1. Punishment alone will never succeed in putting an end to crime. Punishment will and does hold crime to a certain extent in check, but it will
never transform the delinquent population into honest citizens, for the
simple reason that it can only strike at the criminal and not at the causes
which have made him so. Economic prosperity, however widely diffused, will not extinguish crime.
2. Many people imagine that all the evils afflicting society spring from
want, but this is only partially true. A small number of crimes are
probably due to lack of food, but it has to be borne in mind that crime
would still remain a great evil even if there were no destitution and distress.
3. As a matter of fact easy circumstances have less influence on conduct than is generally believed; prosperity generates criminal inclinations as well as poverty, and on the whole the rich are just as much addicted to crime as the poor.
prosperity; poverty; (be) addicted to; progress of civilization; savage
tribes; a respect for person and property; eliminating crime; crime prevention; to reduce the risk; suspicious persons and activities.

4. The progress of civilization will not destroy crime. Many savage
tribes living under the most primitive forms of social life present a
greater respect for person and property than the most cultivated classes
in Europe and America. All that civilization has hitherto done is to
change the form in which crime is perpetrated; in substance it remains
the same.
5. Primary Schools will not accomplish much in eliminating crime. The
merely intellectual training received in these institutions has little influence upon conduct.
6. Crime prevention is recognizing that a crime risk exists and taking
some corrective action to eliminate or reduce that risk.
7. Reporting suspicious persons and activities, locking unoccupied
rooms, securing doors and windows and being aware of your surroundings are all important risk reduction strategies.

1. As to the best method of dealing with the actual criminal, the first
thing to be done is to know what sort of a person you are dealing with.
He must be carefully studied at first hand.
2. At present too much attention is paid to theoretical discussions respecting the various kinds of crime and punishment, while hardly any
account is taken of the persons who commit the crime and require the
3. Yet this is the most important point of all; the other is trivial in comparison with it. If crime is to be dealt with in a rational manner and not
on mere a priori grounds, our minds must be enlightened on such questions as the following: What is the Criminal? What are the chief causes
which have made him such? How are these causes to be got rid of or
neutralized? What is the effect of this or that kind of punishment?
4. These are the momentous problems; in comparison with these, all the
definitions respecting the difference between one crime and another are
mere dust in the balance.
5. There can be little doubt that a neglect of those considerations on the
part of many magistrates and judges, is at the root of the capricious sentences so often passed upon criminals. The effects of this neglect result
in the passing of sentences of too great severity on first offenders and
the young; and of too much lenience on hardened and habitual criminals.

6. When imprisonment has to be resorted to, it must be made a genuine
punishment if it is to exercise any effect as a deterrent. The moment a
prison is made a comfortable place to live in, it becomes useless as a
safeguard against the criminal classes. This is a fundamental principle.
7. But punishment, although an essential part of imprisonment, is not
its only purpose. Imprisonment should also be a preparation for liberty.
8. If a convicted man is as unfit for social life at the expiration of his
sentence as he was at the commencement of it, the prison has only accomplished half its work; it has satisfied the feeling of public vengeance, but it has failed to transform the offender into a useful citizen.
How to prepare the offender for liberty is a task of supreme difficulty;
in some cases it is an impossible task.

1. It is only within the present century, and in some countries it is only
within the present generation, that the possibility has arisen of conducting the study of criminal problems on anything approaching an exact
and scientific basis.
2. Before the introduction of a system of criminal statistics—a step
taken by most people within the memory of men still living—it was
impossible for civilized communities to ascertain with absolute accuracy whether crime was increasing or decreasing, or what transformation it was passing through in consequence of the social, political, and
economic changes constantly taking place in all highly organized societies.
3. It was also equally impossible to appreciate the effect of punishment
for good or evil on the criminal population. Justice had little or no data
to go upon; prisoners were sentenced in batches to the total punishment,
but no inquiry was made as to the result of these punishments on the
criminal classes or on the progress of crime.
4. It was considered sufficient to catch and punish the offender; and the
more offences seemed to increase—there was no sure method to learn if
they increased or not—the more severe the punishment became.

