Causes of Street Crime
Almost without exception, Americans believe that violent crime is increasing. In the short run, they are right: Violent crime did increase between 1985 and 1990. But what really worries most people is not the short-run trend but their sense that violent crime has been climbing steadily for a long time and that the future will only bring further increases. Such worries are linked to anxiety about drugs, permissive childrearing, hedonism, declining academic standards, the growth of the ghetto underclass, and our collective inability to compete with the Japanese. Taken together, these fears have convinced many sensible people that American society is on the skids. Crime rates have been the drop of decreasing to increasing over time.
The Oxford Dictionary defines a crime as “an action or omission which constitutes an offence and is punishable by law” (BBC).  A crime is a fact, a matter of law and it is not an opinion.

While some do it for the excitement there are others that do it because they are scared or afraid, out of anger, and some do it because they have a sudden desire. The desire for material gain, such as money or expensive belongings, leads to property crimes such as robberies, burglaries, white-collar crimes, and auto thefts. The desire for control, revenge, or power leads to violent crimes such as murders, assaults, and rapes. These violent crimes usually occur on impulse or the spur of the moment when emotions run high.
