The New Police.
PARISHIONERS, --- ask yourselves the following Questions:
Why is an Englishman, if he complains of an outrage or an insult, referred
for redress to a Commissioner of Police?
Why is a Commissioner of Police delegated to administer Justice?
Why are the proceedings of this new POLICE COURT unpublished and
unknown? and by what Law of the Land is it recognized?
Why is the British Magistrate stripped of his power? and why is Justice
transferred from the Justice Bench?
Why is the Sword of Justice placed in the hands of a MILITARY Man?
Consider these constitutional questions : consider the additional burthen
saddled on you --- consider all these points, then UNITE in removing such
a powerful force from the hands of Government, and let us institute a Police
System in the hands of the PEOPLE under parochial appointments ---
UNITY IS STRENGTH ;
THEREFORE,
I.---Let each Parish convene a Meeting.
II.---Let a Committee be chosen, instructed to communicate with other
Parishes.
III.---Let Delegates be elected from each Committee to form a
CENTRAL COMMITTEE,
To join your Brother Londoners in one heart, one hand for the
Abolition of the New Police!
