OK... so what do the lawyers call 'crime'? Lets look at the stupid list:
1. Terrorism. oh oh, this crime has an 'ISM' attached to it... very broad reaching... Ted Kaczynski was a master wood carver, a skilled chemist, and (according to some noted scholars) a brilliant mathematician. Since Ted Kaczynski was known as the terrorist "Unibomber", those three skill sets can now lead L.E.O.s to suspect CRIMINALITY.
2. Conspiracy, Attempt, and/or Intent. oh oh, this CRIMINAL prefix(?)( ie: Attempted jay walking, Conspiracy to harbor a fugitive, Possession with the Intent, etc.) now delves into the individual mentality of a person... THOUGHT CRIMES... as well as it now allows speculation and hearsay a foothold as 'evidence' based upon 'expert' testimony!
3. Possession (9/10ths of the law). What exactly is possession? The physical handling of a specific property by an individual? It sure appears that way. So, If I take possession of a 100 oz. gold bar, that legally makes it my possession, correct? Isn't that known in the Corporate world as an 'Acquisition'? And if someone disputes the validity of that acquisition, the burden is on them to prove otherwise in a court of 'law'?
Squatting (the act of taking possession of a home stead or plot of land)? Isn't this form of possession known in the Corporate world as a 'Hostile Takeover'? And if someone disputes the validity of that hostile takeover, the burden is on them to prove otherwise in a court of 'law'?
CRIME... JSTOR provides this abstract. I recommend reviewing the data beyond the link for additional info...
The concept "crime" must be restricted to behavior which is so defined by the criminal law, yet assumptions of proper scientific methodology make it necessary to define rigorously the pehnomena under investigation in criminology. Owing to lack of causal homogeneity within the general category "crime" and within the legal categories designating specific crimes, these two propositions present an apparent contradiction. The contradiction can in part be resolved by definition of homogeneous units within these categories, but for complete resolution definitions of homogeneous units must transcend legal categories.
Contradiction.. to steriotypical profiling, known as a 'category'. Resolution to this contradiction - A CRIME AGAINST JUSTICE AND MANKIND - "must transcend legal catagories"
Who here agrees that 'crime' is categorized into little boxes and indexes? misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, felony, gross felony grand felony? Category a,b,c.d.e?
JSTOR reveals that Criminology IS A SCIENCE... O... M... G... SCIENCE that punishes humanity...
What about this little thing called 'SCOPE', a generalized record of EVERY police contact a person has had, which is not a legal record but all the same admissible in court as a character referrence during a fact finding. A case can change, be thrown out, dismissed, but that doesn't mater, if you were booked for murder and found innocent SCOPE still will show you as being booked for murder.
Right off the bat, no mater what future charges you face... 'MURDER' is seen by the minds who judge you... WHICH INCLUDES EMPLOYERS...
So, CRIME... It's what condemns you, whether you know it, accept it, or dislike it.