5. Justice worked in the dark, and was surrounded by the terrors of
darkness. What followed is easy to imagine; the criminal law of England reached a pitch of unparalleled barbarity, and within living memory laws were on the statute book by which a man might be hanged for
stealing property above the value of a shilling.
6. If a fairly accurate system of criminal statistics had existed, the data
contained in them would have reassured the nation and tempered the
severity of the law. Of criminal statistics it may be said in the first
place, that they act as an annual register for tabulating the amount of
danger to which society is exposed by the operations of lawless persons.
7. We are informed of the number of persons brought to trial for the
commitment of these crimes; of the nature of the offences with which
incriminated persons are charged, and of the length of sentence imposed on those who are sent to prison.

1. One important point must be mentioned on which criminal statistics
are almost entirely silent. The great sources of crime are the personal,
the social, and the economic conditions of the individuals who commit it.
2. Criminal statistics, to be exhaustive, ought to include not only the
amount of crime and the degrees of punishment awarded to offenders;
these statistics should also be considered in connection with the sources
from which crime undoubtedly springs. In this respect, our information,
so far as it comes to us through ordinary channels, is rather deficient.
3. This information is confined to data respecting the age, sex, and occupation of the offender. These data are very interesting, and very useful, as affording a glimpse of the sources from which the dark river of
delinquency takes its rise. But they are too fragmentary. They require to
be completed by the personal and social history of the criminal.
4. Crime is not necessarily a disease, but it resembles disease in this respect, that it will be impossible to wipe it out till an accurate diagnosis
has been made of the causes which produce it.
5. To punish crime is all very well; but punishment is not an absolute
remedy; its deterrent action is limited, and other methods besides punishment must be adopted if society wishes to gain the control over the
criminal population. What those methods should be can only be ascertained after the most searching preliminary inquiries into the main factors of crime.
6. It ought, therefore, to be a weighty part of the business of criminal
statistics to offer as full information as possible, not only respecting
crimes and punishments, but much more in regard of criminals. Every
criminal has a life history; that history is very frequently the explanation of his sinister career; it ought, therefore, to be classified, so that it
may be seen how far his descent and his surroundings have contributed
to make him what he is.
7. In the case of children sent to Reformatory Schools, the previous history of the child is always tabulated. Enquiries are made and registered
respecting the parents of the child; what country they belong to, what
sort of character they bear, whether they are honest and sober, whether
they have ever been in prison, what wages they earn, and whether the
child is legitimate or not.

1. We shall now inquire into the possibility of establishing some system
of International Statistics, whereby the volume of crime in one country
may be compared with that in another. At the present time it is extremely difficult to make any such comparison, and it is questionable if
it can ever be properly done.
2. The criminal law is different in different countries, and an act which
is perfectly harmless when committed in one part of Europe, is considered in another as a contravention of the law. Each country has also a
nomenclature of crime and methods of criminal procedure peculiar to
3. In each country the police are organized on a different principle, and
act in the execution of their duty on a different code of rules. In all
cases, for instance, of mendicancy, drunkenness, brawling, and disorder, the initiative rests practically with the police, and it depends almost
entirely on the instructions issued to the police whether such offences
shall figure largely or not in the statistics of crime.
4. A proof of this fact may be seen in the Report of the Commissioner
of Police of the Metropolis, for the year 1888. In the year 1886, the
number of persons convicted in the Metropolis of «Annoying male persons for the purpose of prostitution» was 3.233; in 1888, the number
was only 1.475. This enormous decrease in the course of two years may
not be due to a diminution of the offence, but to a change in the attitude
of the police.
7. These examples will be sufficient to show what an immense power
the police have in regulating the volume of certain classes of offences.
In some countries they are called upon to exercise this power in the direction of stringency; in other countries it is exercised in the direction
of leniency and in the same country its exercise varies according to the
views of those who control the action of the police.

