linedividerOne of the most common definition of crime is that an offence or a criminal offence, is an act harmful not only to some individual, but also to the community or the state (a public wrong). Such acts are forbidden and punishable by law.
The idea that acts like murder, rape and theft are prohibited exists all around the world, and has a universal moral basis.  What precisely is a criminal offence is defined by criminal law of each country. While many have a catalogue of crimes called the criminal code, in some common law countries no such comprehensive statute exists.
The state  has the power to severely restrict one’s liberty for committing a crime. Therefore, in modern societies, a criminal procedure must be adhered to during the investigation and trial. Only if found guilty, the offender may be sentenced to punishment such as community sentence, imprisonment, life imprisonment or, in some jurisdictions, even death.
To be classified as a crime, the act of doing something bad (actus reus) must be usually accompanied by the intention to do something bad (mens rea), with certain exceptions (strict liability).
While every crime violates the law, not every violation of the law counts as a crime. Breaches of private law (torts and breaches of contract) are not automatically punished by the state, but can be enforced through civil procedure.

There is no such thing as “the law”, there is only power, and a series of rules forced upon people with threats and intimidations by a group of thugs with a monopoly on violence.

A revolutionist is one who desires to discard the existing social order and try another.
George Bernard Shaw

It’s an extremely good thing that money sometimes changes hands.
Carl William Brown

Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
Ernest Hemingway

Many would love to avoid paying tax but only the rich manage to do so. The poor realise, therefore, that they have to pay taxes even for them.
Carl William Brown

The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.
Ayn Rand

Yesterday’s criminals are today’s gentry and today’s criminals will be tomorrow’s gentry.
Carl William Brown

For centuries the death penalty, often accompanied by barbarous refinements, has been trying to hold crime in check; yet crime persists. Why? Because the instincts that are warring in man are not, as the law claims, constant forces in a state of equilibrium.
Albert Camus

I am like any other man. All I do is supply a demand.
Al Capone

It was a strange man, a kind of black humorist, a true philosopher. One day he said: “If my books  could ensure an increase in the number of murders, well, it will mean that they have been quite useful in some way or another.”
Carl William Brown

Make crime pay. Become a lawyer.
Will Rogers

When I sell liquor, it’s called bootlegging; when my patrons serve it on Lake Shore Drive, it’s called hospitality.
Al Capone

The deviant that does not observe the trivial uses of the language is regarded as a poet, on the contrary, the person that doesn’t follow the stupid rules of an unfair legal society is considered a criminal.
Carl William Brown

He who does not prevent a crime when he can, encourages it.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

A murderer is nothing but an enzyme. In the end he does nothing but catalyze an inevitable process. As a good precursor, in fact, he wants to anticipate it.
Carl William Brown

Capitalism is the legitimate racket of the ruling class.
