Crimes and Criminals

 

482.              Crimes were committed to punish crimes, and crimes were committed to prevent crimes. The world has been filled with prisons and dungeons, with chains and whips, with crosses and gibbets, with thumbscrews and racks, with hangmen and heads-men–and yet these frightful means and instrumentalities have committed far more crimes than they have prevented . . . . Ignorance, filth, and poverty are the missionaries of crime. As long as dishonorable success outranks honest effort–as long as society bows and cringes before the great thieves, there will be little ones enough to fill the jails.

~Robert Ingersoll, Crimes Against Criminals
