Crime, the Public, and the Crime Commission: A Critical Review of the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society

What is the appropriate set for the mind when it mulls the report of the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice? Should it be fine grind, as is the professor’s when he asks a student in his first class in law school to state the case of Regina v. Dudley & Stephens? Or should the running wheel be raised from the bedstone, as is so often the case when the professor turns to review the work of a colleague? While the latter may have the appeal of habit, there are, I think, three important reasons why one should not extend to this report the courtesies academe usually offers an individual author.
