Types of Violent Crimes and Why Violent Crime Is Surging?

Posted on |Legal Advice|| 0

When a person thinks about doing a crime, it is called ‘sin’, which happens in the mind. But when that person makes this thought reality and performs a violent action physically, it is called a crime. We cannot predict and know what a person is thinking in the mind. But we can guess what thoughts he/she had when the crime happened. The person who commits a crime is called a criminal.

Why Violent Crime Is Surging?

Crime is surging day by day in society either in developed countries or developing. There are many causes of the increasing crime rate in our society such as going away from religion and God, poverty, unemployment, lack of education and good manners, drug abuse, gang violence, less fear of the law, and a culture of violence. These factors can lead to people feeling hopeless and marginalized, which can make them more likely to turn to crime as a way to survive or get ahead.

A comprehensive study of rising crime in the world, published by the World Bank in 2023, found that the global crime rate has increased by 20% in the past decade, with the most significant rise occurring in developing countries. The study also found that the rise in crime is disproportionately impacting women and children and that it is being driven by a number of factors, including poverty, inequality, and weak institutions.
