who's responsible for crime?

from the sydney morning herald (thanks to @donnolan and @paperghost for bringing it to my attention)

i know what they meant to say, but really, the way most people would interpret this is that those are the people committing the crime in your area. at a time when trust of authority figures is so low, that caption is really poorly worded. it makes me think the authorities are out of touch with the society they operate in, and that can't be good for their effectiveness.
