In fighting crime, government has limits

The out-of-control crime in Baltimore (“Baltimore Mayor Pugh says crime ‘out of control,’ orders agencies to meet with police every morning,” Nov. 9) brings to mind the following quote by John Adams, one of our founding fathers: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Benedict Frederick, Jr., Pasadena
