Keeping In Touch by Senator Don Nickles 918-374-2231 OLDER AMERICANS PAY MORE FOR CRIME Hours: Mon.-Fri. 9-12, 1~3 Fri. 4:3~7.~0 Closed Saturday Member FDIC No group pays a higher price for the rampant crime in this country than older Americans. Despite the official statistics indicating that Americans 65 years and older are the least likely victims of crime -- compared to the rest of the population--the consequences are often far greater for our most senior generation. New & Used J.R. & Morino Oostlan, ownors i I Store Hours: S*4 p.m, Most crimes committed against the elderly are com- mon thefts, especially purse snatching and pickpocketing. While the amounts stolen are statistically small, averag- ing less than $50, that can be more than enough to dev- astate someone living on a fixed income. By the same to- ken, when an elderly couple finds their social security cbeck has been stolen out of their mailbox, they may be unable to buy the medication they need. Again, statistics indicate older Americans are un- likely to be attacked or injured during ~ crime.'Yef, When an aged person is hit or pushed to the ground, serious injury is more likely to occur. In one case, a woman was knocked to the ground after having her purse snatched. She broke her arm and hip, resulting in astronomical medical bills and eventually forcing her to be institu- tionalized for the remainder of her life. \ :" .;t ," # " CLOSE-OUT SALE ,12995 *,,,,' oO~o~'~ Choice of colors The economic, physical and emotional consequences of being victimized are truly immense for older Amer- icans. Perhaps the worst aspect is the day-in, day-out feel- ing of tear. It dictates the activities of the elderly, often preventing them from traveling by themselves. They miss church, visiting friends and other social activities. We have a long way to go to get the upper hand on crime. But, public pressure is slowly forcing federal and local officials to examine how laws can be strengthened to deter crime. An important anti-crime bill which I sup- ported has recently passed the Senate Called the Com- prehensive Crime Control Act, the bill denies bail to dangerous persons, increases penalties for bail jumping, and provides for uniform sentences. The bail reform is very important when you consider that nearly a third of all robberies, burglaries, and assaults -- crimes often com- mitted against the elderly -- were committed by persons free on some of conditional release last year. However, more still needs to be done, including beefing up crime prevention programs at local levels. Crime is preventable. We can deter it by letting the criminals know they'll have to pay a higher price than their victims Breed Sire, is not to be sold, but some of his descendants will be. , MARCH 31 -- STILLwATER, OKLA.
