For the sake of logic, Let's factor in minimum wage Taco Bell/McDonalds whatever jobs as essentially "unemployment. " Hell, Any "service industry" job works here. You're a slave for chump change, And eventually, That's going to piss you off.
Without a decent income, Someone living in poverty can't afford the things they need in life. Like cigarettes, Alcohol, Drugs, Etc. They have to resort to illegal means to secure these needs; i. E. Sending their child behind the counter to steal a carton of cigarettes, Robbing a register for about $80, Identity theft/fraud. . . Etc.
We've effectively created a one-way society, Where multi-billionaires rule over us as though we are a feudal caste system - they exist in place of kings. Millionaires take the place of the dukes and counts, Whereas managers are mere barons, Often miserable, Poor, And overworked.
"Unemployment, " or as I like to say, "underemployment, " is the degradation of the human soul by wage slavery & debt slavery. The soul can and will transcend these chains. Remember what Thomas Jefferson said; "I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, And bid defiance to the laws of our country. "
Unemployment is a major cause in the increase in various crimes in the society unemployed youth due to lack of money and hunger tend to engage in criminal activities, There should be a provision of jobs for the youth unemployed youth are emotional emotional troubled and take their frustrations on other people
To say that poverty “causes” crime is like saying that people chewing with their mouths open is what “causes” me to slap them. What exactly do you mean by “causes? ” Sure, Seeing someone chew with his mouth open may be the reason I choose to slap him. But that doesn’t mean that seeing him chew with his mouth open literally caused me to make that choice.
Put another way, It’s like saying that being horny and sex-deprived and seeing a girl in a short skirt and a low-cut top “causes” a rapist to rape her. Whoah, Wait a minute, Buddy! Now we’re victim-blaming? Following the “poverty causes crime” logic, Maybe the solution to rape is to buy would-be rapists a steady stream of prostitutes. After all, They’re lashing out because of unmet needs! Maybe it’s our fault as a society that rape happens, Because we failed to meet those rapists’ needs.
Not only is all logic against the “poverty causes crime” thesis, But all of the evidence is as well. And we have an overwhelming amount of it.
The “poverty causes crime” thesis does not hold water when we compare crime and poverty rates between racial groups today, Either.
Blacks and Hispanics experience similar levels of poverty. If poverty “causes” crime, We should expect blacks and Hispanics to have similar rates of it. And yet, The Hispanic violent crime rate is only slightly higher than the white crime rate. Both whites and Hispanics commit far fewer crimes than blacks. In 2006, 21% of Hispanics lived in poor households and 37% of young Hispanic men had not completed high school. Compare this with 25% of blacks and 26% of young black men. 3. 8% fewer Hispanics lived in poor households, But 11% more had failed to graduate high school.

Maybe they can build some type of holding facilities for them i don't know the answer of where to put them, . An some of them have no feelings for others no compassion no nothing, Maybe they have some kind of mental issues there, An they will hurt people animals an kids, Just because its there, An they can do whatever an nobody can stop them, . The World We Live in, . Who would have thought, . Not me. Im scared everyday these people will come back to haunt me an kill me, . Because i tell on them but nobodys Listening.
