(Testimony of Warren H. Burroughs)

Mr. Ball.
What else did you hear?
Mr. Burroughs.
That's about all.
Mr. Ball.
Tell me what his appearance was as they brought him out?
Mr. Burroughs.
Well, he didn't seem---he seemed like he was mad at everybody.
Mr. Ball.
He was?
Mr. Burroughs.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Did he shout in a loud voice?
Mr. Burroughs.
Yes; like "I demand my rights" [witness holding up both above his head.]
Mr. Ball.
Anything else?
Mr. Burroughs.
Well, they carried him out to the car and there was a mob of people out there mere people than I have ever seen before and they put him in the car and went off.
Mr. Ball.
How many officers were with him? When you saw them take him from the theatre?
Mr. Burroughs.
I believe about three or four.
Mr. Ball.
Did any of them have ahold of him?
Mr. Burroughs.
Yes; they had ahold of him----they were dragging him out----I mean., they had ahold of him---two on each side.
Mr. Ball.
Was he walking or were they dragging him?
Mr. Burroughs.
He was walking, but he was kind of urged on out the door into the car.
Mr. Ball.
Was he handcuffed?
Mr. Burroughs.
Yes.
Mr. Ball.
Were his hands behind him or in front of him?
Mr. Burroughs.
They were behind him.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever see a police officer strike him?
Mr. Burroughs.
No.
Mr. Ball.
Did you see a police officer with his arm around the neck of this man, who arrested him?
Mr. Burroughs.
I don't believe so.
Mr. Ball.
Did you ever see a police officer strike this man with the butt of a shotgun?
Mr. Burroughs.
No, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Were any of the officers in the theatre armed with shotguns?
Mr. Burroughs.
No, sir; I don't believe so.
Mr. Ball.
I think that's all, Mr. Burroughs, and this will be written up and you can go down and sign it if you wish, or you can waive your signature right now. Which do you prefer?
Mr. Burroughs.
I want to come down and sign it.
Mr. Ball.
All right. You will be notified to come down and you can read it over and sign it. Thank you very much for coming down here.
Mr. Burroughs.
Thank you. I hope I helped you some.
Mr. Ball.
Yes; I hope you did, too.
Mr. Burroughs.
I'll see you later.
Mr. Ball.
All right. Goodby.
