King points out that members of some white clergy have commended the Birmingham police for maintaining order. King finds this ironic when the same police send their dogs to bite black citizens exercising their right to peaceful protest. He says that the police abuse old Negro women and young Negro girls. The Birmingham police slap and kick old Negro men and young Negro boys.
