People commit crime because of selfish reasons. Do you agree? How do people define crime? Some might define crime as an act of offence towards the morality of humans. Others might regard crime as an act that harms the universal human rights. In my perspectives, I think that crime is an offence made towards the law. Therefore, why do people still commit crimes? Some crimes were committed because of hatred, hardships and even because of the people they loved. All in all, I do agree that people commit crimes because of selfish reasons. I am saying so based on several reasons. My first reason to agree with the statement is that people commit crimes because of greed. Greed is one’s desire to have more than what one already has. We can look at greed using different perspectives. One of them is of a poverty-stricken person whose only desire is to fill up his hungry stomach. Since he was born in poverty, it would be nearly impossible for him to pay for his food. So, in order to fill up his stomach, he decided to steal, for instance, a piece of bread from a nearby bakery shop. This is a kind of greed that is used to fullfill one’s basic needs, like to kill the dying hunger. However, there is another perspective that can be used to view upon greed. It is the wanting to lead a luxurious life or even to own something that is beyond one’s financial budget. For example, a person of moderate income would like to own an expensive plasma television which the price is beyond his budget. However, his greed prompts him to own that item by either stealing money to purchase it or to steal the item itself. When the person get caught by any law enforcer, the person will be charged in court for committing a crime. To steal to fulfill one’s desire to own an item which one understands that it is beyond his financial budget is committing a crime by the cause of greed. This, in my view, shows that people commit crimes for selfish reason. Next, people commit crimes because of hatred....
...when I was on the way to school and suddenly I heard a girl screaming for help. Then, I straight away went to look for her. I was shocked when I witnessed a girl was being robbed by a man. This gave me a whole idea of crime awareness which is alarming in the country. In this modernization and globalization era, people go against the laws to commit the immoral activities such as kidnapping, murdering and drug dealing because they are self-centered and they do not care about others' feelings. Thus, do you think it is right to commitcrime for selfishreasons? In my opinion, I totally agree that peoplecommitcrime for selfishreason or for their own benefits because they are craving for money, want to fulfill their lust or jealousy and to survive in their life.
First, I would like to highlight that peoplecommitcrime for selfishreasonsbecause they craving for money. In this rat race society, people tend to commitcrimes to get more money because they want to increase the standard of their living such as having a luxurious life. Unfortunately, some people can make it but some people fail. If they cannot make it...

"Help! Help! Someone help me!". You must ever run into this situation before or you might watch this situation right in front of you. Someone commit a crime and the victim asked for help. Crime is an act harmful not only to some individual but also to the community or the state. The acts like murder, rape and theft are illegal acts for which someone can be punished by the government. All of all, I totally disagree that peoplecommitcrimebecause of selfishreasonbecause there are another strong factor.
First, the life circumstances force people to commitcrime. In this country, not all people born in a wealthy family. There are people who are poor and the statistic of poor people is not low. That’s mean; there are a lot of poor people outside there. Parents might be able to accept the fact that they live in poor condition but the children sometimes cannot accept all this. They might get jealous with their friends that have a better house, nice car or more pocket money compared to them. This will be a factor that trigger them to steal others property. So, it is clear that...
...There are different points of view of what is criminal behavior. Of course, each person has it own opinion. Crime is the human conduct in violation of the criminal laws of a state, the federal government, or a local jurisdiction that has the power to make such laws, according with Schmalleger. The criminal behavior is the antisocial acts that a person commits for different reasons. This means that the person violated laws constantly for a long or short time period. There are many reasons why criminals commitcrimes. Some of the criminals commitcrimes for necessity, others for mental illness, and others for bad influences or just wrong decisions. To get a better understanding of why criminals commitcrimes and why they follow a criminal behavior I interviewed three people. I interviewed two law enforcement officers and one offender. Of course, each of the law enforcement officers have different experiences with criminals, so each of them have different opinions about it. In the case of the offender, he obviously answered something different than the law enforcement officers. All of them think differently about why criminals commitcrimes? Why do criminals continue committing crimes after they are released from prison? And do criminals know what they are doing?

How do people define crime? Some might define crime as an act of offence towards the morality of humans. Others might regard crime as an act that harms the universal human rights. In my perspectives, I think that crime is an offence made towards the law. Therefore, why do people still commitcrimes? There are many reasons why people may commitcrimes and it depends on the type of person they are. Many people will commit a crime everyday whether it be speeding, J-walking, or in some cases, theft and murder. Some crimes are easy to commit and that’s why I think peoplecommit them. I also, refer to the Routine Activities theory. This theory, I believe, does a great job on explaining why peoplecommit most crimes. It says that in order for a crime to be committed three things must have to occur and those being; a motivated offender, lack of a capable guardian, and suitable target. Why I think this does a good job in explain why peoplecommit a crime is because it goes into detail about all aspects that...
...Peoplecommitcrimes for various reasons. These various reasons got to do with social, economic, and cultural reason. These factors trigger an individual to do criminal activities. Social reasons are peer pressure, and school failure. Economic reasons are poverty. Cultural reasons are hatred. The combination of these factors is behind a person whocommitscrimes.
To start with, peoplecommitcrimebecause of social reasons. The social reasons are poor parenting skills, peer influence, drugs, and education failure. Poor parenting skills includes when children are neglected or abused. Also when there are parents who have a permissive or a neglecting style of parenting. Permissive style is when they have no control over their children and have few restrictions, and neglecting style is when the parents are detached and unengaged in the child life. There is juvenile delinquency. This sometimes happens because there are parents who don’t pay attention to what their kids watch. There are kids who are violent because of what is seen on TV this includes violent video games or computer games. Sometimes kids try to copy what they see. What happens between the parents has an effect on the child such as a...
...This essay aims to draw upon some of the elements which make up the idea of crime. There are many aspects to consider, including the definition, hidden crime and conflict within society.
According to the Sage Dictionary of Criminology, the ability to define crime is a difficult concept. It depends at what stage of time we are in and how we perceive things. The idea of crime also draws upon how an individual, or a set of individuals are linked with society, in that they show, or do not show solidarity within civilisation. The definition also draws upon the idea of ‘consensus’ meaning how much an individual agrees with societies’ norms and values (McLaughlin & Muncie, 2012, p.85).
Crime is a difficult concept to define. This is because it varies so greatly. It is not entirely about law-breaking, but also includes a number of other factors, such as the solidarity within society. It is important to remember that the term ‘law’ takes its own definition of, as Des Rosiers & Bittle (2004, p.7) cites within their chapter, “law can be said to have a distinctly social basis; it both shapes – and is shaped by – the society in which it operates.” This means that there are a variety of factors which shape our behaviour within society and how we respond to these behaviours (Des Rosiers & Bittle, 2004, p.7). In addition, crime is further difficult to define due to conflicting...

The Purpose of this Paper is to know that Why PeopleCommitCrime? What are their reasons why they do it? What is the main cause of crime and its imperative relationship to poverty? This is a question which many people wonder about every day.