5. Again, in the year 1887, the Metropolitan police arrested 4,556 persons under the provisions of the Vagrant and Poor Law Acts; but in the
year 1888, the number arrested by the same body under the same acts
amounted to 7,052. It is perfectly obvious that this vast increase of arrested people number was not owing to a corresponding increase in the
number of rogues, beggars, and vagrants; it was principally owing to
the increased stringency with which the Metropolitan police carried out
the provisions of the Vagrant and Poor Law Acts.
6. An absolute proof of the correctness of this statement is the fact that
throughout the whole of England there was a decrease in the number of
persons proceeded against in accordance with these acts.
Text 6
1. In the case of the more serious offences against person and property,
the initiative of putting the law in motion rests chiefly with the injured
individual. The action of the individual in this respect depends to a
large extent on the customs of the country.
2. In some countries the injured person, instead of putting the law in
motion against an offender, takes the matter in his own hands, and administers the wild justice of revenge. Great differences of opinion also
exist among different nations as to the gravity of certain offences.
3. Among some people there is a far greater reluctance than there is
among others to appeal to the law. Murder is perhaps the only crime on
which there exists a consensus of opinion among civilized communities; and even with regard to this offence it is impossible to overcome
all the judicial and statistical difficulties which stand in the way of an
international comparison.
4. In spite, however, of the fact that the amount of crime committed in
civilized countries cannot be subjected to exact comparison, there are
various points on which the international statistics of crime are able to
render valuable service. It is important, for instance, to see in what relation crime in different communities stands to age, sex, climate, temperature, race, education, religion, occupation, home and social surroundings.
5. If we find, for example, an abnormal development of crime taking
place in a given country at a certain period of life, or in certain social
circumstances, and if we do not discover the same abnormal development taking place in other countries at a similar period of life, or in a
similar social stratum, we ought at once to come to the conclusion that
there is some extraordinary cause at work peculiar to the country which
is producing an unusually high total of crime.
6. If, on the other hand, we find that certain kinds of crime are increasing
or decreasing in all countries at the same time, we may be perfectly sure
that the increase or decrease is brought about by the same set of causes.
7. And whether those causes are war, political movements, commercial
prosperity, or depression, the community which first escapes from them
will also be the first to show it in the annual statistics of crime. In these
and many other ways international statistics are of the greatest utility.

1. The figures contained in criminal statistics cannot be used as a means
of ascertaining the position which belongs to each nation respectively
in the scale of morality. Nor is the moral progress of a nation to be
measured solely by an apparent decay of crime.
2. On the contrary, an increase in the amount of crime may be the direct
result of a moral advance in the average sentiments of the community.
The passing of the Elementary Education Act of 1870 and of the
Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885 have added considerably to the
number of persons brought before the criminal courts and eventually
committed to prison.
3. But an increase of the prison population due to these causes is no
proof that the country is deteriorating morally. It will be regarded by
many persons as a proof that the country has improved, for it is now
demanding a higher standard of conduct from the ordinary citizen than
it demanded twenty years ago.
4. On the other hand, a decrease in the official statistics of crime may
be a proof that the moral sentiments of a nation are degenerating. It
may be a proof that the laws are ceasing to be an effective protection to
the citizen, and that society becomes a victim of the forces of anarchy
and crime.
5. It is, therefore, impossible by looking only at the bare figures contained in criminal statistics, to say whether a community is growing
better or worse. Before any conclusions can be formed on these matters,
either one way or the other, we must go behind the figures, and look at
them in the light of the social, political and industrial developments taking place in the society to which these figures refer.
that legislative assemblies are becoming more and more inclined to
pass such laws; so long as this is the case it is vain to hope for a decrease in the annual amount of crime.

