THE DAILY MESSENGER/ CANANDAIGUA, N. Y. THURSDAY, JULY 13,1939. PAGE NINE Text of Nieder's Decisions in Morris, Yerg Cases Following Is the complete text of the decision of Mayor Charles F. Nieder of Geneva, in the charges brought against Chief of Police Richard W. Morris by Sergt. William C. Yerg and of the opinion in the charges alleging illicit still operation and of the decision in the charges filed by Yerg against Morris,. "On April 28, 1939, Police Sergt. William C. Yerg, filed nine separate charges of neglect of duty. misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a police officer, against R. W. Morris, Chief of Police. 'In substance these charges are as follows: "Charge No. 1--That for a period of 10 years last past one or more houses of ill fame for persons to visit for unlawful purposes have been maintained and operated at No. 9 Bradford Street and' : or No. 28 Lake Street in the City of Geneva, New York; that said houses of prostitution have been at all times during said 10 year period operated with the knowledge, connivance and consent of said Chief of Police and ' that neither of said houses were ever raided during that period r any proprietor or proprietress inmate of them ever brought into Court for prosecution, placed on trial or arrested during said period and that during said time or the greater part thereof there was a standing order of the Chief of Police known to members of the police department that no such arrest should be made unless after report to and order given by Chief of Police. Charge Enforcement Failure It is further alleged that said R. W. Morris in failing to enforce the laws of the State of New York and the laws and ordinances of the City of Geneva in respect to public morality in said city has been guilty of neglect of duty, misconduct in office and conduct police officer. 'In defense to this in his verified answer, Chief Morris denies the material allegations and admits that he has the power and authority to prevent the operation of said houses provided sufficient information can be obtained for preferring charges against any such operators. "Charge No. 3 -- That during all or the greater part of ten years last past machines known as slot machines and pin ball machines have been maintained in divers places in the City of Geneva and are gambling devices, the operation of which was then and now is unlawful under the laws of the State of New York and the ordinances of the City of Geneva. Had Authority to Act "That during all of said times said R. W. Morris was vested with power and authority to prevent the operation of said machines but that no person was apprehended, prosecuted or placed under arrest by the Chief of Police or the police department because of the operation of such gambling devices nor were any raids made thereupon except in the year 1932 and in the year 1937; that the maintenance and operation of said slot machines and said pin ball machines has been at all times with the consent and connivance of the said Chief of Police. "That said R. W. Morris has been guilty of neglect of duty, misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a police officer in failing to enforce the laws and ordinances aforesaid. "In defense thereto Chief Morris admits that certain slot machines and pin ball machines were operated and that such operation is now unlawful and that he is vested with power and authority to prevent the operation provided such proof of the illegality and operation can be obtained. He denies the other material allegations of the charge and alleges that he has investigated all complaints of gambling which were received by him and has made 81 arrests for various forms of gambling. Purchased Index System "Charge No. 4 -- That in the year 1933 said R. W. Marris showed said Officer Yerg a memindo index system stating his opinion that the officer should have one. The officer indicated that he did not need one whereupon said R. W. Morris in substance stated that he had to use up his budget or he would not be able to ask for an increase in allowance, and a short time thereafter such a system was brought to Officer Yerg by R. W. Morris and after he used it a short lime found it was not useful .and that thereafter said R. W. Morris removed the index system and Officer Yerg has never seen it since nor knows what was done with it: that in so doing said R W. Morris wasted public funds in the discharge of his duties and is guilty of neglect of duty, misconduct and conduct unbecoming an officer for so doing. "In defense thereto Chief Morris denies all of the material allegations of the charge. AMeges Fayiwenl *f wwney "Charge No, 5 -- That on or about April 1. 3935, Chief Morris called Officer Yen: into his office at the City Hall and upon closing the door handed him a roll of bills telling Officer Yerg. when asked what is was for. to never mind and stick it in his pocket and get out of the office, and that lie had, promised to take care of Ycrg. Thai said roll of bills contained $100.00. That sometime thereafter i Chief Morris stated to Officer Yerg that the $100 he had previously given him was given him by a man r who had been receiving relief while he had money deposited in the bank and was fearful of being investigated. "That folJowine such an inter- "Charge No. 6 -- That on Christmas Eve, 1935, Philip Goldberg, a representative of a manufacturer, owner or dealer of slot or pin ball machines approached Officer Yerg with a sealed envelope, handing it to him and saying "Merry Christmas." That this was done in the presence of the Chief of Police who in reply to a question asked by Officer Yerg told him to stick it in his pocket, that he knew he was going to get it. That both officers then went