Dewey's philosophy is generally right on..... feeling relaxed tends to make a criminal feel they're beyond the law. The more time that goes by, the safer the criminal feels, they think that the law is focused on newer, more recent cases, that the heat is off of them. Thus, they stop being quite so careful.
The safer Dick and Perry feel as time goes by and they haven't been caught; the more likely they'll let their guard down and make a mistake. As soon as a mistake is made..... they'll be caught.
Well the obvious is that the safer criminals feel the more comfertable they get and are easy to catch. They make mistakes.
