Cleveland Police Patrolman Henry Mackey is shown following his scuffle with Euclid Beach Park Police on the night of the Euclid Beach Park Riot. Mackey and fellow CPD officer Lynn Coleman were both off duty when they got involved in an argument taking place in front of the dance hall, where black and white youths were challenging the park's segregationist policies. Coleman accidentally shot himself in the leg during the incident. The Euclid Beach Park Police officers were not charged. This photograph appeared in the Cleveland Call and Post and was not run in any other of the city's newspapers.