to City Hall where the envelope was opened and $15.00 or $20.00 found therein. That Officer Yerg suggested that the money be turned into the police pension fund but that Chief suggested that it was a Christmas present and for Yerg to stick it in his pocket and keep quiet about it. Says Receives Money Gifts "That on two other occasions in the early part of the year 1936, Chief Morris called Officer Yerg into his office and on each occasion handed him a roll of bills containing on each occasion $15 or $20 saying on each occasion that it was a present and for the officer to keep his mouth shut. That in so presenting sums of money to the officer, Chief Morris was guilty of misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a public officer and that at the time such gifts were made Officer Yerg had no reason to believe that any of the moneys were wrongfully obtained by Chief Morris and that in accepting such gifts he obeyed the instructions of bis superior officer. "In defense thereto Chief Morrii; denies each and every material allegation. 'In defense thereto Chief Morrii: denies each and every material allegation in the charge and sets up as a defense alleged disobedience of instructions on the parl, of Officer Yerg in connection with a certain criminal matter and alleges fujg^r that since 1934 Officer Yerg has acted on certain oc- casioas in an insolent and resentful manner, exercised poor judgment in handling his work, causing Chief Morris to reprimand him and instruct him and that these reprimands apparently caused friction between Chief Morris and Officer Yerg and made cooperation difficult. "Contained in said charges is an Item No. 2 which is not a charge against the Chief of Police but which is made for the purpose of presenting to the Mayor and Police Commissioners notice of the fact that for ten years last past, one or more stills for the illicit manufacture of alco- hoi for sale and use for beverage purposes in violation of the Laws of the United States and the St?ti of New York have been operated in the City of Geneva and that moneys h;.ve been collected from and paid by persons operating such stills un- cer representation that they were foi payment to Chief Morris for protection. That in view of this Officer Yerg asked for an investigation to the end that the true facts might be ascertained. The investigation was held by the Mayor and Police Commissioners and the results thereof are contained in a separate Opinion. . Deemed Privacy Necessary "When the aforesaid charges were "Charge No. 7 -- That in August, Bought to my attention I immediately saw that their very nature required the hearing of them to be private. "Numerous private hearings have been held before me and the Polic? Commissioners in connection with these charges. Thousands of iines 01 testimony have been transcribed by the two Supreme Court stenographers who attended at the hearings end took the testimony. Many witnesses appeared and testified befoir me and not until I had been furnished with the complete evidence, and had carefully read the same. I in a position to give an opin- ioi; in the matter. I received the'lasr 309 pages of testimony on July 3 Ifi39. "I was at all times concerned with the fact that the officer charged a.-; aforesaid should receive a fair anci impartial trial, devoid of any and all outside influence, political ov otherwise. Attorneys Commended 1936, Chief Morris called Officer Yerg into his office and asked him what he thought about a barn on a certain alley leading from Wadsworth Street easterly to Herbert unbecoming a Street between Middle Street and North Street as a place for a still; that in giving an explanation Chie: Morris stated that certain resident,-; of Utica were looking for a location for a still and that place had been suggested as a good location for them and that it would be worth a lot of money to the two officers. That Officer Yerg refused to consider the proposition and that the making of such a proposal to him by the Chief of Police amounts to misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a police officer. Morris Denies Charge 'In defense thereto Chief Morris denies each and every material allegation. "Charge No. 8 -- That during the year 1936 the manner and attitude of Chief Morris towards others became cold and indifferent and thai; well-known business people referred to that fact in conversation with Officer Yerg and that in the latter part of the year, 1936, Officer Yerg. speaking in a friendly way to Chief Morris asked him to change his attitude and be a little more friendly toward people and that it would be better for him and for the police department, to which the Chief made a statement containing five vulgar and obscene words which statement was directed against highly respected citizens of Geneva and in so doing that he was guilty of misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a police officer. "In defense thereto Chief Morris denies each and every material allegation and defends upon the grounds that Officer Yerg manifested a purpose and desire to command, operate and control the police force of the City of Geneva and ridiculed Chief Morris to other rnd stated that the Chief vas inefficient. Conferred on School Matters "Charge No. 9 -- That on December 23. 1938, Chief. Morris and Officer Yerg had a private consultation in City Hall concerning certain Geneva High School matters. That following the consultation and on December 28, 1938. i Chief Morris delivered to the polici: ' commissioners. Hedrick. Pierce and Brown, a written statement of charges accusing Officer Yerg of making certain statements and thai j nsission asking them to perform tht thereafter and on April 11. 