(Studio) Mayor Richard Daley holds news conference
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Chicago, Illinois) Daley speaks of abuse all police receive. [DALEY - cites ways police treated in US. No 1 killed in Chicago. Says all he does is his duty under oath of office. No 1 in his administration tolerates brutality. Ready to meet terrorists who create incidents like 1 here. Should be exposed; hope we can get press cooperation. Amazed at distorted picture of convention media sent out.] [Alderman Leon DESPRES - calls Daley report 1-sided, biased, partisan, prejudiced and selective. If didn't have eye-witnesses or films of convention violence, we wouldn't know what happened from report It's defense of violence and incitement to more violence and obscenity. It condones lawlessness of law enforcement.] Yippies burn copies of report
