Crime & Psychiatry

L. Ron Hubbard is the founder of Scientology. He has described his philosophy in more than 5,000 writings, including dozens of books, and in 3,000 tape-recorded lectures. These are some of his answers to his critics.

When you put criminals in charge of crime, the crime rate rises.

The soaring crime statistics, which the police are battling began to rise when the psychiatrist and psychologist moved into the field of education and law.

It used to be that a crime was a crime. When the police officer did his duty, his duty was done.

Now all that was changed. Criminals are “maladjusted” and it is “all society’s fault that they are” and the police officer is a beast for daring to interface with the poor fellows.

The psychiatrist and psychologist have carefully developed a lawless and irresponsible public attitude toward crime.

First and foremost is that man is just a soulless animal who is not answerable for his own acts. They advertise man as a push-button stimulus-response robot and claim that only they know where the buttons are.

“Underprivileged” people always become criminals according to these “experts” so the thing to do is make the criminal a privileged being with far more rights than ordinary people.

Crimes and extortion, mayhem and murder are done daily by these men in the name of “practice” and “treatment.” There is not one institutional psychiatrist alive who, by ordinary criminal law, could not be arraigned and convinced of extortion, mayhem and murder. Our files are full of evidence on them.

By a mental trick they have hypnotized some politicians into actually believing they are working in “science” and are above the law in that it is necessary that they commit these crimes.

The brutal truth is that these people have not a clue as to what makes the mind work. If they did, they could cure somebody, couldn’t they? But they can’t and don’t. It is obvious, for crime stats have soared since these arch criminals wormed their way into the field of crime.

If you put a complete fake in an engine room to run it your engine room would soon be a shambles.

This is what has happened in society. Instead of letting the police go about their business, a whole new hierarchy of fake experts has been superimposed on the field.

Thus there is chaos.

If these psychiatrists and psychologists and their “National” Mental Health groups knew their business, then crime statistics would be falling. Naturally. But they are not. Crime statistics, ever since these men have taken over in courts, prisons, education and social welfare, have soared to a point where the honest policeman is near despair.

Any experienced law enforcement officer knows more about the criminal mind than any ’12 year educated psychiatrist” or ‘6 year educated psychologist.

Not the smallest of their crimes is that they absorb all appropriations to rehabilitate people and actively campaign against every church and civic group that used to help with the problem.

But then real top level criminals wouldn’t want the problem of crime to be handled. Would they?
