Famous quotes containing the words families and/or crime:

    The man who promised to reinforce American families is now eager to pull the plug on Big Bird and Barney.
    Leslie Harris, U.S. political activist. As quoted in Newsweek magazine, p. 23 (December 19, 1994)

    Crime is naught but misdirected energy. So long as every institution of today, economic, political, social, and moral, conspires to misdirect human energy into wrong channels; so long as most people are out of place doing the things they hate to do, living a life they loathe to live, crime will be inevitable.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
