Poverty is a condition in which a person lacks the financial resources and essential things to enjoy minimum standards of life. Poverty can lead to stress which can eventually make a person commit suicide and can lead to many other criminal activities like robbery etc. Due to poverty, a man is not able to fulfill his and his family’s daily requirements which create a pressure on him and he is forced to choose that path.
There is a direct link between poverty and crime. This is especially among the youth. This is not true that only poor people commit crime or that poverty causes crime but most of the times, a strong relation is found between poverty and a violent crime. If people had money at least for their basic needs, there would be no such level of poverty and no crime.
Property is our right that we inherent from our parents to survive in case of emergency. But how we use it or grab it or do something unlawful is purely our attitude and greed.
Example: imagine a roadside begger offering food is a stray dog even when he hardly has food to eat. Its his attitude of sharing love. Same goes with money .
