Diemshietz Attacked By Officers

Post by Karen on Sun 26 Sep 2010 - 3:30

THE JEWISH DEMONSTRATION.

Lewis Diemshietz, an unlicensed hawker, of 40, Berner-street, St. George's; Samuel Friedmann, cap-blocker, of 31, Weaver-street, Spitalfields; and Isaac Kozenbrodske, a machinist, of 40 Old Ford-road, Bethnal Green, were charged at the Thames police-court on Monday with being disorderly persons, and with being concerned together in assaulting Israel Sunshine, Isaac Solomons, Emanuel Snapper, and Emanuel Jacobs, of Berner-street, St. George's. They were further charged with assaulting Constables James Frost, 154 H, and George Harris, 269 H, while in the execution of their duty. They were also charged with assaulting Julius Barnett. - The disturbance arose out of the demonstration by the Jewish unemployed, which was organised by the Socialists on Saturday last. Israel Sunshine, 119, Wentworth-dwellings, Whitechapel, said that between two and three o'clock on Saturday afternoon he was walking down Berner-street. He saw some boys and girls knocking at the doors of the Socialist club. Suddenly some 20 or 30 men, armed with sticks, rushed out of the club and attacked every one indiscriminately. Friedmann said, "I will do for someone tonight, and don't care if I get 12 months for it." Witness was then struck in the mouth and about the body. Neither of the other prisoners struck him. Julius Barnett deposed that on Saturday afternoon he went down Berner-street. A number of Socialists rushed out of the club and attacked everyone. Friedmann struck witness with a broomstick. Emanuel Snapper stated that Friedmann was the ringleader of the Socialists. He saw Diemshietz strike the people. The disturbance arose through the Socialists marching to the Great Synagogue. Witness saw the police officers pulled into the Socialists' club, where they were assaulted. After hearing further evidence Mr. Saunders remanded the prisoners until Wednesday, and agreed to accept bail for their appearance.
On Wednesday Constantine Gallot, 82, Union-road, Rotherhithe, was called for the defence, and said he was in the club on Saturday afternoon when some 10 or 12 members were present. There was a crowd outside the club creating a disturbance. The prisoner Diemshietz asked the people to be quiet, and afterwards sent Kozenbrodske for the police. Subsequently witness heard a noise inside the club. He then saw Diemshietz with Frost and Harris, both of whom were in plain clothes. They struck Diemshietz in the back. The constables had pursued Diemshietz through the passage of the club into the yard. He saw the constable strike Diemshietz many times. Witness had no idea Frost and Harris were police officers, and when he saw Constable 239 H, who was in uniform, he asked him to protect Diemshietz from the two men, as he was afraid they would kill Diemshietz. Kozenbrodske spoke to Police constable 239 H, when the latter pushed him about. Kozenbrodske did not interfere with the police, and witness did not see a broom in either of the prisoners' possession. The wife of Diemshietz and the servant were the only women in the club. Diemshietz's wife tried to take her husband away from the police, but she did not pull the officers, one of whom pushed her away with his knee. Mr. Saunders said he had made up his mind that this was a case for the sessions, and he should commit the prisoners for trial. They would be allowed out on the same bail as before.

THAMES.

CHARGE AGAINST A CONSTABLE. - Constable Frost, 154 H, appeared to answer an adjourned summons, charging him with assaulting Louis Diemsheitz, steward of the International Working Men's club, Berner-street, St. George's. - On the 16th ult. there was a demonstration of unemployed, organized by the Socialists, and a disturbance took place in front of the club in Berner-street, during which Diemsheitz and others were arrested. They were afterwards charged at the Thames police-court and committed for trial. Later on a summons was obtained by Diemsheitz against Frost. - Mr. Saunders stopped the case, and said it would be unjust in the extreme to send it to the sessions. It had been thoroughly threshed out, and the case for the prosecution had completely broken down. The summons was dismissed.
