Johnstown, PA
STRANGE HISTORY
On March 5, 1947, the Mayor of Johnstown, Pennsylvania requested that the city council "Demote the police Chief to Patrolman." They did. The Police chief walked up to the mayor and slugged him. LIFE's photographer caught the action. Later, the mayor sued the Chief for assault. So much for rule of law. (From Life Magazine website)
