RESPONSIBILITY FOR CRIMK
On April 4 Fritz Meinhauson kilted
Mrs. Anna Peters and wounded his
wife. Friday a coroner's jury rec
ommended his discharge from police
custody. The jury "do not hold him'
criminally responsible for the death"
because Meinhauson was intoxicated
when he did the killing.
The killer was drunk. The jury,
presumably, was sober. We can un
derstand how a vicious man will kill
v,hen inflamed with drink. We do not
understand how a jury of sober men
of normal intelligence can absolve
him from blame and let him ,go free.
No wonder Chicago enjoys a record
of a killing a day. This verdict is
an invitation to every brute to go
as far he likes. No one need hang
for killing. Patronize a bootlegger
and get a license to shoot any one
who may displease you.
Of course, this jury was excep
tional. Chicago would indeed be
hopeless if it were not. But the call
ousness to the taking of life, the per
version of moral standards, the
sloppy and misdirected sentiment, the
lack of common sense, and of any
clear conception of moral or social
responsibility exhibited in this verdict
appear persistently in our dealing
with offenders. We complain, and
justly, of many evils in the adminis
tration of criminal justice. But they
would soon be corrected if our social
attitude toward crime were what it
ought to be.
The moral fuddlement shown in
the discharge of Meinhausen is likely
to defeat justice in any case. It may
appear again to cheat the gallows in
the sordid tragedy of the unknown
unfortunate, murdered by the con
ductor, Rtfach. By his own confes
sion this man is without decency.
His wife had gone to a hospital. He
said, therefore, lie was "free," free
to take another woman into their
home and kill her there. If he was
drunk while he did this and has the
good luck to fall into the hands of
such men as freed the slayer of
Anna Peters, he will soon be free
again, free to drink and kill.
A jury that frees a criminal be
cause he has committed crime while
drunk is as dangerous to the com
munity as the criminal himself. Be
ing sober in its offense, we rather
think it is more dangerous. If sober
men will hold a man not responsible
because he has by his own will parted
with his responsibility, there is no re
sponsibility for any one, drunk or
There is something radically wrong
with a good many of us in our at
titude toward crime and punishment,
a social disease that calls for drastic
treatment. Chicago Tribune.
