CONSEQUENCES OF CRIMES
Crime is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as an act or the commission of an act that is forbidden or the omission of a duty that is commanded by a public law and that makes the offender liable to punishment by that law.
Laws are designed to protect us and ensure our safety in all aspects of our lives: physical, financial, psychological and social.
Yet not a day does go by that we do not hear of crimes taking place in our city, our province and our country. When a crime is committed, public safety becomes endangered.
Activities such as but not limited to:
fraud, corruption, misappropriation of fund, committed by prominent members of society such as but not limited Politicians, lawyers, Judges, and any and all persons who partakes in such activities and or support such activities through their work, affects our economy as a whole as well a the well-being of the people.
The myth is that Criminal activities derive from being poor, although true in part, it is not true in whole.
In fact people who are behind crimes are usually smart and sophisticated, making use of financial resources to build extensive connections with law enforcement officials.
Authorities have to fight interference from influential powers, and that is often more difficult than the investigation itself or -- it pays more to join in the corruption than attempt to stop it --
Strong political will and government commitment is needed to fight crime.
If the perpetrators are members of the government, and or private corporations, decisive and swift action is needed to restore society's confidence in our System of criminal Justice as well as restore government policy and position on the issue of crimes. Without it we invite tyranny.
It must be said that the consequences of such activities, goes well beyond financial loss and the economic well-being of society.
The consequences of crime exist in a lawless society.
It is important that people feel they are living in a fair and just society and, if economic and crimes are not checked, people would begin to feel increasingly resentful towards those people in power, who we all want to believe are abiding by the laws of the land but unfortunately many are committing egregious crimes.
In the book of judges in the Bible, it gives the readers a good indication of what happens to a society when men refuse to take leadership.
It shows for example that when men do not lead, the women will more than likely step in. They will do a good job, but they will not be able to stem the tide of the decline and eventually, society will go downhill so much that they become victims to all kinds of atrocities.
Knowing the consequences of our actions and lack thereof, is the beginning of the light and beginning of a new day on this earth.