6. In this connection, it may not be amiss to point out that the present
tendency of legislation is bound to produce more crime. All law is by
its nature coercive, but so long as the coercion is confined within a limited area, or can only come into operation at rare intervals, it produces
comparatively little effect on the whole volume of crime.
7. When, however, a law is passed affecting every member of the
community every day of his life, such a law is certain to increase the
population of our prisons. A marked characteristic of the present time is
Text 8
1. A man, for instance, goes to prison for breaking some municipal bylaw; he comes out of it as a friend and associate of habitual criminals;
and the ultimate result of the bylaw is to transform a comparatively
harmless member of society into a dangerous thief or house-breaker.
2. One person of this character is a greater menace to society than a
hundred offenders against municipal regulations, and the present system of law-making undoubtedly helps to multiply this class of men.
3. One of the leading principles of all wise legislation should be keeping the population out of prison; but the direct result of many recent enactments, both in this country and abroad, is to drive them into it; and it
may be taken as an axiom that the more the functions of Government
are extended, the greater will be the amount of crime.
4. What is called «the movement» of crime? Is its total volume increasing or decreasing in the principal civilized countries of the world? On
this point there is some diversity of view, but most of the principal authorities in Europe and America are of opinion that crime is on the increase.
5. In the United States, crime is steadily increasing, and it is increasing
faster than the growth of the population. Nearly all the chief statisticians abroad tell the same tale with respect to the growth of crime on
the Continent.

6. Dr. Mischler of Vienna, and Professor von Liszt of Marburg draw a
deplorable picture of the increase of crime in Germany. They say that
fifteen million persons have been convicted by the German criminal
courts within the last ten years; and the outlook for the future is sombre
in the last degree. In France, the criminal problem is just as formidable
and perplexing as it is in Germany. Crime has increased 133 % within
the last half century, and is still steadily rising.
7. In Australia, we find that even in the Antipodes, which are not vexed
to the same extent as Europe with social and economic difficulties,
crime is persistently raising its head, and although it does not increase
quite as rapidly as the population, it is nevertheless a more menacing
danger among the Victorian colonists than it is at home.
Text 9
1. The decrease in the daily average of persons in prison may be accounted for in two ways. It may be shown that although the number of
people committed to prison is on the increase, the nature of the offences
for which these people are convicted is not so grave.
2. Or, in the second place, it may be shown that, although the crimes
committed now are equally serious with those committed twenty years
ago, the magistrates and judges are adopting a more lenient line of action, and are inflicting shorter sentences after a conviction. Let us for a
moment consider the proposition that crime is not so grave now as it
was twenty years ago.
3. In order to arrive at a fairly accurate conclusion on this matter, we
have only to look at the number of offences of a serious nature reported
to the police. Comparing the number of cases of murder, attempts to
murder, manslaughter, shooting at, stabbing and wounding, and adding
to these offences the crimes of burglary, housebreaking, robbery, and
arson—comparing all these cases reported to the police for the five
years 1870–1874, with offences of a like character reported in the five
years 1884–1888, we find that the proportion of grave offences to the
population was, in many cases, as great in the latter period as in the
4. This shows clearly that crime, while it is increasing in extent, is not
materially decreasing in seriousness; and the chief reason the prison
population exhibits a smaller daily average is to be found in the fact
that judges are now pronouncing shorter sentences than was the custom
twenty years ago.
5. We are not left in the dark upon this point; the judges themselves
frequently inform the public that they have taken to shortening the
terms of imprisonment. The extent to which sentences have been shortened within the last twenty years can easily be ascertained the statistics.
7. If it is a serious offence, or if the criminal be a habitual offender, he
now receives eighteen months' imprisonment, whereas he used to receive five years' penal servitude. As far as most judges and magistrates
are concerned, sentences of imprisonment have decreased in recent
years more than twenty-six percent.

6. A comparison between these two periods shows that the length of
imprisonment has decreased twenty-six percent. In other words,
whereas a man used to receive a sentence of twelve months' imprisonment, he now receives a sentence of nine months; and whereas he used
to get a sentence of one month, he now gets twenty-one days.

