Crime, I


Crime refers to acts that are forbidden by law. Murder is a crime in all countries.

Other crimes include shoplifting, misappropriating funds, possessing or trading illegal drugs, sexual assault, driving over the speed limit, and robbing a bank.

But what is considered legal and illegal changes continually.
