Title File 032
Transcript nist strategy to convert the courtroom into a forum to discredit the judicial processes. For the most part, the technique of the smear has been devised by Communist lawyers, skilled in concealing foul and despicable acts behind the Fifth Amendment. They employ tactics which even the unscrupulous underworld "mouthpiece'' would frown upon as improper. The Communist owes no allegiance to God, to his family or to his country. He owes it only to the party and will do anything the party commands him to do. He will lie, cheat, steal or do anything for the Communist cause. The inroads that Communist propaganda have made in influencing law- abiding Americans, who fail to realize that criminal conspiracies are conceived behind closed doors under the cover of darkness, are disheartening. It is through the efforts of confidential informants that we have been able to expose the Communist conspiracy in the past and through them we must stake much of the future security of the United States. That is why such a vicious and sustained attack has been made against former Communists who have first-hand knowledge of the secret, diabolical purposes of the Communist party. Those now furthering the campaign of vituperation against witnesses say that the Communist menace is a myth created by those who testified against it. Therefore, to destroy the myth, they feel it is necessary to destroy the witnesses. They refuse to recognize the Communist enslavement of one third of the world's people and one fourth of the world's surface. These witnesses have been cross-examined in our courts, observed by judges and juries and they have been brought under the penetrating eye of the American press. The Communists, bent on weakening our American way of life, have now turned to enlist other individuals and groups to convey propaganda designed to discredit truth. It is through the "pseudo liberals" that the Communists do some of their most destructive work. These fictitious liberals are the individuals who through insidiously slanted and sly propagandistic writings and reports oppose urgently needed internal security measures; conduct a one-sided campaign to discredit government witnesses; present the menace of communism as a myth of hysteria; urge that we tolerate the subversive acts of Communists because Communists are only "nonconformists;" contend that the Communist party is a "political" movement and that it is improper to consider it a criminal conspiracy linked to a world conspiracy to overthrow our government by force and violence. Page 30 Constructive criticism and constant evaluation of methods, procedures and accomplishments in an objective manner is the way to progress. But, the eagerness of some to attack everyone and everything related to the exposure of the Communist conspiracy in this country is hardly the mark of a true liberal. Indeed, the true liberal is opposed to everything communism represents, for the very nature of communism is the antithesis of liberalism. . . . We cannot minimize the hate of the underworld whether it be the underworld of hoodlums or the underworld of subversive traitors and its urgent desire also to identify and discredit the confidential informant. There needs to be a greater effort to protect those who risk their lives for the protection of society. It is almost a daily occurrence for FBI Agents to convey information secured from confidential informants to local police which, for example, cleared up 300 burglaries in one case. In another case, 47 stolen cars were recovered and, in still another instance, a million-dollar robbery was thwarted. Without this two-way street of exchange of information, many crimes would go unsolved. CRIME RATE INCREASING FASTER THAN POPULATION In recent years, the nation's law enforcement agencies have been under severe pressures. The crime problem after World War II followed the trend of history with a steady and alarming increase. The crime picture is a national disgrace. Since the end of the war, the number of serious crimes has increased 62.7 per cent, while our population increased only 21.3 per cent. On the basis of what we now know, the next ten years will witness a ! cent increase in crime over pJJ levels, while our population will crease only 15 per cent. Crime has taken on such pro! tions that one out of every seven homes will be victimized this y1 while one out of every fifteen pers in the United States has been arres for an offense more serious tbm traffic violation. Last year, more f two million major crimes were M mitted, while there were eighteen' one-half million lesser offenses. Of immediate concern is the pi* trend of juvenile delinquency, 'vd I prefer to call adult delinquency cause of the apathy and failure ol many parents to assume their pn" responsibilities. Last year, an mated 519 thousand children, ag through 17, were arrested, or on*] of every 38 boys and girls in this1 group. , Much of our juvenile crime m is due to the fact that we as a >'•' have failed in maintaining family; quick] straint and family discipline and legally "' we cri .