1. We have now arrived at the conclusion that crime is just as serious in
its character as it was twenty years ago, and that it is growing in dimensions year by year; the next point to be considered is, the relation in
which crime stands to the population. Crime may be increasing, but the
population may be multiplying faster than the growth of crime.
2. Is this the condition of things in England at the present day? We have
seen that the criminal classes are increasing much faster than the
growth of population in France and the United States. Is England in a
better position in this respect than these two countries?
3. Nowadays there is one conviction to about every fifty inhabitants,
and the proportion of convictions to the population was very much the
same twenty years ago.
4. If we had no Industrial and Reformatory institutions for the detention
of criminal and quasi-criminal offenders among the young, England, as
well as other countries, would have to make the admission that crime
was not only increasing in the midst, but that it was increasing faster
than the growth of population.
5. The number of juveniles in these institutions has more than trebled
since 1868 and it is unquestionable that if these youthful offenders were
not confined there, a large proportion of them would immediately begin
to swell the ranks of crime. That crime in England is not making more
rapid strides than the growth of population, is almost entirely to be attributed to the action of these schools.
6. We shall now look at another aspect of the criminal question, and
that is its cost. Crime is not merely a danger to the community; it is
likewise a vast expense; and there is no country in Europe where it does
not constitute a tremendous drain upon the national resources. Owing to

more than seven and a half million sterling. The exact amount of this

society; the individual factors are a class of attributes inherent in the individual, such as descent, sex, age, bodily and mental characteristics.
1. Apart from its danger to the community, the annual loss of money
which the existence of crime entails is a most serious consideration. It
is equal to a tenth of the national expenditure, and every few years
amounts to as much as the cost of a big European war.
2. It is tempting to speculate on the admirable uses to which the capital
consumed by crime might be devoted, if it were free for beneficent purposes. How easy it would be for many schemes, which is now in the region of dreamland, to be immediately realized.
3. Unhappily, it is almost as vain to look forward to the abolition of
crime as it is to look forward to the cessation of war. At the present
moment the latter event, however improbable, is more likely to happen
than the former.
4. War has ceased to be a normal condition of things in the comity of
nations; it has become a transitory incident; but crime, which means
war within the nation, is still far from being a passing incident; on the
contrary, a conflict between the forces of moral order and social anarchy is going on continually; and, at present, there is not the faintest
prospect of its coming to an end.
5. What is the cause of this state of warfare within society? Which of
the combatants is to blame? Or is the blame to be laid equally on the
shoulders of both? In other words, are the conditions in which men live
together in society of such a nature that crime is certain to flow from
them; and is crime simply a reaction against the iniquity of existing social arrangements?

6. Or, on the other hand, does crime spring from the individual and his
surroundings; and is it the product of forces over which society has little or no control? These are questions which cannot be answered offhand, they involve considerations of a most complicated character, and
it is only after a careful examination of all the factors responsible for
crime that a true solution can possibly be arrived at.
7. These factors are divisible into three great categories—cosmical, social, and individual. The cosmical factors of crime are climate and the
variations of temperature; the social factors are the political, economic
and moral conditions in the midst of which man lives as a member of
Text 12
1. In testing the opinions respecting the influence of climate upon
crime, we are obliged, to some extent, to have recourse to international
statistics. But these statistics, as has already been pointed out, owing to
the diversity of customs, laws, criminal procedure, and so on, do not
easily admit of comparison.
2. So much is this the case that we shall not make the attempt as far as
these statistics have reference to crimes against property. In this field
no satisfactory result can be obtained. The same remark holds good in
relation to all offences against the person, with the exception of homicide.
3. This, undoubtedly, is an important exception; and it arises from the
fact that there is a greater consensus of opinions among civilized communities respecting the gravity of homicide than exists with regard to
any other form of crime. Murder in all its degrees is a crime which immediately causes a profound commotion; it is easy to recognize; it is more
likely than any other offence to come to the ears of the authorities.
4. For these reasons this crime lends itself most readily to international
comparison; nevertheless, differences of judicial procedure, legal nomenclature, and different methods of classification stand in the way of
making the comparison absolutely accurate. The results of such a comparison are of exceptional value, and go a long way to determine the
question of the effect of climate upon crimes of blood.

