EXPECT SEVERE PUNISHMENT
At the November term <>f quarter
sessions of certain counties, there were
about a dozen defendants found guilty
on the charges of violation of the fed
eral and state liquor laws. Great in
terest was manifested when the Judge
was ready to pronounce sentence and
as a preface the Judge spoke at some
length.
“In consideration «f and disposition
of the cases involving the illegal sales,
transportation or possession of liquors
in violation of the eighteenth amend
ment to the federal constitution and
the concurrent laws of the state courts
nro inquiring of themselves what they
can do in the imposition of sentences
to teach convicts as well as the public
respect for the law applicable to in
toxicating liquors.
“The loose talk of men and women
on the street, in the shops or at polite
gatherings concerning their pretended
ilesire for liquors does not stop till it
reaches the lowest stratas of society,
where it breeds anew contempt for
the law and furnishes inspiration to
ill the outlaw element of society to
become vagabond traffickers in this
illegal business. Notwithstanding such
flippant conversation, subversive of
the law. whether so intended or not.
it becomes the duty of the court more
Ilian ever before to apply the correc
tive remedies of the law with greater
rigor to the end that every citizen will
tie convinced that the 18th amendment
is a living and essential part of the
organic law of the land.
“More rigorous enforcement of the
law requires a continued activity of
prosecutions for its violation, and in
vites a liberal discrimination between
offenders in the imposition of senten
ces.
“Thus, when one who is convicted
of a misdemeanor is an amateur in
crime he is entitled to more favorable
consideration than the chronic and
habitual offender. First, because there
is more hope of his reclamation; sec
ond. because he is less of a menace
to society.
“The habitual criminal, either lv
successive or repeated violations of the
law. is the sworn enemy of society.
“It does not follow because two men
ate convicted upon indictments elmrg
jng a like offense that they are of like
degrees of criminality. We are justified
in looking through and behind the
printed record. Our inquiry is how do
their lives affect society? fine may he
a chance offender ami prosecute some
honorable employment for a livelihood ;
the other may be a chronic criminal
having no other business than that in
dicated by the offense of which he
stands convicted. He challenges the
law not once, but habitually. It is the
business of courts to convince him and
all his criminal sympathizers that the
law means what it says. All such are
criminal nuisances and must he abated.
“Thus when one convicted of such a
misdemeanor as an isolated breach of
the law it appears that he is otherwise
engaged in honorable employment and
is truly repentant for his offense, so
ciety may he protected by a light
sentence or by his parole. Hut where
the offender has no occupation excepr
(tie violation of (lie law out of which
violation he gains a livelihood, or he
prosecutes the sale of liquor as a busi
ness, he must he regarded and treated
as the enemy of society.
“This sentence court lias before it
ten or eleven violators of the liquor
law. They first represent the youth
ful or casual offender, next the re
peater, and tin' professional. In the
exercise of our discretion as to sen
tences we feel justified in adopting a
wide range of discrimination depen
dent upon the facts and circumstances
above referred to.
“Finally we may observe that if the
liquor laws are to be enforced the vigi
lance of officers is but a small part of
tin1 program. Public conscience must
demand the’r enforcement and tli m
give itself unstintedly to the task.
. “Preachers must preach, teachers
must teach until every citizen of this
land respects and obeys the law. which
includes the eighteenth amendment,
whether he likes it or not.”
