is there a point to crime? i mean ya the person that commited the crime most times goes to jail when he is caught. so why commit a crime? people in this world just dont understand the goodness the worl has. if the crime rate for the world keeps getting higher eventually the world will come to a end. crime is such a bad and scary thing. if you agree add on your comment. ~thanks

Only if we agree?

The world is a broken place. Some people don't try at all and they take what they need to survive. Some people try and the world spits on them.

Crime is usually a result of injustice. The jail/prison/legal system is also an injustice.

It's a human condition.

Most people only see the criminals that are being arrested and not the criminals that are doing the arresting.

People don't let themselves be happy because they think they're powerless, and so resort to things like crime to fulfill some sort of craving for... something. I guess I don't know. :/

All I know is that usually, the people who are truly happy inside and out don't commit crimes. It's only the people who have troubles and insecurities in the end. It's just what humans are, I suppose...

I also agree crime is 'bad' and undesireable. I guess it's the tactics used to 'correct' crime that I'm trying to spotlight.

Crime is a cause and effect, and the resolution is often the same as the crime to begin with.

If people were less judgmental and hateful, we'd have so fewer problems. lol.

Hateful, yes. Judgemental, no.

I find that people who often think that they're the most accepting are really the most judgemental people I know. I'm judgemental and I'm not afraid to say so anymore. You have to be judgemental, and we can't all be friends. Some people get along better than others, and that's the basis of judgement.

I'm judgmental too. People say I'm not at all, but they don't know me. So yeah, everybody is judgmental, but isn't judgment the basis of all bigotry? That's what most (if not all) wars have been fought for, what most problems stem from, and so a major issue. Yeah, we can't all be happy little friends, but we could at least agree to disagree and accept things and let each other live in peace. Lack of judgment would be much better.

I'd say wars stem from hate, not judgement.

Why do people hate, if they don't judge first? The hate has to come from somewhere.

Generally.. Fear, insecurity.. the deprivation of basic rights.

Humans are some pretty messed up creatures sometimes.
But see, why would anyone be deprived of basic rights? Isn't that mostly cause dumb people keep things away from others?

Yes.. Insecurity. Hoarding for themselves in case of their own deprivation.

I think the Youngbloods had it right.

C'mon people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now... :D

It's totally cliche', but if we shared and practiced compassion, life would be good.

I do AS Law, and the punishment for crime is something that we discuss frequently.

Is community service better than a prison sentance?
Does it just give people an easy escape?

The thing is, there are not many people who commit crimes because they are bored, or have nothing else to do.

The majority of thefts are not shown on the television, or printed in newspapers, and that is because people steal for food, or other basic neccessities.

Having said that, there are plenty of ways that the state can help people these days.
