"I said I did not represent an angel, I meant just this: I condemn the defendant Buchalter's past life with as great vehemence as I possess. I am not in sympathy with his activities in the past I condemn the vicious circle which contrived those people to domineer unions the racketeers Weinstein and Katz. I condemn them with all the strength I have. It is they who prey upon innocent workmen in this city. I condemn the manufacturers and employers who did not complain to the authorities so that they could put an end to this vicious practice of preying upon labor. But they did not complain not because they were afraid because some of them hoped, by yielding to the racketeers of the industry, that they would gain an economic or financial advantage over their competitors

Buchalter, who was being looked for by Dewey as king of the flour racket and king of the crime racket he was looked for by the Government he had so many charges hurled against him that everybody in this universe was searching for him, that he would worry about a possible misdemeanor? I say, `Possible misdemeanor' at the hands of Rosen. What proof is there in this case by anyone that Rosen was roaming the streets of Brownsville threatening to go to Dewey? What could he tell Dewey? Nothing. Because, in telling Dewey that four years ago Buchalter drove him out of business, I take it he would also have to tell Dewey the good traits of Buchalter that he got him a job that he tried to get him another job that he effectuated transfers and that he got him $100 and $125 a week. What was there that Buchalter had to fear at the hands of Rosen with thousands of complaints running to Dewey in extortion totaling a half a million dollars? Would he worry about Rosen, an ordinary poor truck driver?"

In all honesty he probably wouldn't but then we are left to ask what or who, then was the source of Lepke's trouble?
