While the media frenzy of the 1968 Democratic National Convention centered foremost around Hubert Humphrey’s nomination to serve as the party’s presidential candidate, with the lesser-known senator Edmund Muskie as his running mate, it also focused on the turbulent demonstrations that enveloped the convention venue. Chicago’s mayor Richard J. Daley, “the last of America’s big-city bosses,” had prepared for the arrival of thousands of anti-war demonstrators by assembling a security detail of 23,000 police, national guardsmen, and federal troops to maintain order. What shocked
television viewers worldwide was the “breakdown of police discipline” as “they flailed blindly,” with billy clubs, “into the crowd of some 3,000 then ranged onto the sidewalks to attack onlookers.” Daley, whose image is seen in the background of this cover, defended his city’s response by noting that no one was killed.
Aunque el frenesí mediático que provocó la Convención Nacional Demócrata de 1968 se centró mayormente en la nominación de Hubert Humphrey como candidato presidencial, con el menos conocido senador Edmund Muskie como compañero de papeleta, también acapararon la atención las turbulentas manifestaciones que rodearon la sede de la convención. El alcalde de Chicago, Richard J. Daley, “el último gran jefe” entre los alcaldes de las grandes ciudades del país, se preparó para la llegada de miles de manifestantes antibélicos reuniendo un contin- gente de 23,000 policías, guardias nacionales y tropas federales para mantener el orden. Lo que consternó a los televidentes de todo el mundo fue el “colapso de la disciplina policíaca” mientras los oficiales “repartían golpes a ciegas” con sus macanas “entre unos 3,000 manifestantes para luego atacar a los que observaban desde las aceras”. Daley, cuya imagen vemos al fondo en esta portada, defendió la actuación de sus oficiales alegando que no hubo muertos.
