Law Observance: Shall the People of the United States Uphold the Constitution?

By W. Durant C. | Go to book overview

"PAY AS IT GOES" ENFORCEMENT
Arthur R. Franklin, Chicago Special Agent, Bureau of ProhibitionTHE 18th Amendment to the Constitution and the National Prohibition Act, its enforcement measure, became laws of out land by vote of the people, as expressed through their duly elected representatives.Action contrary to this law is a crime and brands the offender as a criminal. There is no distinction between a criminal who violates the prohibition laws and a criminal who violates some other taw. Both must be treated the same and corrective measures applied. A criminal who violates one law continually has no respect for that law or for any other law.Crime is a career, lawless, but nevertheless a career, and the number of persons engaged in crime and the extent of their operations is dependent entirely on the steps society takes to protect itself and demonstrate to the criminal that his acts will not be suffered, but will be certainly punished.The most profitable of all crimes are violations of the National Prohibition Act.
Why Prohibition Law is Violated
The most important reasons for violation of the law by those engaged in the traffic commercially and for the general indifference on the part of otherwise law-abiding citizens are given in the order of their importance:
1. Failure of the National Prohibition Act to provide an adequate punishment for violations of the law.
2. Long delays in administration of justice.
3. Failure to exact taxes from violators based on illicit profits.
