Jack Dunphy (a pseudonym of an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department) gives us an officer’s view of crime in Chicago from outside of Chicago. Chicago: Where Criminals No Longer Fear the Police:
It’s a shame that the public has to be reminded of this from time to time, but any cop can testify to this inescapable fact of police work: Where there is no punishment for criminal behavior, crime will flourish.
Nowhere has this been demonstrated with greater clarity lately than in Chicago…
Do you think his view is accurate?