5. Assuming, then, with these reservations, that such a comparison can
be instituted, let us see to what extent murder including wilful murder,
manslaughter, and infanticide, prevails in the various countries of
Europe. In ordinary circumstances this task would be a laborious one,
entailing a minute and careful examination of the criminal statistics and
procedure of many nations.
6. According to Dr. Bosco: «As the composition of the population, with
respect to age, varies in different countries, and as it has to be remembered that all the population under ten years of age has no share, at least
under normal conditions, in the crime of murder, it has seemed to me a
more exact method to calculate the proportion of murders to the inhabitants who are over ten years of age, than to include the total population.”
Text 13
convictions absolutely prove that the machinery of the criminal law is
more effective in the one country than in the other.
1. Italy, Spain and Hungary head the list in the proportion of murders to
the population. In Italy, out of every 100,000 persons over ten years of
age, eleven are annually convicted of murder in one or other of its
forms; in Spain eight are convicted of the same offence, and in Hungary
five are convicted.
7. To take another instance, more persons are annually tried for murder
in Ireland than in France; but more cases of conviction are recorded in
France than in Ireland. These contrasts show that, while the French are
less addicted to this grave offence than the Irish, they are more anxious
to secure its detection, and that a greater body of public opinion is on
the side of law in France than in Ireland.
2. These three countries are conspicuously ahead of all the others to
which our table refers. Austria and Belgium follow at a long distance
with two convictions in round numbers to every 100,000 inhabitants
over ten. France, Ireland and Germany come next with one conviction
and a considerable fraction to every 100,000 persons over ten; England,
Scotland and Holland stand at the bottom of the list with between seven
and eight persons convicted of murder to every one million of inhabitants over ten.
3. In order to understand the full meaning of these figures we must take
one more stop and compare the numbers convicted with the numbers
tried. In some countries very few convictions may take place in proportion to the number accused, while in other countries the proportion may
be very considerable.
4. In other words, in order to arrive at an approximate estimate of the
amount of murders perpetrated in a country, we must consider how
many cases of murder have been tried in the course of the year. It very
seldom happens that a person is tried for this offence when no murder
has been committed; and it may, therefore, be assumed that the crime
has taken place when a man stands his trial for it.
5. Estimating then the prevalence of murder in the various countries by
trials, rather than convictions, it will be found that Germany, with a
much larger percentage of convictions than England, has just as few
cases of murder for trial. And the reason the number of convictions, as
between the two nations, differs, arises from the fact that a prisoner's
chance of acquittal in England is a hundred per cent greater than it is in

6. It is not, therefore, accurate to assume that a greater number of murders are committed in Germany than in England because a greater
number of persons are annually convicted of this crime; all that these
Text 14
1. While thus showing that the number of trials for murder is the best
test of the prevalence of this offence, it is not meant that the test is in all
respects indisputable. At most it is merely approximate.
2. One obstacle in the way of its entire accuracy consists in the circumstance that the proportion of persons tried, as compared with the
amount of crime committed, is in no two countries precisely the same.
In France, for instance, more murders are perpetrated, for which no one is
ultimately tried, than in Italy or in England; that is to say, a murderer runs
more risk of being placed in the dock in this country than in France.
3. But the difference between the two countries is again to a great extent adjusted by the fact that once a man is placed in the dock in France
he has far less chance of being acquitted than if he were tried according
to English law.
4. On the whole, therefore, it may be assumed that the international statistics of trials, corrected when necessary by the international statistics
of convictions, present a tolerably accurate idea of the extent to which
the crime of murder prevails among the nationalities of Europe. In any
case these figures will go some way towards helping us to see whether
climatic conditions have any influence upon the amount of crime. This
we shall now inquire into this.
5. On looking at the isotherms for the year it will be observed that the
average temperature of Italy and Spain is ten degrees higher than the
average temperature of England. On the other hand, the average temperature of Hungary is very much the same as the average temperature
of this country; but Hungary is at the same time exposed too much
greater extremes of climate than England.
7. In Italy murders are, at least, ten times as numerous as in England; in
Spain they are seven times as numerous; the chief cause of this condition of things is said to be the serious difference of temperature. In the
United States of America there are more crimes of blood in the South
than in the North; the main explanation of this difference is said to be
that the climate of the South is much hotter than the climate of the

