Report from a grand jury inquiry concerning federal law violations and the personals involved in the Western District of Missouri. The grand jury heard from 185 witnesses, with 90% of those witnesses being law violators, and determined "there is no organized attempt" at violating federal laws in the district, and those violations "are committed by individuals rather than by a regular organized concert of individuals or by some crime syndicate."
