'The greatest evil is not done in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paint. It is conceived and moved, seconded and carried and minuted, in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails, and smooth-shaven chins, who do not need to raise their voices. '

At a time when there are lots of hoo-haa about increasing crime rates in our country, alot of hissing sounds of complaints, dissatisfactions (perceived) from the public with our police, judiciary, government, and everything else in the system, wether with sufficient evidence or just mere hearsay or at worst, conspiracy theories....let me put my two sen worth of opinion to all posting the above quote. Written quite a long time ago but...hmmm is soo relevant today...lest we forget. Perhaps it should be a reminder to all of us that crime can happen anytime anywhere and not necessarily in places we have been attuned to think that they normally would occur....don't you think so?
