Tony Blair and "Tough on Crime"

In a recent interview, British PM Tony Blair argued that being tough on crime means implementing "preemption" programs to stop anti-social behavior at a young age.  "Because what people tell me - and I am not an expert on this -  is that even of the age of four or five, you can start to tell if children have got a disposition towards anti-social behavior. There are deep-rooted family problems."  He pointed to the need to expand nursery school programs and the Sure Start program as cutting down on future crime.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
