  • poverty is a cause of crime

    throughout history statistics have shown that poorer areas are more crime stricken than richer ones. i think it's safe to assume that most crimes start out as a crime out of necessity. It is true that crimes also happen out of greed, but this is not a question on what causes more crime.

  • Poverty IS a crime-causer

    Since people who are poor can't afford all the requirements of a happy and healthy life, they have to steal or take from someone else what they need so that they can have it which is considered as a crime. Sometimes they don't do it because they need it, but because they want something.

  • Poverty causes Crime

    Since people need the money to buy goods to survive, they make crimes to get the money, also, I know all make crimes, but graphics show that a higher percent of people that is through poverty make crimes, in my opinion, if I was through poverty, I would make crimes to get money for food, clothes, shelter, and drinkings.

    For a rich person to make a crime, they would normally be on anger with the person they robbed or hunger of money.

  • I think that poverty is a cause of crime because some people that can't afford food sometimes rob food or robe something

    I think that poverty is a cause of crime because some people that just don't have a living sometimes have to rob places of houses to get food, water ,etc I do think that poor living is a cause of crime.

    Some people are just so frustrated that they lousy don't know what to do so they list rob.

  • People steal money to live.

    Some cases people don't have a choice of living because of money. So one way or another they need money to live so they have to steal to keep alive themselves or their families so they don't die. In another cases people need to assault because of a need they have.

  • It is a cause of Crime

    Poverty is surely the cause of crime, because other people like the government need money for their own goods and somehow they don't want to share that with their country or people that need it. Plus people will do whatever it takes to get money, they will not care about it.

  • 2 Different types of Povertiy

    Physical Poverty doe s not cause crime. Historically, Immigrants are always the poorest, but in fact some of the happiest to be here.
    Poverty of the Spirit is the causal factor. Lack of parents, bad parents, lack of purpose in life leads to Poverty of the spirit, which does lead to crime. Physical poverty can contribute, but is not a root cause

  • A Lack of Character Causes Crime

    Being poor has never been the catalyst for someone to act criminally. I have watched a young boy who had almost nothing go hungry to ensure others had something to eat. When I asked him about this, he said that he would rather do what was right than commit a crime. I have watched people with shelter, food, and amenities steal because they believed they did not have enough things. It is not the poverty that leads to criminal behavior, it is the choices an individual makes that lead to criminal behavior.

  • Crime causes poverty, not vice versa.

    Many people can be in a poor financial situation, but that doesn’t cause them to become violent criminals. However, if someone is a criminal, they are likely to be poor since they won’t have an easy time finding a job. Further, a criminals’ family will be in financial trouble since they will be missing an income from a parent.

  • Best Crimanls Around the World

    The best killers kidnappers and trading weapons were pretty wealthy some were former doctors kidnappers kidnap for fun it may solve some crime but greed is always around the corner. Most crimanls we're mostly abused by their parents and take out their anger on others. Statistics show that 90% of the time their parents our someone close to them have had a crimanl record.

  • Poverty is not a cause of crime

    Because as people are going through a lot of stuff, and rich people do crime too and they are adults or stuff not only people in poverty do crime also big people or even elder people do it sometimes so is not necessarily the people's fault is also from others.

  • Everyone commits crimes.

    Rich and poor and all types of people have committed crimes because some rich people commit crimes only because they need or want money and also poor people make crimes but even more rich people. A quarter of the worlds rich people have their money because of committing crimes for their money.

  • I don't buy it.

    If anything, crime is more associated with rich SCALE economies, which lead to alienation and transactional relationships, stripping away social cohesion that prevents crime.

    A truly subsistence society situation doesn't afford one the leisure of committing crime, and antisocial behavior is far more destructive. In modern economies, criminal behavior can be absorbed far easier, the magnitude of effect is lessened, but also crime is sort of swept under the rug.

    It may be true that within a society and racial groups, relative income is predictive of criminal propensity, but I would argue that relative income is also a dependent function of intelligence, emotional maturity, social cohesion, and other characteristics. In other words, it isn't the poverty causing crime, it is the native characteristics of the population that causes crime and also leads to poverty.

  • Poverty isn't the cause of crime

    Money is the root of all evil.” How many times have you heard that? I’ve heard it more times than I can count. Its a popular thing to say, but I don't think it is true.People (of any income level) who rob, rape, and murder do so because they lack a functioning conscience and moral self-control. It is not material poverty that causes violent crime, but poor character.

  • No, rich people commit crime too.

    No, poverty is not the cause of crime, because rich people often commit crime too. Crime makes you poor of course, because you have to pay court costs and fees, and often lose your driver's license, but there is nothing about poverty that inherently makes someone commit a crime. Some people just do not conform their behavior to the requirements of the law.
