Today at work around midday I witnessed a real crime, specifically the property crime of vandalism. Someone spray painted some carpet owned by my employer and fled, and next thing I know the police are asking me if someone spray painted the building, and I am honest with them and clarify that this criminal spray painted some carpet outside the building.
These events inspired me to post here today about how to define a real crime.
“Real Crime” and “crime” on this website, as of this post, is defined as “a violent crime and/or property crime, basically a willfully invasive behavior”.
So let us start with property crime, given my story at the beginning. Property Crime is basically willfully invasive violations of someone else’s property. Property Crime examples are as follows:
- Vandalism (what happened at my work place today)
- Hijacking (vehicle theft)
Property crime is often done stealthily, which is why we need police to be vigilant until they notice someone committing one of the above. We also need upstanding citizens who voluntarily call a property criminal out on his or her property crime. Property crime is easily a terrible behavioral investment.
The other kind of Real Crime is violent crime. Violent crime is willfully invasive violations of one or more individuals. Violent crime examples are as follows:
- Rape and/or other Sexual Violence
- Extortion (Obtaining something through Coercion)
Violent crime, as far as I am concerned, are an even worse behavioral investment than property crimes. Naturally, property criminals are impulsive, irritable, thoughtless bullies, and then violent criminals are all a worse kind of spiteful bully – primitive, barbaric, savage bullies. The worst in my mind are the sexually violent criminals, for a very long list of reasons I will discuss in a near-future post. In the mean time though let us conclude with discussion on how science can better solve both kinds of Real Crime:
We need forensic scientists to have memory scan technologies to immediately ferret out the actual perpetrator on top of other forensic sciences, then we need to punish the criminal according to the severity and the intentions of his or her crime.
