  • Poor judgment
    Lack of proper education and great role-models causes many to fail to distinguish right from wrong.
    In most cases offenders don't think they are doing something wrong, it seems right from their point of view.
    Poor judgment is also reflected in knowing it's wrong, but thinking they could get away with it, not getting caught.

  • Lack of love
    Being raised in a dysfunctional family, or coming from a disadvantaged background, or feeling discriminated, none of it alone can cause crime. There are so many others in the world with such conditions, but nevertheless don't turn to crime. However they cause the lack of love and respect for others. That, endorsed with some other factors, can be a major issue related to crime.

  • Poverty
    Poverty is often blamed for leading to crime, however underneath is something more vital - society bombards us with commercial values, making us want more and more material things, to the point when some would do anything (including criminal acts) to get them.
    Unemployment is another factor in this category that contributes to crime through looking ways to earn money by any means possible.
