I have borrowed the title for this talk from a book called ""The Crime of Punishment"" by Dr. Karl Menninger, the eminent American psychiatrist. It is not my philosophy that punishment is a crime. It is my belief, however that the methods we adopt to control crime require constant scrutiny. It is also my contention that some of our punitive measures are not only inefficient but unsuccessful and certainly wasteful.