1939. duties imposed upon them by law in Chief Morris publicly testified under oath at Geneva City Hall as to Officer Yerg making those statements and that in so doing and in publishing the contents of a privatn interview Chief Morns i'belcci and slandered the good name of a highly respected citizen and was therefore guilty of misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a polici? officer. "In defense thereto Chief Morris admits that following Dec. 28. 1938. he made and delivered to the for- "This evidence somewhat excuses the fact that no raids or arrests were made on them for over ten years. The charge of connivance ha: not been satisfactorily proven to me. It is a matter of common knowledge that these places operated prior to my taking office and inasmuch a they were closed by order of thr Police Commission under my direction, their operation a« aforesaid, standing alone, is not sufficient evidence to warrant a dismissal of Chief Morris in the absence of sac- iffactory evidence of connivance or, his part. However, I find him guilty of so much of the charge as includes knowledge and consent. Admit Slot Machines Operated "Charge No. 3--1 find that during the past 10 years slot machines and! or pin ball machines have been operated in the City of Geneva. In his Aerified answer Chief Morris admits this and that their operation is now unlawful. "I find that in order to sustain an arrest and conviction in such caset sufficient legal evidence must be obtained. I find that In 1937 r. num- ter of arrests were made and the pin ball machines confiscated after a. cleanup conducted by Hon. Nathan D. Lapham, then district attorney, now Justice of the Supreme Court. I find that shortly after I took office the pin ball machines again made their apprarance in Geneva, and I so notified the police commission, pointing out that a considerable amount of taxpayers money had been spent in eradicating this, evil from the city and asking them to fulfill the duties imposed upon them by law. The pm ball machines were then taken out of Geneva. "Chief Morris is charged with consenting and conniving in the operation and maintenance of these machines. Many Machines Confiscated "His defense shows numerous arrests during 10 years past, for violation of the gambling laws and there have been convictions and confiscations of the machines. There is evidence before me 'that these matters were discussed with the Police Commissions, the district attorney ant' the city attorneys and that Chief Morris corresponded with another Chief of Police in attempting eradicate these evils. There is to IK- satisfactory evidence before me to warrant a finding of such conser.t end connivance on the prt of Chief Morris, although I do find, as he sc admits under oath, that certain slot machines and pin ball machines have been operated in the City ot Geneva. In my opinion, the evidence "I \vish to thank the attorneys for I ° : knowledge on his part is nut sufficient for me to find him guilty of l'-oth men for the manner in which they conducted the case before m- and ior the courtesies which they extended to me and I wish to commend them both for the manner i.i which they presented the case. "After a careful reading of the testimony, I make the following decision in respect to each of the fci- Icwing numbered charges: "Charges Nos. 4, 7, 8 ar.d 9 have rot been substantiated by satisfactory evidence in my opinion and I find Chief R. W. Morris not guilty as charged therein. "Charge No. 1--I find that a nous? oJ prostitution has existed at No. 0 Bradford Street in the City of Gen- ntglect of duty, misconduct in office and conduct unbecoming a police officer. "Charges Nos. 5 and 6--When the first evidence in support of these charges were read by me, I felt the evidence was sufficient to uphold the charges, but on reading further testimony as it came in, I decide-.-. that the statements of Officer Yerg were unsufficiently corroborated. I. therefore, do not find against Chief Morris on these charges. Testimony on Charge Lengthy 'Charge No. 10--The evidence taken before me in support of and ir. defense of this charge is indeed eva and at No. 28 Lake Street in i lengthy. Former police commission- s«:id city for a number of years. A former operator of both of these places has testified that she maintained such houses in various otnci jrlaccs in the City of Geneva. Tii:- records of the police department and the testimony of the police officers clearly prove the existence 01 these houses. Paid Protection Money "The aforesaid operator has fur- t-ier testified that for nearly fwe years last past she paid protection "money of $100.00 per month. Thei? b no charsc againr-t Chief Morrk- that he received this protection n'oney. "Less thaji three months after I took office I wrote ihc Policr Coin- cciinec'.ion with !hc vice .situation ::i Geneva and I find that the Fo- IJcr Commission immediately issued an order to the Chief ol Police tc close the houses of ill fame and I find that they were immediately closed by him and that thry ar si ill tightly closed today. I was not thr only one deeply interested in this Yke condition because the cv;- CMICC before me shows that the Governor of the State of Now York crs. Chief Morris, Officer Ye;-g, Sergeants and Patrolmen of the police department have testified at length, ar.d contained in this testimony arc the reasons for the entire police si. nation. "I am convinced after a thorough reading of the evidence that at least three years ago Chief Morns and Olficer Yerg began to have differences in opinion in many respects r.nd this is admitted in the record brlorc me. I find that the attitude n:aintaiucd by each man towards the other was an improper one as their differences increased the re-suit was not only friction between themselves but a spreading of tli^ epidemic into the Police Department. Morris Lands Ycrg's Work "Officer Yerg testifies that lie was hampered by Chief Morris in carry- Administration of a Municipal Police Department. 