Define Crime

The words of Gary W. Potter, Professor of Criminal Justice and Police Studies at Eastern Kentucky University, in writing about the savings and loan scandals of the 1980s, illuminates some central premises: “There is precious little difference between those people who society designates as respectable and law abiding and those people society castigates as hoodlums and thugs. The world of corporate finance and corporate capital is as criminogenic and probably more criminogenic than any poverty-wracked slum neighborhood. The distinctions drawn between business, politics, and organized crime are at best artificial and in reality irrelevant. Rather than being dysfunctions, corporate crime, white-collar crime, organized crime, and political corruption are mainstays of American political-economic life.”

    just I am lawyer and fighting social justice in south Asia. I find that the system of calculating crime in civilised society is totally farce.

    If the person borrow some money from bank by means of logics.
    And become defaulter than such type of defaulter are not punished in any court of criminals to imprison him for default.

    If 0bama draws thousand of million rupee for election ,it is acceptable to draw government spending or financier funds. but poor one draw the money from any one person without his consent it is big crime in the society.
    cheating , misappropriating the fund from any bank, institution is acceptable in any law. one who do crime for stomach is called as criminal.

    totally in present world stock exchange shareholder investment is one type crime to society. to one reason push shareholder money to hell. share holder become bankruptcy’s. even they suicide.

    promoter makes wrong promises to investor and all of sudden them into tides where there is shore. just join hell or heaven.

    What my finding in I
