Did any of you hear about the bank robbery we had in Monterey, this past Tuesday? It caught my attention because the bank is just around the corner from my office.

Not much of a story, really. Man with a gun. Demanded money. Took it and ran off.

Certainly, the bank is cooperating with law enforcement to see that the crook gets caught. The bank may even tighten or otherwise alter their security procedures.

And meanwhile there will be people who will sympathize with the bank robber. Some will claim that the bank, after all, had it coming. With all that money, it was only a matter of time someone decided to take it.

There will be those who will say that retaliation takes us in the wrong direction. Because what we really need, here, is an understanding of the motives of the robber. After all, he’s just a victim of an oppressive system—American capitalism. And the bank is nothing but a cruel symbol of greed and exploitation.

You see, If we’re going to put an end to crime in America, we need to begin addressing the needs of criminals in this country.

Thank you.

Regulations are made by federal and state agencies. Check your Constitution. You shouldn’t be able to create, much less enforce laws that haven’t been voted on by Congress. Yet we do it all the time.