1 Under the heading 'Departmental Divisions' the following statement is made by Chief Morris: " 'Policemen must be guided, not driven "" intelligent men cannot by driven. They can onli be guided and where most of our executives fail is in not recognizing thuir limitations.' Praises Morale of Force "I ask Chief Morris to refci to air 1 be guided by what is contained in hit book in cooperating with the police commission to the end that the morale of the Geneva police- force which force, in my opinion, h the finest and best in the country, bar none, be restored to the high point where it rightfully beiongs. "I find that some of the conduct of Chief Morris towards Officer Yerg was wrong and that to soino extent, the activities of the ollicer a.. a policeman and police investigator were curtailed. While Chief Morris may have considered his conduct prt of a disciplinary measure, yet. we must remember that Office. Yerg was being paid by taxpayers to perform his duties, and certainlj there must have been some other kind of discipline which could hav: been used at that time. I do nu' find that Chief Morris is not giving the city the quality of service to \i-hich it is entitled and I only find him guilty of misconduct as aforesaid. There is a great amount of test'. niony before me concerning the alleged one time existenc? ci stills, violations of the welfare department payment of protection money, interference with Grand Jury witnesses and the like. Mosi of this is alleged to have happened before m; time as Mayor. Regardless. I do nc" have the powers, as mayor, to deal v.'ith these matters, and I am, accordingly, turning the entire record over to the federal authorities, the governor of New York Stale ar/ the district attorney of Ontario action they Ccunty, for whatever may deem necessary. "Accordingly, on the record before me and under the Charter of the City of Geneva, it is my opinion that Chief Morris should not be dismissed from office, but, by reason of his guilt to parts of Charge No. 1, Charge No. 3 and Charge No. 10, as indicated. I order him suspended from office, without pay, for a period of three months, beginning July 12, 1939, at 9:00 A. M. and ending October 11, 1939, at midnight." The decision reached .n the charges filed against Yerg follow: "There are three charges in this case against Officer Yerg. Evidence of numerous witnesses was taken before me and the Police Commission and I find as follows: "Charge No. 1 -- The fact proven by the evidence in this charge do not warrant me in finding against Officer Yerg. "Charge No. 2 -- The evidence in support of this charge and the evidence in defense thereof lead me to believe that Officer Yerg maintained an attitude toward his superior officer which showed disrespect for him, and I so find. Officer Yerg's own testimony is that he lost respect for his Chief. The rules and regulations of the Geneva police department and good common sense require that a subordinate officer should respect his superior and obey his lawful orders. "The rules of our police department allow any officer no matter what his position, to invoke the aid of the police commission whenever he feels he has a just reason to. Officer Yerg should have done this long ago. I am confident that the present police commission having heard the evidence in this case is fully capable of adjusting any remaining differences which there may be in the Police Department and of formulating such rules and regulations that may be necessary to the end that such a situation never develops again. "I suggest that if ever in the future Officer Yerg has reason to believe that he is being imposed upon in the performance of his duties, that he immediately bring it to the attention of the Police Commission in,', out his duties. In defense Chief and I am quite sure that they will H *"«,.»«;*_ « H _ _ » _ _ ci j j^n - . *_ ' · ._.!;_ 4 «.!*. *+A4 *« 41«n Lwif t /*·** r\f -.«nd iner police commie-ion, r. writlci. statement of charges and that on April 11. 1939. he testified before the Mayor and denies every material allegation. Relationships Strained "Charge No. 10 -- Thai the month of August. 1936. ami after the incidents referred to in Charge No. 7 the relations between the Chief and Officer Yerg bocarr? more strained and Chief Morrii rolled Officer Yen; into his pnv-i,- office and asked him how he would nan the Chiefs department if he were running it. to which the Officer gave a detailed statement of things which he would do or would try to do for the best of the department. That early in 1937. «ie attitude of Chief Morris became more unfriendly, resulted in friction between them and with others and cooperation in the Police Department impossible and thai crn- ditions therein are bad and Uir force is not functioning properly. "That in 3937 Chief Morris issued an order curtailing the activities of Officer Yerg and so limiting. after I took office, known to me. wrote the Snirift" o. Ontario County and Chief Marris in regard to the existence o« these view. Officer Yerg reported foe | confining and restricting them tha Officer Yerg cannot give to the ~ facts to a member of tine Bar of Ontario County, asked his advice and counsel and accepted and fol- krwed the same, ing the money That in so recciv- a* aforesaid and paying it over to Officer Yerg. chief Morris was guilty of misconduct in and contact unbecoming a thereto CbtefMorris awl frwy DMlcilal al- City the quality of service to which it is entitled because of this.
