Detroit hopefuls debate Law grads listen to Hersh

'

(Continuecd from Page I)
BOTH CANDIDATES fut the
blame for Detroit's youth gang
problem on Young, with Mogk
saying "Four years ago we did
not have the gang problem that
we have today." IHe called
youth gangs, which received
widespread publicity after an
incident of violence at a Cobo
Hall concert last summer, "a
phenomenon that has occurred
duringthis administration."
Browne also called into ques-
tion the present Mayor's tech-
nique of dealing with gangs. "I
don't care what you say to a
group of people, it's how you
say it.''
After approximately o n e
hour of debate, the candidates
had attacked Coleman Young
on every front, especially the
mayor's pet project of down-
town revitalization. Mogk re-
minded the audience that the
Renaissance Center was finan-
ced and built by Henry Ford.
"The city had nothing to do
with it," he said. "We spend
days and weeks and months
dwelling on it - it's just ridic.
ulous!"
C 0 U N C I L M A N Browne
assured the audience that he
would not stop downtown de-
velopment, but added that he
was for "purposeful develop-
ment," an obvious slap at
Young's riverfront arena pro-
ject.
Both candidates came out with
identical stands on the issues,
leading one member of the au-
dience to ask them to clarify
the differences between them.
"We're going to see the is-
sues pretty much the same,"
Mogk admitted, but added that
"It's still early in the cam-
paign."
"WE BOTH have the indi-
vidual egos to believe that we
can do the better job," Mogk
said.
Mogk commented on charges.
that he would be a spoiler in
the campaign, throwing the
race to Young by stealing votes
from Browne. "It's a slam that
I don't appreciate," he said.
Mogk was also questioned
about the fact that he had so

far received no endorsements.
The powerful Detroit Police Of-
ficers Association (DPOA)
threw its support behind
Browne last week, and Henry
Ford II is an early supporter of
the incumbent mayor.
"HENRY FORD only votes
once, and it isn't in Detroit,"
Mogk said. Ile added that "The
difference Henry Ford makes
is money."
Ford is throwing a $1000 a
plate dinner for Young at the
Detroit Club on June 2nd.
As for the DPOA endorsement
of Browne; Mogk said that he
anticipates that most of the en-
dorsements will go to the other
candidates. "I'm looking for
the endorsement of the people
of this city," he said, referring
to his famous "walking" cam-
paign of 1973.
BROWNE FOUND himself
forced to defend his DPOA en-
ddrsement. "I didn't cut any
deals, I never have and I nev-
er will,"' he said. Seeing that
the police department's back-
ing might become a liability
among the black community,
where police - community re-
lations are poor at best, Browne
said, "we can't let the sins of
the past by anyone handicap
what we do today." He said
"We have a new police depart-
ment today."
Mayor Young, in a press con-
ference, last Wednesday, shrug-
ged off the DPOA's endorse-
ment of Browne. "That's the
trouble with the' DPOA, they
think they run the police de-
partment," Young commented.
"They didn't endorse me last

time," he said. "Maybe it's a
good omen."
Young has been at odds with
the police since taking office.
He had campaigned against
police brutality by an under-
cover decoy operation known
as STRESS (for Stop the Rob-
beries, Enjoy Safe Streets,) de-
feating former police commis-
sioner John Nichols. Since tak-
ing office, Young has advocat-
ed residency (which forces po-
lice officers to live inside the
city limits) and an affirmative
action program that gives mi-
norities and women priority for
promotion over white males,
who often have more senior-
ity.
This is the first time that
the DPOA has not endorsed an
incumbent mayor.

sey is the purple violet.

careers in a more ethical man-
ner than the lawyers he had
come into contact with in his
career as a journalist.
"It is my hope that you per-
form honestly, whether you are
a lawyer with a multinational
corporation or a lawyer for a
group of junkies lobbying for
clean syringes,
"I wish more lawyers would
tell toe that it is non-ethical to
talk to me," said Hersh. "You'd

be surprised what lawyers
tell reporters about their
ents behind their backs.
"Lawyers, to me are tl
people who leak grand jury
rets to me, letting me and
First Amendment take all
heat. I happen to think law)
have a strong obligation no
be silent. The press has
come mythological, but we
quite limited, After all you

power of subpoena."
