Crime and Punishment Essay
Crime for what, and punishment for whom? May happens in a park and maybe in a room! Maybe at night or afternoon, here or there or close to the moon. A man who makes a crime may be a tycoon or maybe just a vagrant without a small home. Now the problem is for what, for whom do a little vagrant or a tycoon want to be a prisoner or a dark moon? Making crimes comes as a result of many various things in life.
The first and the greatest one is called money as the old expression that says “Money is the root of all evil”, As many people who are in need of money makes different types of crimes just to gain that money, however it’s coming through a wrong way. The second one and the most popular in Egypt is revenge by neglecting the police since people try to fix their problems themselves. So, despite the payer, crime is called crime but in many different ways. Poor people make some small crimes because of money.
They may steal people or may do hacking on the internet to gain what they want. Some of them used to be beggars, others were workers but non of them was born as a criminal. I don’t say they have the right to do this because they were born poor, but they have to work hard to gain money and respect. Well, poor people who have aim in life could be rich without a small crime, but hard work is needed. Not only poor people make crimes, but also rich people do so. Although they are already rich, they gather money through many ways against law.
They steal, murder and do many other crimes against humanity. They can make factories to gain money nonetheless they prefer to gather lots of money through some faster ways such as drugs trade. Rich people want to increase their wealth by making crimes instead of making useful projects. Crimes were extremely destructive in the middle ages due to many things. First, many people didn’t believe in God existence. Second, A huge numbers of them didn’t believe in morals at all. Third, civil wars were widespread all over the world.
People in the middle ages were seeking for food and shelter. So, they did every types of crimes to get food and shelter which are the most requirements for human being. People in the middle ages were really forced to make crimes in their hard era as there was no actual existence of law. Crimes exist too during the age of the industrial revolution as people contend for many different reasons like getting pieces of land to build huge factories or curettage agricultural pieces of land. They have also made many aggressive things to get what they need and to make what they want.
During this age, countries were internally corrupted because they were busy externally as a result of the first and the second world wars. So, during industrial revolution, corruption led to the appearance of plenty types of modern crimes. The 20th century also has many and various types of crimes. Some of them are old and well known for the police inspectors and the others are modern and its first appearance is in this age. However, there crimes exist in this age, It’s not as much as in the past due to the presence of the modern police systems that are able to decrease the average crimes happening in successive years.
I guess that the 20th century is full of joy and happiness as a result of decreasing the number of crimes since the governmental care is better than old ages. Non of the humans was born as a criminal. A criminal is the end product of bad conditions that turn a heart of a baby or a child full of happiness into a dark heart full of sadness. A calm person could turn to aggressive one because of those conditions that affect each and every person living on this earth. Some countries try nowadays to change those conditions surrounding especially poor and homeless people.
So, conditions are the main responsible for making such a criminal. Justice is a small word, but it has a great meaning as it play an important rule in crime and punishment. A judge has to take the balance as a standard before deciding the punishment of each criminal to be perfectly matched with his crime. Justice also make criminals be afraid of the punishment since there are some hard punishments as the penalty death. Such punishment make criminals think hundreds of times before doing any crime.
Well, justice is the only way to balance things as a set of crime and punishment. Small crimes have small punishments as justice works to do so. People who make small crimes are not like others who make great and dangerous crimes. The punishments of small crimes are small like the crimes themselves. A criminal of a small crime have to be sentenced to prison for months or just to pay money as a compensation or any other punishment according to the standpoint of the judge and the crime itself as justice takes place.
So, as a rule in life, ‘A small crime requires a small punishment’. On the other hand, huge crimes requires a strong punishment such as sentence to death. People who make destructive crimes have to be punished without caring about them. Huge crimes are almost represented in torture and murdering crimes. The punishment of such crimes is sentence to prison or sentence to death to make criminals afraid of making those crimes against human rights. I think that those persons with their dreadful crimes don’t have the right to live side to side with other peaceful people.
Global crimes are considered the most destructive crimes. One of the most global crimes that all people do is increasing the ozone hole as a result of the huge amounts of toxic gazes evolving from cars and factories. Second, the coming disaster that humanity would face which is human cloning that is considered a monster trying to destroy the human species. Some great countries are trying to put an end to the first problem, but the second is still getting wider and wider without a considerable action done by the governments of those civilized countries.
So, we need great punishments to put an end to those global crimes that would destroy the universe. Generally, crimes are considered the biggest problems in our daily life. All classes of people make crimes but non of them has the right to do this. Crime is a bad phenomena that appeared in all ages and till now. The punishments on these crimes are each according to its crime, in a way that makes criminals think carefully before doing crimes as they are afraid of the punishment. So, each crime has a punishment.
