Once you admit that most crime is a by product of poverty, which is a by product of a poor education, and that kids today are entitled by educators whose number one concern is themselves, given ribbons for 10th place, and told how wonderful they are, when they aren't. They turn to what works. Crime. Kids have no choice but to find ways to cheat their way through life. Be it smaller crimes like shoplifting, (entitled to it) or harder crimes like robbery or assault, on up.
You've definitely oversimplified things here and though I don't agree with you, I respect the fact that you were able to explain why you think as you do. There is plenty crime coming from the more privileged and educated members in our society and I'd argue that crime is less a product of poverty and more a problem of the human condition known as greed. At the very least, the finger of blame should primarily spend its time on parents and occasionally wag towards "the village" but never the opposite. It's really a breakdown of the nuclear family at the root and the erosion of those ideals that contributed greatly to this generation's social deviants. In others words, women should spend more time makin my sammich.
