As the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and I Administration (the National Crime Commission) noted in its jfects not considered correctable report early in 1967: i by normal surgery "A skid-row drunk lying in a gutter is crime. So is the killing of an unfaithful wife. A Cosa Nostra conspiracy to bribe public officials is crime. So is a strongarm robbery by a 15-year-old boy. The embezzlement of a corporation's funds by an executive is crime. So is the possession of marijuana cigarettes by a student. These crimes can no, more be lumped together for the purposes of analysis than can measles and schizophrenia, or lung cancer and a broken ankle," However it is defined or analyzed, the public knows only that crime has reached alarming proportions in "the United States. According to the FBI's latest Uniform Crime Reports, crime increased by 19 per cent in the tlrsjt*njne t months of 1968. But it is imperative that we*fenoW just'what is being reported. The UCR, a compilation of statistics from local and state police agencies, does not attempt to record the incidence of every kind of crime. It deals mainly with "Index" crimes, seven serious offenses ; mat the FBI believes are reliable indicators of the crime situation ! as a whole. Three of the seven—nonnegligent homicides, forcible rape • and aggravated assault—are crimes against persons. Three others —burglary, larceny of over $50 and auto theft—are crimes against property. One—robbery—is both. Here, too, the FBI can report only offenses known to the police. The Crime Commission estimates that three to 10 times as many offenses go unreported as are reported, especially crimes ! against property. Another highly significant thing about UCR figures, says Robert Rice, who served as a staff member of the commission, is that violent crimes, including robberies, were only 13 per cent of all offenses known to the police between 1960 ond 1966. And of these crime* of violence, he writes in "The Challenge of Crime," a Public Affairs Pamphlet, most involved a prior victim-offender relationship. In almost three-quarters of all reported murders in 1966, the victims and the offenders knrw etch other. In more than a quartpr of the cases, they were within families. In another category entirely are non-Index crimes, a veritable grab bag of offenses, some of which might he caller] "crimes by definition." For instance, of nearly five million arrests in 1966, almost a million ;-nd a half were for drunkenness. Disorderly conduct accounted for 520,000 arrests and vagrancy for 104,000. It is also necessary to an.-lyze crime, n r >\ jVnrri the stand- j point of numbers and types, but from the angles of environment, the efficiency of our police, the ou.-l' y nf jus-ic- in our courts, the shortcomings of our corrpcl ; o^n! i^'liiutions an.-", indeed, the mor-I tone of society itself before we can begin to understand j ^j so ln what crime is, why it is so prevalc-nt and hew it can be combated. ; Minister 10:41 a.m. — Command module enters earth atmosphere. 10:51 a.m.—Splashdown 1,000 miles south of Hawaii in Pacific.
