  • I think murder, rape, robbery, etc.

    Even though they are also "crimes", I do NOT think of speeding and jaywalking, lol.

  • the first thing I literally thought was "violence." to answer your follow up, things that are labeled crimes are done so usually because they take away the victim's liberties (life, pursuit of happiness and general social utility) and generally are counter to that which has been established as natural social contract/that which keeps a society functioning on a very basic level.

  • ok so the reason why is ask this is becasue all day long i have seen posts of people talking about the new immigrant law passed. and everyone is saying how crossing illegaly is such a horrible crime. but i noticed when asked what comes to mind when u hear the word crime. no one said illegal immigration. it is just not a real crime. a crime is an act against another to inflict harm endanger or otherwise. yes i know what you are going to say "but they came here and are hurting our country" WE are hurting our country. there are jsut as many americans that are dope heads and gangbangers and bad people as there are bad immigrants. However, there is good people in all races as well. and i believe the good people in any race should be given the chance to prove they are worthy of being here. i am not trying to start a debate. i just wanted to prove a point. we can not cast the blame on others for the trouble this country is in.
