CHICAGO () - Daniel Walker, author of a report criti-
cizing Chicago police for their handling of bloody street vio-
lence during the Democratic National convention yesterday
called for "prompt and severe" action against offending mem-
bers of the force.
In a 345 page report to a presidential commission investi-
gating the August disorders, Walker described the nights of
melees as a "police riot."
"The suspension or dismissal of a handful of policemen
will not be enough," Walker said, to prevent a recurrence.
"This community should not settle for less than prompt and
severe action against these offenders."
He told a news conference he understands 8 or 10
policement have been suspended or dismissed. "More than a
handful were involved," he observed. "Their lieutenants and
sergeants know who they are."
Walker admitted that demonstrators who massed on
Chicago during the convention period provoked police.
But "the weight of violence was overwhelming on the
side of the police," Walker added. He said there was no avail-
able estimate of how many policemen may have participated
in violence.
In the summary of the report, Walker identifies some
of the provocation and the ensuing reaction. The provoca-
tion, the report says, "took the form of obscene epithets, and .
of rocks, sticks, bathroom tiles and even human feces hurled
at police by demonstrators. Some of these acts had been
planned; others were spontaneous or were themselves pro-
voked by police action. Furthermore, the police had been
put on edge by widely published threats of attempts to dis-
rupt both the city and the convention."
Walker explains that was "the nature" of the provocation.
The response, however, "was unrestrained and indiscrimin-
;ate police violence on many occasions, particularly at night.
"That violence was made all the more shocking by the
fact that it was often inflicted upon persons who had broken
no law, disobeyed no order, made no threat. These included
peaceful demonstrators, onlookers, and large numbers ofT
residents who were simply passing through, or happened to
live in the areas where confrontations were occurring."
Mayor Richard Daley termed the over-all report excellent !
but criticized the summary as misleading. "If used alone
the summary would mislead the public and be a disservice
to those who prepared the report," the mayor said.
He noted the report criticized a minority of the police- ,
men and added the majority of policemen "did act respon-1
sibly." "I am proud of them and so, I am sure are the peopleI
of Chicago," he said.
Walker disagreed with Daley's view of the summary, how- '
ever. He said the entire report was his opinion and "I stand 3
unequivocally on the entire report."P
Walker further declared in the summary the police "have
not been properly trained. They are trained for a one-on-one.

Hayden claimed, "and used all the

Included with the petitions is a letter from Student Gov-
