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

By W. Durant C. | Go to book overview

HASTEN AND MULTIPLY TRIALS BY USING U. S. COMMISSIONERS
Fredd H. Dunham, United States Commissioner Batavia, New YorkLET the Amendment entirely alone.Reasons: It is carefully drawn and any tinkering with it is likely to disrupt and confuse honest lovers of our Constitution.Amend the National Prohibition Act in the following particulars:
1. Make the illegal purchase of liquors a misdemeanor punishable by a fine or imprisonment or both.

Reasons--Bootlegging is based almost solely upon bribery by those citizens who are willing to pay large prices for liquors smuggled into this country; to pay big prices for its transportation and sale to those unfortunate individuals whose appetites seem to justify them in offering prices for violations of the Prohibition Act which tempt men to smuggle, transport, and run speakeasies. It even reaches to those officials whose duty it is to enforce the law. At present it is perfectly legal to purchase liquor.

2. Make a prison sentence compulsory upon all courts for any save first offense, with right to suspension of same for first offense.

Reasons--Defendants are not deterred by fines but do greatly dread seeing the insides of jails; they prize their personal liberty and freedom of movement more than they do their money.

3. Compulsory padlocking of premises used in the sale of liquor after conviction of second offense affecting the same premises.

Reasons--This makes the landlord or owner just as anxious to see the law enforced as public officials.
