Chapter Summary

Crime is a crime is a crime; a constant assault on human rights. Crime, like sin, has always been with us, but, whereas sin emerges from moral sphere and is personal, crime is a breach of law and an attack not only on individual but also on peace and harmony of society. The prevention and detection of crime is in the hands of the police. It would be wrong to blame the agencies involved-police, prison, probation, welfare, courts. They do their best within the confines of present procedures. This chapter sets out proposals for a radical change of approach. It analyses why people commit crimes, and puts forward a number of reasons. The chapter deals with the police and judicial process. Lastly, it sets out some new procedures which author believes can have a positive effect in deterring crime, and assessing those who commit crimes with appropriate sanctions.
