From the McCain (William D.) Pamphlet Collection; In this statement by J. Edgar Hoover to the National Commission on the Causes and Preventions of Violence, he notes the increase in violent crime in the U. S. and examines some of its origins. He believes that the largest cause of violence is a decreasing respect for the law and law enforcement officials. He contends that the Communist Party in the U. S. advocates violence and has encouraged communist participation in civil rights demonstrations and riots. He also mentions the part of the Ku Klux Klan and other white hate organizations in the increasing violence in the U. S. during the late 1960s. Hoover also blames militant black nationalist organizations for the violent crime increase.
