel, trying to convince her reading public that the poor lad might have been saved had the local police properly conducted the search for the missing boy in a timely fashion.
You didn't tell them you were from the police, did you?
To call the police...and a doctor.
I don't need no doctor and you're the police.
Dr. Blanchard went up to Fred's room while the police followed Dean around the downstairs, filling out their report.
The pair finished their burglary report and agreed to try and keep the matter out of the papers in deference to Dean's other police activities.
It had been stolen, so the police had no way of putting out a call for Nota and his friend unless someone in the neighborhood had sharp eyes.
News of the break-in on Collingswood Avenue had traveled with the speed of an Olympic sprinter through the Parkside, Pennsylvania police department.
"What place is safer than the police station?" said Winston.
Can't the Norfolk police chase him down?
I'm still frightened it will be the police in Norfolk even though I know that's silly.
In the meantime, Dean had all he could do to keep up with Parkside's police day-to-day activities.
There was no stopping the chaos that reigned over the entire Parkside Police Department until Wednesday when in rode federal agent Jonathan Winston.
All this was made possible by the untiring work of the Parkside Police Department.
By Wednesday afternoon police business had fallen back to routine.
That's what police work is most of the time, just routine fact finding.
"Now all I have to do is catch her," he answered as he left the busy newspaper for police headquarters.
Tracking him down would be difficult without stepping on the jurisdictional toes of the Norfolk Police Department.
There's no police reason for anyone to be bird-dogging Arthur.
"They can't get far with a smashed windshield," he said to Fred as he plopped down in a booth to catch his breath before the police arrived.
The police arrived, in the form of Jenny Nachman and a young Hispanic named Alverez and it was suggested that Dean and Fred go to the station.
The police know about this.
Are the police still...
The police aren't investigating any part of it—here or Norfolk.
He telephoned the Parkside Police department but they had no news.
Ms. Nightingale murmured a room number and motioned down a hall crowded with bodies like the day after Gettysburg while white-coated figures strolled among the moaning, clip boards in hand With wide-eyed Fred following behind, Dean ran the gauntlet until he found the room, a small office packed with five men and a lot of smoke, three of them in Philadelphia Police uniforms.
He had no intention of calling the Parkside Police station.
Dean found the motel without difficulty and with the use of his police badge, he obtained access to the empty room.
While he'd considered bringing his revolver to Colorado, he had no official reason to do so and was reluctant to lie about being on police business.
I called police headquarters.
He wanted to run straight to the police.
If Jeff had confided in me that he'd found the money, I'd have walked him straight to the police and he might be alive today!
If you don't tell me, I'll have to go to the police with what I do know.
It was either that or let him call the police.
Who had called the police — Alex or Lori?
Did you call the police?
I heard her calling the police before you got here.
Mr. O'Hara had solved the problem without going to the police.
You need to leave, before I call the police.
Because the last one was killed somewhere where they don't have police.
The place was swarming with police and displaced residents.
GALASHIELS, a municipal and police burgh of Selkirkshire, Scotland.
The judicial power is vested in the Supreme Court of Appeals, the Circuit courts, such inferior courts as may be established, county courts, the powers and duties of which are, however, chiefly police and fiscal, and in justices of the peace.
The county court, consisting of three commissioners elected for six years but with terms so arranged that one retires every two years, is the police and fiscal authority.

The members accidentally discovered that the fear of it had a great influence over the lawless but superstitious blacks, and soon the club expanded into a great federation of regulators, absorbing numerous local bodies that had been formed in the absence of civil law and partaking of the nature of the old English neighbourhood police and the ante-bellum slave patrol.
Police.Broadly, the police of France may be divided into two great branchesadministrative police (la police administrative) and judicial police (la police judic-iaire), the former having for its object the maintenance of order, and the latter charged with tracing out offenders, collecting the proofs, and delivering the presumed offenders to the tribunals charged by law with their trial and punishment.
Subdivisions may be, and often are, named according to the particular duties to which they are assigned, as la police politique, police des mceurs, police sanitaire, &c. The officers of the judicial police comprise the juge de paix (equivalent to the English police magistrate), the maire, the commissaire de police, the gendarmerie and, in rural districts, the gardes champtres and the gardes forestiers.
Gardiens de la pair (sometimes called sergents de yule, gardes de yule or agents de police) are not to be confounded with the gendarmerie, being a branch of the administrative police and corresponding more or less nearly with the English equivalent police constables, which the gendarmerie do not, although both perform police duty.
The organization of the Paris police, which is typical of that in other large towns, may be outlined briefly.
The central administration (administration centrale) comprises three classes of functions which together constitute Ia police.
First there is the office or cabinet of the prefect for the general police (la police gnrale), with bureaus for various objects, such as the safety of the president of the republic, the regulation and order of public ceremonies, theatres, amusements and entertainments, &c.; secondly, the judicial police (la police judiciaire), with numerous bureaus also, in constant communication with the courts of judicature; thirdly, the administrative police (la police administrative) including bureaus, which superintend navigation, public carriages, animals, public health, &c. Concurrently with these divisions there is the municipal police, which comprises all the agents in enforcing police regulations in the streets or public thoroughfares, acting under the orders of a chief (chef de la police municipale) with a central bureau.
The municipal police is divided into two principal branchesthe service in uniform of the agents de police and the service out of uniform of ins pecteurs de police.
In Paris the municipal police are divided among the twenty arrondissements, which the uniform police patrol.

The leading men of the party were Mr Robert O'Hara Burke, an officer of police, and Mr William John Wills, of the Melbourne observatory.
The revolts of royalists and sectaries against his government had been easily suppressed, and the various attempts to assassinate him, contemptuously referred to by Cromwell as "little fiddling things," were anticipated and prevented by an excellent system of police and spies, and by his bodyguard of 160 men.

In Naples King Ferdinand retained some of the laws and institutions of Murats rgime, and many of the functionaries of the former government entered Naples his service; but he revived the Bourbon tradition, the odious police system and the censorship; and a degrading religious bigotry, to which the masses were all too much inclined, became the basis of government and social iife.
When Ferdinand returned to Naples in 1815 he found the kingdom, and especially the army, honeycombed with CarbonarQevolu- ism, to which many noblemen and officers were tiot, if, affiliated; and although the police instituted prosecuNaples, tions and organized the counter-movement of the 1820.
Inspectors and tax-gatherers did their work under police protection, and in several parts of the country riots had to be suppressed menu inililari.
The deputies of the Extreme Left, instead of using their influence in favor of pacification, could think of nothing better than to demand an immediate convocation of parliament in order that they might present a bill forbidding the troops and police to use their arms in all conflicts between capital and labor, whatever the provocation might be.
Conflicts occurred between the strikers and the independent laborers and the police; the trouble spread to the city of Parma, where violent scenes occurred when the labor exchange was occupied by the troops, and many soldiers and policemen, whose behaviour as usual was exemplary throughout, were seriously wounded.
