Famous quotes containing the word criminal:

    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    No political party can ever make prohibition effective. A political party implies an adverse, an opposing, political party. To enforce criminal statutes implies substantial unanimity in the community. This is the result of the jury system. Hence the futility of party prohibition.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Squeeze human nature into the straitjacket of criminal justice and crime will appear.
    Karl Kraus (1874–1936)
