The Costs of Crime::By Thomas Sowell

Insightful. I wonder what the cost of sterilizing all the rapists would be? Or the cost of paying all the vicitims?

Townhall.com::The Costs of Crime::By Thomas Sowell: "it is hardly surprising that a recent New York Times editorial has returned to a familiar theme among those on the left, on both sides of the Atlantic, with its lament that 'incarceration rates have continued to rise while crime rates have fallen.'

Back in 1997, New York Times writer Fox Butterfield expressed the same lament under the headline, 'Crime Keeps on Falling, But Prisons Keep on Filling.' Then, as now, liberals seemed to find it puzzling that crime rates go down when more criminals are put behind bars."
