A friend is someone that close to us, its not possible that friend might be influence us, a person that in group strongly influences a decision to commit crime. For example, young people who does not fit into expected standards of academic achievement can sometimes become lost in the competition. Children who cannot afford adequate clothing or school supplies may also fall into the same trap. These youth may abandon schoolmates in favor or criminal gangs. In gangs, antisocial behavior and criminal activity earns respect. Criminal gangs are usually focused on material.
A second reason why do people commit crime is because of poverty . It depends on how likely they are going to steal. For example, an extremely poor person is more likely to steal something to eat. Even people have enough to live off steal just out of greed, for example someone steal money or a thing. Another example, is a teenage girl that do not have enough money to buy some jewellery she might go in shop to steal some. The same could be said for a teenage guy who did not have enough money to buy a computer game.
Lastly,Crime committed by individuals can also be a cause of their upbringing and childhood problems, at times individuals can be bullied into doing certain crimes which becomes an addiction, example drugs, prostitution . We need to also consider how these individuals are living, whether their family or friends have something they cannot afford.The main reasons which need to be looked at are individuals upbringing; whether they parents are in full time employment, whether they have a criminal record or are in contact.
In conclusion, I would like to tell again that I strongly agree people commit crime for their selfish reason. As we can see on the point that I have list above.
