    I always wondered if crime was sometimes reactionary to societies need for excitement. for example, do you think that there is such thing as a bored criminal.Or people still do crime to become famous, like the gangsters if the 20's//

    Some do it for fame. Others do it for pleasure.

    Think waaaaaayyy back to the first stolen loaf of bread.

    I'm sure that the other people in the village were seceretly
    happy to have witnessed the first crime because they could
    start the evil practice of gossip and trash-talking,
    which later evolved into the media we know and despise today.

    Fear of crime is something that's whipped up by the media, I know that for sure.

    I think that shit-talking and gossip is what passes for news, literature and culture in the 2K3.
