Use logic to reduce crime

Regarding the bar chart accompanying the editorial ``Don't Revise the '94 Crime Bill,'' Feb. 7, I have three questions. Aren't many, if not most, crimes committed by repeat offenders? Would elimination of parole for convicted criminals keep them off the streets? Then why do only 9.9 percent of elected city officials think that elimination of parole would reduce crime? We need to look at crime more logically and less politically. John Vance, Madison, Wis.
