Everyone knows what crime is, or thinks he does. Yet actually it is one of the hardest words to define in the English language. Many attempts have been made to formulate an accurate definition, such as “an antisocial act,” or “a failure or refusal to live up to the standard of conduct deemed binding by the rest of the community,” or “some act or omission in respect of which legal punishment may be inflicted on the person who is in default whether by acting or omitting to act. The catch in all these definitions is that they apply equally to things which all of us would agree are crimes, like slitting a throat or holding up a bank, and to other things which we regard as trivialities, like parking too long in a restricted area or spitting on the sidewalk. In most states, for instance, it is a crime to run a lottery. Even a church bingo game is technically illegal, but does playing in one make your grandmother or your maiden aunt a criminal?
Crime is something that exists in every country and unfortunately it will always have place in life of any small town or big city. Latvia is not an exception. It is a small European country, but the level of criminality is very high and is still rising.