6. In winter it is nearly ten degrees colder than England, while in summer it is as hot as Spain. The advocates of the direct effect of climate
upon crime contend that account must be taken not merely of the degree of temperature, but also of the variations of temperature to which a
region is exposed. According to this theory one of the principal reasons
the crime of murder is, at least, fourfold higher in Hungary than in England, is to be found in the violent oscillations of temperature in Hungary as compared with England.

development, democratic institutions and good governance throughout
much of the world, including southern Africa.
2. Criminal justice and law enforcement solutions – rather than a
greater emphasis on prevention – are the most typical national response
for a host of reasons.
3. The causal complexities of crime are a disincentive to adopt prevention policies because impact and attribution can be difficult to measure
and because real improvement may not be felt during short terms in political office.

1. We have now arrived at the conclusion that crime is just as serious in
its character as it was twenty years ago, and that it is growing in dimensions year by year; the next point to be considered is, the relation in
which crime stands to the population. Crime may be increasing, but the
population may be multiplying faster than the growth of crime.
2. We have seen that the criminal classes are increasing much faster
than the growth of population in France and the United States. Is England in a better position in this respect than these two countries?
3. At present there is one conviction to about every fifty inhabitants,
and the proportion of convictions to the population was very much the
same twenty years ago. If we remember the immense development that
has taken place in the industrial school system within the last twenty
years, we`ll arrive at the conclusion that the criminal classes in this
country still keep pace with the annual growth of population.

community; it is likewise a considerable expense; and there is no country in Europe where it does not constitute the biggest drain upon the national resources.

crime is almost impossible, but the police force alone costs the country
10 million pounds annually.

1. Roman law is the legal system of ancient Rome, including Roman
Military Jurisdiction and the legal developments spanning over a thousand years of jurisprudence, from the 12 Tables (c. 449 BC), to the
Corpus Juris Civilis (AD 529) ordered by Eastern Roman emperor
Justinian I.
2. The historical importance of Roman law is reflected by the continued
use of Latin legal terminology in legal systems influenced by it.
3. After the dissolution of the Western Roman Empire, the Justinian
Code remained in effect in the Eastern Empire known in the modern era
as the Byzantine Empire (331–1453). From the 7th century onward, the
legal language in the East was Greek.
4. «Roman law» also denotes the legal system applied in most of
Western Europe until the end of the 18th century.
5. In Germany, Roman law practice remained in place longer under the
Holy Roman Empire (963–1806). Roman law thus served as a basis for
legal practice throughout Western continental Europe, as well as in
most former colonies of these European nations, including Latin America, and also in Ethiopia.

Angeles County Superior Court in California, the trial spanning from
the jury's swearing-in on November 2, 1994, to opening statements on
January 24, 1995, to a verdict on October 3, 1995.
2. The former professional football star and actor O. J. Simpson was
tried on two counts of murder after the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole
Brown Simpson, and waiter Ronald Lyle Goldman, in June 1994. The
case has been described as the most publicized criminal trial in American history.

3. Simpson was acquitted after a trial that had lasted more than eight
months. Simpson hired a high-profile defense team. Los Angeles
County believed Simpson`s case to be a solid prosecution one. Nevertheless, the lawyers were able to persuade the jurors that there was a
reasonable doubt about the DNA evidence (a relatively new form of
evidence in trials at the time) including that the blood-sample evidence
had allegedly been mishandled by lab scientists and technicians – and
about the circumstances surrounding other exhibits.
4. The defense team also alleged other misconduct by the Los Angeles
Police Department. Simpson's celebrity and the lengthy televised trial
riveted national attention on the so-called «Trial of the Century«.
5. By the end of the criminal trial, national surveys showed the most
dramatic differences in the assessment of Simpson's guilt between black
and white Americans.
6. Later, both the Brown and Goldman families sued Simpson for damages in a civil trial that came to a total of $40 million. On February 6,
1997, a jury unanimously found there was an evidence preponderance
to hold Simpson liable for damages in the wrongful death of Goldman
and battery of Brown.
