Why is there more crime in poorer areas than in richer ones?

What is crime? If you define crime as steals, fights, kills and something else like that, than you must ask, what is a steal, fight, kill? I think, rich people do crime more than poors, but we can't see it. The crime that the rich do is worse than the poor. They kill many poors with economics. Stealing with strategy...

No rich peoples make serious crimes than poors one of mylot user respond it in better way above,but the problem is rich peoples crime is always covered by money basically especially in developing countries the problem of being poor is because of the worest crime made by rich peoples

I think in poorer areas alot of people resort to crime as an only option or just because they think that there life is bad anyway, crime wouldnt make it any worse. Education is a major factor and i think that richer areas probably have better security protection on their houses as well as more neighboor hood watches and security. Its a shame i see it here where i live, not so much the crime..well actually someone stole the company credit card the other day! but richness and poor. One street you have million dollar mansions and the next you have tin shacks where builders work in.

There are mnay famous criminologists who have tried to answer this question - you should try and find some information written by the chicago school of criminology. Alot of it is about the whole nature v's nurture debate... but if you simply wanted my own opinion, I think crime is higher is poorer areas because there are less job opportunities, less educational facilities and if it's what some people grow up around, it's pretty much inevitable they will follow in the same path.

I know there is crimein rich areas also but obviously there is more in poorer areas because they are morein need of the things they steal or if they kill it is because ignorance..Money can give you a lot of things and most of the time its education...MOST OF THE TIME not all...
