A better attitude would enable you to see the most important thing that happens in this report: a criminal produces a crime.
Let's turn for a moment to a wonderful passage in Marx's Theories of Surplus Value: "A philosopher produces ideas, a poet poems, a clergyman sermons, a professor compendia, and so on. A criminal produces crimes. If we look a little closer at the connection between this latter branch of production and society as a whole, we shall rid ourselves of many prejudices. The criminal produces not only crimes but also criminal law..."
