J. Edgar Hoover (1895-1972)

“The cure for crime is not the electric chair, but the high chair.”

“No amount of law enforcement can solve a problem that goes back to the family.”

“Justice is incidental to law and order.”

“We are a fact-gathering organization only. We don’t clear anybody. We don’t condemn anybody.”

“Above all, I would teach him to tell the truth. Truth-telling, I have found, is the key to responsible citizenship. The thousands of criminals I have seen in 40 years of law enforcement have had one thing in common: every single one was a liar.”

“Banks are an almost irresistible attraction for that element of our society which seeks unearned money.”

“Just the minute the FBI begins making recommendations on what should be done with its information, it becomes a Gestapo.”
