(Page 3 of 3)
- Emma Goldman: “San Diego had always enjoyed considerable freedom of speech” until “the city fathers passed an ordinance doing away with the custom.”
- Goldman: “Ben’s case was but one of many since the struggle in San Diego had begun, but it helped to focus greater attention on the scene of savagery.”
- Jim Miller: “The vigilantes were not aberrations in San Diego’s otherwise tolerant hegemony, but rather an expression of the city’s essential character.”
