New York to Battle Gangsters with Armored Motorbikes and Shot Guns (Nov, 1931)

New York to Battle Gangsters with Armored Motorbikes and Shot Guns

NEW YORK’S most dramatic gesture in its recent declaration of war-to-the-last-ditch on gangsters is the adoption by the police force of the armored motorbike and the sawed-off repeating shotgun. Squadrons of these war-like motorbikes will patrol the streets to strike terror into the hearts of the criminals who have turned New York into a veritable No-man’s land, raking the streets with submachine gun fire and cutting down everybody who happens to get in the way.

To expedite the capture of gangsters, New York police officials are planning to equip all squad- cars and motorbikes with shortwave sending and receiving sets.

    But as we all know, that battle was won by CPA with (as far as I know) un-armored adding machines.
