“Albert T. Luster, an African American protestor who was attempting to integrate Cleveland’s Euclid Beach Park, was one victim of this brutality. When park police confronted Luster and told him to leave the park, in defiance he sat down on a bench and stated, “This place is getting worse than Nazi Germany.” The beating was immediate and severe: Luster ended the day in the hospital with multiple lacerations and bruises on his legs, arms, and the bottoms of his feet.3 What to Luster seemed an apt comparison was for Euclid’s hired guards an abomination.”
