What is Crime…? (HUM303)

… I asked. And you wrote, “Crime is…”

“… anything not sanctioned or permitted by the laws of society– though the definition is not black and white.”

“… breaking the law and there is usually a victim involved.”

“… an illegal action committed intentionally or unintentionally that causes harm, grief, havoc, or distress amongst others.”

“… from pg. 18 of The Kite Runner: ‘Now no matter what the Mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft… When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness… There is no act more wretched than stealing, Amir.'”

“… an action that is considered wrong or an action that brings punishment as a result.”

“… a person hurting another person, or disturbing or destroying their property.”

“… an action or series of actions taken by an individual or (organized) group of individuals that defies/ does not comply with the established laws of a sovereign state.”

“… injustice.”
