“Criminal Element” (Flash Fiction)

The scariest people are the ones inside you.

Extrinsic evil is a myth, the product of media hype.

Invented crime figures conceal the identities of the real perpetrators:

law-abiding citizens

tax payers

members of the Chamber of Commerce

Upstanding in the community, invulnerable by common consent.
