WATCH By Congressman
John W. Wydler
Nassau County Clerk Franklin H. Ornstein ( 1) presents the Freedom Shrine
Plaque to Sam Berger, President ( r) and Nick Daidone, Program Chairman
( c) of the Massapequa Exchange Club. Ornstein was the principal speaker at
the ceremonies at which the club received the Freedom Shrine Plaque. His
subject was passports and the role of American tourists in creating the proper
image of our country abroad.
The " Crime Explosion" is far
larger than the population explosion
in our nation. The F. B. I,
crime reports tha't from i960
to 1965 our population was up
8% and crime was up 46% with
crime the big gainer by a 6 to
We are all affected by this.
The President has called for
spending $ 350 million in federal
aid to state and local law
enforcement agencies over the
next two years. The question
is whether his " War on Crime"
is a program or just another
name for money.
Two factors indicate the
" Crime War" will have trouble
One is the failure of die federal
system in Washington, D. C.
The federal government is in
complete charge. Yet Washington
is the crime " capital" of
the nation. Robberies were high
in April of last year. This year
they are up over 100%. Law
enforcement is ineffective. There
is only one conviction for every
28 reported felonies. And yet,
when Congress passed a D. C.
Crime bill last year to deal
with the situation, the President
The record is far from reassuring.
Second, is the attitude of the
new Attorney General Ramsey
Clark. His measured responses
and " limited war promises" indicate
our domestic Viet Cong
will grow bolder. He describes
the increase in crime as " a
little bit." He has no program
to deal with the hard- core criminal.
Since 1963 the F. B. I, r e ports
that 75% of all persons
arrested have a record of 2 or
more previous arrests.
It is time to review the apparent
failure of our parole system.
It is time to review the
manner in which suspended sentences
are awarded to criminals.
The Courts of our nation
must function to protect society,
law and order.
Rehabilitation should be the
goal we work toward. But protection
of society is die goal
we must and should achieve at
The population explosion is a
problem of tomorrow. The crime
explosion is upon us now.
