The only police state that I've ever seen function with such efficiency that in this country there was no way of even getting to notice it.

Quotes[edit]

  • When I first arrived in Jackson, which was July 4, 1963, there was a court order to integrate the parks in Jackson. But we couldn't even get two car loads to do that. It was, in a sense, a terrible defeat. The police arrested everybody when they did anything. You couldn't picket. The enemy was the police. It was a police state, that's all. The only police state that I've ever seen function with such efficiency that in this country there was no way of even getting to notice it.
    • as interviewed by Anne Romaine in Charlottesville, Virginia, March 4, 1967
