RADIO PROGRAM NO. 441 - Helping Prevent Crime

[The participants are Parker Thomas and Rob McKinnon.]

McKinnon: Most of us would like to help prevent crime and hold it in check. We do what we can to help support the fight against poverty and injustice, the roots of crime in general. But many of us feel that there's just not much else we can do.

Thomas: Well, in a very real way there is. As important as is the help we provide in overall efforts to eliminate injustice and other conditions breeding crime, as important as is our support of law enforcement agencies, as willing as we may be to reach out to stop an act of violence, there is more that we can do.
