The police and the newspapers themselves


“[…] The police chief responded by saying that it has to be considered an impossibility that the police had known of the time and location of the dual; if such had been the case, then the police would have prevented it from happening at all. That the police could not have had any prior knowledge of the dual is shown by the fact that the newspapers themselves were not clear about the time of the dual. […]”
